THIS IS the 11th and final volume of Brautigam’s recordings of all Haydn’s keyboard music. The single work featured is an oddity: the keyboard arrangement of the seven slow movements (with an introduction and a dramatic postlude, depicting the earthquake) of the Seven Last Words. Conceived for orchestra in 1786-87, the work was almost immediately published in this version and one for string quartet. The keyboard arrangement isn’t Haydn’s work at all, though he did correct the proofs. Yet it is an intimate work, made more so by this scoring.
The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour On the Cross (German: Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze) is an orchestral work by Joseph Haydn, commissioned in 1786 for the Good Friday service at Oratorio de la Santa Cueva (Holy Cave Oratory) in Cádiz, Spain. Published in 1787 and performed then in Paris, Berlin and Vienna, the composer adapted it in 1787 for string quartet and in 1796 as an oratorio (with both solo and choral vocal forces), and he approved a version for solo piano. Some fifteen years ago I was requested by a canon of Cádiz to compose instrumental music on the Seven Last Words of Our Savior On the Cross. It was customary at the Cathedral of Cádiz to produce an oratorio every year during Lent, the effect of the performance being not a little enhanced by the following circumstances.
