This work was probably first printed in , only some months before the Partite di Liuto Solo, Opera Seconda, that are easier to play and, for the most part, have shorter mouvements. The six sonatas have three mouvements each and always begin with a slow Largo. The music is mostly typically galant with short, but nevertheless beautiful, melodical phrases. Some of the mouvements have fugal elements, especially in Sonata IV, and are reminiscent of the late baroque.
Adam Falckenhagen is one of the last major lutenists; his style combines musical elements of the Hochbarock high baroque with elements of the galant style Empfindsamkeit. Many of his works for baroque lute, either solo or with an ensemble, in various instrumentations, have been printed. Others can be found in miscellaneous manuscripts. In Knauthain, he probably learned the lute together with Johann Christian Weiyrauch, who also seems to have intabulated, for baroque lute, some of Bach's works.
Later, both of them studied law in Leipzig. Falckenhagen stayed 4 years in Weimar from , before he went to Bayreuth.
There he found his life-time position as lutenist and clerk for Friederike Sophie Wilhelmine, Markgravine of Bayreuth-Brandenburg, who also played the lute masterfully.
Fascinated by the music of Silvius Leopold Weiss, Markus Lutz learnt to play the baroque lute on himself. Especially he is interested in the lute music of the 18th century, by Austrian and German composers as Lauffensteiner, Weichenberger, Weiss, Falckenhagen etc.
Since he got involved in the research on Silvius Leopold Weiss and is responsible for the homepage on Silvius Leopold Weiss. Together with Peter Steur he established a catalogue of all baroque lute manuscripts. For the German Lute Society Deutsche Lautengesellschaft he was involved in the publication of several facsimile editions of baroque lute manuscripts Rostock Lute Book mus.
Some of his research has been published by the German and the American Lute Society. Markus Lutz lives in Bad Buchau and works as evangelical pastor. Since he also plays the Rennaissance lute. As a musician and lutenist, Richard Civiol has chosen as his life's work the study of the lute and theorbp. These instruments have basically disappeared from our contemporary orchestras while growing in visibility in smaller ensembles and solo performances thanks in part to his efforts.
He participates with the same enthusiasm and expertise in the renaissance and baroque repertory of all the different instruments of the lute family as well as the practice of basso continuo. Civiol is a member of the ensemble "Les Musiciens des Mademoiselle de Guise" directed by Laurence Pottier, and they have performed both in France and abroad.
They have also done several CDs together. Civiol is a member of the music ensemble "L'Oiseliere", and has collaborated with other ensembles, orchestras or chorales including"La Fabrique a Theatre", the chamber choir "Les Temperaments", and has worked with Jean-Francois Fremont, Didier Bouture, Christophe Sam and Romain Champion. Finally, Civiol is engaged in a large project of copying and restoring music for the lute, theorbo and vihuela.
The main features are:. We are aware, of course, that it is impossible to reconstruct the one and only urtext. Often, several manuscript sources exist for the same piece, and there is little reliable guidance for determining which version best represents the composer's intentions.
Although we cannot entirely dissipate historical uncertainty, we can compare texts and correct obvious errors, which sometimes occur even in autograph manuscripts. Sources have been meticulously examined - note by note, mark by mark.
When facing ambiguity inherent to the sources, wise editorial judgment must take the place of textual certainty. The most important observations and editorial decisions are elucidated in the prefaces, in the critical commentary, in footnotes, or marked as such in the musical text. Each verified musical text preserves the original fingerings and notation of ornamentation and, in the absence of original manuscript notations, also sets forth helpful suggestions by modern masters regarding useful fingerings and ornaments faithful to historical style, as a stimulus to further thought and a starting point for the student's approach to performance.
