Festival bulletin


Welcome to Utrecht! This same sentiment was expressed in 1713 when diplomats from across Europe were received in Utrecht. Their goal was to restore European political equilibrium and establish peace – not through the clash of arms but by means of negotiations and even festivities. 2013 marks the third centenary of the Treaty of Utrecht. The Early Music Festival joins in the celebrations with a 10-day musical feast that reflects upon European issues in its own unique way. Happily, during the upcoming Festival, Utrecht will be justified more than ever in presenting itself as the European and even the world capital of early music. The International Lute Days will attract devotees to the city from throughout the world. We will also host two major European professional conferences: REMA, the European network of early music festivals and concert organisers, and AEC, the representative body of the early music faculties of European conservatoires, will be brought into formal and informal contact with each other for the first time. It is no mere coincidence that this meeting will take place in Utrecht. However, the Utrecht Early Music Festival wishes above all to meet its primary responsibility as the world’s largest early music festival; namely, bringing first rate artistic quality and content to a wide and enthusiastic public. With the programme that you are now holding, this is bound to succeed. Ciconia, Lassus, Froberger, Muffat and a legion of first-rate musicians with their hearts in the right place all join together to say: Welcome to Utrecht! Xavier Vandamme Director

on the occasion of : the treaty of utrecht

(1713) Precisely 300 years ago Utrecht was for a brief period the centre of the world. In 1713 the War of the Spanish Succession came to an end, and with it a century and a half of bloody religious wars. This was achieved exclusively by diplomatic not military means. The result: a new European equilibrium, with national borders that have remained recognisable up to the present day. Utrecht played the role of UN headquarters before this organisation ever came into being. All negotiations took place here, although a French diplomat could not resist ironically pointing out to the Dutch that the talking took place ‘chez vous, de vous et… sans vous’. In 2013 Utrecht celebrates the third centenary of the Treaty of Utrecht. The 2013 Early Music Festival adopts this theme, while immediately broadening its perspective. 1713 is not the topic of this festival; rather, the underlying European problem of unity in diversity. Four composers guide us on our way – Ciconia, Lassus, Froberger and Muffat; all of them European travellers. However, this festival is also a tribute to the many other globetrotting musicians who wove a fascinating web of migrating musical styles, thus transforming the European map into a colourful swirl of shifting arrows.

Johannes Ciconia

Orla ndu s La ssus

Four Europeans in the spotlight   Johannes Ciconia (c. 1370-1412) was born in the environs of Leuven and ended up in Padua – probably after stopovers in Paris, Rome and Pavia. He lived at a time when the Catholic Church was torn by internal division, with two and ultimately even three popes reigning simultaneously; a situation creating tension throughout Europe. Ciconia was one of the great figures of late medieval music. He bridged the divide between the French Ars Nova and Ars Subtilior and the Northern Italian tradition.

The multi-talented Renaissance genius Orlandus Lassus (1532-1594) was in a unique category of his own. He was in effect the most celebrated composer of Europe around 1570. Lassus’s oeuvre is vast – no less than 79 volumes were published during his lifetime and he wrote more than 2,000 works encompassing all the genres of his day. Strikingly, though, he did not combine the diverse national musical idioms that he had mastered.German songs, French chansons and Italian madrigals: Lassus kept them all neatly separated.

Johann Jakob Froberger

Georg Muf f a t

The keyboard giant Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) brought together the great European styles of the early 17th century. The German studied with Frescobaldi in Rome and befriended the harpsichordist Louis Couperin and the French lutenists in Paris. Froberger integrated the diverse national keyboard idioms of Italy, France and Germany. The highly personal touch that he added to his compositions often turned them into unalloyed ego-documents. In this way Froberger paved the way for the keyboard to emerge as a solo instrument capable of the highest individual expression.

Georg Muffat (1653-1704) was born in Savoy and soon came into contact with the muscular chic of Lully in Paris, which he combined with the wealth of colours that he encountered in Pasquini and Corelli in Rome. His resulting oeuvre includes extraordinary orchestral music in which the cosmopolitan Muffat strove to create a musical idiom that would transcend national styles and, as he himself wrote in his Florilegium primum, herald ‘the harmony between the nations; cherished Peace’.

A r t ist i n resi d e n ce

paul van nevel The Flemish Renaissance specialist and conductor Paul Van Nevel is artist in residence at this year’s Utrecht Early Music Festival. He gives three concerts with his Huelgas Ensemble, sketching the portrait of one of the most versatile and talented composers of the Renaissance: Orlandus Lassus (1532-1594). ‘Lassus was the standard-bearer of Franco-Flemish polyphony at the end of the Renaissance. He was virtuosic, versatile and had a great sense of feeling for what was happening around him, with regard to music, politics or general culture. I know of no greater melancholic than Lassus, however he combined this quality with an unprecedented sense of humour, which he never hesitated to express in his music.’ Founded in 1971 by Paul Van Nevel, the Huelgas Ensemble is among Europe’s most illustrious performers of medieval and Renaissance polyphonic music. They are hailed for their clear, well-balanced sound and their interpretations based on extensive knowledge.

