      Abstract: ‘A Rameau revival is in full swing’, wrote Neal Zaslaw in his guest editorial to the Rameau tercentenary issue of Early Music (October 1983). And indeed, the previous decade had witnessed an extraordinary upsurge of interest in all aspects of Rameau’s legacy on the part of performers, listeners and scholars, while the tercentenary itself was marked by notable opera productions and concerts, and by major conferences in Montreal, Boston and Rameau’s native city of Dijon.

  • A little-known bust of Jean-Philippe Rameau in London
    • Authors: Dawson A.
      First page: 515
      Abstract: AbstractA small Sèvres porcelain bust of Rameau in the British Museum is a new addition to the 18th-century iconography of the composer. Its genesis and production are discussed, and its revival at the end of the 19th century noted.

  • Satirical portraits and visual lampoons of Rameau and his works
    • Authors: Gétreau F.
      First page: 523
      Abstract: AbstractFrom Les Fêtes d’Hébé and Dardanus in 1739 to the revival of Hippolyte et Aricie in 1778, Rameau and his music were the target of satirical engravers and designers. While some of the artists remain anonymous, others include such famous names as Louis Carrogis dit Carmontelle, Charles-Nicolas Cochin II the younger, and Marin Fessard the younger, after Pierre-Louis Durand and Charles-Nicolas Cochin II the younger. This article gives a chronological panorama of the engravings, analysing their iconography in detail and identifying their sources, motives and polemical context. The images are examined in conjunction with a group of drawings by Charles-Germain de Saint-Aubin (1721–86) in his Livre de caricatures tant bonnes que mauvaises, dating from 1740 to 1775 and preserved in the Rothschild collection at Waddesdon Manor, England. Those drawings relating to Rameau in this collection, still almost entirely unknown to musicologists, will be discussed in relation to a recent Voltaire Foundation publication devoted to them in 2012.

  • Rameau’s Treatise on the Composition of Musical Canons and the Bresou
           collection: new discoveries and attributions
    • Authors: Bouissou S.
      First page: 553
      Abstract: AbstractThe Bresou manuscript (Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale de France (Conservatoire), Rés. f.1212) contains 86 canons ‘attributed to Rameau’ according to an annotation found on the second title-page. After discovering this manuscript in 2006, I identified four of the canons as being by Laurent Gervais, François Couperin, Caldara and Desfontaines. I thus thought it inappropriate to attribute the others to Rameau. And yet, after recently discovering evidence that Rameau is the author of Grégoire est mort and Frère Jacques, two very popular canons included in the Bresou manuscript, I have had to reconsider my earlier position. This article offers an overview of the canons attributed to Rameau in printed and manuscript sources, and attempts to answer the question of whether the Bresou canons were in fact intended as illustrations for Rameau’s now-lost treatise Traité de la composition des canons en musique.

  • ‘Ces piéces éxécutées sur le claveçin seul ne laissent rien à
           désirer’: reflections on playing Rameau’s Pièces de clavecin en
           concerts on solo keyboard
    • Authors: Gutman S.
      First page: 567
      Abstract: Abstract‘These pieces played on solo harpsichord leave nothing to be desired’: Rameau’s breezy assertion, in his ‘Avis aux concertans’, appears straightforward enough, even though the score of the Pièces de clavecin en concerts indicates parts for three players. For those pieces where the harpsichord part as it stands would not be sufficient, Rameau indicated that he had made suitable transcriptions or had given advice in his preface. Yet solo harpsichordists have not generally performed these pieces. This article examines Rameau’s own advice and practice (as shown by his transcriptions), and explores their implications for making a satisfying solo version of the rest of the pieces. Particular attention is given to the problems of the fifth Concert, for which Rameau left no instructions whatsoever.

  • Hidden meaning in Agnus Dei canons: two cases from the Alamire manuscripts
    • Authors: Saunders Z.
      First page: 593
      Abstract: AbstractIt is well known that composers of Renaissance polyphony often incorporated in their works elements that carried extra-musical associations. Sixteenth-century polyphonic settings of the Agnus Dei were often especially rich in symbolism, through various devices: canonic tenors, cryptic canons, added voices and number of breves. This article explores two of the most notable symbolic elements in anonymous Masses in the Alamire manuscripts, which have not yet been approached from this point of view. The composer of the overtly Marian Missa supra Salve Regina used number symbolism and reduced scoring in the Agnus Dei to represent the Holy Trinity, and the Missa Du bon du cueur will be shown to have been especially important to Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria, based on its cryptic Agnus Dei canon.

