Three Notch’d Road Baroque Ensemble – Italian Baroque Structures

August 11 - Three Notch’d Road Baroque Ensemble

Italian Baroque Structures: Operatic Beginnings

3pm concert followed by optional buffet picnic

This program will explore the structure of operatic arias as antecedent to the Italian instrumental forms.  Works for voice and harp by Claudio Monteverdi and sonatas by Dario Castello for violin and harp will explore opposites.  We most deeply appreciate the standard sonata form’s storytelling structure by comparison to its structural opposite, the wildly unstructured stylus fantasticus.

Sonata Prima (1692, Venice) – Dario Castello (1602-163)1

Ab aeterno ordinata sum, SV 262 – Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) 

Lamento di Tristano – Saltarello – Anonymous Italian (14th century)

Luciferm caelestis olim – Giacomo Carissimi (1605-1674)