baroque dance : the quintessential european language Baroque dance was a language common to all of Europe. The dance was a means of communication for courtiers and diplomats as well as a structural prinicple for composers. France played a dominant role in this development: Louis XIV oversaw the development of a dance notation, which enabled the French dance to be easily disseminated throughout Europe. Has your love of Early music made you curious to know more about Baroque dance? Would you like to discover the effect that a practical Baroque dance workshop has on your listening experience? Or perhaps you are a musician and you would like to know the ideal tempo for those courantes and menuets. Seize your chance: Rachel Farr will guide you in taking your first steps on the dance floor. Over four consecutive days she will deal with a single dance type at a time, so that you can really learn something. Notation and technique will be discussed and, naturally, everybody will dance together. These workshops will be complemented by dance performances featuring 17th- and 18th-century choreographies.

utrecht : european capital of early music Even more than usual, the Utrecht Early Music Festival will be a central meeting point for early music professionals from across Europe. During the closing weekend the Early Music Festival and the Utrecht Conservatoire will co-host two major international gatherings. REMA, the European network of early music festivals and concert organisers, and AEC, with representatives of the early music faculties of the European conservatoires, will come into contact with each other on both a formal and informal basis for the first time. The Early Music Festival is proud to be able to bring music educators and concert promotors together. It serves to underline Utrecht’s position as the undisputed European capital of early music.

utrecht : discover the future of early music The Utrecht Early Music Festival has been a springboard for young talent since the very first edition in 1982. Naturally, the main festival programme offers ample space for new ensembles each year, while the youngest generation of musicians who are still students can present themselves in the Festival Fringe concerts.The fringe programme presents around 70 ensembles and soloists in concerts with free admission: not infrequently, exceptional talent of the future is discovered here. During their stay in Utrecht the musicians will receive extra guidance in the form of career advice given by professionals including concert programmers, impresarios, journalists and inspiring musicians. Two ensembles will have the opportunity to participate in a masterclass with Skip SempĂŠ. He will coach them the finer points of ensemble playing in late Renaissance and Baroque repertoire. The masterclasses are open to the public, as is the final presentation given by the ensembles on 31 August at 15.30. The fringe programme will be published in the third number of the Oude Muziek magazine, which will appear in mid August. From 1 August you will also find the fringe programme at www.oudemuziek.nl/fringe.

negotiating music The Treaty of Utrecht created a new European equilibrium by means of negotiation, not weapons. In the early 18th century a new, combined European taste also emerged within music, uniting the national styles that had developed in the previous decades. Music had been a crucial element of cultural diplomacy for centuries, whether as a symbol of the power of the state or as a lubricant smoothing the path for political negotiations. This symposium explores various kinds of musical negotiations, from the Thirty Years War to the Treaty of Utrecht. Musicians experienced the constant waging of war as extremely restrictive; however, diplomatic contact often enabled the exchange of new music and ideas. Guest curator Rebekah Ahrendt (Yale University) has put together a programme focusing on the relationship between musicians and diplomats (with Constantijn Huygens serving as an example), European celebrations of the Treaty of Utrecht and musicians such as Atto Melani and Agosto Steffani, who also served as diplomats. Official Language: English Speakers: Rebekah Ahrendt, David Irving, Fred Jacobs, Scott Edwards, Robert Rawson, Anna Tedesco, Luise Stein, Roger Freitas, Colin Timms, Dorothea Schrรถder, Peter Leech, Jennifer Thirope, Alison de Simone, Barbara Nestola The definitive programme will available from 1 June at: www.oudemuziek.nl/symposium

early music carillon festival The third edition of the Early Music Carillon Festival once again places the Dom carillon in the limelight. Every Festival day there will be a carillon concert that is thematically linked to the 2013 Early Music Festival – #Europe. Utrecht’s city carillonneur Malgosia Fiebig will play a leading role, however she has also invited several of her pre-eminent colleagues to participate. Upand-coming talent will be showcased in the carillon fringe. Not for the faint-hearted: during the carillon concerts on 24 and 31 August fifteen persons will be admitted to make the ascent and enjoy a close-up view of the carillon, while on 25 August a guided tour for children will take place. On 31 August at approximately 22.00 VJ on the Dom beats Baroque will begin: a magnificent open-air spectacle on the Domplein. This is the crowning event of the festivities surrounding the third centenary of the Treaty of Utrecht. The Dom carillon will be played live and combined with the sounds of five other European carillons. The Dom tower itself will be transformed into a gigantic projection screen upon which the new media collective Born Digital will give full rein to its creativity. Later that evening the concert will turn into a DJ mix featuring the DJs Kypski and Francesco Tristano. VJ on the Dom has been organised in a unique collaboration between the Utrecht Early Music Festival, the Gaudeamus Music Week, the Utrecht Carillon Society, the city carillonneurs Arie Abbenes (emeritus) and Malgosia Fiebig, the computer artists Born Digital and the Treaty of Utrecht.

ist Gunar Letzbor is one of the main champions of Austrian Baroque repertoire, which has so far remained largely unexplored. Besides his orchestra of strings and winds he also brings the St Florian children’s choir – in which the young Bruckner used to sing – to Utrecht for the Festival’s opening concert.

During the other half of this dubble concert you will be treated to a concert of intimate chamber music, given by Festival musicians at a unique location you would be unlikely to visit otherwise. What’s on the programme? A surprise awaits you!

