Il duello musicale
Capricornus versus Bertali

The concert subtitled "Il Duello Musicale" will virtually feature a meeting between the artists Capricornus and Bertali, which is important for music history, since even today, musicologists and music theorists research the sonatas in the Prothimia suavissima anthology and the discoveries bring surprising results.

Artists´ message to visitors

In 1672 an anthology called Prothimia suavissima („Sweetest Desire“) was published in Germany, containing 24 church sonatas for three or four instruments and basso continuo. The author of this anthology is given as “J. S. A. B.“, an abbreviation which Sebastien Brossard, former owner of the only preserved copy, decoded as meaning Bertali. At the concert the audience will hearken to the sweet sound, singing and rhetorical speech of strings instruments of different instrumental families.

 

About the project

In the 17th century Bratislava was one of the most important towns in terms of its high-quality musical production in churches and cathedrals. This musical development was inspired by the culturally advanced neighbouring countries, Austria and Bohemia. The Story of Capricornus and Bertali is still relevant at present and the collection Prophimia suavissima duodenal duodenum prima e seconda furthermore includes the works, whose authors have not yet been identified. Concert comparisons of the compositional styles can thus contribute to a further development of the issues raised by the anthology.

 

About the concert programme

In 1672 an anthology called Prothimia suavissima (“Sweetest Desire”) was published in Germany, containing 24 church sonatas for three or four voices and basso continuo. The author of this anthology is „J. S. A. B. “. Sebastien Brossard, the former owner of the only preserved copy, decoded the abbreviation as „Bartali“. He probably meant the imperial chapel master Antonio Bertali (+1669), a violinist who also composed sonatas. The Slovak musicologist Ladislav Kačic identified the first six sonatas of the second part as identical with those of the anthology Continuation der neuen wohl angestimmten Taffel-Lustmusic (1671) by Samuel Capricornus (+1665, born in Bohemia, chapel master in Bratislava and Stuttgart). In this collection, there is however one composition under the name of Antonio Bertali. On the other hand, among the sonatas of Prothimia suavissima there are also some, which are in written sources attributed to Bertali, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and David Pohle. There are obvious differences of style among the sonatas, so we can assume that after Capricornus´ and Bertali´s death one or two publishers took advantage of their compositions and published them together with others of different origin. The parts of the anthology are full of serious mistakes.
