    Béla Bartók - Divertimento for String Orchestra


    - Composer: Béla Viktor János Bartók (25 March 1881 -- 26 September 1945)
    - Orchestra: RIAS Symphony Orchestra
    - Conductor: Ferenc Fricsay
    - Year of recording: 1956

    Divertimento for String Orchestra Sz.113, BB.118 is a three-movement work, scored for full orchestral strings, written in 1939.

    00:00 - I. Allegro non troppo
    08:50 - II. Molto Adagio
    17:44 - III. Allegro assai

    This work marks the end of Bartok's European career. It was composed on commission from Paul Sacher, the pioneering conductor who commissioned so much fine music for his string orchestra in Basle, Switzerland. Bartok was then already planning to move to the United States to escape both the gathering war clouds of Europe and the Nazi sympathizing regime of his native Hungary. He had already sent his manuscripts and papers to London, but remained at home because of the terminal illness of his mother. While taking a break from all this he visited Sacher in Switzerland and while there composed this substantial (nearly 25 minute) work in 15 days. His mother died in December; Bartok finished up his personal affairs in Europe, giving his farewell Budapest appearance in October 1940. Meanwhile, the Divertimento had been successfully premiered in June in Basel, Switzerland.

    Audiences were struck with a new clarity and classical approach in Bartok's music, as well as by his returning to a much clearer tonal feeling. This consolidated a trend which actually began a few years earlier. Longer, more attractive melodies (almost always in folk-character) reappear after a decade and a half in which Bartok's music was famous for its harsh sounds, uncompromisingly dissonant harmonies, and tight, motive-driven formal procedures. In this period it is easy to find (and hear) distinct tonality. The work's three movements, for instance, are in F Major, a modal scale based on D, and again in F. Bartok's use of solo strings against the large string group (particularly in the first movement) recalls the concerto grosso form.

    - The opening movement is a suave and gracefully dance-like Allegro non troppo, full of attractive melodies, but also making highly intellectual use of canons, inversions, and other such devices.
    - The Second movement is a remarkable example of Bartok's Night Music, including a frightening central section which seems to suggest some terror of the night.
    - The third movement is even more playful than the first, a bit earthier, and somewhat faster. It even spoofs Bartok's tendency to drop into canons and fugues: what appears to be a full-fledged fugato section dissolves soon after it starts, the music laughs at itself, and comes to a whirling conclusion.

    Mozart - Divertimento No. 2, K.131


    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

    Divertimento in D major K.131 (1772)

    I. (Allegro).
    II. Adagio.(5:09)
    III. Menuetto. - Trio I. - Trio II. - Trio III. - Coda. (11:50)
    IV. Allegretto.(17:27)
    V. Menuetto. - Trio I. - Trio II. - Coda. (20:39)
    VI. Adagio. - Allegro molto. - Allegro assai. (24:18)

    The Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields conducted by Neville Marriner

    As with many of Mozart’s first efforts in big public forms, we don’t know anything about the occasion for which he was writing. The pieces Mozart labeled divertimento, serenade, cassation, and notturno were all written to provide instant gratification, and as with so much of the music from this period, they were performed
    just once, at a public ceremony or high society event, and then forgotten. As a result, many have disappeared without a trace; we are probably lucky this early divertimento has survived at all. (In 1757, the year after Wolfgang was born, his composer father Leopold boasted that he had written more than thirty pieces of serenade music; just one, recently discovered at that, is known today.) It is all the more remarkable that this D major divertimento, which Mozart clearly didn’t expect to live beyond its “premiere,” was written with the finesse, invention, and stylishness he would regularly lavish on operas and big-scale works he hoped might have a life of their own.

    The divertimento K.313 is often said to be the earliest serenade-style work in which Mozart’s distinctive voice emerges. Maynard Solomon, our finest Mozart biographer today, suggests it may have been written to be played at a wedding, since the slow movement has the character of a serenader’s love song. The score holds no other clues about its origins or function; the word “divertimento” written on the autograph score is not even in Mozart’s own hand. It may have well been composed for an important public event, since the scoring calls for four horns, not standard serenade personnel, and Mozart’s writing for them is highly demanding. (Salzburg boasted a very fine horn player, Ignaz Leutgeb, for whom Mozart later wrote his well-known concertos; it is likely he played the first horn part in this work.) The score is a loose collection of six movements. Like many of Mozart’s earliest Salzburg
    entertainments, it doesn’t have the architectural unity of the later symphonies.

