About the album

If there is anything that should be noted about this programme, it is its historical improbability At a time when the concept of “authenticity” is discussed, rethought, questioned, denied, what we propose is a historically improbable programme built on criteria of historical probability.

The recorders used on this recording are faithful reproductions of period instruments from several different museums, that were originally made by two different workshops, working perhaps as much as 50 years apart. Little is known about the makers of renaissance woodwind instruments; their instruments were rarely signed and so the small differences in the design, inevitably leads us into the realm of speculation.
Een tijdloze benadering van oude muziek
Dit album bevat Portugese polyfonie uit de 17e eeuw, gespeeld door blokfluitensemble A Imagem da Melancolia. Wat het meest opvalt aan dit album is de historische onwaarschijnlijkheid van de opnames. In een tijd waarin 'authenticiteit' centraal staat kiest het ensemble voor een onwaarschijnlijk programma, gebaseerd historische waarschijnlijkheid.

De blokfluiten die gebruikt worden zijn getrouwe reproducties van traditionele instrumenten uit verschillende musea. De originele blokfluiten werden in twee verschillende ateliers gemaakt, misschien wel 50 jaar na elkaar. Er is weinig bekend over de makers van deze instrumenten, omdat ze zelden werden ondertekend.

A Imagem da Melancolia werd in 2002 opgericht met als doel om het polyfonische repertoire van de renaissance te verkennen. Het ensemble bestaat uit vijf blokfluitisten. Afhankelijk van de aard van hun project kunnen er andere instrumentalisten of zangers worden toegevoegd.

Een nieuw concept van authenticiteit ligt ten grondslag aan de interpretaties van het ensemble. Het gaat hierbij om het grondig onderzoeken van de muziektheorie en uitvoerpraktijk in de renaissance, en het bestuderen van muzikale, literaire en iconografische bronnen. Hierdoor kan de muziek uit de renaissance beter begrepen worden, en goed overgebracht worden op het publiek.

A Imagem da Melancolia wil een nog onbekende klank en muzikale ervaring presenteren aan een modern publiek. Met dit album is dat zeker gelukt. Het ensemble creëert een futuristische ervaring door instrumenten te gebruiken voor vocale partijen.
Die meisten hier eingespielten Werke stammen aus einem Manuskript der 'Biblioteca Pública de Braga', Nordportugal und sind vielleicht ursprünglich für die Orgel komponiert worden. Das portugiesische Blockflöten-Ensemble 'A Imagem da Melancolia' erweckt diese ausgefallenen Werke auf ihrer ersten CD für CHALLENGE CLASSICS wieder zum neuem Leben. Es entsteht ein ganz eigener Klangkosmos, der aus seine Weise die reiche Kultur und Geschichte Portugals widerspiegelt.

A Imagem da Melancolia

A Imagem da Melancolia was created in 2002 with the aim of exploring the renaissance polyphonic repertoire. The ensemble’s core is constituted of 5 recorder players but other instrumentalists or singers can be added according to the nature of the project. A thoughtful study of musical, literary and iconographical sources are the fundamentals of their interpretations, as well as comprehensive research on aspects of renaissance music theory and performance practice (such as tuning, melodic or harmonic theory). A Imagem da Melancolia seeks to bring to modern ears a sound and musical experience unknown to a modern public.
