Peter Lely - John Blow
Obra de Peter Lely (1618-1680), pintor anglès (1)


- Recordatori de John Blow -
En el dia de la celebració del seu 369è aniversari de naixement



Parlem de Pintura...

Peter Lely (Soest, 14 de setembre de 1618 - London, 30 de novembre de 1680) va ser un pintor alemany nacionalitzat anglès posteriorment. Peter Lely va estudiar a Harlem en el taller de Pieter de Grebber. El 1641 es va traslladar a Londres, on es va donar a conèixer pintant paisatges amb figures si bé ràpidament es va orientar vers el retrat amb un estil proper al d'Anton van Dyck. El seu èxit el va promocionar com a pintor de cambra de Carles I i després de Carles II. El seu fill Johann Lely va ser també pintor. Peter va morir a Londres el novembre de 1680, mentre realitzava un retrat de la duquessa de Somerset.



Parlem de Música...

John Blow (Collingham, bap. 23 de febrer de 1649 - Westminster, 1 d'octubre de 1708) va ser un organista i compositor anglès. Es creu va rebre formació al Magnus Song School de Nottinghamshire abans d'entrar, el 1660, com a cantant del cor de la Capella Reial. El 1668 i finalitzada la seva formació, va ser nomenat organista de la Westminster Abbey i un any després va ser nomenat membre dels musicians for virginals del rei. El març de 1674 va jurar com a cavaller de la Capella Reial en la qual va assolir el càrrec de master of the children, lloc que va preservar la resta de la seva vida. Allà va tenir desenes d'alumnes entre ells Henry Purcell. El 1677 va ser nomenat organista de la Capella Reial en un any en què també va rebre el doctorat de música de Canterbury. El 1679 va cedir a Purcell el seu lloc d'organista a la Westminster Abbey si bé després de la mort de Purcell el 1695 va tornar a ocupar el càrrec. El 1680 va compondre Venus and Adonis, la que seria considerada com la primera òpera anglesa en una època, entre els anys 1680 i 1700, considerada la més productiva de la seva carrera. El 1687 va assolir el càrrec de master of the children de la Catedral de Sant Pau i el 1699 va ser nomenat primer compositor de la Capella Reial. John Blow, després d'anys de domini musical compartit amb Purcell, va morir a Westminster l'octubre de 1708.
