by Jean Fran aix,Program notes,Cello Sonata No 1 in G Major. Domenico Gabrielli 1652 1690, A life long resident of Bologna where he became well known as a cello virtuoso Domenico. Gabrielli was one of the first composers whose works for solo cello are still extant today Among. all the composers in Baroque era Bologna which was known for producing idiomatically virtuosic. compositions for the cello Gabrielli s fame grew as he liberated the cello from its previous role. as an undifferentiated bass instrument thus allowing its individual characteristics to guide music. written for it, In the 1680s when Gabrielli was composing his solo cello works the size of the cello had yet. to be standardized but the works are specified for violoncello not violone or bass violin The. writing requires a virtuosity that would have been difficult to attain on the larger instruments. thus it can be deduced that Gabrielli used a newer smaller cello with wire wrapped C and G. strings when he performed his works In all probability he used the overhand bow hold and. experimented with innovations to the bow that were occurring at the end of the 17th century. It is generally conceded that the composition of cello continuo sonatas began unequivocally. with Gabrielli s last four Ricercares in a manuscript of 1689 He probably also wrote his. two Sonate a Violoncello solo con Basso Continuo in the late 1680s The music historian Igor. Markevitch states Gabrielli made use of all the cellistic technique known at that time and. calls him the Corelli for the cello, Sonata No 1 has four short movements in a slow fast slow fast alternation in sonata da chiesa. form That is characterized by its second movement usually a fugal allegro and the third and. fourth which were binary forms sometimes resembling the dances sarabande and gigue In this. sonata the first movement resembles earlier sectional canzonas. Kitaroidia,Marshall Estrin b 1996, The compositions of Marshall Estrin combine complex musical ideas with rich textures and.
highly nuanced structural elements A student of the composers Justin Dello Joio and then. Robert Beaser at The Juilliard School he believes that literate music is not limited to the concert. hall or opera house but frequently is found in unexpected venues such as theatre and cinema. where it often is overlooked, In addition to composition he has extensive musicological expertise in 19th and 20th century. music of Europe and the United States He is a published music critic and teacher of music. theory and history Beyond his work as a musician Estrin is a scholar in Ancient Greek and. Latin He also has lectured at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Kitaroidia is an Ancient Greek term that means a song accompanied by the kitara an. instrument that was the closest ancient Greek equivalent to the modern cello It was a large. multi string lyre that lay across the player s lap plucked by the fingers It was most often used. by singers to accompany themselves when performing lyric poetry a tradition of ancient Greek. verse focused on love pain merriment and the trials and pleasures of human life This piece. invokes that tradition as the solo performer expresses the broad personal narrative of the music. on a single instrument,note by Marshall Estrin,Cello Sonata No 2 in A minor Op 81. Nikolay Yakovlevich Myaskovsky 1881 1950, Myaskovaky was born near Warsaw Poland the son of an engineer officer in the Russian army. After his mother s death in 1890 the family was brought up by his father s sister who had been. a singer at the Saint Petersburg Opera Although he learned piano and violin with his aunt s. encouragement he entered the military like his father completing his training as an engineer in. 1902 Even so his friends were music enthusiasts who had a significant influence on his interest. in Russian nationalistic music In 1906 he entered the St Petersburg Conservatory where he. studied with Anatoly Lyadov and Niklolai Rimsky Korsakov graduating in 1911 after he had. completed the first of his 27 symphonies His friendship there with Sergei Prokofiev lasted. for the rest of his life After being severely wounded early in World War I he returned to St. Petersburg and continued composing becoming a professor at the Moscow Conservatory a post. he held until his death, Myaskovsky became a leading musical figure in Russia receiving several awards including. People s Artist of the USSR His Symphony No 21 written for the 50th anniversary of the. Chicago Symphony earned him the first of his three Stalin Prizes and is his best known work. Despite that national prominence together with Prokofiev Shostakovich and Khachaturian he. was denounced in 1948 by the Central Committee of the Communist Party which accused him. through his teaching of injecting inharmonious music into the Soviet educational system. However in addition to his 27 symphonies he wrote 13 string quartets nine piano sonatas and. many other works Among the latter were two cello sonatas and one violin sonata The second. cello sonata which Myaskovsky began sketching in the summer of 1948 is one of his last works. Cello Sonata No 2 was written in direct response to the Communist Party s Resolution on. Music that had denounced him It resurrected his good name because he gave it a kind of. studied simplicity that represented a conscious return to the traditional values of Russian music. as defined by the Party He completed the sonata on January 10 1949 and soon arranged to. meet with the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich who had performed Myaskovsky s Cello Concerto. Op 66 four years earlier Rostropovich premiered the piece on March 5 1949 with pianist. Alexander Dedyukhin It was awarded the Stalin Prize Second Class. The first two movements Allegro moderato and Andante cantabile are predominantly lyrical. while the third Allegro con spirito is much more angular and virtuosic The work s melancholy. Romanticism is not as dark and introverted as that of most of the symphonies for which. Myaskovsky is best known In this late work the composer returned to the form and even the. mood of his much earlier ones,Figment No 2,Elliott Carter 1908 2012.
