Van 22 mei 2022
16:45 - 18:00

Liubov Titarenko is een Oekraiense klaveciniste, die onlangs uit Oekraine is gevlucht, en nu tijdelijk onderdak heeft gevonden in Nederland. Door bemiddeling van klaveciniste en fortepianiste Olga Pashchenko heeft het GeelvinckMuseum enkele concerten voor haar kunnen regelen, waarvan de opbrengst geheel aan haar ten goede komt. Met het beeldmerk van h Art for Ukraine schaart Museum Geelvinck zich achter de veroordeling van de door het Putin regime geïnitieerde oorlog in Oekraïne en ondersteunt acties om de nood onder vluchtelingen en met name musici uit de regio te lenigen.

Klavecimbel: Klinkhamer Amsterdam, naar Labreche 1690, bruikleen van Anton Amir, Klinkhamer Harpsichord & Fortepianos. The harpsichord is based on an instrument built by Claude Labreche, Carpentras 1690, the original is in the collection of the ‘Landesmuseum für Kunst und Gewerbe’, Stuttgart, Germany. Extended key range to five octaves: FF-f”’,  two eight foot registers, one four foot register and a lute stop. Pitch transposable a=392-415-440, case in solid walnut. The sound is not like that of typical late 18th century French harpsichords, but has a bit more sharpness and articulation; because of the transparancy of it’s character it is very suitable for a wide range of the harpsichord repertoir.


Works for harpsichord of Dmytro Bortniansky, Joseph Anton Steffan & an Anonymous composer of the 18th century.

Joseph Anton Steffan (1726-1797) was a Bohemian-Austrian classical era composer, harpsichordist and a teacher. Steffan’s compositional output includes sacred works and chamber music (especially piano music). In particular he wrote caprices, harpsichord sonatas and concertos. Steffan was a major figure in the development of the Classical style. His keyboard works, including concertos and sonatas, reveal him as a worthy compatriotof Haydn and Mozart. He was the first to pubi, lieder collections in Vienna. 

Dmytro Bortniansky (1751-1825) was a prominent composer and conductor. In his choral liturgical works Bortniansky combined the age-old traditions of Ukrainian choral music with the achievements of late 18th-century European music. The influence of melodies of Ukrainian folk songs is clearly discernible in these works. Concentrating exclusively on the purely vocal a capella style, Bortniansky achieved a high level of technical proficiency in his sacred music, simultaneously imbuing it with a deep spiritual mood. While Bortniansky’s operas and instrumental works remained popular only among small circles of music lovers, his choral works contributed to the spread and elevation of choral art in Ukraine. Bortniansky’s works had a special significance for Wester Ukraine, where they stimulated the rebirth of a national musical life in the early 19th century.
