opis:

multikulti.com:
Działający w Wiedniu kompozytor o korzeniach węgiersko-słowackich jest autorem cenionych dzieł, pełnych finezji i swady, skrzących się wrażliwością na stylistykę epoki, uchodzi za ikonę wiedeńskiego stylu na gitarę klasyczną.
Frank Bungarten, grający na szczególnym instrumencie - contraguitar, który jest kopią historycznego instrumentu Johanna Gottfrieda Scherzera, z drugim gryfem, na którym znajdują się dodatkowe struny basowe. Dzięki temu możemy obcować z muzyką Mertza w pierwotnej wersji, tak miało to miejsce za jego życia.
Piękna płyta wydana w audiofilskiej jakości przez niemiecką Musikproduktion Dabringhaus und Grimm na hybrydowym SACD.

Editor’s info:
What a big sound! The basses on that guitar! For his new recording featuring compositions by the guitarist Johann Kaspar Mertz, Frank Bungarten has selected a very special instrument: a contraguitar designed on the basis of an exemplary historical model by Johann Gottfried Scherzer with a series of additional bass strings on a second neck. As a result, we now can experience the opulent sonority of Mertz's works just as they were originally heard - now for the first time since the death of the "last Viennese virtuoso" in 1856!

Liner Notes
Bass Basis
What a big sound! The basses on that guitar! For his new recording featuring compositions by the guitarist Johann Kaspar Mertz, Frank Bungarten has selected a very special instrument: a contraguitar designed on the basis of an exemplary historical model by Johann Gottfried Scherzer with a series of additional bass strings on a second neck. As a result, we now can experience the opulent sonority of Mertz’s works just as they were originally heard – now for the first time since the death of the “last Viennese virtuoso” in 1856!

Enthusiastic Response
For the posthumously published Fantasies op. 65 and the Harmonie du soir Mertz very evidently reckoned with additional volume in the bass. It is only on the ten-string contraguitar that these works can be played exactly as they are notated. Those who initially may ask how an “Organ Fugue” can be played on the guitar will enthusiastically answer their own question at very the latest when the “pedal tones” make their grand entrance!

Impressive Demonstration
As Mertz’s arrangement of six songs by Schubert impressively demonstrates, he set high standards for his own music. He used not only the originals but also the highly complex and imaginative transcriptions prepared by Franz Liszt for his own very successful piano recitals – a daredevil venture with a remarkable result: the echo effect in the “Ständchen,” though not prescribed by Schubert, is absolutely magnificent!

Opera Opus
Mertz composed a total of thirty-four opera paraphrases for his instrument. His orchestral source material calls for the full sound of the contraguitar, and in Frank Bungarten Verdi’s Ernani too finds an interpreter who makes the difficult technique of the arrangement seem easy. You can look forward to pure musical