As a child Elliott Carter began writing music when most others his age were just learning to. write words When he was sixteen he showed some of his pieces to Charles Ives who became. a mentor At Harvard majoring in English literature he continued his musical studies taking. theory and composition with Walter Piston and Gustav Holst the British composer who was. a visiting professor After completing his master s degree in music he studied in Paris with. Nadia Boulanger the great teacher whose students included Aaron Copland among many. other American composers Back in the United States he taught at the Peabody Conservatory. Juilliard the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Columbia Yale and Cornell. Universities, Carter s earliest works were admired for their vigor and solidity Although they were obviously. influenced by the music of older composers Stravinsky Copland Hindemith Ives and Piston. they showed an independent original mind at work strongly rooted in traditional harmony rich. in contrapuntal textures and free in rhythm Later after the mid 1940s Carter became one of. the most powerful innovators among living American composers with his music taking on new. weight His principal large scale works which include four string quartets three concertos. three sonatas and two symphonies are vast in scale often demonstrating great complexity and. sometimes almost overwhelming dramatic expression, The cellist Fred Sherry who performed the world premiere of Figment No 2 in Alice Tully Hall. in New York on December 2 2001 has noted that despite its short duration it creates a long. subjective psychological effect It is more sweetly lyrical than the first Figment was especially. because the allusions to the music of Ives give it a nostalgic as well as a majestic quality. Figment No 2 paraphrases parts of two of Ives works the Thoreau movement of the Concord. Piano Sonata and the chamber piece Hallowe en Sherry says Carter thought of Figment No 1. as cello variations highlighting virtuosity whereas he thought of Figment No 2 as a ceremonial. piece Sherry himself thinks as he plays Figment No 2 he hears the sound of bells ringing. prolonging the double stops,Romance in A Major for Cello and Piano Op 69. Gabriel Faur 1845 1924, Faur s musical language bridged a gap between 19th century Romanticism and music that. appeared in the early 20th century His music developed and evolved while retaining its own. fundamental character as he combined his harmonic idiom with its subtle tonality changes and. his melodic gifts with an understanding of contemporary innovations. In a thank you note of late October 1889 to Countess Elisabeth Greffuhle for a stay at her. chateau Faur confided that he had been searching for a musical theme I was looking for a. really piercing musical phrase It was the air I breathed in your park that brought it to me. This phrase can be heard in the opening cello melody of this brief but colorful Romance. although it begins with mysterious sounding chords the cello then soars over an arpeggio. accompaniment giving the composition an illuminating charm The upwardly reaching phrase. leads into a long effusively dreaming cantilena, Romance premiered November 14 1894 in Geneva at a Faur Festival concert with Adolf.
Rehberg playing cello and the composer at the keyboard The work was dedicated to cellist Jules. Griset who hosted frequent chamber music concerts at his home. Sonata for Cello and Piano No 3 in A Major Op 69,Ludwig van Beethoven 1770 1827. There are just ten years between Beethoven s Cello Sonatas Nos 2 and 3 but the distance from. the music of Op 5 to that of Op 69 is enormous By the time of the latter Beethoven had. arrived at the phenomenally prolific period of his Violin Concerto the Rasumovsky Quartets. the Coriolanus Overture and the Emperor Piano Concerto When he sold the publication rights. to Cello Sonata No 3 he grouped it with others that included his Symphonies Nos 5 and 6 and. the Trios Nos 1 and 2 Op 70 It was a time of great growth to solid maturity and profound. mastery when even his few minor works possess a power to which none of his contemporaries. could aspire, Beethoven began writing this sonata in 1806 using ideas that appeared in his notebooks as. early as 1803 he finished it early in 1808 At the first public concert performance in Vienna on. March 5 1809 the cellist was Nikolaus Kraft son of Anton Kraft for whom Haydn had written. his Cello Concerto in D Major The pianist was the young Baroness Dorthea von Ertmann a. Cello Sonata No 2 in A minor Op 81 Nikolay Myaskovsky Allegro moderato 1881 1950 Andante cantabile Allegro con spirit Figment No 2 Elliott Carter 1908 2012 Romance in A Major for Cello and Piano Op 69 Gabriel Faur 1845 1924 Sonata for Cello and Piano No 3 in A Major Op 69 Ludwig van Beethoven Allegro ma non tanto 1770 1827
