Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda: Orchesterwerke / Bernius


With this recording, Frieder Bernius once again honors the musical legacy of the Bohemian composer Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the death of the longstanding court kapellmeister of Donaueschingen on 3 December 2016, the focus is on his instrumental compositions. In addition to the Symphony No. 1, op. 7 – a work that has not been available in a current recording for many years – the CD includes the Variations for Clarinet and Orchestra op. 128 and the Concertino for Violin and Orchestra op. 15. It represents a convincing homage to a composer who foudn his place in the transition between the Classical form of a late Mozart and the Romance form of early Romanticism, between lyrically reflective melodies and a “Sturm und Drang” dramatics as well as between homophonic orchestral tuttis and strict counterpoint.

The orchestra of 55 plays cleanly and stylishly. Conductor Bernius’s direction is both sympathetic and idiomatic. Carus’s recording offers lifelike, uncluttered sound.

Les musiciens historiquement informés de la Hofkapelle de Stuttgart répondent avec autant de finesse que de précision à son [Frieder Bernius] geste distingué.
Nicolas Derny, Diaposon, April 2017


This is a work that deserves to be heard more frequently. ... these performances bring real conviction to unfamiliar repertoire.
Jan Smaczny, Discovery Records, April 2017


With Bernius’s keen interest and high musical values, this disc offers performances likely as good as this music will receive.

Die Hofkapelle Stuttgart unter Frieder Bernius widmet sich mit Energie und Feingefühl den Partituren und zeichnet die feinen Strukturen der Musik gekonnt nach.
