In his day Caspar Joseph Mertz (b.1806) was one of the most sought-after musicians in Europe, the court guitarist of Empress Carolina Augusta whose performances (together with his wife Josephine Plantin on piano) became famous throughout Austria, Hungary and Germany. Today he is best remembered for the successful Barden-Klange, a cycle in which the guitar language of his time was enhanced to a stylistic expressiveness that parted sharply from contemporary works and which was more closely associated with the new, evocative aesthetics of the Romantic composers. The collection takes its title from the works of James Macpherson, the Scottish poet who in 1765 published the immensely successful The Works of Ossian translations of ancient Celtic poems that deal with motifs quite widespread in Romantic culture, such as the exaltation of warrior and chivalrous virtues. This release details 11 out of the 15 volumes of Barden-Klange, the remaining ones either not original works by Mertz or arbitrarily inserted into a later edition. Often the titles contain evocative overtones, such as Elfenreigen (Round Dance of the Elves), but in any case it is the music that always calls to mind images and settings from Macphersons poems, making good use of imitation throughout the collection. Performing these works is Italian guitarist Graziano Salvoni, who enjoys a busy schedule in his home country both as a soloist and with various chamber orchestras. He plays a Johann Anton Stauffer model named after and made by one of the most important luthiers in central Europe, a contemporary of Mertz and whose instruments it is highly likely the composer-virtuoso himself regularly performed on.
