WEISS, Silvius Leopold, 1686-1750

Lautenmusik aus Schloß Rohrau. Werke von Silvius Leopold Weiss und anderen. Zwei Manuskripte für Barocklaute aus der Graf Harrach’schen Familiensammlung. Als Faksimile herausgegeben und kommentiert von Michael Freimuth, Frank Legl und Markus Lutz.
Frankfurt, 2010. Oblong, 4º, xlviii, 268 pp. The world-famous art collection of the Harrach family is preserved in their castle at Rohrau near Vienna. In 2004 the curator of the collection, count Arco-Zinneberg, came across 7 manuscripts (2 of them lute tablatures) preserved together with the art collection. Christoph Angerer and Michael Freimuth were called to evaluate the mss and soon realized the value of the find, particularly of the lute tablatures. The first volume mostly contains works by Sylvius Leopold Weiss, among them 11 suites of several movements that have been previously unknown, 1 complete lute duet in 4 movements, and the suite in A that has so far survived as solo music, but here it is in the form of a trio for violin, lute and bass. The title of the second volume, "Lautenmusik von unbekannten Componisten" (lute music by unknown composers) was obviously caused by the scribe’s ignorance of the music, since already as many as 4 suites could be ascribed to Weiss by concordances. Other suites in the collection are composed in a style that is quite similar to Weiss’ style as well. Quite unexpectedly, the volume also contains 4 pieces for lute in renaissance tuning, notated in Italian tablature. The present volumes, comprising 200 pages, bridge a gap in the group of sources of lute music by Weiss, complementing other Weiss manuscripts in London and Dresden, as they mainly contain pieces of his early creative period. The 2 manuscripts in Rohrau contain a total number of 167 movements for the lute, organized in 26 suite-like sequences. Without doubt, these volumes are of the highest significance both for active lute players and for scholars. $230 (more info... ) [item no.9171]

The Balcarres Lute Book. Edited by Matthew Spring.
Glasgow, 2010. 25.4 x 35.6 cm, 2 vols, 412 pp. Copied out in Scotland at the close of the 17th c., the Balcarres Lute Book is the largest and most important post-1640 British source of lute music. It contains 252 compositions arranged for the eleven-course instrument, among them settings of native Scots airs and of English popular tunes, and French baroque lute music by mid- and later 17th-c. masters. Possibly compiled by or for Margaret Campbell, fourth wife of Colin Lindsay, third Earl of Balcarres, the manuscript has remained in the Lindsay family, being owned currently by Lord Balniel, son and heir to the present Earl of Crawford and Balcarres, who has deposited it in the National Library of Scotland. It is here published for the first time in a pair of volumes comprising a black-and-white facsimile and a transcription, along with an extended introduction, notes on related musical sources, and an informative critical commentary on each individual piece.

[Harrach Ms.] Lautenmusik aus Schloß Rohrau. Werke von Silvius Leopold Weiss und anderen. Zwei Manuskripte für Barocklaute aus der Graf Harrach’schen Familiensammlung. Als Faksimile herausgegeben und kommentiert von Michael Freimuth, Frank Legl und Markus Lutz.
Frankfurt, 2010. Oblong, 4º, xlviii, 268 pp. The world-famous art collection of the Harrach family is preserved in their castle at Rohrau near Vienna. In 2004 the curator of the collection, count Arco-Zinneberg, came across 7 manuscripts (2 of them lute tablatures) preserved together with the art collection. Christoph Angerer and Michael Freimuth were called to evaluate the mss and soon realized the value of the find, particularly of the lute tablatures. The first volume mostly contains works by Sylvius Leopold Weiss, among them 11 suites of several movements that have been previously unknown, 1 complete lute duet in 4 movements, and the suite in A that has so far survived as solo music, but here it is in the form of a trio for violin, lute and bass. The title of the second volume, "Lautenmusik von unbekannten Componisten" (lute music by unknown composers) was obviously caused by the scribe’s ignorance of the music, since already as many as 4 suites could be ascribed to Weiss by concordances. Other suites in the collection are composed in a style that is quite similar to Weiss’ style as well. Quite unexpectedly, the volume also contains 4 pieces for lute in renaissance tuning, notated in Italian tablature. The present volumes, comprising 200 pages, bridge a gap in the group of sources of lute music by Weiss, complementing other Weiss manuscripts in London and Dresden, as they mainly contain pieces of his early creative period. The 2 manuscripts in Rohrau contain a total number of 167 movements for the lute, organized in 26 suite-like sequences. Without doubt, these volumes are of the highest significance both for active lute players and for scholars. $230 (more info... ) [item no.9171]


The Kalivoda Manuscript (c. 1715 – 1723). D-Fschneider Ms 33. Music for Baroque Lute and Mandora from Prague. Edited by Matthias O. Schneider [with contributions by Miloslav Študent, Mathias Rösel, Joachim Lüdtke, & Markus Lutz].

Full-color facsimile in the original size of Ms 33 from the private library of Matthias Schneider (Frankfurt/Main) with introductory texts and a critical commentary in Ger/Eng. Ms 33, a holograph manuscript by the lutenist Georg Adalbert Kalivoda, was probably written in Prague. It contains 35 pieces for 11-course lute (partly in Partie) and a suite in three movements for 6-course mandora. Much of the early history of this lute book remains unknown. In the 20th c. it passed through the hands of collectors and researchers among them Alfred Cortot, Robert Spencer and probably Paul Nettl, who also owned at least two other lute manuscripts, which are both in American libraries today.