  • Orchestras on stage in the Georgian-era playhouse: unravelling the origin
           of the ‘Winston’ sketch
    • Authors: Rogers VL.
      First page: 607
      Abstract: AbstractAn intriguing 19th-century sketch of a rare Georgian-era orchestra arrangement for London’s Drury Lane Theatre is held in a scrapbook in the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC. The unusual drawing by theatre historian James Winston places the theatre orchestra on an annexe projecting out from the front of the stage and over the pit, seemingly causing some of the benches to be removed. The extension raises the orchestra to the height of the stage in order to showcase a large number of musicians in what was clearly an extraordinary musical event. Despite the scarcity of orchestral seating plans in Britain during this period, the sketch has been ignored by scholars—probably because the event it depicts has remained a mystery. Why would Winston have sketched this orchestral arrangement? And if it was for a special performance, what was the occasion?Seating plans for English orchestras are exceedingly rare, and so Winston’s drawing is particularly valuable for those who seek iconographical evidence of how an orchestra of this period might have been arranged. We can learn much about orchestral performances in London’s theatres, specifically which instruments were present in the playhouse, prevailing ideas about seating and layout, how the stage might have accommodated the orchestra, and other related matters. Winston’s detailed drawing contains some excellent clues, giving us a substantive start at understanding how orchestral music in the late Georgian era theatre might have worked ‘on the stage’.

  • Made in Amsterdam: a 1771 cittern by Benoit Joseph Boussu
    • Authors: Verberkmoes G.
      First page: 627
      Abstract: AbstractCittern-family instruments enjoyed popularity in the second half of the 18th century, most notably in the British Isles and France. Many such instruments from these countries have survived in museums and private collections. This ‘guittar’ fashion also took root in the Netherlands, although very few Dutch-made, late 18th-century citterns have survived. The recent rediscovery of an Amsterdam-made cittern by Benoit Joseph Boussu, previously only known about from written sources, adds another example to this small but important group of Dutch-made instruments.In this article, the Boussu cittern is comprehensively described, based on visual observations, endoscopy and CT-scanning, techniques that also enable a detailed analysis of its inner construction. The instrument’s provenance and the biography of its maker are also discussed.These analyses lead to the conclusion that a cittern, of equal quality and appearance to British and French instruments, had already been built in the Netherlands as early as 1771, and included in its design an innovative watch-key tuning mechanism.

  • Mainly French, mainly vocal, mainly Baroque
    • Authors: Hansell D.
      First page: 656
      Abstract: Almost without exception this group of recordings features imaginative programmes and fine performances supported by strong complementary documents and the music ranges widely—from perfectly formed miniatures to a full-scale operatic masterpiece. On Moulinié, Boësset: L’air italien au temps de Louis XIII (Musica Ficta mf8014, rec 2011, 55′) the relaxed though far from bland singing of Dagmar Saskova and Francisco Javier Mañalich is a consistent pleasure and a comparatively rare outing for a Frescobaldi canzona per basso solo is very welcome. I do wonder, however, about the historical plausibility of some of the elaborate ensemble accompaniments and the appoggiatura that ends Boësset’s Non speri pieta sounds several decades ahead of its time. The liner notes offer French and English versions of the essay though the sung texts are translated from Italian to French only. This issue does not arise on Tabarinades (Atma acd2 2658, rec 2011, 58′) as, although a number of the items are vocal in origin, here they are all given in instrumental arrangements. However, these seem too subtle and complex for the world of Parisian street theatre c.1600 which they aim to reflect—more reminiscent of Respighi’s Ancient Airs and Dances than the Renaissance. What might have been is revealed in the eloquent strings only Pavane by Thomas Lupo.

      First page: 658
      Abstract: This batch of recordings, all of wind-centric pieces, divides into two groups: one of chamber works and one of concertos or other works featuring a solo instrument. Including some well-known and often-recorded works and some that have never before been available on CD, this set demonstrates the virtuosity of today’s historically informed performers and hints at the range and quantity of Classical wind music, which is still easy to overlook as a genre to listen to and to perform.

