 Update me on new releases by Schroder

Jaap Schroder (b1925)

Schröder, a contemporary and compatriot of Herman Krebbers and Theo Olof, studied in Paris and Amsterdam and occupies a senior and well-respected position as a specialist in Baroque and classical repertoire, moving into nineteenth-century repertoire with his Atlantis Trio. He was for some time concertmaster of the Hilversum Radio Chamber Orchestra.

Schröder has devoted much of his career to researching and recording lost and lesser-known works of the 17th and 18th centuries. In the 1970s he was a pioneer in bringing existing principles of historically-aware Baroque performance to bear on classical repertoire, often with his Quartetto Esterházy. When the Quartetto disbanded Schröder became music director and concertmaster of London’s Academy of Ancient Music, who recorded a landmark set of Mozart’s complete symphonies under his direction—the first to use period instruments. Although demonstrating some fine playing, Schröder’s recent ventures into Romantic repertoire are, unfortunately, not really historically accurate. His period-instrument Atlantis Trio indulges in too much vibrato and there is very little portamento, a technique documented as early as 1786 in Mestrino’s Parisian concerts and unquestionably part of the style known to Mendelssohn and his contemporaries. Features of nineteenth-century pianism are also lacking.
