es Violons du Roy takes its name from the celebrated court orchestra of the French kings. It was founded in 1984 by Bernard Labadie, now styled founding conductor, and continues under music director Jonathan Cohen to explore the nearly boundless repertoire of music for chamber orchestra in performances matched as closely as possible to the period of each work’s composition. Its minimum fifteen-member complement plays modern instruments, albeit with period bows for Baroque and Classical music, and its interpretations are deeply informed by the latest research on 17th- and 18th-century performance practice. The repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries receives similar attention and figures regularly on the orchestra’s programs. Les Violons du Roy has been a focal point of Québec City’s musical life since it was founded in 1984, and in 1997 it reached out to enrich the cultural landscape of Montréal as well. In 2007, the orchestra moved into its permanent home base in Québec City’s Palais Montcalm while continuing to build on the worldwide reputation it has acquired in countless concerts and recordings carried by medici.tv, Radio-Canada, CBC, and NPR along with regular appearances 8

on the festival circuit. Les Violons du Roy has performed dozens of times throughout Canada as well as in Germany, the U.K., Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, the United States, France, Israel, Morocco, Mexico, Norway, the Netherlands, Slovenia, and Switzerland, in collaboration with such world-renowned soloists as Magdalena Kožená (2006 and 2014), David Daniels (2001 and 2004), Vivica Genaux (2007), Alexandre Tharaud (2011, 2014, and 2016), Ian Bostridge (2011), Emmanuel Pahud (2012), Stephanie Blythe (2013), Marc-André Hamelin (2015), Philippe Jaroussky (2017), Anthony Marwood (2017), Isabelle Faust (2018), and Julia Lezhneva (2018). The orchestra has performed at the Berlin Philharmonie and iconic venues in London, Paris, and Brussels, with two performances on invitation at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Since Les Violons du Roy’s first trip to Washington, D.C., in 1995, its U.S. travels have been enriched with numerous and regular stops in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Its seven appearances at Carnegie Hall include three with La Chapelle de Québec featuring the Messiah, the Christmas Oratorio, and the St. John Passion under Bernard Labadie, founder and music tuesdaymusical.org ■ 330.761.3460

director of the choir, and another featuring Dido and Aeneas under Richard Egarr. Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles has hosted the orchestra three times, once with La Chapelle de Québec in the Messiah, again under Bernard Labadie. Les Violons du Roy is represented by Opus 3 Artists and Askonas Holt. The 32 recordings released thus far by Les Violons du Roy have been met with widespread critical acclaim. The 12 released on the Dorian label include Juno Award–winning recordings of Mozart’s Requiem with La Chapelle de Québec and of Handel’s Apollo e Dafne with soprano Karina Gauvin. A dozen more have appeared through a partnership between Les Violons du Roy and Quebec’s ATMA label, including 2008 First Violins Pascale Giguère Noëlla Bouchard Nicole Trotier Michelle Seto Fréderic Bednarz Second Violins Pascale Gagnon Angélique Duguay Véronique Vychytil Alexandre Sauvaire Violas Jean-Louis Blouin Annie Morrier Étienne Chénard Cellos Raphaël Dubé Julie Hereish

Program Notes George Frideric Handel (1685–1759) Excerpts from Tolomeo, Re d’Egitto, and Flavio, Re de’ Longobardi Concerto Grosso in D Minor, Opus 6, No. 10 Excerpts from Amadigi di Gaula and Rodelinda

B

orn a Saxon and adopted by the British as one of their own after settling in England at age 27, Handel expertly fused the national styles of his day, combining the Germanic science of counterpoint with French elegance and Italian vocalità. Before gaining renown as a composer of oratorio starting in the late 1730s, he was best known for his operatic work. He produced some 30 operas in London, including at the Royal Academy of Music, which he founded in 1719. It was there on April 30, 1728, that he premiered the opera Tolomeo, which borrows a libretto previously used by Domenico Scarlatti. The story is set on the island of Cypress circa 108 BCE, where Tolomeo, deposed by his mother in favor of his brother Alessandro, leads

14

a miserable existence under King Araspe. In the third act, after being forced to marry King Araspe’s sister and disavow his own wife, Tolomeo chooses to take his own life by swallowing poison just before launching into the recitative “Inumano fratel.” In the ensuing aria “Stille amare,” a poignant larghetto in B-flat minor, the fallen sovereign senses his impending death. Fortunately, Tolomeo’s poison turns out to be a sleeping potion, setting the scene for a happy and conciliatory ending. Completed five years earlier, the opera Flavio, Re de’ Longobardi combines the story of Flavio Cuniberto, 13th king of the Lombards (a northern Italian people), with amorous intrigue right out of Corneille’s Le Cid. The aria “Rompo i lacci” is sung in the second act by Guido (a role first performed, like Tolomeo, by the famous castrato Senesino). This tempestuous air in G minor has Guido — the young son of royal counselor Ugone — torn between his loyalty to his father, who has asked him to kill his rival Lotario in a duel, and