Muffat: the European

Georg Muffat was born in Savoy, a region noted for cultural exchange. This may explain why he had such an open attitude towards diverse international styles and influences. He travelled to Rome to become acquainted with Corelli’s music and worked with the great master Lully in Paris. Peter van Heyghen is the artistic director of the Brussels Baroque orchestra Les Muffatti. He presents Muffat in an international context and talks about the concert that he will conduct later in the day.

This year the Pandhof on the Domplein is once again the perfect place to enjoy a drink and a snack between the festival activities, to browse in the Festival CD shop or to swap experiences with other festival visitors. Here you can pick up your concert tickets or free fringe tickets from the Festival Box Office. You can also listen to carillon and fringe concerts every day. The Pandhof Festival Centre is located on the Domplein and will be open every day from 10.00 a.m. until late in the evening. The Box Office and CD shop are open from 10.00 to 18.00.

Throughout the city centre of Utrecht, members of the Utrecht Bell Ringers Guild will present a church bell concert, starting with the bells of the Dom Tower and gradually building up to the imposing sound of all 13 bells ringing at once. Afterwards the other church bells in the city will be added to the concert until church bell music echoes across the entire city.

Charlemagne: King and Emperor

Jos van Immerseel Froberger & Byrd on harpsichord

In the year 800 Charlemagne became emperor of a realm that encompassed almost the whole of Western Europe, thus earning the enduring honorary title Father of Europe. More than 350 years after his death he was elevated to sainthood. Political opportunism was perhaps the greatest motivating factor behind his canonisation: the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa exploited his historical predecessor in order to bolster his own stature and claim direct lineage from the Roman emperors. Sequentia creates a trait d’union linking both these aspects of Charlemagne, juxtaposing early Latin songs from Charlemagne’s court with 12th-century masses.

The harpsichordist Jos van Immerseel focuses on the Italian inspired composer Froberger with his capriccios, toccatas and canzonas. The source of this influence is unmistakeable: Froberger studied in Rome with the other great master of 17th-century keyboard music, Girolamo Frescobaldi. In this recital Van Immerseel places Froberger alongside his much older, but similarly Catholic colleague: William Byrd, juxtaposing the Italian polyphonic tradition with the expressive music of the English virginalists. 36

Lassus in time of crisis

Musical solace for a king in exile

Orlando di Lasso saw his carefree existence come to an end as the imperium of his employer Duke Albrecht of Bavaria collapsed between 1575 and 1580. This left its mark on Lassus’s work. An edition issued by the publisher Berg in 1577 reveals the effects of the necessary cutbacks, featuring two-part motets, in a period when five- and sixvoice motets were the norm. However, Lassus would not be Lassus if the quality of his music were to suffer as a result. The Egidius Kwartet presents chansons, German songs, madrigals and motets, all dating from around 1577.

Following the invasion by William of Orange the English king James II lost his throne, although it was said that he regained his soul in doing so. He no doubt suffered great humiliation living in exile as a guest of the French King Louis XIV; however, music may have brought him some solace. Le Jardin Secret plays the Italian music familiar to the Stuarts in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, as well as the newly composed French repertoire of the period. Thus Campra, Visée, Charpentier and Carissimi will join forces in this concert. 37

Dining in Treaty style

Muffat, Pez, Corelli and the concerto grosso

In collaboration with one of Utrecht’s best restaurants, Huize Molenaar, the Early Music Festival offers the unique 1713 Dinner, based on historical recipes. You may choose from three different tables d’hôte, for which the chef Pepijn Gilsing drew his inspiration from historical cookbooks such as De Nieuwe, Welervarene Utrechtsche Keuken-meid (1771). On offer daily in the charming Paushuize, nearby the Pandhof Festival Centre. (see p. 8-9)

Les Muffatti’s star is on the ascendant: they made an ambitious recording of Pez, Bononcini and Leclair and last year they astounded the Utrecht Festival public with an unknown but extraordinarily dramatic St Matthew Passion by Bach’s contemporary Reinhard Keiser. The Baroque orchestra was a definite must for this year’s festival, since its namesake features so prominently in the programming. The concert is based on the concerto grosso, a genre that spread from Rome to the north. Corelli’s rarely heard Sinfonia in D minor will also be performed.

Whether Ciconia ever actually worked in the papal city of Rome is uncertain, however we do know that he arrived in the university city of Padua around the age of thirty. By then he was already a respected composer. The eight motets that can definitely be ascribed to him date from this period: the majority being dedicated to notable figures from Padua and Venice. Mala Punica presents their core repertoire: the unprecedented, nearly exotic refinement of the Italian fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

Ciconia, the European

Malgosia Fiebig Froberger and Muffat on the carillon

Like so many of his colleagues, the Leuven-born composer Ciconia was drawn to sunny Italy. After presumably stopping over in Rome and Pavia he arrived in Padua around 1400. Ciconia’s music combines styles: he was familiar with the late northern Ars Nova, but he adopted the local Italian style with equal assurance. Pedro Memelsdorff, leader of Mala Punica and recently appointed director of the Schola Cantorum in Basel, obtained his doctorate at the University of Utrecht several years ago. He elaborates on a subject that has become his life’s work: the study of Ciconia and his contemporaries..

