About the album

Exactly 10 years ago our baroque ensemble (the Berlin ORPHEUS-Opera Magazine called La Tempesta Basel “small, but delightful”) presented its first CD. We began our CD-adventure with the Spanish label Enchiriadis (Madrid), featuring the English cantatas and recorder sonatas by Händel contemporary Johann Christoph Pepusch, which not only brought us a lot of attention but also the highest international praise. This debut album was radio broadcast in many countries, with some reviews comparing the Pepusch-Sonatas with those of the many times more famous Händel. Perhaps this motivated my wife, Muriel Rochat Rienth, to record Händel’s recorder sonatas some years later, this time for the VANITAS label.

The second Tempesta CD (2014) consisted of a Hamburg programme, including Telemann’s church cantatas from the Harmonischer Gottesdienst, in German, and a selection of recorder sonatas. With the master hornist Thomas Müller and Concerto Köln-bassoonist Yves Bertin on board, this CD became a beautiful success too. In Spain it was nominated as one of the top 10 CDs of the month, and it also earned the highest accolades in the USA. And again, inspired by the master from Magdeburg, at the end of 2016 Muriel Rochat Rienth recorded Telemann’s 12 Fantasias for Solo Flute with VANITAS.

In 2019 we are presenting La Tempesta Basel’s third recording. By the way, the name of the ensemble derives from Vivaldi’s famous flute concert, La Tempesta Di Mare. The programme is in Italian, including a world-first recording of a work by Giovanni Fischietti. Our harpsichordist Norberto Broggini (an original member of La Tempesta Basel), found the facsimile some years ago in a private library. Based on his photos Muriel Rochat Rienth produced her own transcription, and in 2012 La Tempesta Basel premiered the cantata in Fribourg (Switzerland).

For this CD La Tempesta Basel is collaborating for the first time with the Spanish label VANITAS.

Es ist nun genau 10 Jahre her, dass unser Barockensemble („klein, aber fein“, so das Berliner ORPHEUS-Opern-Magazin über La Tempesta Basel) seine erste CD vorstellte: mit dem Händel-Zeitgenossen Johann Christoph Pepusch und dessen Englischen Kantaten und Blockflöten-Sonaten starteten wir das Platten-Abenteuer beim spanischen Label Enchiriadis (Madrid), das uns von Beginn an nicht nur grosse Aufmerksamkeit, sondern auch international höchstes Lob einbrachte. Diese Erstlings- Scheibe wurde in vielen Ländern am Rundfunk gesendet, einzelne Kritiken verglichen die Pepusch-Sonaten mit den ungleich berühmteren von Händel. Vielleicht dadurch angetrieben, entschied sich meine Frau, Muriel Rochat Rienth, einige Jahre später Händels Blockflöten-Sonaten einzuspielen- diesmal für VANITAS.
Die zweite Tempesta-CD (2014) umfasste ein Hamburger Programm mit Telemanns Kantaten aus dem „Harmonischen Gottesdienst“ auf Deutsch und ausgewählten Blockflöten-Sonaten. Mit dem Meister-Hornisten Thomas Müller an Bord und dem Fagottisten Yves Bertin von „Concerto Köln“ wurde auch diese CD zu einem schönen Erfolg. In Spanien zu den „10 besten CDs des Monats“ erkoren und in den USA mit höchsten Noten bedacht. Und auch hier: vom Magdeburger Meister inspiriert, nahm Muriel Rochat Rienth Ende 2016 bei VANITAS Telemanns „12 Fantasias“ für Solo-Blockflöte auf.
2019 präsentieren wir also die dritte Einspielung von La Tempesta Basel, dessen Name sich übrigens von Vivaldis bekanntem Blockflöten-Konzert „La tempesta di mare“ ableitet: ein Programm in italienischer Sprache , noch dazu mit einer Weltersteinspielung von Giovanni Fischietti. Unser Cembalist Norberto Broggini (von Beginn an bei La Tempesta Basel dabei) fand das Faksimile vor einigen Jahren in einer Privat- Bibliothek. Von seinem Photomaterial fertigte Muriel Rochat Rienth dann eine eigenhändige Notentranskiption- und La Tempesta Basel brachte die Kantate 2012 in Fribourg (Schweiz) zur Uraufführung.
La Tempesta Basel arbeitet für diese CD zum ersten Mal mit dem spanischen Label VANITAS zusammen.
Es bleiben mir nur noch Dankesworte auszusprechen: meiner geschätzten Gesangspädagogin, Sopranistin Heidi Wölnerhanssen (Basel) für ihre unermüdliche Arbeit, dem VANITAS-Team Andrés Alberto Gómez und Pascual Lorenzo, und nicht zuletzt dem ausgewiesenen spanischen Kulturkritiker und Chefredaktor der Musikzeitschrift SCHERZO (Madrid), Eduardo Torrico, der auf unseren Wunsch hin das Vorwort für dieses Booklett verfasste- wie schon vor 10 Jahren bei Pepusch. So schliesst sich ein Kreis.
Vor genau 10 Jahren präsentierte unser Barockensemble (das Berliner ORPHEUS-Opernmagazin La Tempesta Basel "klein, aber fein") seine erste CD. Unser CD-Abenteuer begann mit den englischen Kantaten und Blockflötensonaten des Händel-Zeitgenossen Johann Christoph Pepusch, was uns nicht nur viel Aufmerksamkeit, sondern auch höchstes internationales Lob einbrachte.

Mit dem Meisterhornisten Thomas Müller und dem Kölner Fagottisten Concerto Köln Yves Bertin an Bord wurde auch diese CD ein schöner Erfolg.
Im Jahr 2019 präsentieren wir die dritte Aufnahme von La Tempesta Basel. Der Name des Ensembles leitet sich übrigens von Vivaldis berühmtem Flötenkonzert La Tempesta Di Mare ab. Das Programm ist auf Italienisch, darunter eine Weltpremiere eines Werkes von Giovanni Fischietti. Unser Cembalist Norberto Broggini (ein Gründungsmitglied von La Tempesta Basel), fand das Faksimile vor einigen Jahren in einer privaten Bibliothek. Basierend auf seinen Fotos produzierte Muriel Rochat Rienth ihre eigene Transkription, und 2012 uraufführte La Tempesta Basel die Kantate in Freiburg (Schweiz).
Für diese CD arbeitet La Tempesta Basel erstmals mit dem spanischen Label VANITAS zusammen.
