Parlem de Pintura...

Joost Cornelisz. Droochsloot o Drooghsloot (Utrecht, c.1585 - Utrecht, 14 de maig de 1666) va ser un pintor holandès. Es desconeix la seva formació i vida de joventut. El 1616 va entrar al Gremi de Sant Lluc d'Utrecht on en va ser degà els anys 1623, 1641 i 1642. El 1618 es va casar i va tenir un fill, Cornelius Droochsloot, també pintor. Va ser molt respectat i va ser triat en nombrosos càrrecs oficials. Com a pintor fou molt prolífic destacant obres religioses com 'El bon samarità' de 1617, 'Les set obres de la Misericòrdia' de 1618. Ara bé, es va fer conegut per les seves obres paisatgístiques d'àmbits urbans o rurals amb diferents motius quotidians. És per aquest motiu que es creu que va rebre una clara influència de l'obra d'autors de la família Brueghel. Va morir a Utrecht el maig de 1666.

Parlem de Música...

William Lawes (Salisbury, bap. 1 de maig de 1602 - Chester, 24 de setembre de 1645) va ser un compositor anglès, germà petit d'Henry Lawes i un dels músics més destacats de l'Anglaterra del segle XVII. Va estudiar amb Comperario i va entrar al servei del rei Carles. Igual que el seu germà, el 1635 es va convertir en músic del rei en llaüt i cant. Encara que va morir molts anys abans que el seu germà, lluitant amb la tropa reial a Chester, va ser un músic molt més prolífic i destacat que aquest. Va ser el principal compositor de música dramàtica abans de l'aparició de Purcell en el panorama musical. Va escriure música religiosa, àries i obres per a l'escena, entre les quals va destacar The Triumph of peace de Shirley (1633). Va destacar per la seva producció instrumental, en què va mostrar grans dots expressives i una harmonia audaç. En aquest camp va crear danses, In nomine a cinc i sis veus, fantasies en què va utilitzar de tres a set instruments i una col·lecció de sis suites de danses, The royal consort (c.1630). Va estar al servei del rei i va morir en combat durant el setge a Chester. La seva mort, plorada pel rei, es va produir el setembre de 1645.

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

Per la majoria de lectors aquí presents, William Lawes no deu ser, ni molt menys, un desconegut. No obstant, per qui us escriu, si que ho és i amb rotunditat. I això que parlem del que va ser, possiblement, el compositor anglès més important del segle XVII. Prolífic en tots els gèneres de l'època, va destacar per les seves danses i obres dramàtiques. Ara bé, fou precisament la seva música instrumental la que va il·luminar el seu camí fins a assolir un èxit sense precedents. La present edició del dia, de la que escoltarem un parell de 'Setts', el No.6 en Re Major i el No.1 en Re menor, explora els famosos The Royal Consorts per a instruments de corda publicats a l'entorn del 1630. Obres conegudes al seu temps i al nostre, no en va podem trobar-ne nombroses edicions, Lawes va poder viure en primera persona la glòria amb aquest recull de danses, en general tranquil·les, caracteritzades per moviments com pavan i alman, intercalades per fantasies, corant-saraband o fins i tot per delicats eccos. Pensades per a ser ballades, Lawes exporta la veïna suite francesa a Anglaterra que batejant-la amb el nom de 'Setts' no només la va impregnar d'una aroma pròpia, sinó que va construir, sobtadament, un fascinant camí en la història musical del seu país!

Gaudiu i compartiu!

  2. Hola Pau!
    Excelente música, al igual que la de su predecesor William Byrd, al que seguro que algún día haces un hueco en el blog.
    Muchas Gracias!

    1. Hola Frantisek!
      Que coincidencia, hoy precisamente escuché una edición, extraordinaria, de William Byrd (Second Service & Consort Anthems)... sin duda, un agravio no haberlo recuperado aún....! Lo haré... espero que pronto aunque la lista de espera es larga jejeje!
      Gracias!
