Velg antall  


Woldemar Bargiel was Clara Schumann’s half brother and Robert Schumann’s
brother-in-law. Already in the nineteenth century hardly any lexicon failed
to note these relational circumstances, surely more to Bargiel’s
disadvantage since it for many years led to his relegation to the »second
ranks.« It is only recently that the study of his private papers, which
somehow miraculously managed to survive two world wars, has inspired
increasing interest in his oeuvre. His papers include manuscripts as well
as more than 1,500 letters demonstrating that he was a sought-after
personality in the European music world. Moreover, in 2010 Dean Cáceres
published a study based on analytic methods laying the foundation for what
is an impressive demonstration of Bargiel’s personal style  – which the
Orpheus Quartet now thoroughly confirms on its complete recording of the
composer’s string chamber music. Bargiel’s chamber compositions display the
most skillful formal elaboration. Like Beethoven, Bargiel attached more
importance to the elaboration of the thematic material than to the melodies
themselves. On the whole Bargiel may be regarded as one of the most
important academic composers of the first half of the nineteenth century.
During his lifetime numerous fellow musicians, among them Brahms and
Draeseke, highly valued his works.
