PROGRAM NOTES Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) The enormous body of work left by Vivaldi still boggles the mind: 500 concertos, dozens and dozens of chamber works, sacred pieces and operas. And, no doubt, many dozens more have been lost. Most of the concertos emerged during his 37 years working with the young ladies at the Ospedale della Pietà, one of four famed orphanages for foundlings in Venice (orphaned or deserted boys became apprentices to merchants and tradesmen). When he was ordained as a priest in 1703, Vivaldi was named violin-master at the Pietà, where he provided music lessons and compositions for a select group of talented young instrumentalists and singers, in hopes of improving their future chances of gaining a husband. For years, his charges performed (usually behind a screen for purposes of modesty) at the popular series of Sunday concerts. Though the composer undoubtedly served as soloist in his violin concertos, the more talented students were showcased in his various concertos for flute, oboe, bassoon, mandolin, recorder, trumpet, viola d'amore, cello, etc. Though the violin was his instrument of choice, it's clear that the composer was attracted to the wide range and singing tone of the cello, at that time barely emerging from its subordinate role as a supportive continuo voice. His fondness for the cello is evidenced by the 27 solo concertos and 10 sonatas written for it. (Note: The RV numbering refers to the Ryon-Verzeichnis, the Vivaldi catalog published by Peter Ryom in 1974. Ryom organized the works by genre, not by year of composition.) Overture from Bajazet, RV 703 This three-movement sinfonia opens the opera Bajazet (also known as Il Tamerlano), assembled by Vivaldi in 1735. We can't say he composed the opera, since many of the arias, particularly those sung by the villains Tamerlano, Irene and Andronico, were penned by at least four other composers—a common practice then, known as pasticcio. The gruesome story, also the subject of some 50 operas as well as the influential Elizabethan play by Christopher Marlowe, tells of the fierce battles in the late 14th century between the Tartar tyrant Tamerlano and the Ottoman sultan Bajazet, whose armies fought furiously (Notice the military touch provided by the horns). Cello Concerto in C, RV 400 Cello Concerto in D minor, RV 405 Whoever was the original soloist in these two solo concertos must have certainly known their way around the instrument, since Vivaldi calls for virtuosic playing in the vivid, vivacious outer movements and soulful singing in the central largos. Notice how the composer makes use of the full range of the cello, often sending the soloist scampering way up the neck, particularly in the opening allegro. Observe, as well, those brief, unexpected (intentionally witty?) pauses in the D-minor’s outer movements. Concerto for Two Cellos, RV 531 This is Vivaldi’s only (surviving) double-cello concerto, and, like those for pairs of violins, mandolins, trumpets, etc., the composer calls on the soloists to engage in

spirited dialogue right from the get-go. The two cellos toss off plenty of echo-like phrases that cascade off of each other (something of a Vivaldi trademark!). All that energetic ping-ponging is as fun to watch as it is to hear, though the composer wisely expands the soloists’ ongoing dialogue with question-and-answer ideas and close-harmony passages—the latter heard most effectively in the largo. Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805) A native of Lucca, west of Florence, the Italian cellist and composer Luigi Boccherini was born into a richly talented family of musicians, poets and dancers. His father, a double-bass player, gave the boy lessons on the more conveniently sized cello, and by age 13 Luigi was a respected concert artist. A year later, father and son joined the orchestra of Vienna’s court theater. It didn't take long for the young cellist to begin touring the continent, mostly with violinist Filippo Manfredi, finding particular success in Paris. In 1768, the pair settled in Spain, where Boccherini’s reputation as a composer grew. His compositional life in Madrid centered around the court of the Infante Don Luis, kid brother of King Carlos III. Not all was joy and success, however. He was deeply shaken by the deaths in 1785 of his wife and Don Luis. More tragedy would haunt him in 1803 with the passing of two daughters and, in the following year, by the death of another daughter and his second wife. Professionally, his reputation throughout Europe never flagged. He was named court composer in absentia to Friedrich Wilhelm, an amateur cellist who became Prussian king in 1787. While he received numerous commissions from Portuguese and French patrons, Boccherini remained rooted in Spain, where he lived out his life. Details of his compositional history are difficult to nail down, thanks to the liberal re-numbering of his French publisher Pleyel, but it’s obvious that his output, totaling more than 460 works, emphasizes the cello—including dozens of sonatas, a dozen concertos and, significantly, around 140 string quintets (string quartets with a second cello rather than the more typical second viola). Boccherini is credited with inventing the cello quintet, born after he began teaming up with Don Luis’ resident string quartet. Though composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorák and Brahms would prefer the added viola in their quintets, Franz Schubert utilized Boccherini's two-cello format in the Austrian's glorious C Major Quintet. (As with the Vivaldi catalog, Boccherini’s output has been ordered by genre in the authoritative 1969 publication by musicologist Yves Gérard.) Cello Sonata in C, G.17 Every now and then, another Boccherini cello sonata surfaces—but the number seems to be holding at around 40. Unlike other cello sonatas (by Bach Beethoven, Brahms and many others), Boccherini did not designate the keyboard as accompanying instrument. Instead, his scores are written for "Violoncello e Basso," the latter reference indicating a second cello. Most likely, these were intended for the composer and his father (a doublebassist who was familiar enough with the cello). Though Boccherini did not include a figured bass in his scores,

which would imply a chordal accompaniment, some performances of these sonatas nonetheless feature an added keyboard or guitar. This C Major Sonata offers a nice introduction to the composer’s accessible, sometimes energetic approach to composition, while providing evidence of his prowess on the cello. Particularly attention-grabbing is the brilliant, perpetual-motion final movement. Cello Concerto in E-flat, G. 474 This work, one of 12 youthful cello concertos, shows up as No. 1 in Gérard’s catalog, but is often labeled as No. 5, demonstrating the challenge of accurately numbering Boccherini's huge output. The composer had apparently compiled a partial catalog of his music, but that document was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War. In any case, the dozen concertos offer more proof of Boccherini's performing skills, as the outer movements provide plenty of virtuosic passagework, while the lovely central Largo assai calls for a rich, singing tone, and the concluding Rondo allegro offers opportunities for jaunty bouncing rround the fingerboard, not to mention an extended, showoffy cadenza. Quintet in C, “La musica notturna nelle strade di Madrid,” G. 324 “This piece is absolutely useless, even ridiculous, outside Spain.” Was this a comment from some disgusted music critic? Hardly. This was from Boccherini’s attached note to his publisher. Truth is, he was correct—that is, unless the

