Format: Audio CD
Don't we all, these days... at least in the form of an iPod? Poor Augustus the Strong and his son Friedrich Augustus II, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, had to transport their whole orchestra, the largest in Europe north of Italy, to his hunting lodge at Moritzburg, for lack of a decent stereo system. But then, they also took their 'virtuosi' with them on imperial 'business trips' to France, Italy, and Austria. Think of the hassles, with all those instrument cases passing through 'security'!

That orchestra in Dresden was so remarkable that it spawned a whole genre of "concerti for Many Instruments" and the favor of its attention so coveted that composers of fame - Vivaldi, Telemann, Albinoni, even Bach - wrote uncommissioned music for it. The members of the orchestra already included some of the best composers of the era: the flautist Quantz, the lutenist Weiss, the violinist Pisandel, the bassist Zelenka, to name a few. The lucky Kapellmeister during the orchestra's Augustan Age was Johann David Heinichen (1683-1729).

If Heinichen's concerti sound at times like Vivaldi and at times like Telemann, it shouldn't be so surprising. The Italian influence that dominated the Hapsburg Court in Vienna certainly extended as far north as Dresden, especially after the Saxon rulers converted to Catholicism in order to 'accept' the royal throne of Poland. The horse trail over the Brenner Pass, from Venice to Vienna to Dresden, was the musical superhighway of Europe from Di Lasso to Mozart and beyond. Heinichen and Telemann were certainly aware of each other's works -- direct competitors, in fact. As you get acquainted with Heinichen, you'll find that he had his own individual flourishes and whimsies. These pieces are almost uniformly festive and ceremonious, robust and jolly.

This is one of my favorite recordings of Baroque orchestral music. Heinichen was fairly obscure until recently, but these concertos are real gems. It's too bad we don't have more of his music available.

Johann David Heinichen: Dresden Concertin is a 1993 Deutsche Grammophon GmbH recording under the direction of Reinhard Goebel who leads the Musica Antiqua Köln (on authentic instruments). Reinhard Goebel has written a very well-written essay entitled "Johann David Heinichen: Twelve Concerti Grossi". Being a huge fan of Baroque music I loved every single second. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.

Having heard this composer several times on radio, I tracked down this recording. It has the authentic sound of the Dresden court era and provides a good introduction to a composer who was popular in his time but is now in the second tier.
The works are light but not trivial, and some of the soloistic parts are well written and beautifully played.
This is a superb recording at a good price from a group who specialise in works and instrumentation of Heinichen's age.
As I said to my family as I put it on, 'Let's have a Heinichen...'

This cd seemed very good - but it isn't my particular cup of tea. But I haven't decided to sell it yet either. Four stars for now
