When Nikolaus Harnoncourt died in March 2016, the music world lost one of its most influential and charismatic conductors. Harnoncourt was a pioneer of historically informed performances and the repertoire is enriched for the approach it took to it. Deutsche Grammophon commemorates the first anniversary of his death in March 2017, presenting two of his legendary recordings again on vinyl.

Harnoncourt’s landmark 1963 recording of secular, sacred, vocal and instrumental pieces of the High Renaissance from the Court of Emperor Maximilian I – Heinrich Isaac, Josquin Desprez, Ludwig Senfl, Jan Obrecht, and others

Coincides with the 500th anniversary year of Heinrich Isaac (c.1450–1517), the Habsburg emperor’s illustrious court composer – included on this release is his beloved choral setting of “Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen”.

Including original repertoire notes by Harnoncourt from the 1964 LP release, including notes about musical sources and the period instruments, with sung texts and translations (English/German/French).

Karl-Ernst Schröder & Crawford Young (lutes)

The Schola Cantorum in Basel has long championed the imaginative exploration of early music, creating expertly-researched programmes and encouraging superbly-performed interpretations with a close attention also to the most appropriate recording conditions. Such was the case with 'Amours amours amours', a disc of lute duos starting from music composed in the fifteenth century, recorded in 2001 by Karl-Ernst Schröder and Crawford Young and deservedly justifying its reissue now, courtesy of Glossa.

The two artists – and sadly Schröder was to die not long after the original release of the recording, which continues to serve as a memorial for him – had delved into the world of Renaissance chansons, frottole, basses danses and tenors, and the known arrangements of such original vocal and instrumental works. They had conjured an eminently satisfying selection which demonstrated both the legacy of this widely-practiced performance activity and also Schröder and Young’s own improvisatory talents.

Beginning with the early musical prints of Ottaviano Petrucci, the lutenists have made use of Francesco Spinacino’s arrangements as a starting point for considering two, three and four-part versions of pieces by Josquin, Agricola, Ambrosio and Isaac and many other composers of the time, with the theme of love – as with the disc’s title – wordlessly flowing through the whole programme. The recording is accompanied by illuminating notes by Martin Kirnbauer and the two artists themselves.

“This programme of about 30 short pieces resurrects a common practice whereby one lutenist would improvise, sometimes extravagantly, on a previously composed piece...The title suggests the prevailing sentiment of much of this singularly alluring music, beautifully played and brilliantly improvised.” Sunday Times, 14th June 2015

“Their playing is unfussy, and expressive without the blight of self-indulgent rubato. The overall sound is well balanced, their ensemble spot on, and their lightness of touch for non-obtrusive rapid-fire divisions is a delight.” Early Music Review, September 2015

Capella de la Torre, Katharina Bäuml

‘Luther’s Wedding Day’ attempts to reconstruct a programme of music that may have been played at the great German religious reformer’s marriage. It is performed by the highly-regarded early music ensemble Capella de la Torre and its leader/musical director Katharina Bauml. The disc features pieces by some of the greatest composers of the time including Josquin Desprez, Heinrich Isaac, Ludwig Senfl, and Johann Walter.

A historically “exact” reconstruction for the music to Martin Luther’s wedding is obviously not possible, but the programme presented on this recording does its best to keep to what was both probable and likely. Luther himself possessed significant theoretical and practical musical skills. In fact he even wrote his own texts and melodies, the best known example being “Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott” (A Mighty Fortress is Our God), a paraphrase of the text of Psalm 46. He greatly admired composers like Josquin Desprez, and was personally acquainted with several others. He also collaborated very closely with Johann Walter, and was a close friend and correspondent of Ludwig Senfl.

The ensemble Capella de la Torre gathers together musicians who have made a name internationally as specialists for historically informed performance. The ensemble’s ambition is to perform the rich and hitherto insufficiently appreciated music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance on authentic instruments and thus make it live again in the general cultural awareness. The group’s first album for Challenge Classics, Vinum et Musica (CC72554), was released in 2012.

“Taking us through processional and service to the subsequent celebratory dances with an appealing blend of three-part vocal polyphony and arrangements of sackbut, organ, shawm and dulcian, its programme draws from Luther’s own songs. Educational and entertaining.” The Independent, 22nd February 2014 ****

Sour Cream: Frans Brüggen (recorders), Kees Boeke (recorders & viola da gamba), Walter van Hauwe (recorders), with Isabel Álvarez (voice) & Toyohiko Satoh (lutes)

In June 1993 the three founding members of Sour Cream, the avant-garde recorder trio created originally in 1972, got together again in order to make a new recording: the ensuing double album became the stuff of legend. Frans Brüggen, Kees Boeke and Walter van Hauwe, joined by Isabel Álvarez (voice) and Toyohiko Satoh (lutes), went into the studio with a programme called 'The Passion of Reason' which made a journey through music with a scientific slant to it, influenced by the concept of the mediaeval quadrivium or the convergence of music, arithmetic, astronomy and geometry. With pieces by composers ranging across five centuries, from Guillaume de Machaut to JS Bach, by way of Solage, William Cornysh and Heinrich Isaac, together with the mysterious repertory from the Baldwin manuscript, the members of Sour Cream raised a fascinating and hypnotic edifice in sound, taking the listener back to the speculative world of Hermetic philosophy and alchemy. Initially released on the Attacca label by Sieuwert Verster (the co-founder of the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and inseparable colleague of Frans Brüggen), 'The Passion of Reason' was reissued by Glossa in 1997. After several years of the album being out of stock, we are pleased now to be able to bring this recording, timeless like so few others, back into our catalogue.

Isabella d’Este was brought up in the midst of an extremely active musical court. After her marriage in 1490 to Francesco Gonzaga Duke of Mantua she began to remodel the Duke's relatively modest musical establishment in imitation of that of her father, Hercule. She was herself a gifted musician and favoured above all the viol. Not only was the viol the favourite vehicle for aristocratic instrumental performance, but it was the ideal accompaniment to the voice.

Under Isabella’s patronage the tradition of improvised song accompanied by the singer on a lira da braccio developed into the frottola, shared between two, three or even four viols. In employing Italian composers, and herself performing their music, Isabella played a key role in the development of this new music, and of the consort of viole which developed alongside it.

This disc presents a selection of music from the circle of Isabella. The repertoire is centred around the Milliare Songbook - a hand written songbook compiled in 1502 by, or for, one Ludovico Milliare. This contains a wonderfully rich cross section of the vocal and instrumental repertoire loved by the d’Este family of Mantua. An attractive feature of the collection is the inclusion of sacred pieces, mostly non-liturgical and apparently intended for private devotional use.

The instruments used for this recording have been thoroughly researched by examining documented and iconographic evidence - for example contemporary paintings of the period. The custom-made viols are cannot be called "copies"; they are recreations using the best information and scholarship available. This CD offers a rare opportunity to hear the very different sound these instruments make - rather different from their more modern counterparts from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
