These two principles—grandiose rhetoric and the minimum of conciseness—reach out in oppposite directions, finally to meet in the Fiori musicali. The chant materials are treated as long-note cantus firmi in one or more voices, paraphrased, or divided up to provide subjects for imitative treatment or tripla variations.

Indeed, this sensation of timeless contemplation is one of the aims of the Elevation, the musical creation of a kind of eternal present. The central achievement of this volume is its repertory of toccatas, which attain an unprecedented grandeur, richness, and expressiveness of declamation, now channeled and organized by clear and yet subtle structural principles. The organ-versets for vespers—hymn- and Magnificat-verses—are a new genre for Frescobaldi only in their appearance in print.

The dedicatee to whom these observations were addressed was an amateur harpsichordist of professional caliber, and the bulk of the volume consists of genres appropriate to the harpsichord: Chandos Records is one of the world’s premier classical music record companies, best known for its ground breaking search for neglected musical gems.

Rising scale figures are an easily perceived unifying device and are variously employed, ascending regularly through the chordal texture mm. Its rhythmic patterns, especially the Lombard rhythm, are consistent over relatively long spans.

Frescobaldi not only transcribed the originals from part-books but even noted mistakes such as parallel fifths—sixteen times in the Palestrina cycle but only four in the Victoria. In Toccate II Frescobaldi set four hymns: Beyond this rhythmic level we enter an area where the unexpected is more important than the sequential and the expected, or at any rate where the unexpected can be explained only after its appearance.


Canzona V is in a succession of triple mensurations with interpolated C measures: The sections that follow are relatively short and are set off by frequent minim chords, with abrupt contrasts of textures and a variety of three-against-two rhythmic patterns, often linked by reinterpretations of cadences mm.

In both of the sets the identity of the two-measure pattern is rigidly maintained, figuration is conventional, and chromatic interest is rare. However, evidence has come to light suggesting that Frescobaldi approached this genre with unexpected seriousness.

When you purchase a lossless format, we include the MP3 free of charge Please note: The contrast between focused and unfocused sections is an important aspect of the new formal definition in the toccatas. The combination of dance and variation procedures is carried a step further in the two variation-sets, frexcobaldi include dancelike fresscobaldi. The cross-pollination of genres in the Frescobalda variations and the introduction of the Ciaccona and Passacagli from the guitar repertory are unparalleled in the Neapolitan collections.

Mark Sealey – ClassicalNet. The inclusion of variations on the Ciaccona and Passacagli, by contrast, begins a process of creating large musical structures from common and unclearly-defined elements, as opposed to the radical reinterpretation of an existing work of art in the intabulation.

Renowned for its superb sound quality, Chandos has won many prestigious awards for magnifixat natural sound. When Frescobaldi took up these patterns they were still evolving, although the ciaccona had settled on the major mode and had developed a typical rhythmic pattern in triple meter; the passacaglia could be cast either in major or minor. This development is perhaps least apparent in the opening sections of the toccatas, since they were already the most clearly delineated divisions of the ones.

The harmony changes regularly every quarter-note, frequently a chromatic inflection of a more basic change on the half note, and the bass is firmly marked. Girolamo Frescobaldi – Volume 5 Show recording details.

Toccate II defines the currents of the past and the future most sharply in the intabulation and the bass variations respectively.

The ciaccona was originally a lively dance, the passacaglia a ritornello, and both were developed in the musically marginal world of the guitar tablature. The Magnificats on the first and sixth tones have five versets, alternating with even-numbered chant frecobaldi, and the Magnificat on the second tone has six versets, presumably alternating with odd-numbered chant verses.


In the beginning of Toccata IV all four voices are sounding by the second half of the first measure, but the entrance in m. Like any other seventeenth-century Italian organist, he must have improvised their equivalents every working day of his life.

What was a passing ripple on the surface fresclbaldi an earlier toccata is employed here with exaggerated logic to define the cadence:.

In fact, however, the underlying harmonic structures of these works are more direct even that those of the pedal toccatas: February Originally recorded in The second corrente is provided with another feature later adopted by the French, a written-out figural variation or double. In his Choro et organo Venice: Both works thus display a harmonic outline that reaches a high point of intensity—in Toccata V the longest of the pedal-points, in VI an intensification of the longest pedal—from which it moves by a pivot chord to a clear cadence.

Although the figuration of the pedal toccatas is more obviously decorative in its relation to the underlying harmonic structure, which is not merely suggested, as in the harpsichord toccatas, but unequivocally present in every measure, its luxuriance is not random. In Toccata V virtually all of the figuration is derived from or stresses the interval of a fourth, contracted into a chromatic third above the penultimate pedal.

Item added to order. The same technique of reinterpreting harmonically a melodic arrival is employed as a transition from the cadence of the opening section in Toccatas I and II Toccata I, mm. While their rhetoric is obviously high and passionate and the logic of isolated elements is perceptible, there is little initial feeling of overall structure or destination.
