About the album

The Leupold Trio made its debut in 2003 at the International Guitar Festival ‘SaitenSprünge’ in Bad Aibling (Germany) and was an immediate hit. The trio is made up of members from the Combattimento Consort Amsterdam. The Leupold Trio performed in prestigious concert venues, like the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) as well as numerous museums, historic manorhouses, picturesque churches and castles. They appeared with great success on the Ravello Festival 2009 (on the Amalfi coast, Italy), in Granada (Spain) and in Algeria. Sören Leupold studied in Osnabrück and Cologne. He can be heard playing the chitarrone, Baroque lute and guitar with some of the leading early music ensembles such as Cantus Cöln, Musica Antiqua Köln, Collegium Vocale Gent and La Fenice in Germany, The Netherlands, Flanders and England. The violinist Eva Stegeman is concertmaster of Sinfonia Rotterdam and director of the European Union Chamber Orchestra, which she conducts from her first-seat position. In 2003, she founded the annual International Chamber Music Festival The Hague, of which she is artistic leader. Stegeman plays a late 17th-century violin made by Giovanni Battista Rogeri (Brescia). Wouter Mijnders is at home with the entire cello repertoire, from the Baroque to the present day. He has made a specialty of playing the violoncello piccolo and recorded with the Combattimento Consort Amsterdam the first CD of the unique Concerto in C for violoncello piccolo by Sammartini. With the bowed and plucked strings, these style-conscious musicians perform the most beautiful of the well-known and most exciting of the lesser known works of the 17th and 18th centuries. ‘Absolute harmony and perfect magic in sound,’ wrote the Oberbayerisches Volksblatt in 2004. ‘A veritable feast for the senses.’
Het Leupold Trio brengt het verleden tot leven
Dit album bevat diverse sonates van Italiaanse componisten uit de Renaissance en Barok, uitgevoerd door het Leupold Trio.

Het bijzondere van deze opnames is dat de strijkinstrumenten worden begeleid door een chitarrone, een type luit uit de barok, in plaats van het gebruikelijke klavecimbel. Veel van de sonates zijn geschreven voor trio, met gelijkwaardige partijen voor de viool en de cello.

Het Leupold Trio richt zich op het improviseren en experimenteren, iets wat belangrijk is binnen het repertoire dat ze uitvoeren. Het resultaat van het experiment op dit album is dynamisch en levendig: door de sprankelende muziek komt het verleden tot leven.

Het Leupold trio bestaat uit Sören Leupold, Eva Stegeman en Wouter Mijnders, drie voortreffelijke musici die specialisten zijn op het gebied van oude muziek. De musici maken alle drie deel uit van het beroemde Combattimento Consort Amsterdam. Daarnaast treedt Sören Leupold op met enkele van de belangrijkste ensembles op het gebied van oude muziek, bijvoorbeeld Cantus Cöln, Musica Antiqua Köln, Collegium Vocale Gent en La Fenice.
Die älteste Musik auf der vorliegenden CD stammt aus der Zeit um 1600. Z.B. frühe Werke von Cima und Frescobaldi, danach Werke von Marini, Castello und Bertali und mit Corelli und Vivaldi landet man im Barock. Das Leupold Trio entdeckte eine Lücke in der vom Cembalo dominierten Aufführungspraxis Alter Musik und experimentierte damit, Violin- und Cellosonaten auf der Chitarrone zu spielen. Dabei wählten sie aus dem Triorepertoire gern Musik für zwei ebenbürtige, konzertierende Stimmen aus. Das Ergebnis könnte eindrucksvoller und lebendiger nicht sein.
