PIETRO PAOLO BUGEJA - MESSA SOLENNE - SINFONIA

PIETRO PAOLO BUGEJA - MESSA SOLENNE - SINFONIA
ID: GR92
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

This is the ninth compact disc issued as a result of the initiative of APS Bank of Malta to record a series of CDs with sacred music composed by Maltese composers (released on the Gega New label). The previous CDs presented works of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. This release takes us back to the 19th century and to one of Malta’s most prominent composers - Pietro Paolo Bugeja. He had initial musical studies in Malta and then went on to Naples to continue them in the Concervatorio di Saint ’Onofrio a Capuana between 1791 and 1797. It was in Naples that he wrote his first grand mass for the liturgy of St. Ivo’s Church. In 1798 he returned to Malta and was assistant to Francesco Azopardi, metrolpolitan maestro di capella at St. John’s Cathedral in Valletta. On Azopardi’s death he was selected to succeed him as maestro both of Mdina Cathedral and St. John’s Cathedral.
Bugeja was a composer, conductor and teacher. This versatile activity contributed a lot to the development of his style as a composer.
Pietro Paolo Bugeja wrote Messa solenne in 1827, mainly to be performed in the Cathedral. A very important element of the Messa solenne is its concise form. It was one of the 19th century’s best-known works. Besides it Bugeja also composed four funeral masses, 20 medium masses, 30 psalms, diverse hymns, antiphons and responses. His orchestral works include 9 sinfonie, probably written for church use, since contemporary norm required a sinfonia to precede important liturgical rites. For this purpose, Bugeja also utilized the sinfonia composed for his oratorio Gioas re di Guida - a large-scale orchestral work, written in the ‘seria’ style. According to Professor Richard Divall of the Faculty of Music, University of Melbourne, “the music of Pietro Paolo Bugeja is unjustly neglected, for the standard of his vocal and orchestral writing is very fine indeed. Stylistically Bugeja looks both back in time to the neo classicism of Gluck, with whom he has a stylistic affinity, and forward to the music of Spontini.”

SINFONIA in re maggiore from the oratorio Gioas re di Giuda

During the last months of his life Mozart composed a Requiem, which he was not able to finish. The composition is shrouded in mystery and linked with different legends, all of which are connected with a mysterious gentleman who ordered it. But whatever the reason for its creation, the Requiem is one of the greatest works of the human musical genius. The performance in this release is of prestigious Bulgarian artists, which have achieved an emotional, impressive and fascinating interpretation. The artistic value of the recording is a result of a truthful rendition of the emotions and the meaning of the different movements of the Requiem, and emphasizing the melody and the details of Mozart's music. The soloist ensemble, selected in accordance with the score, contributes to the whole impact of the composition. This release can undoubtedly be ranked among the interesting interpretations of the great work of Mozart.

Precentor of the Monastic Choir of the Valaam Monastery Hierodeacon German (Ryabtsev)

The Akathists to the Most Sweet Jesus and the Mother of God are a vivid expression of Russian piety and a special love of the Russian Orthodox Christians to this kind of prayers, which has become an important part of the daily rule.
The Akathist to the Most Sweet Jesus expresses the pious reverence and humility of Christians at the mystery of the coming to the world of the Son of God and His Incarnation. His deed of redemption, Resurrection and Ascension are glorified in the Akathist. Being aware of his sinfulness, the worshipper hopes for the all-forgiving love and mercy of Christ the Saviour.
The Akathist to the Mother of God expresses the firm belief of the Orthodox people in Her prayers and intercession for humanity before Her Divine Son.
These akathists are the earliest in Orthodox hymnology. It was on this pattern that many other akathists were composed, particularly to the icons of the Mother of God and to many saints.

The verses are penitential, tearful and moving, so that they call the soul to repentance" - this title in chant manuscripts relates to particular works. First of all, these texts appeared in chant books at the end of the fifteenth century. They were not connected to the Church"s Ordo and liturgical practice. They are an ancient layer of Russian para-liturgical religious poetry. The purpose of the verses was to lead the singers and listeners to a pure repentance of sins, once committed or imagined, that would benefit the soul.
The freedom of melody, its beauty and divine inspiration, the lofty sensitivity of its poetry, and the power of all these component parts were so great that the penitential verses survived the medieval tradition by receiving embodiment at the end of the seventeenth century in the new genres of para-liturgical lyric poetry of psalms and religious verses, and in the twentieth century - in the great artistic works of the Russian composers Georgy Sviridov, Valery Gavrilin and Vladimir Martynov.
A.N. Kruchinina, Professor of the St. Petersburg Conservatoire
