ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The first part of this release comprises the integral recording of a collection of fugues composed and published by Johann Mattheson in Hamburg (1735-37) with the German title ‘Die wol-klingende Finger-Sprache, in Zwölff Fugen, mit zwey biss drey Subjecten, entworffen’. This first edition was dedicated to George Frideric Handel, his longtime friend. A second edition was published in Nuremberg (1749) with a French title ‘Les Doits Parlans en Douze Fugues doubles à deux et trois Sujets pour le Clavessin’. Together with these 12 fugues, Mattheson intermixed additional 6 dance-like pieces, probably to make more appealing the music in the eyes of his contemporaries. Someone has suggested that the idea behind this collection may have inspired Johann Sebastian Bach, while preparing ‘the Art of Fugue’, although this may appear as a fanciful hypothesis.

In the second part of this release, you will find a nice selection of 5 Suites for the harpsichord. These are taken from the very known collection of 12 Suites that Mattheson published in two volumes (London 1714) with a French title ‘Pieces de Clavecin | en Deux Volumes | Consistant des | Ouvertures, Preludes, Fugues, Allemandes, | Courentes, Sarabandes, Giques, et Aires. | Composées | par | J. Mattheson | Secr. | 1714’.
