About

Pavel Josef Vejvanovsky was born in Moravia circa 1633 or 1639. Little is known of his musical education except that he studied in Opava at the Jesuit College (also attended by Heinrich Biber and others). He spent most of his life working as trumpeter and Kapellmeister for the Bishop Princes of Olmutz (resident in Kromeriz). Vejvanovsky was a colleague of Biber when the latter was himself briefly in the employ of Bishop Prince Karl Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn. The two remained in contact with each other throughout their lives and it is understood that they exchanged musical ideas and material with one another.

Much of the music presented here includes opulent writing for the trumpet. He wrote in a style similar to the Canzone da Sonar of the early Italians as well as mixing styles of the Viennese, Germans and French.

“The string parts are just as demanding, and there are baroque contrasts, weird juxtapositions and mordant harmonic inflexions aplenty. As the booklet says, ‘imaginative, rich, ornate, full and airy’ - and played with real panache. This is a real find: do try it.” - Gramophone, February 1998
