Antonio Vivaldi – The Four Seasons

Published on Apr 23, 2012

Antonio Vivaldi The Four Seasons Full HD (Italian: Le quattro stagioni) is a set of four violin concertos by Antonio Vivaldi Full Concert. Composed in 1723, The Four Seasons is Vivaldi’s best-known work, and is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music. The texture of each concerto is varied, each resembling its respective season. For example, “Winter” is peppered with silvery pizzicato notes from the high strings, calling to mind icy rain, whereas “Summer” evokes a thunderstorm in its final movement, which is why the movement is often dubbed “Storm.”
The concertos were first published in 1725 as part of a set of twelve concerti, Vivaldi’s Op. 8, entitled Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione (The Contest between Harmony and Invention). The first four concertos were designated Le quattro stagioni, each being named after a season. Each one is in three movements, with a slow movement between two faster ones. At the time of writing The Four Seasons, the modern solo form of the concerto had not yet been defined (typically a solo instrument and accompanying orchestra). Vivaldi’s original arrangement for solo violin with string quartet and basso continuo helped to define the form.

His prolific work is considered the pinnacle of Baroque music. He was distinguished for his intellectual depth, technical perfection and artistic beauty, and also for the synthesis of various international styles of his time and of the past and unparalleled extension. Bach is considered the last great master of the art of counterpoint, which is the source of inspiration and influence to later composers and musicians from Mozart through Schoenberg, until today.

 

J.S. Bach French Suite No.5 in G Major BWV 816 Svetlana Ponomareva piano



Extract from Svetlana Ponomareva plays Schnittke / Bach CD
Recorded in 2008 at CBC Studio One in Vancouver yet never played on CBC Radio 2

For those who do not care about musical name dropping and want to listen to a fine and informed articulation of the French Suite No.5

(Finally available for download, “Touching a Mystery” the book on rules of articulation for Baroque Clavier Music:
http://ponomarevapianist.com/news.php… )

This CD commemorates Alfred Schnittke‘s 10th passing anniversary. The selected “Five Aphorisms” written in 1990 and Sonata No. 3 written in 1992 are among his late works for piano solo, rarely performed. Svetlana’s performing of Schnittke solo piano is among the finest.

The CD also focuses on Bach’s music as the result of Svetlana’s serious work based on several in-depth researches by Alexandrov, Teregulov and Nosina from Russia on Baroque music – in particular, about articulation in Bach’s Clavier music and the symbolism of his music. Svetlana chose the Prelude and Fugue BWV 849 from the Well Tempered Clavier book 1 and the French Suite No. 5 BWV 816 to illustrate this research and demonstrate how through the rules of articulation the polyphony is serving a complex dramaturgy that is both true to the epoch -in style- and still quite personal to the performer.

=================================

 
 Jan Dismas Zelenka (baptised Jan Lukáš Zelenka; 16 October 1679 – 23 December 1745),[1] previously also known as Johann Dismas Zelenka, was the most important Czech baroque composer. His music is admired for its harmonic inventiveness and counterpoint.

Jan Dismas Zelenka memorial plaque in Louňovice pod Blaníkem,Czech Republic
Zelenka was born in Louňovice pod Blaníkem, a small market town southeast of Prague, in Bohemia. the eldest of the eight children born to Marie Magdalena (née Hájek) and Jiří Zelenka. The middle name Dismas is probably his confirmation name.[2] His father was a schoolmaster and organist there; nothing more is known with certainty about Zelenka’s early years. He received his musical training at the Jesuit college Clementinum in Prague.[3] His instrument was the violone (or bass viol). His first works, all oratorios, were written in his Prague student days.

Zelenka served Baron Hartig, the imperial governor resident in Prague, before his appointment as violone player in Dresden‘s royal orchestra around 1710. His emigration from Bohemia, for unknown reasons which have been speculated about, was most likely sudden. Some monographs give various personal reasons why he left, but the truth is still unknown. His first opus in Dresden was a Mass, the “Missa Sanctae Caeciliae” (c. 1711).[4]
