VOX NOSTRA WITH VLAD SMISHKEWYCH

Ornamentation would seem to be part and parcel not only of traditional music but also music from the Renaissance through Baroque periods. What we know as ornamentation is actually a centenary, even millenary tradition-with the distinct disadvantage that the further we go, the harder it is to know what ornamentation was executed. But as far as the 17th century is concerned, we are lucky to have several treatises and documents to help us along, and artists Stephen Devine and Oliver Webber have recently released an album on Resonus Records which shows the beauty and variety in the Italian seicento. On 'Con arte e maestria: Virtuoso violin ornamentation from the Italian Baroque', this duo explores the art of diminution, in which simple melodies were given exquisitely virtuosic embellishments, effectively creating new works. Ornamented creations by Francesco Rognoni, Bovicelli, Ortiz and many others will form the core of this Sunday's programme, which will dip into ornamentation in Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical periods to explore how works have been constantly renewed throughout the history of music by way of ornamentation and embellishment.
