Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ladies in rustling gowns and gentlemen in their Sunday best gathered to experience a musical morning's entertainment, listening to a varied program of pieces by Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Clara Wieck, Bernhard Heinrich Romberg and others. Not only was the selection of the pieces quite diverse for a post-church Sunday morning, but also the choice of instruments was often very colorful, including piano, strings, guitar, clarinet, vocals, flute and even glass harmonica plus several small oddities like the Csákány (a walking stick flute) or the Orphica, a portable little keyboard that could nevertheless provide an ideal vocal accompaniment. Many of these Romantic era original instruments are still in the collection of Leipzig's Musical Read more Instrument Museum. You can now hear them on this release in modern recorded sound, which brings you a vivid impression of those Sunday musical matinees from Mendelssohn's time. For any more accuracy you need only add your own rustling gowns and fancy Sunday suit. It was Sunday's finest musical entertainment! - Raum Klang, (Translated from German) Read less
