This original vintage photograph is from one of various news service and newspaper photo archives from locations around the country including: Boston, Detroit, Tampa, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Portland, Spokane, and more. I do not copy or reproduce any photographs -- every item is a unique vintage piece that was housed in a news archive. All of my photos are in used condition and none have been officially rated. The best indication of condition is the scans you see on the listing which are scans of the individual photo being sold and not a stock image. Please study the images carefully to determine the condition of this vintage photograph, as it may not be in perfect condition. It may contain wrinkles, cracks, and possibly even tears due to its age and how it was handled before it got to us. A scanner may interpret colors and contrast differently than human eyes will, so it is possible that the actual photograph may be slightly darker or lighter in person.

World of Lully
Music in the age of Louis XIV revolved around the formidable composer and impresario Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687), the dominant star in the Sun King's musical galaxy. On this CD, the Chicago Baroque Ensemble and soprano Patrice Michaels present solo and chamber arrangements of Lully's vocal and instrumental theater music. Intimate arrangements such as these were widely performed in salons during Lully's lifetime and long thereafter. For the sumptuous court at Versailles, Lully created music that would "soothe the ear and delight the senses . . . elegant, clear, and well-ordered" (Joseph Machlis, The Enjoyment of Music). Lully combined large baroque gestures with the minute refinement of the French "precieux" style, writes John Mark Rozendaal, the Chicago Baroque Ensemble's artistic director. "Perhaps it is this uncommon interplay between intimate and corporate expression that makes Lully's opera music so satisfying in chamber music renditions," Rozendaal says. The two Lully divertissements on the recording, arranged by the Chicago Baroque Ensemble, comprise song an dance sequences from Alceste, Amadis, Armide, Ballet d"alcidiane, Ballet de l'amour malade, Ballet Des Plaisirs, PersÃ©e, and Phaeton. The Galliarde from Trios pour le coucher du roi shows Lully working in the Ita...

Harmonic Joys by Chicago Baroque Ensemble
The Virtuoso Handel
Experience a side of Handel that's rarely heard these days: exquisitely refined vocal and instrumental chamber music, including three cantatas from his early years in Italy. On The Virtuoso Handel, you'll encounter the type of intimate music making that small, privileged audiences of discerning connoisseurs enjoyed during Handel's sojourn in Rome from 1706 to 1709. Italy at the start of the 18th century was obsessed with singing. It is in this vocally-infused spirit that The Virtuoso Handel was conceived. The Chicago Baroque Ensemble and soprano Patrice Michaels previously collaborated on Cedille's acclaimed A Vivaldi Concert ("A stellar level of artistry." - Cleveland Plain Dealer) and The World of Lully ("All this virtuosity invites repeated listening." - Early Music America). Here they perform secular cantatas on themes of romantic love, history, and mythology, including the dramatic and harrowing La Lucrezia. These challenging pieces showcase Ms. Michaels' silvery voice, lively interpretations, and exceptional mastery of florid Baroque passagework and ornamentation. Also included are instrumental arrangements of arias from three of Handel's Italian operas: two for flute and strings, with irresistible "coloratura" playing on the transverse flute, and one for solo harpsichord. ...

Handel: The Messiah (Highlights)
Sonata seconda in E Minor: VI. Sarabande - Variation
Jewish Baroque Music
From the Seventeenth Century onwards Jewish cultural life has produced multifarious examples of musical practices based on non-Jewish models, such as the adoption of vocal and instrumental polyphony, but introduced at the same time into a decidedly Jewish context. These practices always have two elements in common: firstly all the pieces which have come down to us have direct reference to Jewish life; holidays, circumcisions, anniversaries, important events are celebrated by pieces of music commissioned by the Jewish communities to composers of various origin. Secondly it is clearly evident that these pieces are based on stylistic elements identical with those on which the music of the surrounding non-Jewish world is based. From which we may draw an important conclusion, namely the direct correspondence between the use of the foreign musical language and the process of adoption on the part of Jews, in those areas in which tolerance towards Jews was greatest, of the culture of the Renaissance and Baroque world. This process had its beginning in Italy itself, thanks to the work of Salomone Rossi and to Leone da Modena's theoretical approach.

Sonata prima in D Major: VI. Sarabande - Variation
Easter Oratorio / Christ Lag in Todes Banden
Easter Oratorio / Christ Lag in Todes
This CD is probably the best single-disc example of the controversial one-voice-per-part approach to Bach's cantatas. The singers hold their own nicely with the period instruments--whether the small string ensemble in the solemn Christ lag in Todesbanden or the full Baroque orchestra in the spirited Oratorio. True, the vocal lines sometimes sound no more prominent than the instrumental parts, but a look at Bach's scores supports that. There is a lot of striking music-making here. For example, the opening sinfonia of Christ lag in Todesbanden (taken surprisingly slowly) is breathtaking, as is the soprano-alto duet. The sinfonia and opening chorus of the Oratorio fairly rollick along; Charles Daniels, cushioned by flutes and strings, paints a magical picture of heavenly rest. --Matthew Westphal
