Parlem de Música...

Pirro Albergati (Bologna, 20 de setembre de 1663 - Bologna, 22 de juny de 1735) va ser un compositor italià. Fill de Marcantonio Albergati Capacelli i Vittoria Carpegna, es va formar en l'ambient musical de Bolonya on va conèixer, i possiblement estudiar, a G.A. Perti i a Corelli. Tot i no existir documentació oficial, pel que sembla Albergati va treballar al servei de Leopold I. El 1728 va ser nomenat mestre de capella a Puiano. Al ser una persona adinerada, es va convertir en mecenes de diversos músics, entre ells G.M. Bononcini i Giuseppe Jacchini. Va compaginar la seva labor artística amb diversos càrrecs polítics de Bolonya. Com a compositor va ser considerablement prolífic, majoritàriament d'obra religiosa. Va morir a Bolonya el juny de 1735.

Parlem en veu pròpia o en veu d'altri...

Although never a member of the important Accademia Filarmonica, Albergati was a prolific composer, publishing 15 sets of instrumental works, sacred music and cantatas. He also made significant contributions to the Bolognese oratorio, though mostly only the librettos of his works survive, as do those for several theatrical works. Albergati's ties with the Bolognese instrumental school of the late 17th century are evident in the sonatas and dance pieces (especially the sonata for trumpet and strings), though they lack the skill shown by his more famous contemporaries. He was at his best in vocal music: the solo cantatas and oratorios show considerable vocal virtuosity, dramatic vigour and interesting instrumental settings. His fast movements are written in an idiosyncratic manner in which fugal passages are frequently interrupted by rests, producing an abrupt style. In both fast and slow movements he frequently employed the term spicco (detached, accentuated) for notes separated by rests in all parts. The mass and psalm settings of op.4 show him firmly rooted in the Bolognese tradition of concerted sacred music established by his contemporaries, G.P. Colonna and Perti. Two of his letters to Perti are extant (in I-Bc).

Count Capacelli Pirro, or “P. C. A. ” as he usually signed himself, was part of the noble Albergati family. He was born in Bologna on 20th September 1663 and was an amateur violinist and composer (at that time a nobleman could only be described as an “amateur”) and was undoubtedly one of the most important and well-liked musicians in Bologna at the end of the 17th century. He studied with Giacomo Antonio Perti and was particularly friendly with Arcangelo Corelli. Giovanni Bononcini and Giuseppe Iacchini dedicated works to him. He took a very lively part in the life of the town and was appointed Anziano and Gonfaloniere of Bologna more than once. Bologna was a very wealthy town and was the cultural cross roads for old and new trends. Most interestingly, it had a lively musical scene, and was the seat of important institutions and academies, and famous singers and instrument players who founded schools and originated genres and styles. Bologna was famous for the sumptuous feasts, banquets and receptions attended by princes and nobility from all over Europe, and held in palace courtyards, piazzas and villas. There was music everywhere. The Albergati family were famous for continua festa (continuous festivities) even though it involved grandissime spese (vast amounts of money). In the race to achieve honour and prestige, it was natural for a young nobleman to try to obtain favours from the powerful, and Conte Pirro somehow managed to gain the confidence of Leopold I, Emperor of Austria.
