Music for Emperors
02 September 2008
Yesterday I had the great pleasure to share a concert in the Church at Elsinor Castle,(Hamlet Castle) with the great Dhrudbad singer from India, Ashish Sankrityayan.
The idea with the concert was to have music from the same period from India and Europe presented at the same concert. In India it was Akbar the great, and in Denmark Frederik 2 and Christian 4 who roled in the last half of the 1500 century.
I have never heard this fantastic art form, dhrudbad singing, in a concert before, so it was fanatsic to hear this Master of the art perform.
The music is so complex that it is not possible to write down, so it is not existing in notation, only by descriptions, and learning from a Master to his disciple! Ashish trained 20 years with his Master before he made his first concert 7 years ago.
...To meet or not to meet,- thats the question!

Mario Giuliani
18 May 2008
Mario Giuliani. Works for violin and guitar. Duo Concertante - violin: Kim Sjøgren; guitar: Lars Hannibal. OUR Recordings . 8.226904

Mario Giuliani (1781 - 1829) is today mainly known by lovers of the classical guitarmusic. When he lived he was an unavoidable Italian guitarvirtuoso and  one of the last great classical spokesmen for his instrumet until its re-rise in the beginning of the 20. century.

After a succesful  European Tour, he settled down in Vienna in 1806 while the italians more loved  opera than classical guitar, and here he was soon a part of the Viennese establishment. Apart from performing others music he also composed, and three of his works for violin and guitar is  recorded by Duo Concertante,  Kim Sjøgren on violin and Lars Hannibal on guitar. Even the guitar,as mentioned, was Giulianis prefered instrument, it is interesting enough the focus on this cd is on the violin, where the guitar more has an accompagnement function.

The music is sweet, languorous, seductive, and particulary romantic! The comparison could be with todays informel and artistic un ambitious  easy listening, that do not move the listener but is a delicious back ground sound. But being played so clever like on this recording of two such good musicians as Sjøgren and Hannibal, you can only nod your head in appreciation. The three works are rhytmical  well modulated and melodic inspired, and it is great that those recordings from 1988 is released on a cd that is perfect for loaf Sundays!
