Presentation

Bach was only ten years old when one of Italy's most glorious musicians, Giovanni Paolo Colonna, died in Bologna in 1695. Aged 58, his death deprived him of the appointment to Saint Peter's in Rome that Pope Innocent XII had just proposed to him.

Born in 1637 like Buxtehude, Colonna spent most of his career at the Bologna cathedral, while working for the grandest Italian courts, including the Medici in Florence. His style, marked by majesty and brilliance, between Carissimi’s and Handel’s, rank him high major in the modernisation of Italian music. Emperor Leopold I possessed all of his sacred works in Vienna, and Sebastien de Brossard considered him "the master of masters".

Here is an opportunity to discover this specialist in counterpoint and vocal virtuosity, by presenting his splendid Mass in E minor together with Bach's famous Magnificat composed four decades later. A rare assemblage, the fruit of Leonardo Garcia Alarcon's passion!
