Kamermuziek op historische instrumenten.

An unusual perspective inspires this concert program: the publisher’s choice. The main protagonist of “Galant Nederland” is indeed Johann Julius Hummel (1728-1799): of German origin, he moved to Den Haag with his brother Burchard during the 1740s and eventually became Amsterdam’s citizen. In Amsterdam, he transformed his activity into one of the leading music publishing firms in Europe.

This program, that will be performed on period instruments, presents a small selection of the chamber music repertoire circulating in the Netherlands thanks to Hummel’s editions, representing three of the most typical and intimate ensemble settings: the violin and harpsichord duo, the string duo (violin and cello) and the trio with the harpsichord.The galant style which dominates this production – addressed to professionals and sophisticated amateurs – is often characterized by the careful use of catchy, ornamented melodies, supported by a light accompaniment. ‘Being galant, in general’, wrote the French philosopher Voltaire, ‘means seeking to please’, and this is undoubtedly the trademark of most of the music published by Hummel, even though the creativity and the true inspiration of the great composers are recognizable by the audiences of every time.
