A strong opponent of oppresion in all its forms, Leonardo Balada met Martín Luther King in 1967. His Sinfonía en Negro is a powerful response to King‘s subsequent murder as well as a description of the black people’s journey in the Americas from slavery to freedom. Both the Sinfonía and the virtuoso Doble Concerto use Balada‘s pioneering blend of ethnic music with avant-garde techniques, while Columbus: Images for Orchestra is a free adaptation of four contrasting scenes from his acclaimed opera Christopher Columbus (8.660237-38). In 2007 Leonardo Balada won an Award in Music from the American Academy of Arts and Letters which helped to make his recording possible.

La obra fue arreglada para un conjunto a viento firmados por Johann Nepomuk Wendt, y citados por Mozart en su Don Giovanni. En complemento del programa: tres ‘divertimenti‘ inéditos al disco.

Vicente Martín y Soler, nicknamed ‘the Valencian Mozart‘, was a famous in his own day as his Austrian contemporary. The ‘very rare thing’ depicted in his biggest success, the opera Una cosa rara, is the combination of beauty and honesty, in the person of a charming peasant girl! The work was arranged for wind ensemble by Johann Nepomuk Wendt, and Mozart quoted from it in Don Giovanni. This programme is completed by premiere recordings of three divertimenti.

Mozart y sus contemporáneos a menudo debían satisfacer los pedidos musicales de la aristocracia para todo tipo de eventos mundanos. Sin embargo, el músico de Salzburgo supo otorgar una dimensión mucho más profunda a un género tradicionalmente sin demasiadas pretensiones y la Gran Partita, sin perder su finalidad lúdica, es una magnífica muestra de ello. Paralelamente, losDivertimentos de Martín y Soler sobre Una cosa rara, y de Went sobre El Rapto en el Serrallo, completan un retrato certero de lo que era, en el siglo XVIII, la música de noble entretenimiento.

Along with his contemporaries, Mozart was often called upon to fulfil de aristocracy’s musical requests destined for all kinds of society events. He, for sure, knew how to provide a much profounder dimension to any genre which did no normally have too many expectations placed upon it and the Gran Partita, without losing its playful aim, is a superb example of this. In a similar way, theDivertimentos of Martín y Soler on Una cosa rara, and of Went on Die Entfübrung aus dem Serail, fill out an accurate portrait of what was, in the 18th century, music meant for noble entertainment.

Aaron Silberman made a fasting contribution to music through his generous endowments to innumerable performers at various stages of their careers. He found particular pleasure in supporting emerging talent, as evidenced by his early recognition of the Alexander String Quartet.Renée Silberman

The clarinet used in the present recording is a modern version of a bassett-clarinet.

Mozart wrote his clarinet works for his friend and brother mason Anton Stadler. He was a virtuoso of the clarinet, interested in improving and developing this instrument, still quite new in the musical world of the 18th century.Stadler and the instrument maker Theoden Lotz where probably trying to improve the low register of the clarinet and built one that had an extended range in the low register, playing a 3rd below a normal clarinet (being a ‘C’ the lowest note). This instrument has been named as the ‘basset-clarinet’.

Physically, it is an ‘A’ clarinet with an extended bottom joint. This not only allows one to play lower notes, but also by changing the proportions of the tube to change its tone quality, becoming similar to the one of the ‘basset-horn’ (an extended clarinet in ‘F’, very popular at that period and Mozart‘s favourite wind instrument).

The bassett-clarinet became obsolete afterStadler, possibly due to tuning problems, or, more likely, to being uncomfortable to play and manage (like the bassett-horn). No composer is known to have written for it again.

The 1st edition of the concerto K622 by Albert in 1801 (the original manuscript is lost) was an adaptation for an ordinary ‘A’ clarinet. There is evidence, though, that demonstrates that it was written originally for a basset-clarinet. One of them is a manuscript sketch of the 199 first bass. In this sketch he writes de solo bars for a ‘basset-horn in G’, and changes after the orchestral introduction to ‘A’. In the present recording, most of the lower passages are based on this sketch and on the reconstructed edition for bassett-clarinet by Barenreiter.

For the quintet K581 (the manuscript has also been lost) the evidence is not so strong to prove that it was written for a ‘bassett-clarinet’. We know that Stadler used the instrument in many concerts where this piece appeared. Some of the lower passages are based on arrangement of the piece for piano and strings dated from the same period. In any case, the ‘bassetty’ quality of its sound seem to be more appropriate for this music.