tuesdaymusical.org ■ 330.761.3460


tuesday musical 2018 | 2019

his love for Emilia, Lotario’s daughter. Only the central section, a tender largo in B-flat major, provides a moment of respite. Handel’s Concerti Grossi Opus 6 were composed in rapid succession in fall 1739 and are considered the high point of his instrumental output. The set of 12 concerti grossi is clearly in the lineage of Torelli and Corelli. Consisting of five movements, Concerto No. 10 begins with a French overture in D minor dominated by a recurrent four-note motif. The fugal allegro ends with a coda marked lentamente. Next is a slow aria in triple meter, then a bustling duple meter allegro. The penultimate allegro movement eloquently illustrates the basic principle of the concerto grosso: the opposition of a group of soloists (concertino) with the rest of the orchestra (ripieno). The delicate closing allegro moderato marks a return to French style in the bright key of D major. Amadigi di Gaula takes us back to 1715, when Handel was living with the Earl of Burlington while seeking to make a name for

himself on London’s music scene. Inspired by a libretto by Antoine Houdar de Lamotte, the opera premiered at the King’s Theatre. Amadigi, a Paladin, and Dardano, the prince of Thrace, are both in love with Princess Oriana, who only has eyes for Amadigi. The magnificent “Pena tiranna,” a sort of sarabande in D minor, is highly evocative of Rinaldo’s famous “Lascia ch’io pianga.” In this aria set in the second act, Dardano laments not being the focus of Oriana’s affection. The 1724-25 season was one of Handel’s most productive, with three of his biggest operatic masterpieces completed during this time: Giulio Cesare, Tamerlano, and Rodelinda. Inspired by Corneille’s tragedy Pertharite, roi des Lombards, the opera Rodelinda plunges us into the same world as Flavio. In the third act, Bertarido (another role first sung by Senesino), the Lombard king deposed by Grimoaldo, attempts to murder his usurper but instead assassinates Grimoaldo’s counselor, Garibaldo. In the heroic aria “Vivi, tiranno,” Bertarido challenges Grimoaldo to take his life without further ado.

Program Notes Philip Glass (born in 1937) Excerpts from Akhnaten, Symphony No. 3, Songs from Liquid Days, Monsters of Grace, and 1000 Airplanes on the Roof

B

efore becoming a leading exponent of musical minimalism (a genre based on the incantatory repetition of short patterns) and an icon known well beyond the classical sphere, U.S. composer Philip Glass studied at the Juilliard School, then in Paris with Nadia Boulanger. His meeting with the legendary Indian sitarist Ravi Shankar in 1965 was a turning point that helped forge Glass’s unique hypnotic style. A self-described theater composer, Glass first gained renown in 1976 for his opera Einstein on the Beach, which challenged operatic conventions by breaking down traditional narrative codes. The work kicked off a trilogy about “men who changed the world through the power of their ideas” (Glass), with Satyagraha (on Gandhi) in 1980 and Akhnaten, created in 1984 in Stuttgart. Based on the life of the pharaoh Akhenaton (14th century BCE), the opera includes texts

from original sources in ancient Egyptian, Akkadien, and Biblical Hebrew, linked with narrator commentary in a modern language. Akhnaten’s “Hymn to the Sun” at the close of the second act weaves together major and minor modes and spectacular dissonances. The piece pays tribute to the sun god Aton, whom the pharaoh worshipped exclusively, giving rise to the first known monotheistic religion. In addition to his operatic work, Glass has written 11 symphonies, the most recent of which premiered at Carnegie Hall on January 31, 2017. His Symphony No. 3 was first performed in 1995 in Künzelsau, Germany, under the direction of Dennis Russell Davies (who also conducted the premiere of Akhnaten) and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. By far the shortest of Glass’s symphonies at roughly 23 minutes long, it consists of four movements with no tempo indications. Glass considers the opening movement “a quiet, moderately paced piece [that] functions as prelude to movements two and three.” Songs from Liquid Days, recorded in 1986 with contemporary pop artists and performers such as the Philip Glass Ensemble and conductor Michael Riesman, further enhanced Glass’s reputation. The fourth track, the delightful “Liquid Days, Part One” with lyrics by David Byrne, was performed by the group The Roches. Twelve years later in Los Angeles, Glass penned Monsters of Grace, which he calls “a digital opera in three dimensions.” With 13 scenes, the work draws on poems by 13th century Sufi mystic Jelaluddin Rumi. Some audiences and reviewers took issue with the 3D animations used throughout the performance. Always game for unusual collaborations, Glass composed 1000 Airplanes on the Roof, a “science fiction music drama” in one act with text by David Henry Hwang, in 1988 in a Vienna airport hangar. This spaced-out work recounts the close encounters of M, the sole character, with extraterrestrial life forms who warn him that no one will believe him if he recounts his otherworldly experiences. — Emmanuel Bernier

