The Idée Fixe
To mark the return of this weekly programme of record requests from the under-20s, Christopher Hogwood uncovers a sequence of Fixed Ideas. He starts with a fixed single note written for a King by Josquin, and similar experiments in monotone by Purcell and Peter Cornelius , progressing to an idée fixe of four notes in Schmelzer's Sonata No 4, an idée royale incorporated in the trio-sonata of Bach's Musical Offering and finally the idee fixe of Miss Harriet Smithson in Berlioz's Symphonic fantastique.
