About Jodel Concerto

Concerti anachronistici for various solo instruments, strings and basso continuo

Concerti anachronistici for various solo instruments, strings and basso continuo

Dominique Roggen has always loved writing music that adheres to Baroque-era principles of musical counterpoint, form, and style.

This love is what led him to write his concerti anachronistici: concerted works written for instruments that were invented or developed long after the Baroque era, such as the accordion, the soprano saxophone, the euphonium, the tuba, the alto trombone and the marimba.

He has even written neo-Baroque concertos for the dulcimer and for natural yodeling. The Concerto in F major for Natural Yodeling voice, strings, and basso continuo has attracted particular attention. It has been performed several times for television broadcast, and was recorded by the WDR Radio Orchestra, Cologne.

The first and second movements of these concerti are reminiscent of a typical instrumental concerto from the early 18th century. The final movements are usually humorous in character, and contain references to music of the present day, to Swiss folklore, and sometimes even to pop music and jazz.

The present Jodel Concerto for Jodel voice, Strings and Basso Continuo is the first concerto in this series. Notable within the final movement is the easily recognizable folk song, S’troumt am Babeli.
