Heinichen: Dresden Concerti

Heinichen: Dresden Concerti

“Johann David Heinichen was a contemporary of Bach and one of an important group of musicians employed by the Dresden court during the 1720s and 1730s. As well as being an inventive composer, Heinichen was also a noted theorist and his treatise on the continuo bass was widely admired. All the music collected here was probably written for the excellent Dresden court orchestra and most of it falls into that rewarding category in which north and central German composers were pre-eminent. Vivaldi had provided effective models but the predilection for drawing upon other influences, too, gives the concertos of the Germans greater diversity. Heinichen admittedly doesn't so readily venture into the Polish regions whose folk-music gives such a piquancy to Telemann's concertos and suites, but the wonderful variety of instrumental colour and deployment of alternating 'choirs' is every bit as skilful. Your attention will be held from start to finish. Much of the credit for this must go to Reinhard Goebel and his impeccably drilled Musica Antiqua Köln. Some of these pieces might well seem less entertaining in the hands of less imaginative musicians and it would be untruthful to claim that everything is of uniform interest. Each concerto fields its own distinctive wind group drawing variously upon recorders, flutes, oboes, bassoons and horns, the latter always in pairs, in addition to concertante parts in many of them for one or more violins and cellos. There's little need to say more. The recorded sound is first-rate, and Goebel's painstaking essay is fascinating to read.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Taken from the supreme catalogue of Archiv Produktion (supplemented on occasion by Decca L’oiseau lyre recordings) - a comprehensive collection of great music from Monteverdi to Bach.

The music ranges from huge Baroque (Missa Salisburghensis, Venetian polychoral, Charpentier Te Deum) to intimate Baroque (Goldberg Variations, Bach cello suites, solo cantatas) – overwhelming in its impact and emotional content.
