MARTIN CHRISTIAN SCHULTZE (18th cen.): 6 Sinfonie da Camera a 4 Istromenti.
Catalogue Number: 01W023
Reference: 555 255-2
Description: Published in Paris in 1773, these are very much in the Italian style, and in them we find very many polyrhythmic elements running through all the movements – for example, frequent triplets against sixteenths. In addition, at the time Schultze must have had an outstanding gambist by his side who was able to render this extremely demanding gamba part. The violin part with many double stops and virtuosic passages likewise presupposes some talent. By contrast, the flute part more probably would have been written for an amateur. Ensemble Klingekunst.
