…The music included in this volume is exclusively Italian, and by now its composers have almost fallen into oblivion. However, Troilus' interest in them proves their remarkable value. One of them, Enrico Radesca di Fogia, an organist and since 1615 a conductor of the Duke's music ensemble in Turin, is in fact represented by a unique collection of all the five books of canzonette, arias and madrigals. Among them, there …Thanks to the care devoted by the Milanese dance master Cesare Negri to the preparation of his treatise for press (1602), a number of pieces composed as occasional music has been preserved, unlike many others which did not have the honour to be recorded permanently. In his effort to provide the reader with the musical accompaniment to the published dances and balletti, he recorded a host of unique compositions, albeit often in rough outline only. …..In most of the parts of the volume, vocal - monodic music is predominant. These monophonic songs - accompanied monodies - were among the novelties of the time and the reason why they appeared was the difficult comprehensibility of the text of polyphonic compositions.

W.F. Bach - Oeuvres pour Clavecin

22 tracks – MP3 192 Kbps – RAR 134Mb

Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-1784), considered by many the most talented of J. S. Bach's children, is also the least known of the great master's three composing sons. In contrast to his father's orderly, wholesome and responsible lifestile, Wilhelm Friedemann's was erratic and characterized by excesses. Add to that a puzzling inability to "market" himself, and you will easily understand why this (in my, and many other's opinion) genius ended his life in abject powerty.

Le Chansonnier Cordiforme is a ravishingly beautiful illuminated manuscript, shaped like a double heart, and assembled in the early 1470s, about the time of the death of Dufay, a generation after the deaths of Dunstable and Binchois, and just as men such as Ockeghem were becoming famous. According to annotator David Fallows, “The Chansonnier contains the most compact and representative surviving collection of the classic European courtly song repertory in those years. Most of the songs that achieved the widest popularity at the time are here.” The book looks sublime; its original owner, though, was evidently a scoundrel. Jean de Montchenu was described at the time as “a great scoundrel, shameful of conduct, highly unchaste, destestable, dissolute, and full of vices.” He became a monk and then a bishop, but was finally excommunicated. The book came about, it is thought, when he was connected with the Duchy of Savoy (since 1860 a part of France).Most of the music collected on these three CDs is anonymous or of uncertain provenance, but there are songs by Dufay, Ockeghem, Bedyngham, and Busnoys. Perhaps illustrating the ambivalent political stance of the House of Savoy, the first disc is in Italian; the others are in French. Some of these songs are sweetly plaintive; others, such as Ockeghem’s L’Autre d’antan l’autrier passa, energetic. The Ockeghem tells the story of a man who repeatedly is enticed by the looks or embraces of women who desert him; the first has a “look forged in Milan,” which is evidently particularly devastating. (Avoid women whose looks seem to have been “forged.”) While there are now readily available discs devoted to Ockeghem and Dufay, including excellent ones on Naxos, there’s no other song collection that I know of like this one: It’s an anthology of medieval music before things started to change. It’s a rich collection, beautifully played and sung, highly recommended for anyone with an interest in early music. Reproductions of the manuscript have evidently been made with infinite care. The notes tell you where you may find them, but warn the gentle reader that you also cannot afford them.

Tres Culturas

Spain had two Golden Ages: in the 1500s, during the Age of Exploration, it colonized the Americas and was so powerful that it challenged England with an armada; but there was an earlier one, during the Medieval period when Spain was conquered by tolerant Arabs and became a cosmopolitan world center where Muslim, Christian, and Jew mingled and prospered. This album features musical examples of the three cultures.