Texts and Translations George Frideric Handel Inumano fratel… Stille amare (Tolomeo, HWV 25) RECITATIVO ACCOMPAGNATO Che più si tarda omai, Oh neghittose labbra, A dissetar con queste poche stille, Che Elisa ti presenta, L’empio furor della tua sorte irata ? Si beva, sì ! Inumano fratel, barbara madre, Ingiusto Araspe, dispietata Elisa, Numi o furie del ciel, cielo nemico, Implacabil destin, tiranna sorte, Tutti v’invito A gustar il piacer della mia morte. Ma tu, consorte amata, Non pianger, no, mentre che lieto spiro; Basta che ad incontrar l’anima mia, Quando uscirà dal sen, mandi un sospiro. ARIA Stille amare, già vi sento Tutte in seno, la morte a chiamar; Già vi sento smorzare il tormento, Già vi sento tornarmi a bear. RECITATIV Why do you delay further, O slothful lips,

In quenching, with these few drops That Elisa gives you, The pitiless rage of your angry fate? Yes, let me drink, yes! Inhuman brother, barbarous mother Unjust Araspes, merciless Elisa, Ye Gods, or Furies of heaven, hostile heaven, Implacable Destiny, tyrannical Fate, I invite all of you To delight in my death. But you, my beloved spouse, Do not weep, no, while I gladly die; Let it suffice that, to meet my soul When it leaves my bosom, you will send a sigh. ARIA Bitter drops, already I feel you All in my breast, calling for death; Already I feel you ease my torment, Already I feel you restore my happiness. George Frideric Handel Privarmi ancora… Rompo i lacci (Flavio, HWV 16) RECITATIVO Privarmi ancora dell’amata beltà? Ma pria che gli astri Febo nel ciel ricopra vendicati saran’ dal mio furore e l’onor vilipeso, e ’l genitore !

tuesday musical 2018 | 2019 ARIA Rompo i lacci, e frango i dardi che al mio seno amor scagliò; ma poi senza l’idol mio come, o Dio ! viver potrò !

ARIA Grief is the tyrant of my heart, nor do I ever hope to find compassion.

RECITATIV Taking my beloved beauty away From me, too? —But even before the stars are covered once more by Phoebus revenged shall be by my fury both my scorned honour and my father!

Frantic with love, my aching heart, besieged by grief, can find no peace. George Frideric Handel Vivi tiranno (Rodelinda, HWV 19)

ARIA I tear the snares and break the darts that Love hurled at my breast! But then, — without my darling how, oh God! can I exist?

Vivi, Tiranno! Io t’ho scampato. Svenami, Ingrato, Sfoga il Furor.

George Frideric Handel D’un sventurato amante… Pena tiranna (Amadigi di Gaula, HWV 11) ARIA Pena tiranna io sento al core, né spero mai trovar pietà.

Volli salvarti Sol per mostrarti Ch’ho di mia Sorte Più grande il Cor. Live, Tyrant! I have spared you. Bleed me, Ingrate, Vent your Fury. I wanted to save you Only to show you That my Heart is Nobler than my Fate.

Amor m’affanna e il mio dolore in tanti guai pace non ha.

O Jerusalem! Crossroads of Three faiThs Baroque orchestra jeannette sorrell

A new program from Jeannette Sorrell that weaves the four distinct and exotic quarters of Jerusalem into a celebration of brother & sisterhood.

Thou dost appear beautiful On the horizon of heaven Oh, living Aten He who was the first to live When thou hast risen on the Eastern Horizon Thou hast filled every land with thy beauty Thou art fair, great, dazzling, High above every land Thy rays encompass the land To the very end of all thou hast made All the beasts are satisfied with their pasture Trees and plants are verdant Birds fly from their nests, wings spread Flocks skip with their feet All that fly and alight Live when thou hast arisen

tuesday musical 2018 | 2019 We are old friends I offer love a beer Love watches television Love needs a bath Love could use a shave Love rolls out of the chair and wiggles on the floor Jumps up I’m laughing at love Drink me Drive... Breath... Drive… Sleep... Why do you ask? Still is the night It is much further Than we thought In liquid days Land travels hard Fly home daughter Cover your ears

Philip Glass In the Arc of Your Mallet (Monsters of Grace) Don’t go anywhere without me. Let nothing happen in the sky apart from me, Let nothing in this world, or that world, Without me being in its happening. Vision, see nothing I don’t see. Language, say nothing, The way the night knows itself with the moon, Be that way with me. Be the rose nearest to the thorn that I am. I want to feel myself in you when you taste food, In the arc of your mallet when you work. When you visit friends, When you go up on the roof by yourself at night. Ah! There’s nothing worse than to walk out along the street without you. I don’t know where I’m going. You’re the road and the knower of roads, More than maps, more than love.
