Fischer

Olga Martynova

He was considered to be one of the best harpsichordists of his time and he was famous for making well known and spread- ing the art of ornamentation in Germany as well as a perfect per- forming style on this instrument.
That is the estimation Ernst Ludwig Gerber gave in his Historisch-biographisches Lexicon der Tonkünstler to Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer (1656–1746), a composer and Kapellmeister to the Baden court.
His talent was rated extraordinarily high by his contempo- raries; Mauritius Vogt in the Conclave thesauri magnae artis musicae (published in Prague, 1719) called him ‘the most per- fect composer of our era’ (‘nostri aevi componista absolutis- simus’). It is known that J. S. Bach kept copies of Fischer’s com- positions and that this music was a source of inspiration for him. Modern research regards Fischer as a great composer of key- board music, on a par with Froberger and Bach. Furthermore, he is written about as a musician who in German speaking countries was able to elucidate the peculiarities of the French style.

Olga Martynova

Olga Martynova is one of the premier harpsichordists in Russia today. An honours graduate in piano and harpsichord from the Moscow Conservatoire, she decided to devote herself to early music after hearing a recital in France by Hopkinson Smith, the distinguished performer of early plucked instruments. His master classes made a profound impression on her and deeply influenced her understanding of music. Martynova continued her studies in France, graduating from the Ecole Nationale de Musique de Bobigny with a gold medal. She went on to win the Van Wassenaer competition in the Netherlands and the Premio Bonporti in Italy, and has given harpsichord and piano recitals all over Europe. Since 2003 Olga Martynova has performed on historical instruments and toured with the Moscow orchestra Pratum Integrum. Like Pratum Integrum she records exclusively for the Caro Mitis label. Her previous recordings feature selected keyboard sonatas by Johann Christian Bach (CM 0052004), transcriptions of Baroque music for harpsichord (CM 0072004), Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer’s Musicalisches Blumen- Bu?schlein (CM 0012006) and piano pieces of the 19th and 20th centuries arranged for harpsichord (CM 0102006). These recordings have been widely praised (the German magazine Toccata- Alte Musik aktuell voted the album of J.C. Bach sonatas ‘CD of the month’). Olga Martynova also performs with the Moscow Baroque and A La Russe ensembles, and teaches at the Moscow Conservatoire and Gnesin School of Music.

Olga Martynova

    SA-CD.net -

"Even today, we know little about the life and work of composer Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer. Admired by Johann Sébastien Bach, Fischer is the author of works for harpsichord recorded here named "Musikalische Blumen-Büschlein" (Musical Flowers Bouquet) whose composition dates from 1698. It's eight suites sharing equally major and minor modes. The latest being a chaconne. Into an outlet of his sumptuous, delicate and inspired music the young harpsichordist Olga Martynova game shows us a composer at the time singing, voluble and meditative, knowing give feelings through its suites, just weight. And we then understand Bach, who confided to his son Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach that Fischer was one of his favourite composers. A remarkable recording and discovery."
