Following Mandolino e Violino in Italia we are now releasing Mandolino e
Fortepiano with the acclaimed mandolin virtuoso Anna Torge, who »inspires
fascination above all with her surprisingly cantabile, most finely
articulated, melodically and harmonically intelligent playing, as is
extremely rarely the case on a plucked instrument« (Neue Musikzeitung
5/2018). A mandolin with four courses is used for the selection of works
heard on this CD. The elegant and sensitive sound of the instrument was
produced with gut, copper, and silver-plated strings plucked with a quill
or plectrum made of bark. In 1804 Johann Nepomuk Hummel composed his
festive and graceful Grand Sonata, which today may be regarded as the last
great work of what is known as the classical zenith of the mandolin. The
Sonata by Gabriele Leone will transport listeners to the sound world of the
galant sensitive style and demonstrate the highly developed performance
artistry of this period. The mandolin’s association with the network of
Europe’s noble families led to its dissemination and popularity in all the
countries of the Continent. For example, the National Library in Lisbon
contains in its holdings Sonatas for Mandolin and Piano by the Portuguese
composer Porto Feliziano. Even the young Beethoven, attracted to the beauty
and charming mandolin playing of Comtesse Josefine Clary-Aldringen, wrote
ravishing works for mandolin and keyboard.
