New Letters to Esterhazy - Sonata 2

by Rupert Guenther

These classical sonatas for the solo violin articulate spiritual-human ideals, the movement of universal life energy in sounds and proportions, translated through the human soul into music. They are intuitive expressions of all that is unique in life.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The New Letters To Esterhazy sonatas are a testament to Joseph Haydn, and the wave of sounds and feelings he articulated and spawned into the world's consciousness, and which was furthered through the work of his students Mozart and Beethoven. These new classical works are the breaking of that same wave of freedom of the human spirit on Australian shores some 200 years later, a spontaneous expression of gratitude, celebrating and acknowledging its origins in the 18th century courts of Vienna and Esterhazy.

Each movement of the sonatas has its own contemporary path in which it articulates its spiritual-human ideals, the movement of universal life energy in sounds and proportions translated through the human soul into music. It attempts to pay homage to the greatness of its origins, yet without getting trapped in the old forms from which our human condition has freed itself from in the intervening centuries since.

Being free improvisations, the sonatas were all recorded in one take, and are an intuitive art, trustingly reaching into
the unknown void of creative source as the microphone was switched onto “live”. They were shaped in that moment by
the ideals, discipline and temperament of the artist, and stand exactly as they unfolded, moment by moment, and
were recorded into permanence on studio tape.

Commissioned and recorded by the ABC at Iwaki Auditorium Melbourne in August 2007.
