Chamber music of Joseph Mayseder (1789-1863)

JOSEPH MAYSEDER
Here's a name from the Classical/Romantic periods you may not know but should look into. it is highly satisfying music, original, melodic … the whole ball of wax. The latest volume in the Mayseder series on the Gramola label [99197] is the sixth in the series. They features mostly chamber music. The ones I have (with piano) include: Piano Trios Nos. 1 and 2; Violin Sonata #2 in e, Op 42. These are world premiere recordings. Artists include Raimund Lissy, violin, Maria Grün, and Srebra Gelleva, piano. The other volume of chamber music is Volume 1 [99103], and again, features all world premiere recordings. Born in Vienna, his background is most interesting. He knew many of the greatest composers/musicians during his lifetime, including Beethoven, Schubert, Hummel and a host of others. That whole period was simply so productive, we will probably never hear many compositions by those who were considered the most gifted outside of the ones we know so well. Highly recommended. •
