Lost and Found

Whitianga, Town Hall, Monk Street

Sunday, 16th December at 3pm


Re-discovered Baroque Masterworks. Music by Platti, Lanzetti, Hasse, Bernier, Zipoli, Audain & Steffani.

 

This programme is inspired by a musical historian’s comment about a now almost-forgotten Baroque composer: "Although [his works] have long been forgotten anyone who desires to take the trouble to excavate them will find enough grains of gold dust there to make an ingot." This quote brings to mind the many Baroque composers whose works were excellent and wildly popular with audiences during their lifetimes, but who are now unjustifiably almost ignored, being overshadowed in recent times by the likes of Bach, Handel, Vivaldi etc. In this concert we present a selection of such lost but excellent works, most of which we have found in our own searches of European music libraries and obscure publishers’ listings.

 

The concert includes: Platti’s Triosonata in G Major for oboe, cello & continuo, selections from Lanzetti’s Sonata in G Major for cello and continuo, Hasse’s Sonata in F major for oboe and continuo, selections from Bernier’s Coffee Cantata, Zipoli’s Elevatione for oboe, cello & harpsichord, a piece for viola da gamba especially composed for Polly Sussex by local Whitianga composer Yvette Audain, and Steffani’s love cantata Hai Finito di Lusingarmi.

 

Performers are Rita Paczian (mezzo & harpsichord), John Green (baroque oboe) and Polly Sussex (baroque cello and gamba).

HAUSMUSIK NZ is a chamber music ensemble performing mainly baroque music on period instruments. Depending on the works to be played the size of the group varies from 3 to 20 musicians. We aim to perform in intimate settings with small audience sizes, thus providing an exceptional, up-close-and-personal, concert experience. Typical venues are large rooms in private houses, small halls and churches. Repertoire may include instrumental sonatas, trios etc, arias, concertos for various instruments accompanied by small string ensembles and small scale choral works. Programmes are characterized by an individual design, often focusing on a particular theme.
