Σαν σήμερα, 22 Απριλίου 1658 γεννήθκε στη Μπολόνια ο αξιοσημείωτος συνθέτης Τζουζέπε Τορέλι. Θεωρείται ένας από τους γεννήτορες της φόρμας του κονσέρτου – για την ακρίβεια το πρώτο από τα δυο έργα που ακούμε είναι η πρώτη εμφάνιση της φόρμας του κονσέρτου γκρόσο, που υιοθέτησαν στη συνέχεια συνθέτες όπως οι Κορέλι, Χέντελ. Το ακούμε από τους Hutchins Consort.

Το δεύτερο έργο είναι η Σονάτα G. 5 για τρομπέτα. Από τους European Soloists, διεύθυνση Nicol Matt. Τρομπέτα ο Thomas Hammes.


On this date, April 22, 1658, the remarkable composer Giuseppe Torelli was born in Bologna. He is considered one of the genitors of the concert form – in fact the first of the two works we hear, Concerto op. 8 is the first appearance of the concerto grosso, adopted by composers such as Corelli and Handel. We hear it from Hutchins Consort.

The second is Sonata G. 5 for Trumpet. By European Soloists, cond. by Nicol Matt. Trumpet Thomas Hammes.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
