Donald Nally conducts a program with a theme of waiting, longing and hope, featuring Kile Smith's "The Waking Sun" and Ted Hearne's "Fervor," interspersed with early music of Bach, Tompkins and Marenzio
. Tickets are $8 for the general public and $5 for full-time students with valid ID.
For example, Bertoglio writes that "the patrician Gesualdo felt possibly freer to experiment with unusual, unexpected and non-canonical passages and sonorities" than the "professional musician" Luca Marenzio
The audience then had the opportunity to compare the development of this Slovak composer's creative methods over the course of fifteen years, when the two musicians mentioned above were joined by trumpet player Jan Pribil for the world premiere of Democ's newest piece, A Luca Marenzio
. The expressive melodicism of the cello was here replaced by an emphasis on the timbral component of a static succession of fragile chords in very low dynamics.
Per questa ragione il talento dei compositori si applico fin dall'inizio alie opere minori di Tasso (dai bellissimi madrigali che rivitalizzavano il petrarchismo con una carica di sensualite, all'Aminta che travestiva di pan ni pastorali la cronaca galante della corte), ma fu l'abilita di autori come Jacques de Werth (1535-1596), Tiburzio Massaini (1550ca-1609ca), Luca Marenzio
(1553-1599) e Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) a mettere in musica alcune ottave della Gerusalemme liberata.
The initial repertoire performed at this musical club, which served as a mixing pot for leading professional musicians, aristocratic enthusiasts, and music theorists, concentrated on sacred music and madrigals of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (including works by Palestrina, Byrd, Marenzio
, and Victoria), but also soon began to combine this with more contemporary repertoire within the club's regular concert series.
(7.) To cite one instance: Marenzio
employs whole notes throughout in the soprano on the words occhi belli (beautiful eyes) in his madrigal, "Occhi lucenti e belli." Several other instances of this notational pun can be found.
The program will include English and Italian motets and madrigals by such Renaissance composers as Thomas Morley, Thomas Ravenscroft, Luca Marenzio
and Giovanni Palestrina.
which will include motets for Ascensiontide and Pentecost by Byrd, Tallis, Marenzio
, Palestrina and Stanford as well as two pieces in praise of St Cuthbert, one by John Roper and the other by Paul Spicer.
The music of Luca Marenzio
was a delightful discovery, and the sequence of songs and an instrumental piece by William Byrd confirmed the greatness and the versatility of this composer.
