Esterházy Trio

Andreas Lidl was one of the greatest virtuosos on his instrument the Baryton, a string instrument no longer in use, resembling a crossing between a cello and a viola d’amore.

Lidl played in the court orchestra of Count Esterhazy (the patron of Joseph Haydn) and composed many works for the Baryton.

A collection of his trios is heard on this disc. Michael Brüssing, a modern Baryton virtuoso, draws lovely sounds from his instrument. He and his trio won great critical acclaim with their recording of Haydn’s

complete Baryton Trios (Brilliant Classics 93907) World premieres.

Andreas Lidl, or Lidel as it is sometimes written, was a member of the court orchestra at Eszterháza, where Joseph Haydn was later to become Kapellmeister. A virtuoso player of the baryton, an instrument of the viola da gamba family, he did much to develop this unusual instrument, such as increasing the strings below the bridge to 27 to allow full chromatic accompaniment.

The baryton was particularly popular in Germany and Austria. Haydn composed over 200 works for it, largely as a result of his employer Prince Nikolaus Eszterhaza, who was a great enthusiast. Lidl’s virtuosity was frequently discussed by musical commentators of his era. Charles Burney mentioned the composer, in his General History of Music, as being an astonishing performer, playing with taste and refinement Lidl was a member of the Eszterháza orchestra from 1769 until 1774, and also worked in London for many years, where he eventually died. The music on this CD is typical of the light music composed for wealthy amateurs to play – skilfully written, and not without challenges for performers.
