Antonio Caldara: La passione di Gesù Cristo - Sepolcro két stílus határán: a stile mixto elemei az olasz és német stílus szintézisében
MetadataShow full item record
My dissertation focuses on Antonio Caldara’s (1670—1736) sepolcro passion, La passione di Gesù Cristo (1730). The works of this outstanding composer of the Austro-Italian Baroque era are hardly ever performed in Hungary. My first experience hearing it was a recording from The Europa Galante conducted by Fabio Biondi. Right after the first listening it became clear that I have to make the acquaintance of this work thoroughly; in the first slow part of the two-part introduzione of the oratory the augmented sixth chord occurs three times. In the Baroque era this chord appeares quite rarely, that is why it is one of the most forward looking feature of the composer. The double fugue of the following fast section is completely traditional, it could have been written by Vivaldi, too. The special mixture of the traditional and the modern is an important determinant of Caldara’s work of art.
