Comment on Monteverdi’s Setting of Petrarch’s Sonnet Hor che’l ciel e la terra by Norbert E. Fuchs http://blog.magnificatbaroque.com/2011/08/07/monteverdis-setting-of-petrarchs-sonnet-hor-chel-ciel-e-la-terra/comment-page-1/#comment-3024 Sat, 25 Jul 2015 13:07:23 +0000 http://blog.magnificatbaroque.com/?p=2462#comment-3024 Correction:

Veglio, penso, ardo, piango

is incorrectly translated as

I see, I think, I burn, I weep

while “veglio” correctly means “I wake” or “I awake” or “I stay awake”.

Comment on The Most Excellent Iacomo Carissimi by Denise http://blog.magnificatbaroque.com/2011/11/01/the-most-excellent-iacomo-carissimi/comment-page-1/#comment-1749 Sun, 13 Nov 2011 05:35:07 +0000 http://blog.magnificatbaroque.com/?p=2606#comment-1749 What amazing music! I just got back from listening to your Berkeley performance at St Mark’s Episcopal. Wow…

Thank you, also, for often selecting pieces like this with profound spiritual overtones. I was moved and nourished by the words and their meaning as well as the music…

Thanks!

Comment on 2010 Berkeley Festival Featured in NPR Documentary by Alan Curtis http://blog.magnificatbaroque.com/2011/08/10/2010-berkeley-festival-featured-in-npr-documentary/comment-page-1/#comment-1657 Tue, 30 Aug 2011 20:11:26 +0000 http://blog.magnificatbaroque.com/?p=2496#comment-1657 Dear Warren,
Surprised that, usually so careful with your documentation, you use (as, alas, so many do) that portrait of a famous comedian (can’t remember his name at the moment) as if he were Monteverdi. The only authentic oil portraits I know of are the Strozzi copy in Innsbruck and the (perhaps original?) better one in Vienna, Musikfreunde. Why not use one of them? I was with Robbins Landon in Venice in I think 1965 when he decided to pass that painting off as Monteverdi and put it on BBC TV. Tried to talk him out of it, but had no idea the deception would have such an unfortunately long-lasting effect! All best, Alan (in Lonigo, as usual)

I would like to be placed on your list.

With these theatrical works – ranging from pastoral airs to lunatic raving, we returned to the entertaining world of the Le Malade Imaginaire. John’s informative program notes for these concerts can be read here. […]
