MATTHIAS WECKMANN (1616-1674): 11 Sonatas for the Hamburg Collegium Musicum.

Catalogue Number: 07Y011

Label: CPO

Reference: 555 217-2

Format: CD

Price: $16.98

Description: In these pieces Weckmann pushed all of the instruments, but especially the trombone and cornettino, to their absolute limits. An important characteristic of the sonatas are the strong contrasts. Typical features are: abrupt changes of tempi, meter, and tessitura (sometimes accompanied by echo effects), close and wide harmonies, and alternating polyphonic and homophonic passages in which three instruments occasionally play parallel chords as in a faux bourdon. Musica Fiata; Roland Wilson.
