The naturalness of the Baroque. Pasquini, La sete di Cristo
Add date: Saturday, 4 April 2015

The 17th century is always marked by a peculiar climate. What will reach a virtuoso level at a later date, here is simply graceful and dynamic; what will be astonishing, here is attractive; what will later be richly adorned with relief in the highest taste, here is still only plastic. Obviously, the tendency to flashiness is also present, but it is counterbalanced by simplicity and unpretentiousness – the qualities of the genuine Baroque style that is opposed to the late Baroque period, which is actually an equivalent of the sleek splendour of Rococo. This genuine 17th-century style was present in the work that was performed in a captivating fashion by Academia Montis Regalis yesterday: Alessandro de Marchi conducted Bernardo Pasquini’s oratorio La sete di Cristo.

Interpreting the Passion. René Jacobs conducts Bach’s St John Passion
Add date: Friday, 3 April 2015

Yesterday René Jacobs surprised us as the conductor of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Johannes-Passion (St John Passion). The version of the Passion presented by the master of the baroque opera was focused on swiftly flowing sounds, putting aside the drama contained in them. We heard a very cohesive and logical, yet at the same time extremely “anti-theatre” interpretation of Bach's masterpiece. The work was performed by the famous orchestra Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and the equally excellent RIAS Kammerchor from Berlin.

Ten songs, seven joys. Hespèrion XXI, Jordi Savall and El Llibre Vermell de Montserrat
Add date: Thursday, 2 April 2015

Jordi Savall is a regular guest of Misteria Paschalia. ‘Regular’ should be understood literally: he is the only artist who performs with his ensembles at the festival every year. It is a rarity that Krakow often makes use of. Every year Savall returns also to St. Catherine’s Church in Kazimierz (although he has also performed in other locations) – this should come as no surprise, considering the kind of music presented by him.

An experiment. The Huelgas Ensemble and the Renaissance Passion by Cipriano de Rore
Add date: Wednesday, 1 April 2015

The last twenty years taught us various approaches to the Renaissance repertoire. We already know that it can be sung on the basis of the word – its sense, melody and, most importantly, the expression that it must be saturated with. However, the ‘old school’ focusing on the purely musical quality of sound, the logical delivery of the phrase, vertical chords and accentuation in rhythmic complications and the softness and naturalness of the musical tissue, did not cease to be attractive by any means. Excellent singers will create a top aesthetic quality if purely vocal tasks are assigned to them. And this is the world being created by the Huelgas Ensemble, which has been conducted by Paul van Nevel already for 44 years.
