With this recording la festa musicale follows up on the outstanding success of its first release with works by Venturini and once again dedicates itself to high-quality but unknown repertoire: Gregor Joseph Werner (1693-1766), a titan on the threshold of Viennese Classicism, was Kapellmeister and immediate predecessor of Joseph Haydn at the Esterházy court. He was above all a supreme master of Latin musica sacra, though most of his instrumental music has been lost.

Werner’s compositions, including his Salve Reginas and Pastorellas presented here, display beguiling melodic invention and bold harmonic expressivity combined with enormous contrapuntal skill. Haydn profited considerably from his predecessor and actual teacher; the gallant, erudite synthesis of the late Mozart is already largely preformed in Werner. Werner’s œuvre, which is difficult to access and has survived almost exclusively in individual parts, has been researched by Lajos Rovatkay – also the conductor of this recording – in decades of work. Together with the top-ranking ensemble of soloists and la festa musicale, impressive interpretations of the works of this unjustly neglected master have emerged.
