#21  240岁生日快乐,贝多芬             Go Back
路上听到一段熟悉又陌生的旋律,(好像这种scenario发生已经不是第一次了,这说明什么问题?知道的太多还是懂得太少?)只好听到底,看看它到底是谁的,什么曲子。guess what,是贝多芬的康塔塔。哦,怪不得熟悉,因为我这一年里几乎全都是在听巴赫的康塔塔。

电台说今天是贝多芬的作品,因为纪念他的生日。贝多芬的生日是17日,是星期天。我想大概电台播音员有长工,短工之分,周日节目安排和周日不一样,所以提前了。生日快乐。

贝多芬有康塔塔?到公司后查了一下,油管里有两个,这是其中之一:



维基:Ludwig van Beethoven's Cantata on the Death of Emperor Joseph II, WoO 87 is a cantata with a libretto by Severin Anton Averdonk, written in 1790 and intended for the funeral of Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor. Composed when Beethoven was nineteen, it was neither published, nor apparently performed until it premiered in Vienna in November 1884, fifty-seven years after Beethoven's death, and it was first printed in an 1888 supplement to the Complete Works. It remains one of Beethoven's lesser-known works.

今天第一次知道贝多芬写过康塔塔,这两个片段听上去和巴赫的康塔塔很不一样,好像更加接近他弥撒曲的风格。不过很合我的口味。说不出个所以然,扫雷。但就是好听!





关于这“加冕康塔塔”,网上找来这段介绍:

Leopold was elected Holy Roman Emperor on 30 September 1790 and crowned at Frankfurt on 9 October, with the Elector Maximilian Franz in attendance; thus the ‘Leopold’ Cantata must date from this period. Like its companion, it was never performed in Beethoven’s lifetime; but the aria ‘Fliesse, Wonnezähre, fliesse!’, with its obbligato flute and cello parts and its virtuoso vocal line, was clearly written with specific performers in mind. Throughout the 1780s in Bonn Beethoven had the opportunity to hear a wide range of opera, and this aria—by far the most substantial number in the cantata—is evidently his interpretation of the full-dress heroic opera seria coloratura aria, complete with large-scale orchestral ritornelli. It was presumably also his operatic experience that led him, in this Cantata, to include an ensemble number for the three soloists.

The subject matter of the ‘Leopold’ Cantata necessarily dictated a different overall plan to that of the ‘Joseph’ work; in particular, the structural prop of a framing chorus of mourning was not an option here. The ‘Leopold’ Cantata opens with a recitative narrating the death of Joseph and the emergence of Leopold as his successor. Although harmonically wide ranging, this recitative moves from A flat to C major and thus relates directly to the overall key (C minor) of the ‘Joseph’ Cantata. In fact one might argue plausibly for a tonal ‘narrative’ progression (C minor to C major) equating to the textual narrative that links the two works; such a reading inevitably calls again to mind the Fifth Symphony, with its identical tonal progression from C minor to major. The relatively underplayed opening to the Cantata—it begins as it were in medias res—allowed for considerable weight to accrue to the final chorus of praise.

Here Beethoven chose the traditionally bright, celebratory key of D for a multisectional finale (Un poco allegro e maestoso – Allegro vivace – Allegro non tanto) that begins and ends in the relatively uncommon 12/8 metre. Not only in its multisectional nature, its key, and its role as the culminating point in a psychological progression from doubt and sorrow to hope and joy, but also in its attempt to find musical expression for universal rejoicing (note particularly the ungrateful setting—twice!—of ‘Erschallet Jubelchöre, dass laut die Welt es höre!’ to a repeated soprano high A), this finale seems prophetic of that of the Ninth Symphony. And in setting there Schiller’s words ‘Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?’ would not Beethoven, by that time unquestionably the greatest living composer, have remembered putting music to ‘Stürzet nieder, Millionen, an dem rauchenden Altar!’ an artistic lifetime ago in Bonn?

谢谢顶这贴。我本来就是来顶它的。

爱阳好象介绍过这部作品。贝多芬很年青时候的作品。