While Froberger’s keyboard oeuvre is primarily intended for harpsichord or organ, his toccatas, suites and fantasias are also particularly convincing when performed on the carillon. Malgosia Fiebig also plays an arrangement of Georg Muffat’s second sonata for strings and continuo from his compilation Armonico Tributo, which clearly reflects the influence of both the Italian and French styles. + Children’s tour of carillon playing 5+ Children must be accompanied by an adult In collaboration with Toerisme Utrecht Starting time: 11.30, duration: 75 minutes Meeting point: entrance to the Dom Tower, Domplein 21 € 5 pp, order number 16

the musical centre of Europe

Bob van Asperen The monastery on the island of Reichenau in Lake Boden has been called the cradle of European musical culture: Abbot Berno was the great reformer of Gregorian chant in the eleventh century, with its division into eight modes. His most important student was Hermannus, born exactly 1000 years ago this year: a medieval homo universalis. We will hear antiphonies, responsories and hymns from his hand, performed by the nine singers of the German ensemble Ordo Virtutum directed by Stefan Morent, an authority on medieval music.

Froberger: on the organ and harpsichord

Clearly, a substantial portion of Froberger’s keyboard oeuvre was intended to be performed on the organ. Bob van Asperen performs several Italianinspired toccatas, a ricercare, a fantasia and capriccio on the organ, followed by the suite XV and the superb Lamentation on the death of Froberger’s employer Ferdinand III: music that was unmistakably composed for the harpsichord. He completes the programme with an allemande by Henri Dumont. 45

Chamber music from Froberger’s day

Lassus: Bonjour mon coeur

Hailing from Strasbourg, Le Parlement de Musique sheds light on a particular musical tradition from its own region. Since ancient times the Alsace has acted as a transitional zone on the crossroad of the routes linking the Habsburg Empire, Germany, France and Italy. This also holds true for the two Strasbourg manuscripts that provide the starting point for this concert, in which, in which solo keyboard works by Froberger are juxtaposed with the exceptionally international chamber music of Krieger, Rosenmüller, Böddecker and Schmelzer.

Lassus was exceptionally versatile within the secular chanson genre. His emotional and musical palette of colours is inexhaustible, whether expressing humour, melancholy or the joys and sorrows of love. This is evident in his translation of Bonjour mon coeur, a refined love poem by Ronsard, into an equally captivating musical equivalent. The four singers of Capilla Flamenca refer to this aspect of Lassus’s oeuvre as cabaret, but of the most alluring variety. Supported by lute, flute and gambas, they also present instrumental arrangements of the vocal originals. 46

B’Rock and viola player Dmitry Sinkovsky demonstrate – on Baroque instruments – how 20th-century composers found their inspiration in the old masters. Thus, alongside the ‘real works’ by Muffat and Dowland we also hear Benjamin Britten’s cycle based on Dowland’s Lachrimae or Seven Tears composed in 1604. In the subsequent variations Britten used fragments of Dowland’s melodies, which only appear in their complete form at the end of the cycle. The dark tones of the viola dominate here, as is the case in the Trauermusik composed by Paul Hindemith in 1936 on the occasion of the death of the English King George V.

Vivaldi: La Senna festeggiante

Ossuaires: a cinema concert

Vivaldi’s serenata La Senna festeggiante (The Seine Rejoicing) is a tribute to the French King Louis XV. It contains many French elements – but perhaps it above all reveals how Vivaldi viewed the French style. The libretto is built around three characters and is somewhat static; however, this in no way spoils the pleasure: every page of the music displays the rich inventiveness so typical of Vivaldi. It is the ideal work for Fabio Bonizzoni’s energetic chamber orchestra, bolstered by festive winds for the occasion.

The multitalented Björn Schmelzer transforms the Dom into a cinema, with live polyphony performed by his musicians resounding beneath its vaulted arches. The film, a contemporary road movie under his own direction featuring the choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker in a leading role, was inspired by the unique sketchbook created by the 13th-century architect Villard de Honnecourt while travelling throughout medieval Europe on a cathedral tour. The office for Saint Elizabeth of Hungary provides the soundtrack for Schmelzer’s ironic exploration of the film genre.

Daedalus / Roberto Festa

harpsichord

Lassus: Oracula

Keyboard giant Pierre Hantaï is wellknown to Utrecht audiences, and rightly so: this former Leonhardt student is one of the most fascinating and original harpsichordist on the current scene. In this midnight recital he places Froberger – including his suites XVIII and XIX – in perspective, performing him alongside Bach’s Lautenwerk suite and Handel’s Sarabande in D minor. He also makes an excursion over the Channel, with William Byrd’s impressive series of variations The Woods so wilde.

The nine singers of Daedalus tackle one of Lassus’s most mysterious cycles: the Prophetiae Sibyllarum. Lassus experiments freely with expressive text settings and pronounced chromaticism. It might seem like music for the initiated, however this powerful repertoire is so compelling that it totally captivates 21st-century audiences. The Lassus authority Roberto Festa opens the concert with the equally colourful Lectiones Sacrae Novem from 1582. 49

1713: The Treaty of Utrecht

Rachel Farr The Treaty of Utrecht is little known in the Netherlands, yet in many schools abroad 1713 is one of the most significant dates taught in history class. This is not without reason: the Treaty of Utrecht ended centuries-long religious disputes and redrew the map of Europe. But what was it actually all about and what was really at stake? Renger de Bruin, a historian and curator of the exhibition In Vredesnaam (For Peace’s Sake) which will run at the Central Museum until 22 September, fills us in on the facts during a lively presentation.

