    Default Baldassare Galuppi

    Oh Galuppi, Baldassaro, this is very sad to find!
    I can hardly misconceive you; it would prove me deaf and blind;
    But although I take your meaning, 'tis with such a heavy mind!

    Here you come with your old music, and here's all the good it brings.
    What, they lived once thus at Venice where the merchants were the kings,
    Where Saint Mark's is, where the Doges used to wed the sea with rings?

    ....
    I was recently reading Browning's poem, and it inspired me to look into the subject. I've been enjoying some of his keyboard music lately. Are any of you others familiar at all with this composer?

    I enjoy listening to his chamber music in a form of string quartet, I think it's the earliest of that form.

    Music and silence combine because music is done with silence and silence is full of music.

    I wasn't - but am really pleased to find this guestbook now that I've come across him.

    Here's the Wiki link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldassare_Galuppi

    and here's an entry in Lesser Known Composer of the Month (Florida State University):

    Some YouTube material -

    Complete Concertos for Strings, Brilliant Classics -
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqniEr0plOI
    Gracious, pleasant music - I don't mean to 'damn with faint praise'.

    Sonata no. 5 in C major, on piano -
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7WlZN3qAQI
    I'm not generally one for baroque keyboard music on piano, but I loved this.

    Te Deum -
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=de...N&index=7&t=0s
    Just beautiful.

    Harpsichord Concerto in C Minor:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJsR4AF0OWo
    Dramatic - it carried me away.

    Plus an opera here - Baldassare Galuppi. "Il Filosofo di Campagna" Opera
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGVgaO73f64
    Lively & enjoyable as far as I watched (half-way through) - it was a blurred and creaky video.

    The above post presents a fine selection of Galuppi’s work. I would add that his harpsichord concerti are some of the most inventive and gallant I’ve heard.
