Torrent description

spooky's request on

David Petersen: quite an enigmatic composer, who was born around 1651 in Lübeck, and whose place and date of death are not known!

Assessment of those "Speelstukken" (= "play pieces") in the booklet: "It is surprising, from our contemporary standpoint, that a merchant defined as a dilettante and amateur, should have been capable of writing and performing a work of this level (although naturally that description of the composer referred to his not being obliged to live off his music, rather than to the quality of his music). Skillfully composed and technically demanding, it is on a par with the works of the great "professionals" of the time - Biber, Westhoff and Walther. It even shares with Walther a certain ambiguous brilliance (perhaps because Walther, though not an amateur, was indeed self-taught): amid standard passages there are moments which pose the vexatious questions: is this a copyist's error, a fault in the composition, or a stroke of genius?

Naturally, solely on the grounds of according him the benefit of the doubt (and us our irredeemable thirsting for astonishment), we have opted, whenever the principle is remotely applicable, to refrain from any correcting, or might we say standardization, of the text, presuming Peterson to have been inventive rather than defective."
