“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.”

Antonio Vivaldi - Cello Concerto in G minor, RV 416: 1. Allegro

The Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood; Christophe Coin (cello)

Vivaldi wrote more than 500 concertos. About 350 of these are for solo instrument and strings, of which 230 are for violin, the others being for bassoon, cello, oboe, flute, viola d’amore, recorder, lute, or mandolin.
Vivaldi’s music was innovative. He brightened the formal and rhythmic structure of the concerto, in which he looked for harmonic contrasts and innovative melodies and themes; many of his compositions are flamboyantly, almost playfully, exuberant.

Black manuscripts - actually on parchment that was painted black - are amongst the rarest manuscripts we have. At the end of the fifteenth century at the court of Burgundy they were popular for a while. Well known is the black hours in the Morgan Library, but barely known is the black manuscript in Brussels (KB 9085) with dance melodies. On a black ground the notes were drawn in silver while the text was written in gold. Underneath the golden text, silvery letters indicate the dance steps.

Sixth movement (aria alto, soloist: Ruth Sandhoff) from cantata BWV 97 “In allen meinen Taten” (In all my undertakings), performed by the J. S. Bach Foundation of St Gallen under Rudolf Lutz.

If I lay myself down late,
wake up again early,
lie still or go forth,
in weakness and in bondage,
and with whatever perchance occurs,
yet His word comforts me.
