Bologna: Past and Present @ Handel House

Recital as part of the Handel House Talent scheme. Artem Belogurov, original harpsichord by Kirckman.

Bologna has a special place in the history of the development of the cello. With its large basilica, host to an abondant musical life, and the many influential composers active in the city, Bologna is the place where the “violoncello" was used as a solo instrument for the first time. Until then, the bass instrument of the violin family did not have a singular identity, was designated by a myriad of names and had various sizes and tunings. Composers like Domenico Gabrielli, Giuseppe Jacchini and Giovanni Battista Vitali, all of whom played the cello, wrote sonatas for the instrument and often gave it an important role in larger ensemble pieces and operas. This program pays an hommage to the birth place of the cello and its past serves as an inspiration to composers of the present.

Giuseppe Maria Jacchini (1667-1727), Sonata in A minor
Domenico Gabrielli (1659-1690), Ricercar for solo cello no.7 in D minor
Maxime McKinley (1979), Cortile di Pilato (2017)
Domenico Gabrielli, Sonata in G for cello and continuo (1689)
Hendrick Bouman, Sonata for cello and harpsichord
Giovanni Battista Vitali (1632-1692), Ruggiero, Passacaglia
Alex Groves, Curved Form (No.12) for cello & harpsichord (2018)

The Italian Haven @ AMuz, ACC & Hana Blazíková

Concert hosted by AMuz, Antwerp (BE).

Hana Blažíková, the Amsterdam Corelli Collective (the string orchestra that went down a storm at IYAP 2016) and Peter Van Heyghen join forces to present cantatas and motets by Georg Friedrich Handel for soprano and strings, including Salve Regina, HWV 241. They date from the period when Handel was working in Italy and adopting the Italian style as his own. The programme combines Handel with concerti grossi by Arcangelo Corelli and Pieter Hellendaal, one of Corelli’s followers in the Low Countries. Hellendaal’s modest oeuvre of Late Barque music is of surprisingly high quality. He wrote one of the most beautiful series of concerti grossi published in England in the 18th century, but today it is undeservedly one of the most neglected. Expect lashings of young talent on stage and music that has lost none of its freshness and spontaneity: an excellent combination!

Performers

Hana Blažíková, soprano | Ryuko Reid, violin & artistic leader | Mario Sarrechia, harpsichord & artistic leader | Peter Van Heyghen, coaching


Program

A. Vivaldi: Sinfonia in C major, RV 112 | A. Corelli: Concerto grosso in D major, opus 6 no. 1 | P. Hellendaal: Concerto grosso in D minor, opus 3 no. 2 | G.F. Handel: Salve regina, HWV 241 | E partirai, mia vita, HWV 111a | Qual ti reveggio, oh Dio ('Ero e Leandro'), HWV 15

Lecture-recital: Romantic Lab @Oxford

to Sep 12

Lecture-recital: Romantic Lab @Oxford

Lecture-recital ‘Romantic Lab: Experiments towards Late 19th- and Early 20th-century Performance Practice’, for the Perspectives on Historically Informed Practices in Music Conference taking place at the University of Oxford Faculty of Music, 10-12 September 2018.

Lecturers: Artem Belogurov (fortepiano) and Octavie Dostaler-Lalonde (cello)

     Romantic Lab is an online video blog dedicated to the study of late 19th- and early 20th-century performance practice. In this project we seek to learn by ear how to play in a style now lost by closely studying and imitating a selection of early recordings. Many of the early recording artists were intimately associated with composers whose music constitutes today’s standard repertoire and therefore their recordings are an invaluable source of information. In addition to listening, comparing, and imitating early recordings, we incorporate contemporaneous written evidence and annotated editions. We are documenting our progress in the form of videos, texts, annotated scores, and group discussions.

     The aim of this project is not only to learn how 19th-century performances differed from contemporary ones, but also to understand better how and in what context different expressive devices were put into practice. We will also address the important question of what can be learned from comparing recordings of the same pieces by different performers, taking into account individual approaches as well as common elements.

     In this lecture we will focus on a number of expressive devices: portamento, vibrato, tempo and rhythm modifications, hand dislocation in the piano part, and vertical alignment between the soloist and the accompanist. We will compare and analyse the use of each device by different performers and will subsequently apply them in our own live performance of short musical excerpts. We will also play complete pieces as an example of a possible contemporary interpretation informed by our research. 

     At the end of the lecture, we will summarise the similarities of interpretation as well as the differences and eccentricities of a selection of individual performers in order to both establish a general sense of style and to deepen our understanding of the performance practice of that time.

Romberg Dagen is a weekend of musical activities to celebrate cellist Bernhard Romberg's work and life and to discuss 19th-century performance practice.

The festival includes a masterclass, three lectures, and three chamber music concerts.

Directors: Maximiliano Segura Sanchez, Octavie Dostaler-Lalonde

Musicians: Artem Belogurov (Fortepiano), Maximiliano Segura Sanchez, Octavie Dostaler-Lalonde (Cellos) and Ensemble Schönbrunn: Marten Root (Flute), Johannes Leertouwer (Violin), Anneke van Haaften (Violin & Viola), Sara de Vries (Viola), Viola de Hoog (Cello)

Lecturers: Kate Bennett Wadsworth, Job ter Haar (with Olga Pashchenko, fortepiano), Octavie Dostaler-Lalonde

Masterclass with Jesper Christensen, featuring students of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the Utrecht Conservatory, the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, and the Scola Cantorum.

The Romberg Dagen directors would like to thank the Conservatorium van Amsterdam for hosting the events in their main hall, the Bernard Haitinkzaal.

About Bernhard Romberg:

Called ‘the hero of all violoncellists, the king of all virtuosos’ by the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, Romberg was a charismatic performer, and always played solos from memory. His own cello compositions combined techniques pioneered by earlier Mannheim cellists with those from the French violin school of Viotti. His thumb position fingerings fully exploited the stationary ‘block’ hand positions familiar to Anton Fils and J.B. Tricklir. By using all four fingers across all four strings, Romberg brought speed, range, dexterity and accessibility to the upper registers of the lower strings, and in his use of natural and artificial harmonics he anticipated Paganini's developments on the violin. He also explored bowing techniques suitable to the Tourte bow, and expanded the use of legato slurring and contrasting dynamics and timbres.
