Composer: Domenico Rainer
Artists: Lex Eisenhardt (baroque guitar)

Of Domenico Rainer hardly anything is known beyond his name, which appears many times within a voluminous manuscript, held at the library of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. The manuscript contains guitar music, notated in tablature, from the 17th and 18th centuries. To judge from the style of the fugues and dances left to us – probably a mere fraction of his total output – Rainer worked at the turn of the 18th century.

The dances are mostly grouped in pairs – of allemandes followed by courantes, sarabandes and gigues. The allemandes are particularly impressive, often majestic and serious in mood, while the complementary dances are lighter in character. The title and authorship of several other works here is not easy to establish from the poor condition of the manuscript, but Lex Eisenhardt has assigned them to Rainer after close study of the source.

Rainer seems to have taken inspiration in several cases from the work of Arcangelo Corelli: the gigues in particular demonstrate a distinctly ‘violinistic’ approach, with abundant broken-chord figuration, and a contemporary sense of tonality and chord hierarchy. Rainer adapted Corelli’s language for the guitar with considerable imagination and ingenuity.

Recently retired as a long-standing professor at the conservatoire in Amsterdam, Lex Eisenhardt has studied, taught and performed at the forefront of the historically informed performance tradition on plucked instruments for more than 40 years, and this recording is deeply informed by his experience. In 2015 his widely acclaimed monograph on the baroque guitar was published by the University of Rochester Press, Italian Guitar Music of the Seventeenth Century. This is his debut album for Brilliant Classics.
