Franz Sonaten Suiten


French Suites and Sonatas 15,-€
Marais, Leclair, Boismortier and Philidor
Recorded in the end of 2009, shall be available very soon.
Supported by the Organeum

Hajo Wienroth traversflute
Huw Daniel violin
Winfried Dahlke original harpsichord by Chr. Zell 1741

This CD was recorded at the Organeum, where the original Harpsichord that once belonged to the Ostfriesian Court is kept. It is one of the three harpsichords built by the famous Christian Zell, very probably the one best sounding of the three. The effort of very much research work on the Ostfriesian Princes, the music at the court and the harpsichord had a direct influence on the whole project and unreveals many secrets about the history and the harpsichord itself, beeing written in a well documented CD - booklet.

Since the year 1965 this is the first recording and the first CD recording at all of this instrument, documenting a very important part of the Ostfriesian history and a striking novelty to the music history in general..  


Joseph Haydn Divertissements & Trios 15,-€
Recorded the end of March / Beginning of April, it is printed yet
A very lively and high - fildelity recording.

Hajo Wienroth (Leer) - original keyed flute ca. 1810
Simon Standage (London) - violin
Poppy Walshaw (London) - cello

The title "Divertissements" can be seen as programmatic, implying 'easy listening'
but of that era and in the best sense of the term. The music
charmingly ranges from pleasing singing Allegros, light-footed
Minuets and swirlingly mercurial Prestos, to Adagios in Empfindsamer
Stil (a term to describe a common style in music of the mid-eighteenth
century, that expresses sentimental and deeply-felt emotions)
Haydn is thus shown with his full sense of humour, spirit and nuance,within the language of Classicism.
