Description

Court of Bayreuth: Lute Music on CD

Frederick the Great's court in Potsdam was a recreation in Germany of Versailles - Frederick loved all things French. He also imported the baroque lute, an instrument that had been created in France. Frederick was a gifted flautist, and employed Johann Joseph Quantz as his court composer and teacher. Meanwhile, Princess Wilhemine, Frederick's sister, was a gifted lutenist and pupil of the great Silvius Weiss. She and she and her husband the Margrave of Bayreuth, established a small scale Versaille of their own in the small north Baverian town. They built a delightful opera house in the town that still exists. Wilhelmina employed both Adam Falckhagen (1697-1754) and Joachim Bernhard Hagen (1720-87), the latter being the pupil of the former.
