Produktinfo

Early on in his career, the violin became an immensely important instrument for Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998). He developed a remarkable skill in composing for the instrument, resulting in a number of highly successful works of which several have been gathered on this disc. During the 1960s, a time when the violin was not the preferred instrument for the avant-garde as it carried too much historical ballast, Schnittke used it as tool for experimentation developing polystylism, an incorporation of historical sources or techniques into a modernistic context.

An early polystylistic work was Quasi una sonata, one of Schnittke's best-known works largely due to its narrative character; Schnittke tells a story filled with contrasts and drama. The version recorded here is that for violin and chamber orchestra. Another violin work – here in an orchestral version – is the Suite in the Old Style, a modern-day pastiche reminiscent of Peter Warlock's Capriol Suite and Grieg's suite From Holberg's Time. Moz-Art à la Haydn with the subtitle 'Play on music' also centres on the violin, using thematic material by Mozart in a manner inspired by Haydn's Farewell Symphony. Closing the disc is the Concerto Grosso No. 6, a chamber concerto influenced by the neo-classical tradition in which the violin and the piano share the limelight.

On this 22nd disc in the BIS Schnittke Edition, the fascinating composer's writing for violin is presented by Ulf Wallin, who appears on a number of BIS titles. Wallin worked intimately with Alfred Schnittke, especially during the preparations for the recordings of the composer's violin sonatas, and is here supported by the vibrant Tapiola Sinfonietta and pianist / conductor Ralf Gothóni, a doyen of Finnish musical life.

Pressestimmen

FonoForum 12 / 06: "Das Spiel mit klassischen Formen beherrschte der Polystilist Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998) wie kein Zweiter, und es prägt auch alle vier auf dieser CD versammelten Kompositionen - teils als fast naives Pasticcio wie in der "Suite im alten Stil", teils mit der für den Komponisten typischen grimassierenden Maske wie in "Moz - Art à la Haydn ". Den interessantesten, weil ungewohntesten Eindruck hinterlässt jedoch das Concerto grosso Nr. 6. In diesem Werk, einem seiner letzten vollendeten, gelangt Schnittke zu einem schroffen, nüchternen und vor allem einheitlichen Spätstil ohne Zitate und Masken."
