« From Prague to Vienna » Duet A Piacere: Aline Zylberajch, Pianoforte Florentino Calvo, Mandolin After dealing with the Baroque and rococo repertoires of an instrument highly-prized by the 18th century young French ladies - as can be seen in so many paintings, Florentino Calvo is carrying on his way throughout the 19th century literature of his instrument. He is accompanied this time on the pianoforte by Aline Zylberajch. The mandolin attracted the Viennese and particularly the violinists who performed works with one instrument or the other according to the circumstances. Charming or more serious pieces began to emerge around 1810 evincing virtuoso technique. *Pianoforte Lipp 1850 (Dominicains museum) Pianoforte Paul & Theo Kobald, from Anton Walter ca 1795 Mandoline bresciane : Carlo Bavassano e figlio LFM12101 La Follia Madrigal -LFM- http://lafollia.com info@lafollia.com Time: 74'40 Digital distribution: IDOL.

Vincenz Neuling (1795-1846), actively took part in Vienna’s musical life as a violinist of chamber music in the early 19th century. The sonata with its furious scherzo and the vigorous Polonaise concluding the variations enriched the soil of Central European music which later gave birth to major works. *Sonata for Fortepiano and Mandolin in G Major Bartolomeo Bortolazzi (1773-1820) was one of the most outstanding mandolinist of his time. He played on a mandolin with four single strings tuned in fifth just like a violin, which he called “Brescian mandolin”. This type of instrument was used for the recording. *Sonata for Fortepiano and Mandolin Op. 9 in D Major Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778-1837) The mandolin and orchestra concerto written in 1799 was dedicated to Bartolomeo Bortolazzi, was the one who performed it when it was created. We have chosen to play the second movement in a restrained version for two instruments: the mandolin and the pianoforte. Sonata for Fortepiano and Mandolin in C Major, Op. 37a Mandolin Concerto in G Major, s28: II. Theme - Var. 1 - Var. 2 - Var. 3 (Andante con variazioni) Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827): four sonatinas. Three of them (C major, E-flat major and D major) must have been written in Prague. Beethoven encountered young Countess Josephine von Clary-Aldringen, a mandolinist for whom he entertained tender feelings. He gave her a few lessons and composed these three sonatinas. The last of the four sonatinas, in C minor, was probably written for Wenzel Krumpholz, a Viennese friend who was both a mandolinist and a violinist.
