French Baroque: Versailles 1700-1740 album by Dorothee Oberlinger was released Mar 01, 2011 on the Deutsche Harmonia Mundi label.

Dorothee Oberlinger & Ensemble 1700 - French Baroque: Versailles 1700-1740 (2011) {Harmonia Mundi}


Whereas in the last decades of the 17th century the conflict between the traditional French and the modern Italian style was one of the main features of music life in France, after the turn of the century the stranglehold of the traditionalists came to an end. Composers felt free to follow their ideal of mixing the best of two worlds, and the result was an amalgam of styles and scorings. This disc with music written between 1700 and 1740 offers some insight into the musical developments at that time.

A second development had a considerable impact upon the evolution of music: the emergence of public concerts. The most famous concert series was the Concert Spirituel, where some of the best music was performed. That not only included music by the main composers from France, but also music by Italian masters. Vivaldi's concertos were particularly popular, and his famous Four Seasons were performed several times. Nicholas Chédeville made use of this, as he published some of his own compositions under Vivaldi's name. He also arranged Vivaldi's opus 8, including the Four Seasons, for musette or hurdy-gurdy, violin, transverse flute and bc. This disc contains extracts from two of these concertos. The musette was a popular instrument in France, representing the countryside. In her liner-notes Dorothee Oberlinger explains this: "The French aristocracy longed for a secluded idyll, for a simple, natural world far removed from that of rigid courtly ceremonial; this idyll imitated what they believed to be the plain and carefree life of country folk". This is reflected in pieces like the Rondeau Le Champêtre by Jacques-Martin Hotteterre, the suite La Noce Champêtre ou l'Himen pastoral by his elder brother Jean, depicting a wedding at the countryside, but also by many character pieces in François Couperin's harpsichord music. One specimen is Le Rossignol-en-amour, which according to Couperin could also be played at the flute.

He almost certainly referred to the transverse flute, and that is also the instrument which played a central role at the music scene in the first half of the 18th century. From that perspective the choice to play all flute parts on the recorder is questionable. The recorder hadn't completely disappeared: it was still played, and Hotteterre's Prélude in g minor was even specifically written for it. And there is certainly no reason to exclude the recorder in performances of French music of this time. In some cases the recorder is not the most logical choice, though, and that is particularly the case with the Concerto in a minor by Michel Blavet. He was a brilliant player of the transverse flute, and recognized as such by, for instance, Johann Joachim Quantz, who visited Paris and heard him play. The concerto reflects his skills, and its character is rather at odds with the limited possibilities of the recorder. The performance by Brian Berryman on a recent disc around Quantz is more convincing and does more justice to the brilliance of the solo part.

The recorder is more suitable for the Trio in a minor, op. 37,5 by Joseph Bodin de Boismortier. He composed for about any instrument in vogue in his time, and in several collections the recorder is mentioned as one of the options. The opus 37 consists of trio sonatas for one treble instrument, a bass instrument and basso continuo. The same is true for the Sonata in d minor by Anne Danican Philidor, who founded the Concert Spirituel in 1725. Like the Hotteterre's the Philidor's were a musical dynasty which played an important role in music life. Anne Danican was oboist, and at that time oboists also played the recorder. In the small number of instrumental works from his pen which have survived he gave the performers the option of choosing almost any treble instrument to play the upper parts. In the foreword of his Couplets de Folie Marin Marais specifically permitted performances on other instruments than the viola da gamba, for which they were originally intended. Only some of the variations are played here.

That is one of the features of this disc. Three movements from Les Saisons Amusantes by Chédeville are played, and these are extracts from two different concertos. The last piece of the programme, the Chaconne in D by Antoine Dornel, is also taken from a larger work: the Suite in D from the opus 1 of 1709. Jean Hotteterre's La Noce Champêtre was originally written for musette and bc. Here the upper parts are shared by recorder and musette, and even a second part has been added. I don't see the need for this nor do I believe this is an improvement of what the composer has written down.

One may conclude that this disc has some flaws: questionable scorings, unnecessary arrangements, chopping up of pieces. The performances don't fall into that category, though: Dorothee Oberlinger is a brilliant recorder player who performs with energy and imagination on nine different recorders. The playing of the ensemble is of the same calibre. And the quality and variety of the repertoire is such that it is impossible to get bored. Nobody interested in French baroque music and recorder aficionados shouldn't hesitate to purchase this disc.