  • A rich harvest of Zelenka
    • Authors: Rawson RG.
      First page: 660
      Abstract: For a composer whose modern revival was initially devoted to a handful of fine instrumental works (some of which were first revived by Smetana in the 19th century), over the course of the last few decades the listening public has been treated to the revival of his large body of sacred music as well. Jan Dismas Zelenka’s modern revival was not on a path of universal praise, however, and initially his strikingly original harmonic and melodic language occasionally contributed to his dismissal as something of a crank (not unlike Janáček’s early reception!), but with a growing body of scholarship and an ever-increasing discography, the sheer quality and originality of Zelenka’s music has surely secured his position as one of the most original musical minds of his time.

  • Cantus Planus 2016 in Dublin

      First page: 663
      Abstract: The biannual meeting of the International Musicological Society’s study group Cantus Planus is certainly an excellent opportunity to learn about the most recent findings in the field and engage in discussions about them in a friendly and inspiring environment. This year’s Cantus Planus took place from the 2nd to the 7th of August in Dublin. The University of Notre Dame’s Keough-Naughton Centre and the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, conveniently located on the same street, hosted it for three days. University College Dublin, which also served as the accommodation for most delegates, was the last day’s venue, and was likewise very suitable for this event. The programme included nearly 100 papers, a session with posters, a delightful Compline service chanted by Peregryne at the Church of St Audoen, a packed day-trip to the counties of Wicklow and Kildare, and visits to view manuscripts in the Royal Irish Academy, the Chester Beatty Library and the Old Library at Trinity College.

  • MedRen 2016 in Sheffield
    • Authors: Bate S.
      First page: 664
      Abstract: The Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference has grown appreciably over the last decade; the 2015 meeting in Brussels was the first to reach the milestones of 300 registrants and 200 presenters. Such figures pose challenges to organizers and delegates (not to mention the would-be writer of a succinct précis): the former must carve out a format that maintains quality and momentum, while the latter, happily spoilt for choice of papers, are faced with the familiar difficulty of negotiating up to four parallel sessions. In the event, this year’s conference in Sheffield saw slightly smaller numbers, but nonetheless the organizing committee amply met the challenge in presenting an exciting and innovative programme over the four days. The geography of the University of Sheffield’s state-of-the-art (and visually striking) Diamond Building also made it easy to chart one’s preferred course through each session; the commodious facilities made up for the lack of historical resonance with the subject matter of the conference, although a touch of ambience was lent to the papers delivered in the gothic revival church-cum-lecture theatre next door to the main venue.

  • Baroque and roll in Canterbury
    • Authors: Lindekens K; Gardner M, Giles R, et al.
      First page: 666
      Abstract: Over the years, the Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music has become something of a Glastonbury for early music studies: an indispensable summer festival of scholarship covering the most diverse areas of 17th- and 18th-century music, its multiple stages populated by an international line-up of rising and shining stars. The seventeenth conference was chaired by Robert Rawson and flawlessly hosted by Canterbury Christ Church University from Wednesday 13 to Sunday 17 July 2016. During the welcome reception, 162 delegates assembled in a garden of the picturesque Cathedral Precincts. They quickly came to understand that the conference programme promised an embarrassment of riches indeed: four parallel strands of papers, lecture-performances and roundtables were complemented by several alluring activities in the historical city of Canterbury. Even a collaborative account such as this cannot begin to capture the diversity and depth of the scholarship presented at the conference. At best, it aims to paint a general picture and to highlight some memorable moments.

      Abstract: On 21 October 2016, I took part in a concert at Edinburgh University in celebration of the life of harpsichordist Lucy Carolan (died 4 September 2015). The concert was organized by Lucy’s long-time friend and colleague, John Kitchen, and included violinist John Holloway; the three of us performed solos and trio sonatas by J. S. Bach, Handel, Peter Philips, Marais and Louis Couperin. Following the concert, I write this letter as my own tribute to Lucy, with the encouragement of the editors, as a counter-balance to Richard Abram’s obituary (Early Music, xliv/1 (2016), pp.181–2).

