Paolo Cherici revisits for the lute some works by Johann Sebastian Bach originally intended for flute and violin with basso continuo.
In this new work Paolo Cherici revisits for lute some works by Johann Sebastian Bach originally intended for flute and violin with basso continuo. The edition of the recorded pieces is available from Suvini Zerboni in guitar notation; the same pieces will soon be published in tablature with the title J.S. Bach - Lo stile italiano. The great publishing and recording project undertaken by Paolo Cherici is the result of important research that highlights the complex relationship between the Italian and French styles that dominated the European scene at the time of Bach. Italian and French tastes and manners come from two places in Europe with opposing histories but which - at least as far as the world of notes is concerned - have always maintained a dominant role, alternating in the different eras as protagonists/antagonists/co-protagonists. France and Italy determined the trend lines of musical production well after Lully, at least throughout the 18th century. The definition of the two styles conditioned compositional techniques, performance practice, the relationship with the text, the conception of vocal and instrumental forms, the use of ornamentation; composers and performers, studying the different styles, marked the differences or underlined the analogies, in a continuous synergy.
