BRQ | Vantaa Festival

Late night solos

WEDNESDAY 10.8.2022 21:00 - 22:00
The Church of St Lawrence Reittiopas
Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen-Pilch violin
baroque lute
Marten Root traverso

The late-night solos will include dance-set scores by the Austrian Johann Joseph Vilsmayr (1663-1722) and the Germans Silvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750) and Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Vilsmayer was a pupil of Heinrich Ignaz Biber, and learned Biber's unprejudiced handling of instruments. Only one collection of violin scores has survived from Vilsmayer's output.

Silvius Leopold Weiss was a well-known lute virtuoso in his day throughout Europe, and even today he remains the 'number one' composer of Baroque lute music. Legend has it that Weiss was the subject of admiration and amazement in an improvisation competition between him and J.S. Bach. Weiss worked as a musician and lute teacher in the German hove. If Bach lost to Weiss in improvisation, he has clearly beaten all his contemporaries, predecessors and successors in reputation and esteem. The flute partitas heard in this concert, judging by their playing techniques, date from Bach's Leipzig period after 1723.
