Parlem de Pintura...

Peeter [Peter, Pieter, Petrus, Pierre] van Bredael (Antwerpen, bap. 19 de juliol de 1629 - Antwerpen, bur. 9 de març de 1719) va ser un pintor flamenc. El gener de 1640 es va unir al taller de David Ryckaert III on hi va estudiar fins el 1644. A partir d'aleshores va realitzar diversos viatges, entre ells a Espanya i probablement a Itàlia. El 1648 va tornar a Anvers on es va casar amb Anna Maria Veldener, filla de Jenijn Veldener, amb qui va tenir vuit fills. A partir del 1651 va començar a treballar de forma més lliure en un any en què també es va unir al Gremi de Sant Lluc d'Anvers. També en aquell temps es va unir a la schutterij. Com a pintor es va fer conegut per les seves escenes de gènere i paisatges d'estil italià. També va treballar com a copista d'escenes de batalla del pintor Philips Wouwerman. Els seus fills Jan Peeter van Bredael, Alexander van Bredael i Joris van Bredael i els seus nets Joseph van Bredael, Jan Pieter van Bredael 'el jove' i Jan Frans van Bredael van ser també pintors. Com a professor, va tenir nombrosos alumnes entre ells, i a banda dels seus fills, Hendrik Frans van Lint i Ferdinandus Hofmans. Peeter van Bredael va morir a Anvers el març de 1719.



Parlem de Música...

Jeremiah Clarke [Clark, Clerk] (c.1674 - London, 1 de desembre de 1707) va ser un organista i compositor anglès. La seva vida inicial es desconeix sent la primera referència del seu nom de 1685 any en què constava inscrit en el cor de la Capella Reial i en què hi va romandre fins el 1692. Anys més tard va aparèixer com a organista del Winchester College on hi va treballar fins el 1699 any que va ser nomenat vicar-choral de la Catedral de Sant Pau de Londres sota la direcció de John Blow, compositor a qui va substituir en el càrrec el 1703. El juliol de 1700 va accedir al càrrec d'organista de la Capella Reial si bé pocs anys més tard, i fruit d'un desamor, es va suïcidar. El seu alumne William Croft el va substituir en el seu càrrec a la Capella Reial de Londres.

  1. Fantástico! ... como siempre!! Nunca deja de asombrarme el ingente número de compositores cuya existencia ignoraba por completo y que, de no ser por tu excelente trabajo, jamás habría llegado a conocer. Ya ni siquiera soy capaz de llevar la cuenta.
    Muchísimas gracias Pau!!

    1. ... Y los que aún quedan por recuperar y cuya existencia también ignoraba por completo. Musicalmente para el melómano vivimos, sin lugar a dudas, en una edad de oro! Tanto por cantidad pero especialmente por calidad! Qué decirte querido Frantisek, es una pasada!

      Abrazo fuerte!
