CLASSICAL OPUS no.44

Henry Purcell: “Rondeau”

ヘンリー・パーセル:「ロンドロー」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 2 minutes

Centuries before his country modernized rock music with obsessive bass lines, Purcell utilized them in flamboyant court music, here performed with instruments d’époque.  He perfected the art of recurrence, often carrying the pieces to anti-climactic, cathartic aphasia.  His musical heritage dribbles with royal patronage, but England had to wait until the 20th century to become the musical center of the world.  It is then that Purcell’s influence re-emerged, not least for the vintage Michael Nyman (in the second video).

A REFLECTION

Busy old fool, unruly Sun,

Why dost thou thus,

Through windows, and through curtains, call on us?

Must to thy motions lovers’ seasons run?

 

John Donne: “The Sun Rising”