Gustav Holst’s


listener is informed about the work’s comings and goings. This quintet was likely written to cheer up the composer’s patron, Don Luis, who’d been banished from Madrid after marrying beneath his station. In this delightful programmatic piece, describing “night music in the streets of Madrid,” the sights and sounds of that far-away city are nostalgically recalled with numerous clever effects. It opens with Madrid’s church bells ringing the Ave Maria, followed by a military drum roll. Next, we hear a minuet representing the scandal reports from the street’s blind beggars, as they play their guitars (cellos are instructed to be placed on the knees and strummed!). Then, the Rosary Prayer, a charming duet for violin and cello, punctuated now and then by a pair of plucked notes. The following Passa Calle (meaning “to pass along the streets,” not to be confused with the Baroque passacaglia) captures the energetic music of lower-class street singers known as Monolos, heard in a Spanishflavored tune of three chords in pizzicato that accompany the viola’s spirited song. Finally, another military drum roll leads to the ritirata, the marching retreat of Madrid’s Military Night Watch. In Boccherini’s note to his publisher, he imagines the listener “sitting next to the window on a summer’s night in a Madrid flat and that the band can be heard in the far-off distance.” As the musicians approach, the volume increases, then fades away as the contingent continues its nightly rounds. —Marc Shulgold

VENICE BAROQUE ORCHESTRA Founded in 1997 by Baroque scholar and harpsichordist Andrea Marcon, the Venice Baroque Orchestra is recognized as one of the premier ensembles devoted to period instrument performance. The Orchestra has received wide critical acclaim for its concert and opera performances throughout North America, Europe, South America, Japan and Korea. Highlights of the current season have included a nine-city United States tour of the orchestra’s Baroque concertos program featuring internal soloists; the seasonal opening concert of Rome’s Auditorium Parco della Musica chamber hall, and performances across Europe with countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, violinist Giuliano Carmignola, mezzo-soprano Romina Basso and cellist Gautier Capuçon. Highlights of the 2011/12 season included Vivaldi’s Stabat Mater and Gloria at the Bruge Concertgebouw; concerts in Lisbon and France with soprano Patricia Petibon; performances of their pasticcio of Metastasio’s L’Olimpiade in London, Dijon, Brussels, Paris, Athens and Siena; performances with Mr. Carmignola at the Enescu Festival, and the Gstaad and Dubrovnik festivals; in Italy and Russia with Ms. Basso, with recorder player Anna Fusek in the Czech Republic, and with Simone Kermes in Poland, as well as performances of Baroque multi-instrument concertos throughout Europe. The 2010/11 season featured a 28-city tour of the United States with violinist Robert McDuffie in premiere performances of Philip Glass’s new violin concerto, The American Four Seasons; a tour of Japan and Korea with Mr. Carmignola; concerts in Austria and France with soprano Patricia Petibon; Vivaldi’s La senna festeggiante at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw; Baroque cello concertos with Mr. Capuçon in Germany; Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater at Théâtre des Champs Elysées with soprano Veronica Cangemi and contralto Sara Mingardo; a U. S. tour with Mr. Carmignola and violinist Giulio Plotino; Vivaldi arias with Ms. Basso in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Monteverdi’s Vespers in Leipzig, and a tour of festivals in Austria, Germany and Switzerland featuring mezzosoprano Magdalena Kožená.

Committed to the rediscovery of 17th- and 18th-century masterpieces, the VBO has given the modern-day premieres of Francesco Cavalli’s L’Orione, Vivaldi’s Atenaide, Andromeda liberata, Benedetto Marcello’s La morte d’Adone and Il trionfo della poesia e della musica, and Boccherini’s La Clementina. With Teatro La Fenice in Venice, the orchestra has staged Cimarosa’s L’Olimpiade, Handel’s Siroe, and Galuppi’s L’Olimpiade, and reprised Siroe at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York in its first full staging in the United States. The orchestra’s recent disc for Naïve, a pasticcio of Metastasio’s L’Olimpiade featuring the recording premieres of many 18th-century opera arias, was released in 2012 and awarded Choc du Monde de la Musique. The VBO has an extensive discography with Sony and Deutsche Grammophon. Their world premiere recording of Andromeda liberata for DG was followed by recordings of violin concertos with Mr. Carmignola; Vivaldi sinfonias and concertos for strings; Vivaldi motets and arias with soprano Simone Kermes, two discs with Ms. Kožená—Handel arias and Vivaldi arias; Vivaldi violin concertos with Viktoria Mullova and Mr. Carmignola, and Italian arias with Ms. Petibon. The orchestra’s earlier discography on Sony with Mr. Carmignola includes The Four Seasons, previously unrecorded Vivaldi concertos, and a collection of Bach arias featuring Angelika Kirchschlager. The orchestra has been honored with the Diapason d’Or, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Echo Award and the Edison Award. In addition to frequent radio broadcast of their concerts, the orchestra has been seen worldwide through several television specials, including films by the BBC, ARTE, NTR (Netherlands), and NHK.
