About the album

4 sonates voor fortepiano & violin
Sonata for fortepiano in E-flat major
Trio for fortepiano, violin and cello
You average classical music fan is not familiar with Joseph Martin Kraus as a composer although he was active in almost all genres and was very productive. Kraus (1756-1792) composed sacred music, operas, oratorios, chamber music, symphonies and more in a way that goes beyond his times. The four sonatas recorded here for fortepiano and violin, the sonata for fortepiano as well as the trio for fortepiano, violin and cello are presented as a world premier on this CD using instruments, which were already played during the times of the composer. World première recording:
Vaughan Schlepp, fortepiano (copy after Stein, appr. 1785, Paul McNulty)
Antoinette Lohmann, violin (Gasparo Piattelini, Florence, 1770)
Frank Wakelkamp, cello (copy after Amati, Jaap Bolink, 1982) Played on original instuments.
Een ode aan onbekende componist
De gemiddelde liefhebber van klassieke muziek zal niet bekend zijn met de componist Joseph Martin Kraus, ondanks dat hij actief was binnen bijna alle genres en gedurende zijn leven zeer productief was. Kraus (1756-1792) componeerde kerkelijke muziek, opera’s, oratorio’s, kamermuziek, symfonieën en nog veel meer op een manier die zijn tijd voorbij gaat. De vier Sonates voor fortepiano en viool, de Sonate voor fortepiano en het Trio voor fortepiano, viool en cello hebben op dit album hun wereldpremière, allemaal opgenomen op authentieke instrumenten uit de tijd van Kraus.

De muziek wordt uigevoerd door Vaughan Schlepp op fortepiano, Antoinette Lohmann op viool en Frank Wakelkamp op cello. Schlepp studeerde af met een magna cum laude judicum aan de Eastman School of Music. Zijn interesse in vroege muziek bracht hem naar Nederland, waar hij de muziek van Gustav Leonhardt bestudeerde. Als uitvoerder heeft hij recitals en masterclasses gegeven over de hele wereld op klavecimbel, de 18e-eeuwse fortepiano, de 19e-eeuwse ‘hammerklavier’ en de moderne piano. Hij heeft met meerdere grote orkesten gespeeld en heeft al een groot aantal albums op zijn naam.
Antoinette Lohmann studeerde viool en altviool aan het conservatorium van Amsterdam. Sinds de jaren negentig focust zij zich op ‘historically informed practice’, waarbij de authentieke uitvoering van vroege muziek op oude instrumenten centraal staat. Ze heeft met meerdere ensembles samengespeeld, waaronder het Capella Figuralis, het solisten ensemble van de Nederlandse Bachvereniging.
Frank Wakelkamp studeerde af in Utrecht als docent ‘moderne cello’, maar heeft zich sindsdien ook gericht op vroege muziek bij onder andere de Nederlandse Bachvereniging en het Frankfurter Barockorchester.

Antoinette teaches historical violin and viola as a principal study at the HKU Utrecht Conservatorium and the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. She is also the principal teacher of the Historical Performance department in Utrecht. Antoinette recorded these works on a late 17th-century violin by Egidius Snoeck (Brussels), which is still in its original baroque set-up, using four pure gut strings.
