Rodolfo Richter, Richter Ensemble


Hats off to the performance, which is even better than planned, a masterpiece of expression by an eloquent string quartet! The music of Bach and Webern comes through more powerfully than ever before! Bach was recognized by 20th century composers as a great counterpoint authority. Webern is no exception, and has even been described as "Bach has it all. This project aims to highlight the hidden connections between these two composers by putting them side by side. The Technique of Fugue" is the culmination of Bach's counterpoint art, a work that uses a single theme to encompass all fugal possibilities. While using the highest level of compositional technique, the music has a heightened spiritual dimension without denying human emotion. In the unfinished final fugue, a song with great intonation is combined with an exquisite fugue, and the theme of the BACH sequence appears just before the final passage. Webern was a prolific composer, but wrote works for string quartet throughout his life. His unique style, in which he uses traditional orchestration and counterpoint techniques, but at the same time strips down to the bare minimum of notes in an atonal world, is at once delicate and powerful, and his music, which cannot be described solely in terms of theory, has something in common with Bach's.The last chamber piece, "String Quartet, Op.28," was written in 12-tone technique, including the BACH sequence. The "Technique des Fugues" is divided into sections of different types of music, with Webern's works interspersed in chronological order, all played on gut strings. The close tonal relationship between the two musicians is truly apparent in their playing. The Bach works were also basically played by a string quartet, with two violas added according to the range of the piece, and violone and harpsichord were added depending on the piece. Not only the planning but also the excellence of the performance is noteworthy. Each part is sung with real liveliness. There are not many performances in which the music of Bach and Webern comes so powerfully to life. The CD jacket features Schoenberg's painting "Thoughts. <The CD jacket features a Schoenberg painting, "Thoughts," and is by Rodolfo Richter, a British-Brazilian violinist.