The Flemish harpsichordist David Van Bouwel focuses on Froberger’s Italian-inspired works and juxtaposes these with the highly chromatic music of Michelangelo Rossi. In this way we hear two Frescobaldi students side by side: there can be no doubt that Rossi served as a source of inspiration for Froberger.

Lassus & De Monte: ein Leben in der Fremde

Emma Kirkby & Jakob Lindberg

Most Renaissance composers led a turbulent life of constant travel. Orlandus Lassus and Philippus de Monte were no exception. Both composers were born in Northern Europe, travelled throughout Europe and subsequently settled down for a long period; the former in Munich and the latter in Vienna and Prague. The Austrian Renaissance collective Cinquecento makes its Utrecht debut with a combination of de Monte’s six-voice Missa Ultimi miei Sospiri, a parody mass to a madrigal by Verdelot, and motets and Magnificat settings by Lassus.

In darkness let me dwell

The grand dame of early music will finally visit Utrecht again. Emma Kirkby and lutenist Jakob Lindberg present this mid-night concert as a journey through Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. The darkness, representing loneliness but also a need for silence and contemplation, serves as a guide in a recital that takes us from Moulinié, via D’India, Coprario and Ferbosco, to Buxtehude and Schimmelpfenninck. 57

Smith is convinced that the music of the late Renaissance is fundamentally concerned with textual expression, with musical colour and ornamentation employed to reinforce the desired expression. In her lecture she elaborates on the principles underlying the concert that she will later present on that day.

Froberger studied with the organist of St. Peter’s Girolamo Frescobaldi in Rome. The clarity and flexibility of Frescobaldi’s keyboard idiom appealed to him: the typically polyphonic structures, his virtuosity and inventiveness, his uninhibited pursuit of a given musical idea. Jean-Marc Aymes has recorded Frescobaldi’s entire keyboard oeuvre and he approaches Froberger from the perspective of his teacher. In doing so, he seeks out explicit references and corresponding elements.

Lassus: Sacrae Cantiones (1562)

Danscompagnie Les Corps Éloquents / Hubert Hazebroucq Utrecht Festival Baroque Dance Band / Jed Wentz

Les Corps Éloquents has created a programme with texts and historical dances associated with the War of the Spanish Succession and the treaty that was ultimately concluded. Some of the most colourful personages of the period appear on stage.

Music should resemble a good oration: it must move the listener, otherwise it has no effect. In order to achieve this the music must be well-constructed, but above all the performer needs to have mastered the technique of declamation and to possess the requisite elegance and power of persuasion. Anne Smith, a teacher at the Schola Cantorum in Basel and specialist in 16th-century performance practice, coaches five of her best students performing motets from Lassus’s compilation Sacrae Cantiones. Young talent meets cutting-edge research in concert.

Stile Antico Lassus & Gombert: Principes musicorum

The title of Campra’s L’Europa galante possibly enjoys greater renown than the superb music itself; however, Skip Sempé and his fellow performers will change all of this. Premièred in 1697 under the direction of Marin Marais, L’Europa galante is the first opéra-ballet in which the various scènes share a single unifying theme. Thus, we will be presented with amorous scenes from four different countries: France, Spain, Italy and Turkey. These provide the ingredients for an imaginary European journey, in this case one with a French flavour.

Like so many of the best 16th-century Flemish musicians, Gombert obtained a position at the prestigious Capilla Flamenca of Emperor Charles. He travelled throughout Europe in the Emperor’s wake. The younger Lassus ended up in Italy; he was one of the few Flemish composers not to be employed by Charles or his son Philip. The leading British ensemble Stile Antico unites these two figures around the Song of Songs, with motets by Lassus and Gombert’s Missa Quam Pulchra es. The concert opens and concludes with two different settings of the Magnificat.

The travels of Santiago de Murcia

Paul Van Nevel unequivocally views Claude Lejeune as the French Lassus. Both composers were closely acquainted with each others’ works and they held each other in high regard. There was one marked difference: Lejeune found a secure niche working for the European Hugenots, where he ultimately developed into the musical figurehead of the French Reformation. This was also a determining factor regarding his choice of repertoire. The supreme all-rounder Lassus is surpassed by Lejeune in two genres: the chanson, which Lejeune approached with unprecedented freshness and, naturally, the psalm setting.

Santiago de Murcia was guitar teacher to the Spanish Queen Maria Luisa, who was married to Louis XIV’s grandson, who became king after the Treaty of Utrecht. It has long been thought that De Murcia met Corelli and Scarlatti in Rome prior to departing for the Southern Netherlands and even South America. While these tales remain unverified, it is clear that his oeuvre displays the influence of Spanish, French and Italian music – Corelli, Visée and Corbetta – as well as of popular dances such as the tarantella and fandango. Consequently, his work is a true panorama of European guitar music. 65

Bob van Asperen Froberger: a personal selection

wed 28 aug / 11.30

In his second recital at this year’s Festival, Bob van Asperen brings together several of Froberger’s most personal compositions in a programme suffused with melancholy. We hear the Méditation sur ma mort future, composed in Paris, alongside the celebrated lamento on the death of Ferdinand IV and a programmatic musical depiction of Froberger’s perilous and near fatal crossing of the turbulent Rhine by boat. The programme would be incomplete without the superb tombeau that he dedicated to his friend the lute composer Blancrocher, who died in 1652: this is perhaps Froberger’s best known composition.

