No, that's not the title of a new Dr. Seuss Book! The Fux in question is Johann Joseph (1660-1741), the imperial composer for three Hapsburg emperor's and the pride of Austrain Baroque music. His works are represented by five incidental sacred concertos for voice, by three sonatas, and by the partita "Turcaria" which supposedly depicts the retreat of the Turks from the Siege of Vienna in 1683. Battle pieces were a popular staple of Baroque music, and Fux's is a typical showpiece for instruments and drums, though it sounds hardly more authentically Turkish than Turkey in the Straw. It was only after the Ottoman Empire began its long decline that Turkish 'flavors' became fashionable in European music and philosophy.

The Fox in question is the vocally gorgeous Monika Mauch, whose foxy wiles with Baroque ornamentation and rapid passages bring Fux out of his historic den, and whose voice is as silky suave as a fox's tail. I'm not alone in my appreciation of Mauch; she seems to appear on every CD I hear these days.

Ensemble Caprice is co-directed by two brilliant recorder players - Matthias Maute and Sophie Larivière - and the recorder is the most prominent treble instrument on all their recordings. For this performance, they are joined by two violins, cello, theorbo, harpsichord/organ, and Ziya Tabassian on percussion. The Turcaria is the only track involved percussion or Turkish exotica, however; the rest of the music is mainline Austro-Italian. Caprice is one of the few ensembles capable of making the recorder flutes, both the alto and the tenor, as satisfying and expressive as strings or cornetti.

This is an excellent review of Church music in the Imperial Vienna of Charles VI, mainly from Fux. In many aspects, this compilation is preferable to that from Lorenz Duftschmid on cpo (lux aeterna)
The Badia selection is also excellent.
