2013-2014 Concert Series

San Marco, Venice

I. Venetian Vespers with Laura Heimes, Jennifer Ellis Kampani

and John Taylor Ward

In the last year of his life, 1630, Alessandro Grandi published his Messa, e salmi concertati, a tre voci, which provides music for the mass as well a complete set of psalms for the first Christmas day Vespers service. The music reveals the composer’s confident and mature style; the counterpoint is finely wrought, and Grandi uses ornamentation and chromaticism for effect rather than for display. Grandi worked together with Monteverdi in St. Mark’s from 1617 to 1627, but he has his own individual style, and was one of the most influential and important composers of the early 17th century. In addition to the psalms, our reconstruction of the Vespers will feature virtuoso vocal and instrumental music by Monteverdi, Marini, Buonamente and Uccellini, all printed in Venice.

III. Lamentations of Jeremiah with soprano with Kirsten Blaise

The Lamentations of Jeremiah have held a special place for renaissance and baroque composers since Petrucci’s magnificent collection of 1506, which was one of the first music books published in Europe. In the Latin text, each verse begins with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet: Aleph, Beth, Gimel, Daleth, He, and composers since Petrucci have “illuminated” each letter with impressionistic melismas that echo the decorative arts of the medieval scribes. Two hundred years after Petrucci, Scarlatti continued this tradition in his extraordinary setting of 1708, a commission for the same group of Cavalieri that sponsored Pergolesi’s setting of the Stabat Mater. For this concert we will use a new edition, based on Scarlatti’s original manuscript.
