This record transports us to Vienna during its political, economic and cultural heuday in the 17th century, when it was the residence of the Holy Roman Emperor and at the zenith of its colourful history. Each of the four composers who contribute to this record played an important part in the musical life of the Court, either by virtue of  their position as Imperial Kapellmeister or because as masters of their craft they were naturally of interest to the Court authorities.
GEORG MUFFAT: SONATA No 1 in D FOR STRING ORCHESTRA. Muffat's relations with the Court were due to his dedicating his "Apparatus musico-organisticus" to the Emperor LEopold I. His principal achievement was familiarising the German-speaking world with French music in general and with Lully in particular. A feature of this Sonata from the "Armonico tributo" is the interplay of French and Italian idioms, which gives it almost symphonic stature.
GEORG CHRISTOPH WAGENSEIL: TRIOSONATA IN F FOR 2 VIOLINS, CELLO AND CEMBALO. Wagenseil was Court Composer during the reign of Karl VI and one of the more important precursors of Haydn aand Mozart. This Triosonata in F shows all the outward signs of an early pre.classical symphony: the first and last movements, Allegro, are both in sonata form, and between them are a slow movement and a lively Minuet.
JOHANN JOSEF FUX: SINFONIA IN F FR FLUTE, OBOE, CELLO AND CEMBALO. Fux, beyond doubt the greatest master of Austrian baroque, was Kapellmeister at the Court of Jesef I, tho whom he dedicated the great work "Concentus musico-instrumentalis" from which this Sonata is taken. Strictly speaking it is a Trio Sonata in two parts: the first part consists of an introductory adagio, an Andante in the minor, and an Allegro: the second part is programmatic, with a particularly interesting second movement, an "Aria" in which an Italian melody is given to the flute while the oboe supplies a counterpoint in French rhythm.
JOHANN JAKOB FROBERGER: SUITE IN A MINOR No. XXIX FOR CEMBALO. Froberger was organist at the Vienna Court but spent much of his time studying with Frescobaldi in Italy. He can claim to be the inventor of the Suite for Cembalo, a genre in which he influenced even J. S. Bach and Händel. This Suite in A minor is a fine example of his peculiar blend of contrapuntal ingenuity and sonorous chording, the latter adapted from the lute.
