multikulti.com - ocena * * * * 1/2:
Rupert Ignaz Mayr (1646–1712) to niemiecki skrzypek, kompozytor i kapelmistrz na dworze Maximiliana II Emanuela, Elektora Bawarii. Spędził kilka lat w Paryżu, studiując pod okiem Jean-Baptiste'a Lully'ego, który kształcił także Georga Muffata i Johanna Philippa Kriegera.
Był kompozytorem wszechstronnym, ma w swoim dorobku muzykę sakralną, muzykę instrumentalną, zarówno kameralną jak i orkiestrową, ale też muzykę do przedstawień scenicznych.
Po mistrzowsku łączył w swojej kompozytorskiej koncepcji elementy baroku włoskiego, francuskiego z niemieckim. Na monachijskim dworze rezydowało wielu włoskich kompozytorów, stąd duży wpływ włoskiego baroku w twórczości Mayra, jednak studia w Paryżu u Lully'ego sprawiły, że dysponował ogromną wiedzą na temat tajników francuskiego stylu. Inspirował się ludową tradycją muzyczną z południowych Niemiec. Przy tym, jego kompozycje są technicznie bardzo wymagające, Ars Antiqua Austria imponuje pewnością czy techniczną maestrią i wirtuozerskim opanowaniem instrumentarium.

Sakralne koncerty Mayra na głos, wirtuozowskie skrzypce solo i basso continuo to barokowy rarytas, pięć z nich to światowa premiera fonograficzna. Mimo wyraźnie religijnego charakteru tych dzieł, kompozytor śmiało wprowadza elementy znamienne dla kompozycji świeckich, typowe dla suity barokowej formy taneczne, wirtuozowską brawurę partii solowej oraz silne kontrasty dynamiczno-artykulacyjne. Mayr ściśle splata polifoniczne tekstury, a jego monodie stają się wysoce ekspresyjne, a zarazem wirtuozowskie. Dorobek niemieckiego konpozytora śmiało można stawiać obok dzieł jego słynnych austriackich kolegów, J.K. Kerlla i H.F. Bibera.

Editor's Info:
Ars Antiqua Austria and Gunar Letzbor present outstanding sacred concerts by Rupert Ignaz Mayr (1646-1712) for voice, a virtuoso solo violin and basso continuo, including five world premiere recordings. Mayr, working in Munich from 1683 until his death, is considered a reformer of southern Germany’s Catholic sacred music with his clever combining of the largely protestant sacred concert of the north with the extemporizing concertante style of Italy.

R.I. Mayr’s works were influenced by his study trip to Paris as well as the Italian musicians who dominated musical life at the Munich court. Paired with echoes of Bavarian folk music, Mayr’s music reveals both a typically Austrian blend as well as very personal hues.

At that time, Catholic church music was dominated by the stile antico. Mayr gently expands this ancient art by introducing the concerto form as well as the monody. He elaborately weaves polyphonic textures, his monodies emerging highly expressive, melodious and also virtuosic. Mayr easily joins the ranks of his famous Austrian colleagues, matching the quality of a J.K. Kerll or the Austrian masters around H.F. Biber.


Gunar Letzbor - 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.
