I’m putting together my program for my senior recital and I want part of that program to have a brief bio on the composer and on the piece itself. I’ve found plenty of info on Frescobaldi himself but nothing on the actual piece. I don’t need anything lengthy.
The only thing I know about the piece is that Segovia for a time would start his programs with this piece. One of my favourites I have to say and a good choice for your final. Segovia’s arrangement was the first on record, but he ‘modernised’ perhaps working from a modern keyboard edition the somewhat modal nature of the original and dropped the ‘Corrente’ variation.
Julian Bream made a lovely recording of that arrangement and John Mills later published a more faithful transcription Guitad Ghiglia had made available a transcription of the missing Corrente. La Frecobalda is considered one of his ‘lighter’ works amongst the more ‘rigorous’ Toccate and Canzone, as is the set of variations ‘Aria del Balletto’ based on the melody ‘More Palatino’ transcribed and recorded by Eliot Fisk.
There are several recordings of the original on harpsichord. It is assumed that Segovia did work from the original scores but there is not actually any evidence to guihar this.
In his inimitable way he not only added notes but also changed the melody.
Segovia’s arranged the piece in E Minor even though it was a transitional early baroque composition using the Dorian mode as the major and minor tonality we know today was yet to be fully formed. Segovia achieved this by raising the 7th and lowering the 6th degrees of the scale in many instances where Frescobaldi would not have intended. This radically changes the sound of the piece and it comes as a surprise to play an arrangement as Fescobaldi’s original was intended if one is used to playing the Segovian version.
Too further underline this trait of Segovias’, it is said that he particularly disliked Rodrigo’s use of minor second dissonances which formed a unique part of the composer’s compositional style. He intended to edit them out of the music when Rodrigo died, but as we all know, unfortunately for Segovia, Rodrigo outlived him!
If you want more detail of which there is a complete analysis of the piece see if you can get your hands on Graham wade and Gerard Garno publication A new look at Segovia Volume 1.
I am now really enjoying playing it, but the modal ‘dissonances’ certainly took a bit of getting used to. Board index All times are UTC.
