The Revolutionary Drawing Room

The Revolutionary Drawing Room, a string quartet which performs late eighteenth and early nineteenth century repertoire on period instruments, is releasing a new double-CD ‘A Viennese Quartet Party’ to mark their 25th anniversary in 2015.

The idea for ‘A Viennese Quartet Party’ is based on the recollections of Michael Kelly, an Irish tenor who was the original Don Curzio in Mozart’s 'The Marriage of Figaro'. He described an occasion in 1784 in Vienna in his Reminiscences when he heard Mozart, Haydn, Vanhal and Dittersdorf playing quartets together.

A script adapted from these Reminiscences, recorded by the actor Simon Russell Beale, sets the scene for this remarkable moment in time and intertwines Mozart’s ‘Dissonance’ quartet, Haydn’s Quartet Op.50 No.1 and delightful works by Vanhal and Dittersdorf.

“This is a delightful prorgramme...enhanced by Simon Russell Beale's captivating readings of colourful reminiscences by tenor and composer Michael Kelly...Revolutionary Drawing Room...create a lithe, crystal-clear sonority, refreshingly free of jet-setting pyrotechnics...The players also succeed in recreating the shock of the new in the Haydn and Mozart Quartets” BBC Music Magazine, Awards Issue 2015 ****

Viewed together the recordings in this 50-CD set, many of them pioneering ventures, offer the listener a microcosm of early, Baroque and Classical performing styles in their changing manners and inflexions over a period of fifty-five years.

As a dedicated Early Music label, Das Alte Werk embraced the period instrument revival almost from its inception, signing up five musicians who were to play an influential role in the development of historically informed performance over the next twenty-five years. They were the recorder and flute player Frans Brüggen, organist, harpsichordist and scholar Gustav Leonhardt, cellist, viola da gamba player and conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, cellist Anner Bylsma and violinist Jaap Schröder. The name Das Alte Werk became synonymous with all that was at the forefront of scholarly research and period-instrument practice.

Among the most important of the younger generation of musicians signed by the label in the 1990s, were Il Giardino Armonico, Concerto Köln, Tragicomedia, Chanticleer and the harpsichordist/fortepiano player Andreas Staier. All can be heard within this superb collection.

Camerata Schweiz, Howard Griffiths

Johann Baptist Vanhal numbers among the most productive composers of the eighteenth century. Among other works, seventy-seven symphonies and sixty solo concertos by him are documented. He was for quite some time, especially before the works of Haydn and Mozart became more widely known, one of the most popular and even one of the most renowned instrumental composers in Germany.

Here we have three genuinely gripping works (the symphonies in première recordings) by Vanhal performed by the Camerata Schweiz under Howard Griffiths.
