Product description

Product Description

Ensemble Marsyas recording of Johann Fasch's finest chamber music demonstrates why the man and his music were so appreciated in his own lifetime.Founding member Peter Whelan and the queen of the recorder(BBC Radio 3)Pamela Thorby are the soloists challenged with meeting the virtuoso demands of this engaging music.The four-movement Quartet in B-flat Major for recorder,oboe,violin and continuo is among one of Fasch's most popular works;full of catchy tunes and contrapuntal ingenuity in equal measure,virtuosity is demanded from all concerned.The Concerto in F Major for recorder and strings was only recently attributed to Fasch.It is full of characteristic Fasch-isms and of the same dramatic quasi-recitative style as his Bassoon Concerto.

Review

The Edinburgh-based Ensemble Marsyas have made a speciality of the neglected wind music of the 18th century, and here they unearth some spectacularly virtuosic pieces featuring recorder,bassoon and horn by the little-known Johann Friedrich Fasch.This may not be the most startling or inventive music harmonically, but they use the resources of their chosen instruments brilliantly.While Pamela Thorby's recorder is crisp and reliable, the real star is Peter Whelan's bassoon, burbling through its vast range with dancing precision, underpinning the quartets and shining in a C major concerto whose central Largo pits lyrical soloist against slashing string chords. --The Observer

And while we're north of the border let's drop in on one of Scotland's most successful labels, Linn Records, to hear what the Edinburgh based Ensemble Marsyas has been up to in the studio.They're exploring wind chamber music and concertos by Johan Frederic Fasch... showcasing the bassoon in such a way that suggests Fasch must have had a particular player in mind for those virtuosic lines. Meat and drink to Ensemble Maryssa bassoonist Peter Whelan, who makes excellent work of Fasch's C Major Bassoon Concerto as well,and Pamela Thorby's playing in the Recorder Quartet and Concertos here are also powerful reasons to want to the recording. Fasch may seem to be a footnote in baroque musical history,but this delightful wind chamber music allows us to hear for ourselves why his music crops up in quite a few famous libraries.
