Saint-Georges, Joseph Bologne de (1745-1799)

Symphonie Concertante in C major, Op.9 No.1 (AE384) 
Edited by Allan Badley
Score (Hardcopy): $65.00/ (PDF): US$48.75
ISBN: 978-988-8529-98-8 (print) / 978-988-8529-99-5 (digital)

The present work was issued in Paris by Le Duc in ca 1777 and thus belongs to the most productive period of Saint-Georges’ career both as a composer and violin virtuoso.

The work was probably composed for performance with the Concert des Amateurs but that it was also performed at the Concert spirituel is evident from Le Duc’s title page: SECOND OEUVRE DE / DEUX / SYMPHONIES / CONCERTANTES / Pour deux Violons principaux, / deux Violons ripieno /, Alto et basse / deux Hautbois et deux Cors, / ad Libitum. / COMPOSÉES / PAR M.R DE S.T GEORGE / Ces Symphonies not été executées au Concert spirituel / Et à [?] de M.rs Les Amateurs. / OEUVRE IX / Gravées par Melle Ollivier / …/ A PARIS / Chez Mr Le Duc…’

This print is for the most part reasonably accurate although there are the usual instances of careless engraving particularly in regard to consistent marking and placement of dynamics and articulations.

Saint-Georges, Joseph Bologne de (1745-1799)

Symphony in G major, Op. 11 No. 1 (AE615) 
Edited by Allan Badley
Score (Hardcopy): $49.00/ (PDF): US$36.75
ISBN: 978-988-8708-44-4 (print) / 978-988-8708-45-1 (digital) 
ISMN: 979-0-805700-83-0

Saint-Georges only extant works in the genre are the two works published as Op.11 which are excellent examples of the cosmopolitan French symphonic style.

The first, in G major, has the effervescence of a Haydn symphony, and its unusual off-beat rhythmic patterns in the first movement’s opening subject create an interesting antiphonal effect between violin sections.

The second subject’s step-wise shape and lyricism is interrupted by octave leaps which serve to animate the music.

Michl, Joseph Willibald (1745-1816)

Michl, Joseph Willibald: Quartet in F major for Bassoon and Strings (Schwemmer B XIX: 3.1)(AE601) 
Edited by Kate Nelson
Score: US$34.00 / PDF: US$25.50
Parts: US$29.00 / PDF: US$21.75
ISBN: 978-988-8708-18-5 (print) / 978-988-8708-19-2 (digital)
ISMN: 979-0-805700-69-4

These works are the epitome of urbane sophistication; elegant in construction, mellifluous and with a clarity of texture that allows the bassoon to shine.

While he occasionally exploits the extreme upper and lower range of the instrument, Michl confines most of the bassoon writing to the tenor register where the instrument’s natural warmth and tone can be heard to advantage.
