- BR POP10
このPopulistaシリーズカタログ10~12までの3種はどれも素晴らしい内容！！ミニマル・ミュージックの一つの指針になったというイタリアのバロック音楽の作曲家/ヴァイオリニストであるジュゼッペ・タルティーニの楽曲を、Karolina OssowskaとMikołaj Paloszがチェロとヴァイオリンで再検証した作品。現行の電子ドローンには無い、極めて崇高且つ人間的な響きが美し過ぎる大推薦作。
Apart from being a prolific Italian composer, Giuseppe Tartini was also a violin teacher and a theorist. Out of close analysis of intonation, he became interested in a long known phenomena of mysterious third tones which sometimes appear when only two sounds are articulated. He called them "il terzo suono" and was the first one to develop a written down theory of what we now know as combination tones. In his 'Trattato di musica secondo la vera scienza dell'armonia' published in 1754 he laid out a mathematical proof of third tone's pitch as either sum or difference of the other two articulated pitches. The idea behind the performance of Karolina Ossowska (violin), Mikołaj Pałosz (cello) and Ralf Meinz (recording) was to search for the combination tones in Tartini's own music. In order to make it audible, we decided to follow the path of a never-mention-his-name-because-you-will-be-in-debts composer, also interested in combination tones, who famously stretched durations of each note in a serial music piece which resulted in one of the milestones of minimal music.
