Concerti – Prinz Johann Ernst von Sachsen-Weimar
In 1718, in fact exactly 300 years ago, Georg Philipp Telemann published the six violin concertos Op. 1 by Prince Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar. The original score was kept in the Anna-Amalia library in Weimar but was unfortunately destroyed in a big fire in 2004.
In addition to the six concertos from the opus edited by Telemann, the CD also contains two concertos in G major. Written during Johann Ernst’s lifetime in Weimar, the parts were donated to the Württemberg-Stuttgart royal court and are now kept in the Rostock University Library. For a long time, one of these concertos was regarded as a work by Vivaldi – further indirect proof of Johann Ernst’s remarkable skill in the Vivaldi style.
