Del Signor Hasse - Works for Flute by Johann Adolf Hasse & Robert Valentine
Del Signor Hasse - Works for Flute by Johann Adolf Hasse & Robert Valentine

Description

Imme-Jeanne Klett clearly demonstrates on this recording that one particular solo instrument had a very special place in the affections of the German baroque composer Johann Adolf Hasse (1699 - 1783): the flute. For no other instrument did he write as many concertos and chamber music works.

Hamburg flautist Imme-Jeanne Klett has made an imaginative selection of these. With the musicians of the Elbipolis Barockorchester she plays a pair of Concertos for Flute, Strings and Basso Continuo, Op. 3, No 7 in G and No 10 in B minor. Also included are the two Sonatas for Flute and Basso Continuo in E Minor Op. 1.10 and D Minor Op. 1.11.

Around the mid-18th century Hasse was a composer who enjoyed an exceptionally high reputation across Europe. A very self-confident nine-year-old Mozart proclaimed that he would one day "become as immortal as Handel and Hasse". Joseph Haydn described him as a "world-renowned... chosen artist of sound", whose positive assessment of one of his own works he would keep "all his life, like gold".

Surprises are provided by the premiere recordings of two Duets for Flutes by the English composer Robert Valentine (c 1671-1747), which Klett also performs - with Nele Lamersdorf. These duets appeared under Hasse's name in 1735 in the collection "VIII Sonates pour deux flutes", published by Le Cène in Amsterdam, although another publisher had previously released them around 1720 as the works of their true composer. This was common practice at the time and shows how unscrupulously publishers treated what we today call copyright!
