Composer: Johann Sigismund Weiss, Silvius Leopold Weiss
Artists: Duo Inventio, Stefano Sabene, Mario D’Agosto

Having only survived in the lute tablature known as the London manuscript, the four sonatas for transverse flute and lute assembled here – three by the German Baroque composer Silvius Leopold Weiss, and one, perhaps a little less sumptuous musically speaking, by his brother Sigismund – were reconstructed especially for this recording, with the two artists Sabene and D’Agosto drawing on an abundant source of contemporary 18th-century repertoire (in particular the works of the great flute virtuoso of the time, Johann Joachim Quantz) in their attempt to correctly evaluate the thematic material offered in the tablature and research the best possible response from the traversière. The choice of tessitura, the indication of ornamentation, and the nature and distribution of musical sections were all conceived taking into account the stylistic intent, with Sabene and D’Agosto seeking to highlight the range of textures and colours the traversière is capable of producing in relation to the specific characteristics of the lute.

Demonstrating a high artistic level and emulating the best German compositions of the period through their synthesis of the French and Italian styles, these sonatas’ solidity of form and delightful thematic invention place them firmly on a par with the arrangements for traversière and basso continuo or harpsichord written by the major composers of that era such as Bach and Handel. Sabene (also a prolific conductor of early music ensembles) and D’Agosto, both of whom enjoy international careers and makes regular recordings for CD, television and radio, form an engaging partnership, traversing with flair and ease this tiny area of the Baroque period’s rich and varied instrumental tapestry.
