C P E Bach Sinfonia e minor

Tenderness, passion. Tempests and longing. Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s music is intense and emotional. Here, Orpheus Baroque Stockholm performs his Sinfonia in e Minor.


In his time, Carl Philipp Emanuel was one of the foremost and best-known composers, far more famous and beloved than his father Johann Sebastian Bach. In his music, he expressed the aesthetic ideals that were captured in the expression Sturm und Drang – Storm and Longing. It was a counterbalance to the Enlightenment notions of rationality, empiricism and reason. Here, we encounter explosive music with abundant energy and quick changes, as well as melodic beauty and warmth.

 

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was the most prominent of Johann Sebastian’s sons who composed music. At the same time, he broke away stylistically from his father’s Baroque music, which had the weight of counterpoint, becoming instead a representative of emotional rococo music. 


This explosive cello concerto is a development of a piano piece which was transformed into a concerto for flute, and only then into a cello concerto. The middle movement, an expressive andante, is surrounded by two stormy movements in which the musicians occasionally pause as if to gather renewed strength, only to head back out onto the open seas once again.

Beethoven trios for clarinet, cello and piano

Clarinetist Alf Hörberg and solo cellist Johannes Rostamo, both members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, play trios by Beethoven on period instruments and are joined by pianist Bengt Forsberg.


In a recording from the Grünewald Hall at Konserthuset Stockholm, we listen to the two piano trios for clarinet, cello and piano, opuses 11 and 38. Performing here on period instruments makes them sound slightly different than with modern instruments – it brings us back to Beethoven’s own time.


The lighter trio op 11 was composed by the young Beethoven. The theme in the last movement was borrowed from the opera L’amor marinaro by Joseph Weigl, at that time an opera composer à la mode. The melody was so popular in Vienna that you could hear it being whistled by people in the streets. The trio is therefore sometimes named the Gassenhauer Trio, after the Austrian-German word for street, Gasse.


In the trio op 38 Beethoven on the other hand borrowed a melody from himself. The famous theme in this trio’s fourth movement was taken from the Piano Sonata op 49 No 2, one of the less demanding sonatas composed in order for amateur pianists to be able to play it. This warm-sounding piano trio was the result of Beethoven’s own arrangement of the Septet op 20.
