Una notte d'amore
The Chamber Music Cycle of Auditorio de Tenerife presents the concert 'Una notte d'amore ' by the Aede Ensemble.
Love is one of the great universal themes, a source of inspiration for creators and artists of all times and cultures. Aede Ensemble wants to celebrate love with a programme that includes different musical miniatures with some of the jewels of love poetry in Spanish interspersed among them, only to culminate with the Cantata d’Amore (Love Cantata) by David Krivitsky, which will be performed for the first time after its debut in 1984. Music and poetry to open a window to love in its many facets and forms.
Dutch Renaissance poet Johannes Secundus (1511-1536) wrote his collection of poems in Latin, Basia (Kisses), which in turn inspired several subsequent poets of different origins, such as Sannazaro, Ben Johnson, Meléndez Valdés, and Jean Bonnefons. The first translation into Spanish was done by the Pre-Romantic writer and humanist Graciliano Afonso (1775-1861), born in La Orotava. Kiss XVIII by Johannes Secundus served as the basis for the composition of the Cantata d’Amore (Love Cantata) by Russian composer David Krivitsky (1937-2010), the central piece of this concert. It is a cantata for a mezzo-soprano voice, narrator, viola d'amore, and chamber ensemble in seven movements.