Ciconia: music and politics in the late

The Brabant Ensemble / Stephen Rice

Middle Ages

Lassus & de Rore: sacred music

At the Council of Constance (14141418), which was intended to bring an end to the schism dividing the Catholic Church with no less than three rival popes, reference was made to multiple-voiced wind music that sounded ‘as one is accustomed to singing’. Apparently music and politics make good bedfellows. Taking this singular fact as their point of departure the four alta capella wind players comprising Les Haulz et les Bas have devised a programme featuring music by Dufay, Ciconia, Busnois and Dunstaple and concluding with Mille Regretz, the song of Emperor Charles V.

Both Lassus and Cipriano de Rore, seventeen years his senior, bore the nickname of Il divino. This was not so unusual, considering that it was in the publishers’ interests to extol ‘their’ composers’ virtues. However, theoreticians and experts also shared their opinion. These days De Rore is less well known; however, he also made a crucial contribution – for instance with his Missa super Doulce mémoire selected by the British singers of The Brabant Ensemble – towards achieving a closer intertwining of text and music in the sixteenth century, thus preparing the way for the ensuing Baroque period.

A musical walk through the museum

The late 16th century saw the eventual demise of a polyphonic tradition that had existed for almost 250 years. In Italy a new expressive style arose that was to set the tone in the Baroque period. The nine singers and five instrumentalists of Currende pay tribute to the last generation of polyphonists in Germany and Austria, performing masterly music by Lassus, Le Febure, Utendal and Hassler. They were primarily active in the field of pure polyphony; however, they too embarked upon the new path of greater expressivity and direct emotional expression.

This is an experience experiment: on three Festival nights you can take a special tour with music through the exhibition In Vredesnaam [For Peace’s Sake] in the Centraal Museum. Four musicians are your guide, and their music illustrates and comments on the paintings and objects. This way, viewing art will be an auditory experience as well, and vise versa.

Froberger’s motets in context

Jan Van Elsacker & Thor-Harald Johnsen

In 1649 the Elector of Dresden organised a musical duel between his organist Matthias Weckmann and the Emperor’s emissary Froberger. This was to result in a lifelong friendship between the two musicians. This concert programme is said to have been performed at one of Weckmann’s Abendmusicken in Hamburg, featuring Venetian and Viennese music by Rosenmüller and Bertali. The core works are Froberger’s only two surviving vocal compositions: Alleluia Absorpta est mors and Apparuerunt apostolis, two motets that display a striking affinity with the Venetian concertante style.

The library of Constantijn Huygens

As a child Constantijn Huygens once performed with Sweelinck in a house concert. Much later he met Froberger as a diplomat and heard Claudio Monteverdi performing in Venice. The tenor Jan Van Elsacker and lutenist ThorHarald Johnsen browse through music that certainly would have been part of Huygens’s collection: Boësset, Lanier, Foscarini, Pesenti and, naturally, airs by Huygens himself. Enjoy an intimate evening of song and lute music in the footsteps of the celebrated Dutch 17thcentury cosmopolitan.

Couperin, Froberger, Frescobaldi on the carillon

Laurent Stewart Froberger & Louis Couperin on harpsichord

The Kampen carillonneur Jasper Stam plays works by three of the great Baroque keyboard composers: Couperin, Frescobaldi and, naturally, the Festival composer Froberger. Both Louis Couperin and Froberger wrote aTombeau sur la mort de Monsieur Blancheroche to commemorate the death of Charles Fleury, Sieur de Blancrocher. He was one of the greatest lutenists of his time and died suddenly after falling down a flight of stairs.

Every note is pure poetry under the fingers of the French harpsichordist Laurent Stewart. His secret is difficult to divine, however, it is clear that Stewart combines a flawless sense of style with a touch that is refined and yet masculine. These are exactly the qualities needed to unlock the musical universe of Froberger and his Parisian friend and kindred spirit Louis Couperin. 77

Str igg io’s M issa s o pra Ecco si b ea to gio rno

forty-part masterpiece Traditionally Florence was the cultural centre of Italy, even so dominant that the Florentine dialect of its great poets Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio became the national language of the whole peninsula. With their almost infinite wealth the city and its Medici princes could afford anything in the area of art and music. Rulers of all times had always used culture to emphasize how viable was their (little) empire was. In the Florence cathedral, Brunelleschi’s giant dome from 1436 is in that respect of the same importance as the equally impressive multi-choral music that sounded underneath it. From 1559, Alessandro Striggio (ca. 1536-1592) contributed his bit to the grandeur of Florence. For the Medici court he created numerous large-scale choral works. The masterpiece in his oeuvre is the forty-part Missa sopra Ecco si beato giorno.

