The Bononcinis: From Modena To Europe (1666-1747) - INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM

 

The Bononcinis: from Modena to Europe (1666-1747)

International Symposium

Modena, 2-4 December 2016

 

The Festival Musicale Estense “Grandezze & Meraviglie” and the Gruppo Arcomelo 2013 organize an international symposium on the Bononcini family on 2-4 December 2016. The conference focuses on the period that begins with the artistic début of Giovanni Maria (Primi frutti del Giardino musicale op. 1, 1666)— launching the golden age of the Modena violin school—through the European success of the Musico Prattico (1673), paralleling that of the ducal court after the marriage (also in 1673) of Maria Beatrice d’Este and the Duke of York James Stuart, and the second generation of Bononcini musicians (Giovanni and Antonio Maria), who were instrumentalists, oratorio, cantata, and opera composers of great international renown.

         The objectives of the conference are both to explore the life, works, and influence (in a European perspective) the Bononcinis had on Emilian instrumental and vocal music, to shed light on the circulation of music and musicians from Emilia, and on issues of performance practice. In addition to these three major topics, presentations also include other aspects of Emilian music, including the relationship between musical patronage and production, and reciprocal influences between instrumental and vocal music.

            The scientific committee, created four years ago for the organization of the Congresso Arcomelo 2013 (Enrico Gatti, Royal Conservatoire, Den Haag, NL - Conservatorio “G. B. Martini,” Bologna; Guido Olivieri, The University of Texas, Austin, USA; Agnese Pavanello, Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Basel, CH; Marc Vanscheeuwijck, University of Oregon, Eugene, USA; Francesco Zimei, Istituto Abruzzese di Storia Musicale) have opted again—following its first two conferences on “Corelli” in Fusignano (2013) and on “Marchitelli & Mascitti” in Villa Santa Maria (2014)—for an integrated approach, in which research and performance are more organically connected. They have sought to focus on performance practice as an integral part of their thinking about a family of composers of such complexity. The usual concerts thus not only enrich the conclusions of the two days of the symposium, but they are also primarily conceived as musical realizations, almost natural extensions, of the ideas offered in the scholarly presentations.
