Leila Schayegh, Vaclav Luks, Felix Knec - Franz Benda: Violin Sonatas (2012)
EAC | APE (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 67:15 | 414 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Glossa | Catalog: GCD 922507

Leila Schayegh, Václav Luks, and Felix Knecht present four of Franz Benda’s violin sonatas (and a movement extracted from another sonata) from a collection of 34 ornamented examples of the genre included in manuscript form among the holdings of the Berlin State Library. The ornamentation, provided for both the slow movements, for which Benda earned a reputation, as well as for faster ones, could serve as a sort of compendium of German period practice (Schayegh’s own notes suggest that the works hail from about 1760).

Julien Benda - Il tradimento dei chierici. Il ruolo dell'intellettuale nella società contemporanea
Italian | 2012 | 267 pages | ISBN: 8806191187 | EPUB | 0,5 MB

Anche se la questione ha radici lontane, che affondano nell'"affaire" Dreyfus che negli anni a cavallo tra Otto e Novecento divise la cultura francese ed europea in due schieramenti inconciliabili, "Il tradimento dei chierici" (1927) resta uno dei testi seminali sul ruolo (e l'autonomia) degli intellettuali: un libro che mette il sale della polemica su ferite tuttora aperte. Contro la crescente barbarie delle società occidentali e il loro impoverimento culturale (la subordinazione del pensiero agli interessi del capitale), Benda difende un ruolo dell'intellettuale "custode di valori" al sevizio di universali come la ragione, la verità, la giustizia. I "traditori" contro i quali si scaglia sono gli sciovinisti, i razzisti, i fascisti di ogni gradazione. Ma anche i rappresentanti di quella corporazione intellettuale che fa politica al riparo dalla sua supposta superiorità e imparzialità, i servi di ogni regime o ideologia, anche quando mossi delle migliori intenzioni. Con la prefazione di Davide Cadeddu.

The enduring popularity of Rossini's operas is a testament to their wit and inventiveness, every overture a superb portrait of each ensuing drama. There is none more popular than the farcical comedy of Il barbiere di Siviglia, but themes of flirtation and disguise can also be found in Il Turco in Italia, contrasting with the heroism and revenge of Armida and the cunning exploits of Le Comte Ory. This edition, of which this is the final instalment, has gained wide critical acclaim, with Volume 2 (8.570934) described as "an unalloyed winner" by ClassicsToday.

This entertaining CD takes its name from a cantata, which forms one part of this recital devoted to the music of Georg Benda (1722-95), one of a distinguished family of Bohemian musicians who settled in Berlin in the 18th century and became part of the German enlightenment. Georg became Kapellmeister at Gotha in 1750 and gained widespread approval for his compositions and for his skill as a violinist, oboist and keyboard player. Mozart admired Benda’s music and carried two of his melodramas with him on his travels. Hyperion have put together a pretty record containing piano pieces (played here expertly on the fortepiano by Timothy Roberts), lieder and the above cantata for soprano or tenor by two of our best ‘chamber singers’ (which does not mean that they do not sing other genres, only that they excel in this kind of intimate sphere). It might be a good idea not to play the whole hour of music at one go but (say) to have half before dinner and half afterwards.

Vi sono opere filosofiche che non rispecchiano i bisogni dell’epoca e neanche quelli della specie. Vengono come da un’altra parte e non si annunciano nemmeno. Ad un tratto qualcuno, non si sa come, entra in rapporto con esse anche se tutto fa pensare che non vi possa essere nessun rapporto. Quale rela­zione infatti si può immaginare tra questo Essai e un comune individuo d’oggi? Quale legame fra un comu­ne filosofo d’oggi e quest’opera? Sembra tutto sconta­to: essa è inutile alla specie, all’individuo, alla filoso­fia. …