Succession Wars and the Treaty of Utrecht

Hopkinson Smith Dowland’s Europe

The Treaty of Utrecht determined the successor to the Spanish throne, thus restoring European equilibrium at long last.These were turbulent times for many Spanish composers. For instance, Sebastián Durón and Francisco Walls would have preferred to see Austria claim the throne, so when Louis XIV’s grandson came to power they experienced hard times. Others, such as José de Torres, Antonio Literes and the much younger José de Nebra went on to enjoy a successful career under the Bourbons.

The master lutenist Hopkinson Smith devotes his midnight concert to the British lute composer John Dowland. He places him in an international context by means of three lute publications that appeared within the space of two years: Varietie of Lute Lessons, the most important printed source of Dowland’s music (London, 1610), Robert Ballard’s Premier Livre de Tablature (Paris, 1611) and Kapsberger’s Libro Primo d’Intavolatura de Lauto (Rome,1611).

Wilbert Berendsen

Melodic instruments had no individual place within the Renaissance musical culture: music for solo instruments did not exist. However, there was one development in the 16th century that pointed to the future: the improvisation of virtuosic diminutions (ornamentations) on the melody line of a multiplevoiced work. Clarck (flutes) and O’Dette (lute) investigate this movement towards instrumental emancipation by means of popular works from Italy, France and England: from Anchor che col partire, via Doulce Memoire to Dowland’s Pavan Lachrimae.

Carillon fringe

Wilbert Berendsen is cantor-organist of the Grote Kerk or Martinikerk in Doesburg. He has been studying the carillon with Frans Haagen at the Utrecht School of the Arts since 2012. In this carillon fringe he performs works by Lasceux, Telemann and Froberger, as well as by Nicolas Vallet, the composer who assumes a major role in the Lute Festival held during the Utrecht Early Music Festival. 87

Three contemporaries of Ciconia

Lassus: Missa Surge propera

The Dutch recorder player and medieval specialist Kees Boeke brings the singers Carlos Mena and Julia von Landsberg to Utrecht for a musical survey of Johannes Ciconia’s times. He places the main spotlight on Ciconia’s Italian colleagues: Magister Dominus Paulus Abbas de Fiorentia, Magister Frater Bartolinus de Padua and Magister Frater Andreas Organista de Florentia. A true feast for the connoisseur.

The six-voice Missa Surge propera follows the principle of parody or imitation, in which the composer further elaborates on material taken from other compositions – a motet in this case. Concerto Italiano impressed with their revolutionary interpretations of Monteverdi-madrigals, but they also excel in the earlier, polyphonic style with their dynamic and text-driven approach. 89

Jordi Savall has created a tailor-made programme for the Early Music Festival, for the occasion of the 3rd centenary of the Treaty of Utrecht. The soloists, choir and orchestra are poised to tell a musical tale of war and peace in Baroque Europe. One hundred and fifty years of drastic events occurring in and beyond continental Europe provide the unifying theme: the Union of Utrecht against the Spanish Crown, the defeat

With works by composers such as Gesualdo, de Victoria, Gabrieli, Lawes, Cabanilles, Sweelinck, Charpentier, Lully, Fux, Bach and Händel alongside Jewish, Ottoman, Hungarian and Polish music, this will be an evening concert to remember, with peace as its dominant theme.

Lassus: Missa Super Dixit Joseph

Listen to Art Many of Lassus’ sixty-six masses are inspired by existing polyphonic compositions such as motets, chansons and madrigals from other Franco-Flemish and Italian composers. For his Missa super Dixit Joseph (1607) Lassus however used his own six-part motet Dixit Joseph undecim fratribus from 1564. The rhetorical elements which are so characteristic for his later works are present. Lassus divided his six voices into two ‘choirs’, who, with sharp contrasts in tessitura, ‘battle’ with each other. Perfect for Paolo Da Col and his Odhecaton.

A musical walk through the museum

This is an experience experiment: on three Festival nights you can take a special tour with music through the exhibition In Vredesnaam [For Peace’s Sake] in the Centraal Museum. Four musicians are your guide, and their music illustrates and comments on the paintings and objects. This way, viewing art will be an auditory experience as well, and vise versa.

Eugène Ferré, luit French lute music in the early seventeenth century

When Frenchman Nicolas Vallet settled in Amsterdam, he quickly got to know the local musical scene: he heard Sweelinck play in the Oude kerk, as well as music by expatriate English composers. Vallet was very open-minded, and influences from all over Europe can be heard in his compositions. But above all, we meet, through his music, an unusual artistic personality. This is the rich legacy that Eugène Ferré wants to promote. 93

He may well have met the celebrated lutenists Germain Pinel and Denis Gaultier there as well. We also know that Huygens corresponded with Froberger, who was in turn a friend of the famed Parisian lutenist Monsieur de Blancrocher.

time of Constantijn Huygens

Ridder Florian is a new performance by Frank Groothof based on Marjet Huiberts’s popular book. It is a wonderful opportunity for toddlers, parents and grandparents alike to experience a music theatre adventure. In collaboration with the papercut artist José Vingerling, who brings Florian’s adventures to life on the backdrop using shadow play, the children will be challenged to actively experience the magic that each person has inside. The tale will be accompanied by Italian early music played on the viola da gamba, theorbo and Baroque guitar. After the performance there will be opportunity to meet the performers.

