Adam Falckenhagen - Minuet - origin?

Post by Weed » Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:26 am

perhaps the commonest Falckenhagen piece arranged for guitar to be found on YouTube is a simple Minuet, usually in E major, but sometimes in D major -- does anyone know which set of pieces it comes from? -- Wikipedia lists his works as 6 Sonatas, 6 Partitas and a Prelude but gives no details -- looking through the track listings on Amazon hasn't helped either

It appears as a duet arrangement in Frederick Noad's Baroque Guitar. He says:
This minuet is taken from a manuscript lute book (Bayerische Stadtsbibliotek. Mus. MS. 5362.), where it appears as Minuet and Variation. However it is hard to believe that the variation is other than a simple second part, and I have accordingly printed it below the minuet as an optional accompaniment.
Jean-Daniel Forget's site has the sonatas and partitas - it doesn't seem to be among them.

Is this the Minuet to which you refer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQ7FLDWGQPI?

I happily listened to all of the minuets from Flackenhagen's Op. 4 "6 Concerti for flute, lute and cello" and I can say that none of the minuets cross referenced with the above link. However, Op. 4 is quite enjoyable and I would happily listen to all of the Op. 4 minuets again if helpful.

The D Major Concerto is the only one I've ever seen in print.

I also recommend Karl Kohaut & Bernhard Joachim Hagen if you enjoy late Baroque lute music.

many thanks for your suggestions -- i'll follow them up -- it took me years to appreciate lute, archlute, theorbo and baroque guitar, eventually getting hooked in via Weiss and de Visée, and a realisation of the importance of the performer's interpretation in bringing it to life, especially the scope for improvisation, flourishes and ornaments

Have a look here: http://jdf.luth.pagesperso-orange.fr. There's a lot of music in tablature and staff notation from well-known and less well-known baroque lutenists.
