    Actus tragicus

    Bach’s legacy is deeply rooted in the musical traditions of central Europe, and we find in the Leipzig master’s works the unmistakable influence of his elder colleagues and of members of Bach’s very large extended family. Johann Sebastian not only revered the music of those composers, but also made himself copies of their works for the purpose of performing them on a variety of occasions. By looking into the Bach archives, we discover a world of extraordinary musical beauty and inspiration.

    Madrigali guerrieri ed amorosi

    Claudio Monteverdi’s last collection bears the subtitle Madrigals of War and Love. In it, the composer equates the snares and fits of love with pitfalls and combat. In his last book of madrigals, the ingenious master of musical drama crosses over between genres and combines the perfection of vocal counterpoint with modern monody, bringing elements of operatic rhetoric to the madrigal.

    Stabat Mater

    Domenico Scarlatti won fame primarily as a harpsichord virtuoso and a composer for his own instrument. In his moving Stabat Mater, however, he introduces himself as a master of vocal polyphony, and he puts to good use the excellent training in counterpoint that he received from his father Alessandro. Also on the programme is Zelenka’s emotional music composed for worship services during Holy Week.

    Missa dolorosa

    The Italian Antonio Caldara and the Spaniard Emanuele d’Astorga belong to the generation of late Baroque composers who moved in the circles of the imperial court in Vienna. While Caldara was employed there as the respected deputy of the court Kapellmeister J. J. Fux, d’Astorga merely passed through Vienna as a sort of enfant terrible of the musical scene. His chamber cantata Stabat Mater (ca. 1707) exhibits not only the composer’s skill, but also his ability to express effectively the depth of the content of the great Medieval sequence. Caldara wrote his Missa dolorosa in 1735 as one of that highly prolific composer’s last works.

    Il duello amoroso

    The Italian vocal music that was flourishing at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries took a great variety of forms. The little dramatic forms by G. F. Handel and A. Stradella that border on the madrigal, cantata, and serenata are an excellent example of the mastery of their creators, who were able to play out the drama of human emotions and vocal virtuosity even on a minimal scale.

    Cantate Domino

    At the end of the Renaissance and the beginning of the Baroque, from 1609 to 1612 at St Mark’s Basilica, there was an encounter between two geniuses: the aging Giovanni Gabrieli, in whose works the Venetian polychoral style reached its absolute zenith, and the youthful Heinrich Schütz, later the creator of German Protestant music. In 1619 Schütz published his collection Psalmen Davids, which does not conceal the powerful influence of his Italian teacher. Gabrieli’s Venetian concertos and Schütz’s Dresden psalm settings are supplemented by little duets from the collection Kleine Geistliche Konzerte, which Schütz published in Leipzig in 1636.

    Ad majorem Dei gloriam

    Marc-Antoine Charpentier and André Campra were among the composer who had the greatest influence over French opera between Lully and Rameau. They also left an enormous legacy in the field of sacred music. While Charpentier, a pupil of Giacomo Carissimi, and Sébastien de Brossard exhibit clear Italian influences in their music, André Campra was a successor to the aesthetic ideals of Jean-Baptiste Lully.

    Mirabile mysterium

    The Slovene Jacob Gallus Handl, a pioneer of the Venetian polychoral technique, belonged to the circle of composers at the Prague court of Emperor Rudolf II. His spatial or chromatic compositions beautifully capture the magical atmosphere of Prague in Rudolf’s day. The Parisian neo-classicist Francis Poulenc was one of the greatest composers of vocal and choral music of the twentieth century. His compositions take their inspiration primarily from the High Renaissance. In fact, in the motet Exultate Deo we even find a direct quote from Palestrina. His Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël refer back to Monteverdi’s laments and to other musical forms of the early Baroque.
