Giuseppe Tartini - Palladians - Fono Forum


14 November 2008
Fono Forum
Michael Gassmann
4 Stars

Obwohl diese CD den reißerischen Titel ‘Der Teufelstriller' trägt, möchten die ‘Palladians' - das britische Quartett aus Violine (Rodolfo Richter), Gambe (Susanne Heinrich), Cembalo (Silas Standage) sowie Erzlaute und Barockgitarre (William Carter) - Giuseppe Tartini (1692 - 1770) und seinen Kollegen Francesco Maria Veracini (1690 - 1768) ausdrücklich nicht zu reißerischen Virtuosen stempeln. Das gelingt ihnen staunenswert: Mit variablem, oft innigem Geigenton und fantasievoll-üppigem Basso continuo warden aus vermeintlichen Schaustücken feinsinnige Meisterwerke. Ein intelligentes Plädoyer für zwei Komponisten der so genannten zweiten Reihe.
