Tietz - Instrumental Music (2004)

Tietz

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

Anton Ferdinand Tietz (1742–1810), a German violinist and composer, is an enigmatic figure. An outstanding musician, who had spent half of his life in Nuremberg and Vienna, the major centres of musical life in Europe, he came to St Petersburg hoping to make a distinguished career there. And he succeded. In the “Northern capital” Tietz got a prestigious posi- tion of a chamber musician at the court of Catherine the Great as well as the right to give violin lessons to Great Prince Alexander Pavlovich. Tietz gained a reputation of the perfect ensemble player, and his magnificent compositions soon became popular. There was a romantic halo of an unsurpassed virtuoso around him and the vague circumstances of his private life added to the mystique.

Anton Tietz spent his childhood and youth in Nuremberg. He was brought up in the family of his uncle, an artist, with whose help the boy acquired drawing skills while also taking violin les- sons. In 1759 he joined the chapel of St. Sebald Church and soon was appointed first violinist. In 1762 Tietz, allegedly at the recommendation of Christoph Willibald Gluck, was invited to play in the orchestra at the Vienna Opera. Nobody knows how he managed to attract the attention of the celebrated composer and Kapellmeister at the court opera. But his getting the posi- tion at such a prestigious theatre clearly testifies to his talent as a performer.

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

The Pratum Integrum orchestra performs with authentic instruments. The Latin name translates as ‘unmown meadow’ and refers to their broad-ranging repertoire from the Baroque and Classical periods, about which little is known to this day. This is the only orchestra in Russia in which all the groups of historic instruments are represented: strings, wind and percussion, and moreover all the instruments were made in the 18th to 19th centuries or copied from period examples. Pratum Integrum’s performances are a careful recreation using original treatises, primary sources and eye-witness accounts by contemporaries. 
The orchestra was established in Moscow in 2003 with sponsorship from the company Essential Music, immediately gaining a reputation as an extraordinary, outstanding and highly professional group of musicians with a predilection for fast tempos and vivid, fresh interpretations.