    Segovia Divertimento - Scott Tennant & Marcelo Kayath


    Guitars: 1969 Jose Ramirez ex Segovia (
    1966 David Rubio (
    Here’s a very rare treat – Scott Tennant and Marcelo Kayath playing ‘Divertimento’, the only guitar duo written by Andrés Segovia. The piece has not been widely performed, although the Abreu brothers recorded it in 1968 for their album “The Guitars of Sergio and Eduardo Abreu” from 1968.

    GSI recently provided Segovia’s 1969 Jose Ramirez guitar, which the maestro played from1969 until 1980, to Scott Tennant for his Guitar CoOp recording of Segovia’s compositions. Kayath is the founder of Guitar CoOp in addition to having been one of the great guitarists of his generation (along with Tennant et al). So it just made sense to have the two of them take advantage of the circumstances and record Segovia’s only guitar duet together. Tennant plays the 1969 Ramirez and Kayath plays a gorgeous 1966 David Rubio.

    Recorded at the Guitar Salon International showroom in Santa Monica, CA.

    Mito Chamber Orchestra , 2012 Mito Art Museum Concert Hall.

    The Mito Chamber Orchestra (MCO), ATM's exclusive in-house orchestra, was established in 1990 concurrently with the opening of the cultural complex at the behest of ATM's Chief Curator Hidekazu Yoshida. The group's musical adviser and occasional conductor is the renowned Seji Ozawa. The MCO has developed a depth of mutual understanding that creates a sound which combines the meticulousness of a chamber group with the sense of scale of a larger orchestra.

    Although the these works by Mozart are not really counted as symphonies per say, the three Divertimenti K. 136--138, in 3-movement Italian overture style, are sometimes referred to as Salzburg Symphonies too.

    Mozart / Divertimento in F major, K. 138


    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

    Divertimento in F major for string quartet, K. 138/125c (1772)

    00:00 - Allegro
    03:38 - Andante
    09:12 - Presto

    Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Ensemble (1984)

    Three early Mozart pieces, K. 136, 137 and 138, are labeled divertimentos on the manuscripts and are so listed in Grove. However, few Mozart scholars accept that tag as an accurate description of the works, and most doubt that the title came from Mozart. For one thing, a divertimento should have two minuets, and these three have none. At first glance they seem to be straightforward string quartets--yet many experts contend that they don't sound at all like string quartets.

    So what are they? Mozart scholar Alfred Einstein fancies them as small symphonies for strings, to which the composer was prepared to add extra parts for winds; they are sometimes known as the 'Salzburg symphonies.' Musicologist Hans Keller has given them the curious designation of 'orchestral quartets.' Others insist that they are indeed string quartets even if they lack the serious temper of that rarefied form. Yet (to complete the confusion) they are universally referred to as divertimentos--the one thing everyone agrees they are not.

    Whatever they're called, they are fine examples of Mozart's early essays in chamber music...Mozart composed them in 1772, when he was 16, not long before leaving Salzburg on his third (and, as it turned out, his last) trip to Italy. He was going to Milan to produce the opera 'Lucio Silla' on a commission from Count Firmian, governor-general of that city. He probably expected, from previous experience, to need music to entertain the count's court while he was at work on the opera. So it seems likely that these three works were composed to meet that need. Mozart may have planned to present them with a small orchestra, as Einstein surmises, but here they are played by the four instruments of a string quartet.

    The Divertimento in F, K. closer than [K. 136 & 137] to being what we now think of as a string quartet. The opening 'Allegro' is in the expansive style of the earlier pieces, but then the tone becomes more intimate. In the contemplative 'Andante' the first violin spins a melodic thread that ties all four strings into a close-knit, supportive quartet. This intricate ensemble work continues into the 'Presto' finale, a rondo that skips purposefully along with robust good humor. - Harvey B. Loomis