Fred Jacobs reconstructs a unique period of lute history in his recital. Constantijn Huygens is known to have been an extraordinarily talented lutenist and composer for the lute. He travelled throughout Europe and became acquainted with the eminent musicians of his day. He counted Du Faut among his friends and corresponded with Froberger. Huygens was thus completely in touch with the latest musical developments and trends. Since few of Huygens’s works have survived to the present day, this programme features works by composers who served as his major models – Du Faut, Pinel and Gaultier. 98

The Portuguese harpsichordist and conductor Jalôto has become a regular guest at the Festival: in past years he made his mark in the (Fabulous) Fringe. Now he takes his place within the Festival’s main programme, presenting a composition specially composed and performed for the occasion of the Treaty of Utrecht in Paris in 1715. The composer Thomas-Louis Bourgeois, born in Belgium and for some time theatre director in The Hague, wrote an opéra-ballet with French and Italian elements in the transitional style between Lully and Rameau.

Ciconia: Musicus famosissimus

Comprising three singers, flute, lute, medieval fiddle and clavisimbalum, La Morra pays homage to Ciconia, the first great oltremontano or northerner in Italy. We hear secular music to Italian and French texts and instrumental music from the Codex Faenza. While Ciconia was a master of both sacred and secular genres, it is above all in the latter that his extraordinary talent with regard to absorbing and transforming influences is displayed. He effortlessly combined the Northern European Ars Nova and Ars Subtilior with the purely Italian style.

Lassus’s penitential psalms, Pärt, Schnittke

Only one violin sonata by Georg Muffat is known to us today, but what a splendid work it is! The affects follow each other in quick succession, sometimes with daring modulations. The Dutch violinist Lidewij van der Voort, the former leader of Holland Baroque Society, introduces the new chamber music ensemble that she has founded together with David Van Bouwel. The central focus lies on the 17th century – Muffat, Lully, Corelli and Biber – with all the indispensible elements of their times: fantasy, rich emotional contrasts and uncompromising music making at the highest level.

The Latvian Radio Choir is regularly referred to as the world’s top chamber choir. This concert will allow us to judge for ourselves. The programme is completely based on the theme of atonement, with Lassus’s penitential psalms I and VI as the point of departure. The singers always complement their programmes with contemporary repertoire, seamlessly switching between styles and astonishing their audiences. The concert opens and concludes with music by Arvo Pärt: Memento mori and Kanon Pokajanen. 100

Anthony Bailes Lute music in the Netherlands

Nicolaes Vallet’s lute – openhearted

Anthony Bailes is a fervent advocate of Dutch lute music. In his view, all the elements that make English music so appealing are also to be found in Dutch 17th-century music, with as added bonus the welcome extension of the repertoire with traditional Dutch and Flemish melodies. The richness of the repertoire can be partially explained by the flood of religious refugees coming from France and Southern Netherlands. The tolerant climate of the north, its blooming economy and flourishing artistic life gave lutenists such as Joachim van den Hove and Nicolas Vallet good reason to settle down here.

and blithe

Nicolas Vallet fled France, where Louis XIV had repealed the Edict of Nantes, resulting in an intolerable situation for Protestants. Vallet came to Amsterdam, where he established a dance school and published four lute books. His style displays the subtlety of the early 17th-century French lute style, but he also made psalm settings and even paid homage to his new homeland with variations on Onder de Lindengroene. With three singers and four lutes Willem Mook pays tribute to Vallet and those who inspired him. 108

Micrologus / Patrizia Bovi

Daniel Reuss has put together a programme chiefly comprising fiveand six-voice settings of his favourite composer Lassus. Regarding his selection of late motets, death and mortality are the prevailing themes. This comes as no surprise: in his letters Lassus frequently described his unstable state which did not improve with the passing years. In 1574 he wrote: ‘Never in my entire life could I experience such a melancholic state or such loneliness as now, unless I were to get drunk day and night.’ However, Lassus was naturally capable of sublimating his state of mind in order to create unforgettable music.

Ciconia, Landi, Zacara da Teramo

While we cannot know for certain whether Ciconia ever lived and worked in the Papal city of Rome, this would definitely explain the mutual influence that he and the Roman composer Antonio Zachara da Teramo exerted upon each other. The singer and scholar Patrizia Bovi discusses the relationship between the two and also presents ballades by Landini. The vocalinstrumental ensemble Micrologus has a reputation for giving captivating performances. 109

How did the average person in the Netherlands experience the turbulent years of the early 18th century? The compilation of songs entitled De Gekroonde Utrechtze Vreede (Amsterdam 1718) gives us some insight into this, with its songs about the sea and field battles of the War of the Spanish Succession, marches for the international generals and jubilant songs celebrating the Treaty. There were also diverting songs, such as the song of the Utrecht whores who were overworked as a result of the many visitors connected with the Utrecht negotiations.

Lassus: I Trionfi

In literary history Petrarch is chiefly known as the author of the Canzoniere, the cycle of 366 poems inspired by his platonic adoration of the legendary Laura. However, until into the 17th century his cycle I Trionfi was by far the most popular work in the Italian language, almost rivalling the fame of Dante’s Divina Commedia. Orlandus Lassus only set fragments of Petrarch’s text to music in his later years. As
