18th Century Chamber Music by Danzi

Karlsruhe Palace, Employer of Composer Franz Danzi

Franz Ignaz Danzi (1763 – 1826) was a cellist, composer, and conductor in the royal courts of Mannheim, Munich, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe. His greatest contribution to music was establishing the quintet for bassoon, clarinet, flute, horn and oboe as a significant chamber music form.

Danzi lived during an important time in the history of European classical music. His career spanned the transition from the late Classical to the early Romantic periods. As a young man he knew Mozart. He was a contemporary of Beethoven and a mentor to young Carl Maria von Weber.

Soni Ventorum Wind Quintet performed the Wind Quintet Opus 67, Nos. 2-3 of Franz Danzi made available by Pandora Records and now appearing on the Free Music Archive. Soni Ventorum was officially founded in 1962 when Pablo Casals asked them to become the woodwind faculty of his newly founded Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico. Members of the ensemble were on faculty at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico and members of the Puerto Rico Symphony. After leaving Puerto Rico, the members were reunited as faculty of and as the resident wind quintet of the University of Washington the next 30 years. Through their concerts, tours, and recordings, the Soni Ventorum Wind Quintet established an international reputation. See the group's official website for more of the history of this highly regarded quintet.

A Wild, Romantic Experiment in Ambient Electronica and Post-Classical Forms

This week sees the release of The Pomegranate Cycle by Textile Audio on Wood & Wire. Woven from song, sound textures and fragmented orchestration, The Pomegranate Cycle is the creation of composer, mezzo soprano and sound engineer Eve Klein.

Since 2002, Eve has been working as a professional operatic mezzo soprano, electronic musician and academic. The Textile Audio project finds her working with scores, field recordings, and operatic-pop composite vocals to weave rich melodic soundscapes and textures that she describes as "unashamedly romantic". With a PhD in Music and Sound from Queensland University of Technology, and over 300 shows for Opera Australia under her belt, The Pomegranate Cycle marks the culmination of many years of explorations into the marriage of opera and classical forms with contemporary audio production.

An early work, Some Kind Of Mininova opened New Weird Australia's free compilation, Volume Four, and introduced Textile Audio to an audience who were among the first to experience Eve's unique contemporary Australian experimental opera. This was shortly followed by The Pomegranate EP on Feral Media, which featured early versions of tracks from The Pomegranate Cycle as well as a wonderfully sensitive rework of The Pomegranate Cycle's Demeter's Lament by electronic producer, Gentleforce.

In an interview with Eve in Cyclic Defrost, Melonie Bayl-Smith commented on the (then) work-in-progress Pomegranate Cycle:

"In a way, whilst there is a provocative electronic subversion inherent in the disruptive industrial clicks, blips and tears that punctuate the work, it is the sheer beauty of Klein's voice, heard against itself, against the samples and lines, against the disembodied choruses, that is the glue by which The Pomegranate Cycle is most potently held together. Here, at the point of Klein's voice and its placement in the structure of the music, are operatic traditions celebrated, challenged and reframed. This is contemporary music at its most relevant - it is simultaneously inward and outward focused in addressing the challenge of its existence and its capacity to produce something great."

The Pomegranate Cycle is now available as a Free Download on FMA
