multikulti.com; 2011-02
"...Karl Ignaz Augustin Kohaut to osiemnastowieczny autriacki kompozytor (z pochodzenia Czech), który wśród współczesnych zasłynął bardziej jako dyplomata i instrumentalista. Był bowiem wirtuozem lutni (z myślą o nim komponował m.in. Joseph Haydn) i bodaj ostatnim ważnym kompozytorem w histori muzyki piszącym na ten właśnie instrument. Lutnista Hubert Hoffmann i austriacki zespół prowadzony przez Gunara Letzbora przypominają go w podwójnej roli - wirtuoza, tego dla którego komponowano (stąd trio Haydna na lutnię, skrzypce i basso) oraz kompozytora, którego twórczość jest schyłkiem wielowiekowej tradycji. I robią to ze znakomitym wyczuciem. To płyta pełna zamyślenia, będąca jakby melancholijnym pożegnaniem z instrumentem przez wieki obecnym w szlacheckich i książęcych komnatach, który oto - i Kohaut musiał być tego równie świadom jak Letzbor - przechodzi do historii."
autor: Józef Paprocki


Editor's info:
The salon of Baron Gottfried von Swieten was the meeting place each Sunday between 12 noon and 2 pm of an illustrious circle, whose guests included Albrechtsberger, Wagenseil, Haydn and, later, Mozart. Joining them too, were Johann Starzer and Karl Kohaut as violinists.

Leopold Mozart had already sent reports in 1764 about "Monsieur Cahut (!), joier de la luth" during his trip to Paris with Nannerl and Wolfgang. Kohaut was staying there at the same time, also in his function as a court clerk to prepare for the marriage of Archduchess Maria Antonia - Marie Antoinette - to the Dauphin.

In the style of the transitional phase between baroque and classical, this music hailed the listener with a laughing cheeriness and innocence, very seldom encountered in Austrian baroque music. A playfulness in melodic structure, the paired-down instrumentation, the urge to simplification in harmony are strongly reminiscent of folk music, that still exists today.

The double bass concerto moreover proves Kohaut to be a connoisseur of the special bass instrument played in Viennese cultural circles.
The Viennese double bass is an autonomous instrument type with its own tuning, its own number of strings (5), its own construction, and thus its own potential in sound and technique.

Kohaut made his last will and testament on 24 March 1780. In paragraph 8 he decrees that "his lutes and other instruments, but especially his music manuscripts be preserved so long until someone is found who appreciates them and can use them". It was a special matter of concern for us, the members of the ensemble Ars Antiqua Austria, to comply with this wish and bring Karl Kohout "back home to Vienna" in our interpretations - which we hope will be the subject of Lively controversy.
