music of the week – Johann Ernst Eberlin: Toccata and Fuga in D minor

by ada

Todays music is Toccata and Fuga in D minor, composed by Johann Ernst Eberlin, organist of the Salzburg Dom between 1726-1763. It could easily be mistaken for a particularly uninspired counterpoint study of Johann Sebastian Bach, because Eberlin was sort of old-fashioned, which is something I rather like in music (I will never forgive Richard Wagner what he did to tonality). I find this piece a bit boring though, as well as Eberlin, but in a way he is totally right: you can’t go wrong with good old quintfallsequenz; it never fails to do its job of touching the hearts.

music of the week – Johann Joseph Vilsmayr: Partita V. from Artificiosus Concentus pro Camera à Violino Solo Con Basso bellè imitate

by ada

I admit I don’t know more about Johann Joseph Vilsmayr than Google does and that’s not much; but I have a heart for no-name Baroque composers with only one or two surviving works (or, better, only some fragments); and his music is hilarious.

And, well, he is also from Salzburg.

A page of a book I bought recently. It contains a collection of photos of the Wiener Philharmoniker. I’m not a fan of modern symphonic orchestras; actually, if you want to kill me, just put me in a room where a modern orchestra is playing anything Baroque and don’t let me out when I start screaming; but the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is History Pure, even for me.

Well, I don’t know what this formation of sculptures is called but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with Carl Orff.
