Lawrence E. Bennett

primi voli dell'aquila austriaca , a dramma da camera of which only the libretto is extant. He seems to have been the first to have used the term ‘cantata per camera’, and his cantatas were probably performed for occasional academic activities at Modena. He dedicated the chamber opera and madrigals, as well as Musico prattico , to Emperor Leopold I, which no doubt helped to prepare the way for the eventual engagement of both his sons at the Habsburg court. Four months after the death of his first wife, on 29 June 1677 , Bononcini married Barbara Agnese Tosatti

reverted to an earlier style of opéra-ballet pioneered by Campra in L'Europe galante ( 1697 ). Rameau's other works in this genre all derive from the more orthodox oriental and Greek myths or legends. The opéra-ballet was ideally suited to Rameau's musical talents, and he responded with an inexhaustible stream of first-rate and by no means merely decorative music. Not surprisingly, many of the opéras-ballets and isolated entrées have proved to be among his most popular and enduring works. Among Rameau's remaining operas, two principal species may be di

some of the best conductors of the day, among them Willem Mengelberg, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Fritz Busch and Hermann Scherchen, men who would later champion his compositions. The principal conductor, Ludwig Rottenberg, conducted the German premières of operas by Debussy, Dukas and Bartók and promoted Schreker’s operas above all. (Hindemith married his youngest daughter, Gertrud, in 1924 .) In 1915 Hindemith became the second violinist in Rebner’s string quartet. He also appeared as a violin soloist playing concertos by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn. In 1923

his first 12-note works (apart from the three songs of op.48) since the opera, and with it the culminating productions of this period of his work. They are cast in the respective three- and four-movement moulds traditional in such works, but the individual movements abandon strict Classical layout. The first-movement recapitulations no longer correspond to the measure of the expositions, but are engulfed in the development, which continues unchecked to the close. The forward urge that marks all Schoenberg’s music asserts itself so forcefully here that a return to s

oratorios and a number of theatrical items, even pantomimes, and especially certain occasional pieces such as martial music … Turkish music, music with ‘steel keyboard’ and lastly a musical sleigh ride; not to speak of marches, so-called ‘Nachtstücke’ and many hundreds of minuets, opera dances and similar items. Most of these works are lost: of the 30 large serenades only one is extant, and of the oratorios and other theatrical items only two. Nevertheless, a significant body of music, chiefly symphonies, keyboard and chamber works, as well as masses, litanies and
