Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Calamus Consort transports the listener with this program to a private concert in late eighteenth century Vienna. The focus at that time was not on technical virtuosity or compositional richness but rather on delight in making music and interest in experiments in sound. With Monica Theiss-Eröd, soprano, Valentina Kutzarova, mezzo soprano and Adrian Eröd, baritone, the recording features duets and trios from operas and musical comedies by Wolfgang Amade Mozart, Franz Xaver Süssmayr, Giovanni Paisiello as well as instrumentals by Franz Anton Hoffmeister and Anton Stadler. The Calamus Consort's varied sound schemes stem from the use of modern copies of the many different historical clarinets, basset and natural horns as well Read more as all sorts of percussions being used at the time.
