Gunar Letzbor znów zaskakuje - podszedł do muzyki Vivaldiego i jego najbardziej znanego cyklu skrzypcowych koncertów tak, jakby nie słuchał nigdy wcześniej żadnej innej interpretacji. I trochę tak, jakby świadomie odrzucił jakąkolwiek możliwość forsowania szybkich temp w tej muzyce - z zamiłowania, do których (choćby w muzyce Charlesa Moutona) był przecież znany. Tym razem jest więc zaskakująco spokojnie i dostojnie, a świat w tej interpretacji Czterech Pór Roku toczy się zaskakująco powoli.

Powoli jednak nie oznacza wychłodzonych po angielsku emocji - wszystko, każda część i dźwięk się tutaj od nich skrzy. Letzbor gra na swoim cudownym, znakomitym poziomie, a Ars Antiqua Austria imponuje jednak nie tylko pewnością czy techniczną maestrią, ale i - jako zespół - wirtuozerskim opanowaniem instrumentarium. Muzyka Vivaldiego w ich interpretacji jest nie tylko bardzo zdyscyplinowana (zespół tutaj to jeden organizm) - nawet wtedy, gdy przydają mu nieco szaleństwa, ale też bardzo silnie nasycona emocjami, co do tej pory, mam wrażenie, nie stanowi bardzo silnej strony zespołu Letzbora. Tutaj wszystko skrzy się uczuciem i ekspresją od pierwszego dźwięku. W tym nagraniu pokazuje, że jako muzyk i dyrygent naprawdę nie ma słabych stron. No i że potrafi wznieść się ponad utarte schematy,

Koncert skrzypcowy praskiego kompozytora Frantiska Jiranka nie jest tutaj dodatkiem, ale dopełnieniem. Letzbor od lat nagrywający muzykę barokową Środkowej Europy ukazuje w tym nagraniu jej jedność z barokowymi wzorcami, podkreśla jej włoskie korzenie, ale też jej temperament i wyjątkowość. I to jest niczym wisienka na wspaniałym torcie.

Editor's info:
Gunar Letzbor: "It is almost impossible nowadays to perform Vivaldi’s music without any preconceptions, even if one engages with it only rarely. Vivaldi’s sound is ubiquitous. Or is that perhaps the sound of only a few works from his rich oeuvre? When I played through “La Cetra” for the first time on the violin, I found some typical Vivaldi-isms which I really cannot stand. At the same time, however, I was surprised to find a remarkable body of new features waiting to be discovered. One just must not succumb to the temptation of immediately putting the familiar Vivaldi stamp onto everything. I have, in the meantime, formed an even greater friendship with Vivaldi. There is so much to discover amongst his works, away from mainstream sounds. This recording and its preparation: practising in peace and quiet; trying out sounds; receiving and discarding ideas; taking in the texts; rediscovering melodies and, if possible, never listening to any Vivaldi recordings."

Austrian Baroque music takes centre stage in the repertoire of this unusual Baroque ensemble. The music performed at the imperial court in Vienna at this time was initially heavily influenced by the music of Italy, later by that of France; Spanish court ceremonial also had important artistic effects in Vienna. The typical Austrian sound of this era was characterised by the impact of its many royal domains. The political and societal boundaries of Baroque Austria stretched much further than nowadays. Elements of Slavic, Hungarian and Alpine folk music styles had lasting effects on art music, making up its specific sound. But the Austrian sound also reflects the temperament and the character of the people of the time: placed within the melting pot of many diverse cultures, amalgamating Mediterranean zest for life, Slavic melancholy, French formalism, Spanish royal ceremony and the original Alpine elements of the German-speaking region. This mixture of court music and folk music with a dance-like character outlines the typically Austrian sound.

Alongside many concert performances, the early years of the ensemble Ars Antiqua Austria were dedicated to musicological research of Austrian Baroque composers. The abundance of rediscovered works led to several successful premiere recordings: albums featuring the works of R. Weichlein, H.I.F. Biber, F. Conti, G.B. Viviani, G.A.P. Mealli, G. Arnold, A. Caldara, B.A. Aufschnaiter, J.J. Vilsmayr, J.P. Vejvanovsky, J. Schmelzer, G. Muffat, W.L. Radolt, C. Mouthon, J.B. Hochreither, F.J. Aumann and J.S. Bach were met with enthusiastic approbation from the international music press.

Ars Antiqua Austria have been designing their own concert series at the Vienna Konzerthaus since 2002, and at the Brucknerhaus Linz since 2008. The ensemble is leading a cycle of performances arranged over several years entitled “Klang der Kulturen – Kultur des Klanges” (“Sound of the Cultures – Culture of Sound”), consisting of ninety concerts set to be performed in Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Bratislava, Krakow, Venice, Ljubljana, Mechelen and Lübeck.

Recent performances include concerts at the Festival de Musique Ancienne de Ribeauvillé, Berliner Tage für Alte Musik, Festival Printemps des Arts de Nantes, Mozartfest Würzburg (an opera production), Tage Alter Musik Herne, Festival de Musique de Clisson et de Loire Atlantique, Folles Journées de Nantes and Tokyo, Musée d’Unterlinden Colmar, Printemps Baroque du Sablon, Festival van Vlaanderen, Festival Bach de Lausanne, MAfestival Brugge, Bologna Festival, Vendsyssel Festival, Concerti della Normale di Pisa, Resonanzen Wien, Klangbogen Wien, Monteverdi Festival Cremona, Bayerische Staatsoper and the Salzburger Festspiele. The ensemble has also been welcomed in the USA and in Japan.

The CD recording with mezzo-soprano Bernarda Fink (four cantatas by Francesco Conti) was awarded a Diapason d’or only one week after being issued. Gunar Letzbor and his ensemble Ars Antiqua Austria were presented with the Cannes Classical Award 2002 for their recording of the Capricci Armonici by G.B. Viviani.
