    Back to Bach - Vocal Works

    Although this may sound quite simplistic, we can divide the bulk of Bach’s vocal works
    into two great categories: sacred and secular works. Though Bach didn't compose
    operas, he did compensate by writing cantatas that can be staged, as well as
    writing a number of monumental sacred works.

    Lightbulb Great Duets

    Today's montage will propose not only some tender moments between flirtatious protagonists, but also some duets for two guys and two gals, but I promise, nothing sinister! In this montage, I tried to program works in French, German and Italian…

    Lightbulb audio In Memoriam: Carlo Bergonzi (1924 - 2014)

    Most of our daily podcasts in November recall montages honoring artists we lost in recent years, and I eanted to bring your attention to this one, dedicated to Carlo Bergonzi, who passed away in 2014.

    Carlo Bergonzi’s singing showcased an innate sense of how to mould an immaculate line projected on a long breath, an exemplary clarity of diction, and an authoritative use of the particular style called for in interpreting a role.

    Lightbulb Britten: War Requiem

    For the text of the War Requiem, Britten interspersed the Latin Mass for the Dead with nine poems written by Wilfred Owen, a World War I footsoldier who was killed a week before the Armistice. Owen wrote of his poetry: "I am not concerned with Poetry. My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity. Yet these elegies are to this generation in no sense conciliatory. They may be to the next. All a poet can do today is warn. That is why the true Poets must be truthful."

    Lightbulb In Memoriam: Mario Bernardi (1930 - 2013)

    Mario Bernardi was a national figure who played a seminal role in the life of classical music in Canada. He was born in Kirkland Lake, Ont. in 1930, not a hotbed of classical music in the early years of the Great Depression. He displayed talent at the piano and he moved to Italy when he was six years old with his mother to foster a musical career. He would study at the Venice Conservatory. After graduating in 1945, his family returned to Canada where he finished his studies at The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. He then was a concert pianist.


    In 1957 he conducted the Canadian Opera Company, and in 1963 was coach and assistant conductor at the Sadler's Wells Opera Company (now the English National Opera).


    Bernardi was hired by the late Hamilton Southam to move to Ottawa in 1968 to build the 45-member orchestra for the new National Arts Centre. Virtually from scratch, Mario Bernardi built an orchestra that was considered the finest of its kind in the world, and began a tradition of excellence that continues today with the National Arts Centre Orchestra.

    Please visit the below blog post for a special filler, a vintage complete performance of Humperdinck’s Hansel und Gretel sung in English by the Sadler’s Wells Opera, with Mario Bernardi conducting.
