About the album

VIENNA 1913

The years 1900-1914 were perhaps the most thrilling period in European music history: the cradle of what we now call musical Modernism. This was the time when the great “avant-garde schools” took shape: in Paris, Berlin, Saint Petersburg, and particularly in Vienna. Music branched out into a multitude of aesthetics, styles, and genres, as we can see in in the variety of terms that attempt to describe art in that period: Impressionism, Expressionism, Art Nouveau, Neo-Classicism, Foklorism, Late Romanticism, Symbolism, and others.

Our programme selection for this CD focuses on two works written in Vienna in 1913 – the “summer of the century”, as author Florian Illies calls a pivotal year that put an end to the long 19th century and introduced the somber 20th century.

The two works are Alban Berg’s Four Pieces for Clarinet and Piano op. 5 and Egon Kornauth’s Sonata for Clarinet and Piano. 1913 was the year of several “scandalous” premieres: Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder, Berg’s Altenberglieder, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, and others that were less scandalous: Debussy’s Images pour Orchestre, Max Reger’s Isle of the Dead, Sibelius’s Luonnotar, de Falla’s La vida breve, and Richard Strauss‘s Festliches Präludium.
(Excerpt from the liner notes by Ludwig Holtmeier)

WIEN 1913

Die Jahre zwischen 1900 und 1914 gehören vielleicht zu den spannendsten der europäischen Musikgeschichte. In
ihnen bildet sich heraus, was man heute gemeinhin als musikalische Moderne bezeichnet. Es ist die Zeit, in der die
großen europäischen „Schulen“ der musikalischen Avantgarde in Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg und ganz besonders in
Wien Gestalt annehmen und in der sich die Musik in eine Vielfalt von Ästhetiken, Stilen und Genres auffächert, die
sich in der Menge jener Begriffe widerspiegelt, mit denen wir heute versuchen, der Kunst dieser Epoche habhaft zu
werden: Impressionismus, Expressionismus, Jugendstil, Neoklassizismus, Folklorismus, Spätromantik/Nachromantik,
Symbolismus etc.

Die Programmauswahl dieser CD ist um zwei Werke herum gruppiert, die im Jahr 1913 in Wien entstanden sind, in
diesem „Sommer des Jahrhunderts“ (Florian Illies), der das lange 19. Jahrhundert beendet und das dunkle 20.
Jahrhundert einläutet: Alban Bergs Vier Stücke für Klarinette und Klavier op. 5 und Egon Kornauths Sonate für
Klarinette und Klavier. Es ist das Jahr skandalöser Uraufführungen: Schönbergs Gurrelieder, Bergs Altenberglieder,
Stravinskys Le Sacre du Printemps, aber auch der weniger skandalösen von Debussys Images pour Orchestre, Regers
Toteninsel, Sibelius Luonnotar, de Fallas La vida breve und Strauss‘ Festlichem Präludium.

In duo formation with his brother, Peter-Philipp Staemmler (cello), Hansjacob was awarded the First Prize at the 2009 National Music Competition and chosen for the “Young Artist Concerts” national selection. Hansjacob Staemmler studied piano with Prof. Georg Sava at the Hanns Eisler University of Music in Berlin, completing his training with active participation in masterclasses imparted by Daniel Barenboim and Menahem Pressler. Oboist Burkhard Glaetzner has exerted a decisive influence on Staemmler’s artistic development: with Glaetzner, he has premiered a number of works by major contemporary composers.

Composer(s)

Johannes Brahms

Johannes Brahms was a German composer and pianist. Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria. His reputation and status as a composer is such that he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the 'Three Bs' of music, a comment originally made by the nineteenth-century conductor Hans von Bülow.   Brahms composed for symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles, piano, organ, and voice and chorus. A virtuoso pianist, he premiered many of his own works. He worked with some of the leading performers of his time, including the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim (the three were close friends). Many of his works have become...

Brahms composed for symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles, piano, organ, and voice and chorus. A virtuoso pianist, he premiered many of his own works. He worked with some of the leading performers of his time, including the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim (the three were close friends). Many of his works have become staples of the modern concert repertoire. Brahms, an uncompromising perfectionist, destroyed some of his works and left others unpublished.
Brahms has been considered, by his contemporaries and by later writers, as both a traditionalist and an innovator. His music is firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters. While many contemporaries found his music too academic, his contribution and craftsmanship have been admired by subsequent figures as diverse as Arnold Schoenberg and Edward Elgar. The diligent, highly constructed nature of Brahms's works was a starting point and an inspiration for a generation of composers. Within his meticulous structures is embedded, however, a highly romantic nature.
