Fasch's Oboe - Music At The Zerbst Court
Label: Pan classics
Format: COMPACT DISC
Vertommen, Nele; Musica Gloria
The composer Johann Friedrich Fasch maintained a particularly close relationship with the court of Anhalt-Zerbst, where he served as Kapellmeister from 1722 until his death in 1758. The present program focuses on the oboe: these are compositions by Fasch himself, such as an oboe concerto, a concerto for 2 oboes and smaller works for oboe, as well as works with oboe by Telemann and Bach, which are connected with the Zerbst court music inventory, Fasch's "Concert-Stube" (1743), and Fasch's tenure in Zerbst. Soloist of the recording is the young oboist Nele Vertommen (b. 1999), a student of Marcel Ponseele and winner of the 1st prize at the International Telemann Competition in Magdeburg in 2021, accompanied by the rising ensemble Musica Gloria.
