ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shapeshifter k581

The term shapeshifter is familiar to us from science fiction and refers to a being
capable of changing its appearance while retaining its identity. We encounter
this phenomenon in music too. All down the centuries popular pieces have
been copied again and again by other artists, arranged for larger and smaller
ensembles, been broken into fragments, and have gone on to live other lives.

Nowadays we talk about covers. Our musical heritage comprises thousands of
such historical covers of famous musical pieces. Many of these are splendid music,
gems that do show up on the sensors of our contemporary outlook, which
tends to regard non-original work as inferior. Even so originality is a quality
that only since the Romantic period has been held in high regard and viewed
as a touchstone of artistic quality. Prior to that people took a different view.
It is worth noting that modern philosophers have also asked what originality
effectively entails.

Terra Nova Collectief Antwerpen wants to draw the music lover’s attention
to these forgotten arrangements, by putting the original work together
with the historical arrangement in a single concert programme. This gives you
the chance not only to discover something new but also to experience a famous
masterpiece from an unfamiliar perspective.

The arrangement for clarinet and piano La Grande Sonate pour le piano-forte avec
accompagé d’un (sic) Clarinette ou Violon obligé was published under this somewhat
defective title in Vienna by Artaria in 1809. The name of the arranger is unknown
and it is unclear what the source for the transcription was. After some
years alternative arrangements became available for string quartet, flute quintet
with two violas and for piano duet.

The cover image is a detail from “Emmelie’s Dream” by the Antwerp artist,
Jef Diels. I have known Jef for over 30 years and I am extremely grateful to him
for painting this picture especially for this cd.

The bonus tracks on the cd are drawn from the audio tapes that we made for
the broadcaster Cultuur7.
