A very English Entertainment

London Baroque

with Emma Kirkby

works by Purcell, Corelli, Arne, Smith e.o.

The legendary soprano and pioneer of Early Music joins forces with the London Baroque to present a varied programme of music which was heard in the English salons around the year 1700. As well as well-known works by Händel and Corelli, there are less frequently performed works by Bach's son Johann Christian, Thomas Arne and John Christopher Smith on the programme. Smith was for many years the assistant of Händel. When Händel in his old age became blind he allowed Smith to notate his compositions and sometimes even to complete them. Between 1753 and 1759 John Smith often conducted the performances of Händel's music.

Nelleke
ter Berg, theorbe, guitar and octave guitar

The instruments of the lute family have their origin in the oed (Arabian Lute) which was introduced into southern Europe by the Moors in the early middle ages. Over time many types of lute emerged. Their specific build and the technique for playing both influence the sound: lutes and guitars are played with the fingers. The mandolin is plucked with the shaft of a feather. Both found their place in Europe very fast.

Familiar repertoire on strange instruments

At the time of Bach instruments were often made to measure for their players or for the places where they were to be played. Because of this many different instrument sizes in the violin family emerged. This evening you will hear two nice examples. Bruno Cocset plays and alto and a tenor violin (an Amati) in among others two gamba sonatas and chorale preludes by Johann Sebastian Bach. He is accompanied by Richard Myron and Bertrand Cuiller.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach

Orkest van het Koninklijk Conservatorium

directed by Pieter Jan Belder

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was born 300 years ago. In the 18th century when people spoke of 'the Bach' they meant him. He was one of the greatest keyboard virtuosos and improvisers. We celebrate the anniversary of his birth with concertos for harpsichords, fortepianos and orchestra. Because such a celebration is unthinkable with fireworks, the sparkling concerto for 4 harpsichord written by his father is also on the programme.

This is also the concert for the Friends of Musica Antica; they have free admission!

NB: other venue!! Het Kruispunt is situated at the beginning of the Schoolstraat at nr 2, opposite supermarket AH.

Improvisation in Bachs music

An important part of musical practise in the 17th and 18th centuries was improvisation. This made each performance lively and unique.  Musical forms such as fantasies, toccatas and preludes had their origin in improvisation. Bach was known to his contemporaries as an organ virtuoso and improviser. When Bach improvised in Hamburg  for half an hour on the chorale By the Rivers of Babylon, Johann Adam Reincken said: "I thought that this art had died out, but I see that it lives on in you". The Scroll Ensemble will improvise on various themes of Bach, one of which is the theme from the Goldberg Varaiations.

Codex Lerma

Capella Sancta Maria en La Caravaggia

directed by Enriqie López-Corton

Music from the Codex Lerma

The Codex Lerma is a Spanish document which was discovered in the 19th century in an abandoned church in Burgos. It came into the possession of the University of Utrecht. At one time it belonged to the Duke of Lerma, a favourite of the Spanish King Philip III. It contains musical pearls by Italian, Spanish and French-Flemish composers - at the time immensely popular in Spain. The codex also contains unique anonymous instrumental works.

After centuries of silence these works will be brought to life thanks to a unique collaboration between researchers from Utecht, the singers of Capella Sancta Maria and the instrumentalists of La Caravaggia.

Italian music from the 14the century

It was not usual in the 14th century to write down music. This is because there was a lot of improvisation. How then do we know how the music sounded at that time? Luckily there are tracts from that period from which musicians of today can learn the improvisation techniques. The members of the Ensemble all'improvviso belong to a small number of specialists who convincingly bring to life this rarely heard 14th century music.

String quartets by Onslow and Schubert

Shortly before the French Revolution George Onslow was born in Clermont-Ferrand. He studies piano with Jan Ladislav Dusic in Hamburg and Johann Baptist Cramer in London. He also played the cello.

Even though these days he has almost been forgotten, in his own time he was considered to be an important composer. His symphonies and chamber music were originally mainly popular in Germany; Mendelssohn conducted one of Onslow's overtures. Later he was able to celebrate triumphs in France too; he was called the "French Beethoven".

The Ryu Strijk5tet plays his Quintet, opus 24/8 and the Quintet in C, D.956, by Franz Schubert, a  contemporary of Onslow.

Works by Graupner en J.S. Bach

According to the music theorist Johann Mattheson "the amorous Viola d'Amore wanted to express languishing and tender feelings." Mozart's father Leoplod writes about this instrument in his violin tract "that it is a special sort of violin which sounds beautiful, especially in the silence of the evening." Instruments in the most varied shapes and tunings were to be found. The special sound of the North German viola d'amore was obtained from its iron strings, that of the South German instruments from their strings made of gut and their iron resonance strings.

Perche da l’alta Reggia

Orkest van het Koninklijk Conservatorium

with several soloists and directed by Peter van Heygen

Modern premiere of highlights from the festive cantata by Niccolô Jomelli

Niccolò Jommelli was born in Naples and worked as assistant Kapellmeister in the St. Peter in Rome and as director of a conservatoire in Venice. In 1753 he became Kapellmeister at the court of the Duke of Württemberg in Stuttgart, and was responsible for the Italian influence in the German opera world. His festival cantata Perchè de l'alta Reggia for 2 sopranos, alto, tenor, various choirs and a double orchestra was commissioned by the French cardinal Frédéric Jérôme de la Rochefoucauld. This cantata was first performed in the Teatro Argentina in Rome in 1747 on the occasion of the marriage of crown prince Louis-Ferdinand and princess Maria-Joseph of Saxony. Thereafter the score was forgotten. This evening you are attending the first performance since 1747!

Works by Händel, Pepusch, Sammartini e.a.

Writing music for recreation developed around 1700 into a broad market for English musicians. The aristocracy and the well-to-do were good clients. Foreign musicians also saw the potential of this developing  business and travelled to London. A many-facetted musical life emerged from which the first subscription concerts emerged. Collegium Musicum Den Haag takes you back to that period.

In the 18th century arrangements of opera music for wind bands was an important source of income for composers. In a letter to his father Mozart writes "By Sunday week my opera must be orchestrated for a band, or someone will step in in front of me and take the profit... ".

After the enormous success of our visit to the Weense Prater last season we invite you to join us once again for an open-air concert. In the pleasant surroundings of Rusthof we will be treated to culinary highlights by Roberto Barbagallo from Vino & Cucina. The music will be provided by the wind band  L'Harmonie Nouvelle.
