In the present concert a journey through the main songs of Vicente Martín y Soler (1754-1806), W.A. Mozart (1756-1791) and F. Schubert (1797-1828). The city of Vienna hosted
to these three authors and decisively marked their production.
The Valencian Vicente Martín y Soler had a great success in life, mainly thanks to his operas. With the Giocoso drama ‘A rare thing’, premiered in Vienna in 1786, it reaped great
triumphs It was represented in almost all important European scenarios. An example of the success he achieved is the inclusion of the melody ‘O quanto un si bel giubilo’, by Mozart in his opera
‘Don Giovanni’, as a tribute.
Mozart never used the name of lied to name his pieces for solo voice and keyboard, but he referred to them as canzonette, ariette or, fundamentally, deutsche Arien, with the occasional addition of the expression zum Singen beim Klavier (German arias for sing to the keyboard). Clarity of lines, fluidity, variety and elegance are characteristics. In them the feeling is sometimes picked up, and sometimes full of exaltation.
Franz Schubert is given the merit of the true fusion between music and poetry, without a doubt the most defining and sophisticated feature of the lied genre. His Lieder presents an almost infinite palette of styles, nuances, melodic lines and accompaniments that are, in essence, musical responses evoked by poetry.
We will have the great fortune to count for this concert with a fortepiano (kindly donated for the occasion by Laura Granero), which turns out to be a reliable copy of a model
Central European of the late eighteenth / early nineteenth century. That is, we will hear a sound that closely approximates the type of keyboard for which our three authors composed.
