Description
This recording of The Usable Virtuoso was the first of this music by Johann Mattheson (1681–1764) to feature the Baroque violin, with basso continuo being provided by archlute and organ. Mattheson spent 15 years with the Hamburg Opera, being one of its most highly acclaimed singers, and so it follows that these 12 chamber sonatas for violin or flute know their way around a highly melodic musical line. In 1715, he became cantor of the Hamburg cathedral and in 1719 he was appointed Kapellmeister to the court of the Duke of Holstein. Mattheson was a strong advocate of the newer galant style, deeming the older style of the 17th century to be outdated. The Usable Virtuoso as a whole is somewhat operatic, with the first half of the sonatas being mainly in the major scale (i.e., sprightly and cheerful) while the second half turns more bittersweet. In the 11th sonata, the music reaches its emotional climax and briefly "dies." The concluding 12th sonata begins with an "Alla Corelli" movement, in tribute to the great Italian master.
