Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ricercar's recording of the complete cantatas of Matthias Weckman (RIC 216) is now followed by one of his chamber music. His sonatas for four instruments were intended for the concerts given by the Hamburg Collegium Musicum, the society where the most 'modern' music of the time was to be heard, and were inspired by the virtuoso works by Viennese and Venetian composers. The harpsichord pieces are very much in the style of his friend J.J. Froberger; they foreshadow the works of Bach's generation in that they allude just as much to the style of the French suite as to that of Italian contrapuntal works. The various German songs recorded here are an example of the works that Weckman supplied for the official occasions of Hamburg municipal life.
