More (And Less) On Bach's Orchestra, Joshua Rifkin Jan 1991

More (And Less) On Bach's Orchestra, Joshua Rifkin

Performance Practice Review

Hans-Joachim Schulze has argued that Bach wanted his music to be performed by large forces, and therefore performances with sharply downsized, even so-called soloistic ensembles misrepresent the composer's intentions. A review of the matter, however, shows that Schulze has misread, and even misrepresented, the relevant evidence, and that Bach's preferences indicate a far more varied picture than Schulze would allow.

The Vibrato Controversy, Frederick Neumann Jan 1991

The Vibrato Controversy, Frederick Neumann

Performance Practice Review

Today's early music specialists either ban the use of vibrato or restrict it drastically. This position suffers from three principal weaknesses: the failure to understand the nature of a well-produced vibrato in which the so-called impurities of pitch become inaudible above a certain threshold of speed, through a mysterious brain function (comparable to that involved in stereophonic sound or stereoscopic vision); a misinterpretation of sources; and an unawareness of extensive historical evidence for vibrato use through four centuries, culminating in Mozart's eulogy of a fine vibrato for voice and instruments.


Vibrato In Eighteenth Century Orchestras, Neal Zaslaw Jan 1991

Vibrato In Eighteenth Century Orchestras, Neal Zaslaw

Performance Practice Review

A rebuttal of Neumann, The vibrato controversy (see RILM 8965). The published writings of Galeazzi (1791-96), Geminiani (1751), Robert Bremner (1777), Carl Friedrich Cramer (1783), L. Mozart (1756), and the correspondence of W.A. Mozart (1778) maintain that vibrato was usually not employed by ripienists in 18th-c. orchestras, but only by soloists, and then used sparingly compared to modern practice.


The Emergence Of The Modern Conductor, Luke Jensen Jan 1991

The Emergence Of The Modern Conductor, Luke Jensen

Performance Practice Review

During the first half of the 19th c., the duty of directing Italian opera was divided between the maestro al cembalo (sometimes known as the maestro concertatore) and the direttore d'orchestra, with greater responsibility falling on the former. The consolidation of these two roles into one led to the emergence of the modern conductor of Italian opera. The careers of Angelo Mariani and Emanuele Muzio illustrate this transition.
