"Qualities of precision, communicative warmth (evident in 'An wasserflüssen Babylon' in weightlessness): the radiant complicity of exchanges between Andrea De Carlo and Luca Guglielmi is coupled with a singular approach, particularly in the three sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord."

About the album

This musical project was born in the very first meeting with Luca Guglielmi, the night before a concert in Geneva when, through the music of J. S. Bach, a sincere human and musical affinity was revealed that needed neither words nor looks. Now, at a distance of a time made fluid by the hours of listening to the tracks, I see that we had met in Bach’s profound italianness, in the singing of the melodies that danced in counterpoint, in the rhythmic undulation of his writing, but above all in the composer’s human and eternal spirituality. Although in the manuscripts the three Sonatas for Viola da Gamba are accompanied by the harpsichord, we imagined the Viola da Gamba conversing with different keyboard instruments that Bach had at his disposal: Matthias Griewisch copy of a Mietke harpsichord (kindly loaned by the Bach Museum in Leipzig), Kerstin Schwarz copy of a Silbermann piano and the organ in the Frankenstein Dorfkirche, built by Gottfried Silbermann in 1753, few years after Bach’s death.
In J. S. Bachs drei Sonaten BWV 1027, 1028 und 1029 für Viola da Gamba und Cembalo erkunden Andrea De Carlo und Luca Guglielmi neue Dialoge mit Gottfried Silbermanns Hammerklavier und Orgel. Eine Erinnerung an das, was nicht geschehen ist, eine originelle und fesselnde parallele Reise in Bachs Werk, in seinen tiefen und schwungvollen italienischen Stil, in die im Kontrapunkt tanzenden Melodien, in seine menschliche und ewige Spiritualität.
Dieses musikalische Projekt entstand bei der allerersten Begegnung mit Luca Guglielmi, am Abend vor einem Konzert in Genf, als sich durch die Musik von J. S. Bach eine aufrichtige menschliche und musikalische Verbundenheit zeigte, die weder Worte noch Blicke brauchte. Jetzt, mit dem Abstand einer Zeit, die durch das stundenlange Anhören der Stücke fließend geworden ist, sehe ich, dass wir uns in Bachs tiefem Italienertum, im Gesang der Melodien, die im Kontrapunkt tanzten, in der rhythmischen Wellenbewegung seiner Komposition, aber vor allem in der menschlichen und ewigen Spiritualität des Komponisten getroffen haben. Obwohl die drei Sonaten für Viola da Gamba in den Manuskripten vom Cembalo begleitet werden, stellen wir uns vor, dass die Viola da Gamba sich mit verschiedenen Tasteninstrumenten, die Bach zur Verfügung standen, unterhält: Matthias Griewischs Kopie eines Mietke-Cembalos (freundlicherweise vom Bach-Museum in Leipzig zur Verfügung gestellt), Kerstin Schwarz' Kopie eines Silbermann-Klaviers und die Orgel in der Frankensteiner Dorfkirche, die Gottfried Silbermann 1753, wenige Jahre nach Bachs Tod, gebaut hatte.

Composer(s)

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and hundreds of cantatas. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.  Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
