Vivaldi, Concertos for Oboe (2019)

Vivaldi

Joris Van den Hauwe

Patrick Peire

‘These girls are educated at the expense of the state to distinguish themselves in music. They sing like angels and play violin, flute, harpsichord, organ, oboe, cello and bas- soon; in short, no instrument can deter them, however big it may be.’ That is what French humanist and historian Charles de Brosses wrote in1739 about the girls who received their schooling in the Venetian orphanages which he visited. In one of these institutions, the Ospedale della Pieta?, Antonio Vivaldi worked as ‘maestro di violino’ and ‘maestro di concerti’ from 1703 to 1709, 1711 to 1717, 1723 to 1729 and 1735 to 1740. One of his tasks was ‘to provide concertos for our girls and compositions for all types of instrument’. This is partly why Vivaldi composed over fifty works for oboe, the earliest dating from 1706. Several excellent oboists, including Ignazio Rion, Onofrio Penati and also Ignazio Siber, were employed by the orphanage as music teachers, their talent must have stimulated Vivaldi to compose high quality music for the instrument.

Joris Van den Hauwe

Known for his musicality, his impeccable technique and his distinctive tone and phrasing, Joris Van den Hauwe has become one of the most important ambassadors of the Flemish oboe school. While a student at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, he won first prizes for oboe, chamber music, harmony and counterpoint. He was further awarded a higher diploma in oboe, granted with the highest distinction, while under the tutelage of Paul Dombrecht. In 1983 he was invited to play in the European Union Youth Orchestra, conducted by Claudio Abbado. That was the beginning of a long line of international solo performances. In 2005, Joris van den Hauwe was appointed solo oboist in the Flemish Radio Orchestra, which was later renamed the Brussels Philharmonic.