      Abstract: The solitary words ‘oytabado’ and ‘tortorilla’ inserted between the staves at bars 37 and 64 respectively in both the Venice and Parma versions of Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in C major k255 have been the subject of much speculation (see J. Sheveloff, ‘Domenico Scarlatti: tercentenary frustrations (part II)’, Musical Quarterly, lxxii/1 (1986), pp.90–118, at pp.98–9; L. F. Tagliavini, ‘Remarks on the compositions for organ of Domenico Scarlatti’, in Bach, Handel, Scarlatti: tercentenary essays, ed. P. Williams (Cambridge, 1985), pp.321–5, at p.323). The various theories, which have been summarized by Malcolm Boyd (Domenico Scarlatti: master of music (London, 1986), p.178), invoke organ stops, an old Portuguese dance, and birdsong. Each of these theories is disputed by one or other of the three authors; Boyd’s reluctance to link ‘oytabado’ with a Portuguese dance, because of the placement of the word in the score, is further supported by Scarlatti’s failure to similarly label other sonatas which have been putatively identified as dances (see J. Clark, ‘Domenico Scarlatti and Spanish folk music’, Early Music iv/1 (1976), pp.19–21).

  • Equal temperament
    • Authors: Jerold B; Miehling K, Ozmo Ž.
      First page: 671
      Abstract: In ‘Should (early) Baroque music be equally tempered?’ (Early Music, xliv/1 (2016), pp.119–24), Žak Ozmo makes a compelling argument, which is further strengthened by Ercole Bottrigari’s Il Desiderio, overo De’ concerti di varii strumenti musicali (1594). Bottrigari vividly describes the intonation problem inherent in combining keyboard instruments and harps with viols, lutes, wind instruments and trombones. Instead of celestial harmony, his protagonist hears offensive confusion and discord, and wonders if something is wrong with his ear. Ozmo is correct in stating that ‘practicality has always been one of the chief guiding principles of music-making’. In succeeding centuries, equal temperament had many more adherents, particularly among elite musicians, than believed today. Bottrigari’s text, together with supporting material extending into the 18th century, is presented in my ‘Intonation standards and equal temperament’, Dutch Journal of Music Theory, xii/2 (2007), pp.215–27 (included in a reprint of my articles: Music performance issues: 1600–1900 (Hillsdale, NY, 2016)). Pertinent new source material about intonation and temperament appears also in my book The complexities of early instrumentation: winds and brass (Turnhout, 2015), and in ‘Diderot (Part II)—Temperament and expressive intonation’, Music Theory & Analysis, ii/1 (2015), pp.69–93.

  • New light on Jean-Philippe Rameau’s biography revealed by revisions
           to his father’s will
    • Authors: Kocevar E.
      Abstract: AbstractJean Rameau led a life as a ‘good’ father: throughout his lifetime, he put money aside in an attempt to assure his numerous children a future free from want. A study of his numerous wills and codicils nevertheless reveals the tensions that existed in the Rameau household, notably between Jean Rameau and his two surviving sons, Jean-Philippe and Claude Bernard. Yet despite this strained relationship, Jean-Philippe was in later life to adopt attitudes very close to those of his father, as a detailed study of the surviving documents will reveal.

  • Savage love: the Indifferent Woman, violent seduction and 18th-century
           French cantatas
    • Authors: Ray M.
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay argues that some 18th-century French cantatas challenged contemporary women’s desires to avoid love and marriage by encouraging suitors to respond to women’s resistance with sexual violence. Many of these cantatas adapted Ovid’s stories, which had long formed the source material for ballets and tragédies en musique. The celebration of violence in these cantatas, however, charted new territory. The works of Nicolas Renier, Louis Lemaire, Michel Pignolet de Montéclair and Jean-Philippe Rameau provide evidence of this darker, savage depiction of love, in which it became the norm to subdue the Indifferent Woman with violence.

  • German keyboard music from the late Renaissance to the Galant
    • Authors: McKean J.
      Abstract: Recordings of German keyboard music have long been a mainstay of the early music discography, with the peerless works of J. S. Bach often taking pride of place. Although Bach is represented in the batch of twelve recordings reviewed here, these releases are largely devoted to the music of lesser-known keyboardist-composers. We begin with a number of discs featuring works from the North German organ school before moving on to consider several recent recordings of harpsichord music, ranging from Froberger’s suites to harpsichord duets by W. F. and J. C. Bach.
