Diana Damrau's studio recording of "Queen of the Night" (Hell's revenge boils in my heart) from Mozart's Magic Flute.



The same aria during an actual performance of the work demonstrates that, unlike most operatic singers, she is a dab hand at acting too.

Three Movements from Petrushka. As the title suggests, music lifted from Stravinsky's ballet, Petrushka. Although the composer was an accomplished pianist, his skill level was not (by his own admission) up to playing this piece.

Excuse me, Händel, but... Purcell. :awesome:

Purcell - "Strike the Viol, Touch the Lute" from Come Ye Sons of Art (Birthday Ode for Queen Mary). Tim Mead, Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien.

    Strike the Viol, touch the Lute;
    Wake the Harp, inspire the Flute:

    Sing your Patronesse's Praise,
    Sing, in cheerful and harmonious Lays.

Their take on one of my faves:
Purcell - curtain tune from Timon of Athens, Z.632. Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien.

It's the final allegro from the 2nd in a set of 6 flute concertos he published when the transverse flute was hitting its stride. More than likely one of the many recorder pieces he adapted for the new instrument.

Vivaldi - flute concerto in g, op10 no2 "La Notte" ("The Night"), 6th movement. François Lazarevitch, Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien.

The heart likes what it likes.

I've always loved this piece, but more the idea of it than any specific rendition. I think I've finally found one that's convincing, though the slow movement's a little rushed. Organ instead of harpsichord in the fast movements was a nice touch.

Vivaldi - cto for 2 cellos in g, RV 531. Ophélie Gaillard, Atsushi Sakai, w/Pulcinella.

I. Allegro


II. Largo


III. Allegro

This riveting performance is unique: a blend of variations on “La Folia” by 3 different composers: Corelli, Scarlatti (A.), and Marais. And I’ve never seen/heard viola da gamba playing like this before. :awesome: Then, in typing this post, it dawned on me: these are the 3 instruments most associated with the respective composers: violin (Corelli), harpsichord (Scarlatti), viola da gamba (Marais). Double :awesome:

I can only assume they’re shifting through time and place, cycling between soloist/accompanist role accordingly. It’s so meta.

Variations on “La Folia”. Ensemble Musica Narrans.

So, yes, the nickname ("La Notte") made me think the other performance was an adaptation from the published flute concerto. But it turns out the original recorder piece was also nicknamed "La Notte" (I should've remembered that). Anyway, an excuse to post another sexy rendition of it:

Vivaldi - chamber cto in g, RV 104, 6th movt. 4 Times Baroque.

An interesting parallel... here's another chamber piece w/recorder, in the same key (note the adjacent index number, RV 103) and an adaptation that went in a different direction. I never see this connection made - but it's obvious when you hear it. (I don't know which came first, but usually it's the smaller chamber piece.)

Vivaldi - chamber concerto in g, RV 103, 1st movt. Marion Verbruggen (recorder), Paul Goodwin (oboe), Dennis Godburn (bassoon).



Vivaldi - concerto for strings & basso continuo in g, RV 156, 1st movt. The English Concert.

There's nothing "period" about the Toronto CO, but Ofra Harnoy has impeccable instincts. The alternate take is grungier & has a playful harpsichord.

Vivaldi - cello cto in a, RV 419, 3rd movt. Ofra Harnoy, Toronto CO.




Vivaldi - cello cto in a, RV 419, 3rd movt. Francesco Galligioni, L'Arte dell'Arco.

Featured in a fundraiser for the group, which is trying to keep their players afloat...

Händel - "Ombra mai fù", from Xerxes. Christopher Lowrey, Voices of Music.


    Ombra mai fù
    di vegetabile,
    cara ed amabile,
    soave più.

    Never was the shade
    from any plant
    more dear, more lovely,
    or so sweet.

Iirc, Xerxes sings this to his favorite tree in his garden, in a moment of loneliness & anxiety over a heavy decision he has to make. Rather poignant imagery, in the context.

A song about the coming of spring... ;)

Vivaldi - "Dell'aura al sussurrar" from Dorilla in Tempe. I Barocchisti.



[Reveal] Spoiler: text
Dell'aura al sussurrar,
Dell'onda al mormorar,
Cantiamo con piacer
Fra il dolce, e bel goder
Della nuova stagion
L'onore, e il vanto.
E sia di primavera
D'ogni gioir foriera
Il nostro canto.

Senti quell'usignolo
Su la nascente fronda,
Come il piacer l'innonda
E qual d'amor favella.
Spiegando lieto il volo
Ei cerca fido il nido
Al bel piacer ch'attende.

E in noi di primavera
D'amor lieta foriera
I voti accende.

Ride il colle, e ride il prato
Fra viole, e gigli, e rose,
E amorose
L'aure spirano d'intorno.
La fedele rondinella
Lieta anch'ella
Per goder fa a noi ritorno.

Quest'è la bella
Stagion novella,
Che dando vita
All'erbe, ai fiori
Ai nostri cuori
Spiega l'amor.
Ella gradita
Di nevi, e brine
Dilegua al fine
L'aspro rigor.
