Jaap Schröder

 

Jaap Schröder, distinguished Dutch violinist and musical pedagogue, has enjoyed a multi-faceted career: quartet player, baroque violinist, soloist, conductor and teacher. He has long been engaged in research into violin literature of the 17th and 18th centuries and was one of the international pioneers in the founding of ensembles to perform in historically appropriate playing styles, notably with Quadro Amsterdam and Concerto Amsterdam. As a soloist, Mr. Schröder has recorded repertoire ranging from works by Biber, through the J. S. Bach solo suites and sonatas, to the complete violin cycle of Beethoven for such labels as Harmonia Mundi, Virgin Classics and Smithsonian. He has directed concerts and recordings on both sides of the Atlantic of such prestigious ensembles as the Academy of Ancient Music and the Smithsonian Chamber Orchestra. As a chamber musician he has founded several ensembles including the Smithson Quartet, Quartetto Esterhazy, and the Atlantis Trio & Atlantis Ensemble. His recordings have won many awards including a Grammy nomination. Mr. Schröder has taught on the faculties of the Yale School of Music and the Luxembourg Conservatory, and is frequently invited as a visiting performer-scholar to other universities and music conservatories in America and Europe.

FELIX MENDELSSOHN  
THE YOUNG FELIX MENDELSSOHN  
The Atlantis Ensemble - Jaap Schröder  
Conventional wisdom has it that Felix Mendelssohn came into his own as a composer at the age of 16 in 1825, with the composition of his string Octet and the Overture to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. This release, the final volume of the Atlantis Ensemble’s Mendelssohn 2009 project, reveals the lesser-known riches among the works written by young Felix in the years immediately preceding, 1822-1824. Jaap Schröder and his colleagues take us directly into the prosperous Mendelssohn household of the 1820s, a remarkable environment that nurtured young Felix, the prodigy.

Ludwig van Beethoven  
Piano Trio, Op. 1, No. 3; Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 36  
The Atlantis Trio - Penelope Crawford (fortepiano), Jaap Schröder (violin), Enid Sutherland (cello)  
Beethoven arrived in Vienna in 1792 to undertake studies with Joseph Haydn. His first published works were a set of three piano trios, Opus 1, of which the third, in C minor revealed the new and dramatic aesthetic that Beethoven would further develop during the next thirty-five years of his residency in Vienna. That trio is presented here along with Beethoven’s own piano trio arrangement of his Second Symphony in D major, Op. 36 and the Allegretto in B-flat major, WoO 39. The Atlantis Trio provides masterful interpretations on instruments of Beethoven’s period.

Franz Schubert (1797-1827)  
Franz Schubert - Piano Trios, Op. 99 & 100  
The Atlantis Ensemble - Penelope Crawford (fortepiano), Jaap Schröder (violin), Enid Sutherland (cello)  
Schubert’s two piano trios are among the crowning achievements of early 19th century chamber music. They date from the final two years of the composer’s short life and inspired similar compositions for the same ensemble by Mendelssohn and Schumann. In this newly re-mastered release of their celebrated recording, the Atlantis Trio provides benchmark performances on instruments of the period.

Franz Schubert (1797 -1828)  
Schubert in Skálholt I  
Skálholt String Quartet Jaap Schröder, Rut Ingólfsdóttir, violins Svava Bernharðsdóttir, viola Sigurður Halldórsson, cello *Bruno Cocset, 2nd cello  
In 1820 Schubert began to create a new voice in the realm of the string quartet, with the unfinished Quartettsatz (Quartet movement) in C minor, D. 703. Just eight years later he completed his chamber masterpiece: the sublime String Quintet in C major, D. 956. Within six weeks of offering the work to a publisher he was dead. This CD inaugurates a four-volume survey of Schubert’s later quartets and quintet, performed by the Skálholt Quartet of Iceland, led by legendary Dutch violinist, Jaap Schröder.
