Viva Vivaldi!
Today, as in his time, the fame of Antonio Vivaldi, one of the most celebrated composers of the Italian baroque, goes far beyond his original audience.

 

Born in Venice on 4 March 1678, he was ordained in 1703.  This fact, together with his wild red hair (visible in some famous portraits, with his sharply-etched profile) led to the nickname of Prete rosso (Red priest), a designation referring also to the extremely lively, contagious and highly virtuosic music that Vivaldi always wrote.  From 1703 to 1740 he was violin and composition teacher, and then maestro dei concerti and maestro di coro at the Seminario musicale dell’Ospedale della Pietà, one of the four famous Venetian music schools for orphan, illegitimate or abandoned girls.  Vivaldi left Venice between 1718 and 1722 to direct the chapel of the Prince of Hasse-Darmstadt in Mantua, and in 1723 and 1724 in order to put on operas in Rome (where he played for the Pope).  He also visited many cities in Italy and abroad (especially in Germany and the Netherlands), whether as violinist, or as impresario for his own operas (recruiting singers, directing rehearsals, and counting the money).  His instrumental works were now famous everywhere, especially the celebrated Four Seasons and the superb Estro Armonico.  In 1740, Vivaldi left Venice and travelled to Vienna, where he died on 28 July of the following year, poor and alone, ruined – it is said – by his excessive prodigality.  His fame, on the other hand, was destined to be eternal.

 

The fascination of the works of Antonio Vivaldi has led musicians of all periods to use them as living material and inspiration.  As witnesses to this stand the innumerable transcriptions made during his lifetime, which already showed the interest his works caused throughout Europe.

 

The present concert is a collection of Vivaldian pearls, presented as transcriptions, whether of instrumental works – the concertos from the Estro Armonico – or of sacred vocal works.  The practice of transcription is amply documented also in Italy throughout the 18th century.  The idea of transcribing for organ the instrumental accompaniment of the beautiful works in this programme arose from the musicological work carried out in musical archives, which demonstrated a huge production of sacred music, written in score for one or more voices and concertato organ, which nevertheless allowed, in rapid fashion, the instrumentation of the same work for a larger ensemble.  The application of the same technique in inverse fashion so certain works of the Italian Settecento provides some extraordinary results!

Church and Convent of Santa Clara

 

The church of Santa Clara had acquired a small positive organ with Italo-Iberian characteristics in the 18th century. With the extinction of the religious orders and the subsequent sale of the congregation’s goods, the organ was also put up for sale, being purchased by a certain Romano de Santa Clara, who kept it in a wing of the dissolved convent. In 1921 he gave it to the fraternity of Santa Clara, so that it could once more be put to service in the worship of the church. In October 1923 the task of ‘repairing’ it was put in the hands of the musicians César R. Nascimento and Guilherme H. Lino, who completed the work in November of the following year.

 

Unused and badly damaged for many years, this instrument of considerable historical value underwent a major restoration by Dinarte Machado on the basis of proper criteria drawn from a knowledge of the organ-building practices of the instrument’s period. This was completed in 2001. The poor state of the instrument, completely disfigured, required a rigorous, in-depth study on which to base this restoration. Thus we see how from the outset Dinarte Machado went to considerable pains in the course of this restoration.
