BERIO, Luigi, 1924-2003

Cronaca del luogo. Azione musicale. Testo di Talia P. Berio (1999). Partitura.
Milan, 2006. 32 x 46 cm. iv, 229 pp. Line-cut of the composer’s fair copy full score. Commissioned by the Salzburg Festival in 1999, Berio’s “Cronaca del luogo” (Chronical of the Place) consists of a prologue and 5 scenes set within a biblical landscape. It is the composer’s celebration of a special place—the “Felsenreitschule”, a stage carved out of a rock on a mountainside—and an extraordinary voice, expressed through the composer’s distinct music-theater called “azione musicale”. The work’s most dominant visible element is the musically ever-changing wall (stage) of immutable memories—where the story of Jericho, the tower of Babel, etc., unfold and define the place or luogo, chronicling through sound and light the varying manifestations of the presence of God in human life. Cloth. $269 [item no.8706]


BERTONI, Ferdinando, 1725-1813

Orfeo ed Euridice. Partitura autografa in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Paolo Cattelan.

BIANCHI, Francesco, 1752-1810

La morte di Cesare. Partitura dell’opera in facsimile. Edizione dei libretti. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Piero Weiss. [Brussels Royal Conservatory Library, Ms. 2046 K].
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 25. Milan, 1999. Oblong, 29 x 23 cm, 2 vols, lxxxviii, 654 pp. Line-cut of a copyist’s fair copy (full score) of this melodramma tragico by Gaetano Sertor and Francesco Bianchi, representing the transformation of the opera seria at the end of the century. The text of the libretto is based on Voltaire's drama-writing style bent to political propaganda, while the score corresponds to the theatrical revision of the vocal registers. The most important features of this Morte di Cesare are both the conservation of the manuscript of the 1789 version of Jacobinical and the variants used—by the authors themselves—for the creation of the first performance in the second Republic of Venice, the democratica one, at Teatro La Fenice, in 1797. Commentary in It-Eng. Cloth. $821 (more info... ) [item no.7742]


CAVALLI, Francesco, 1602-1676

[& A. Stradella] Il novello Giasone. Partitura in facsimile ed edizione dei libretti. A cura di Nicola Usula. Saggio introduttivi di Fausta Antonucci, Lorenzo Bianconi e Nicola Usula.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 3. Milan, 2013. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, 2 vols, cxcii, 567 pp. Line-cut reproduction of the Naples copy. Giasone, or Jason, was Cavalli’s tenth and most popular stage work, the most frequently performed of all 17th-c. operas. Linen. $291 [item no.9354]


CESTI, Antonio, 1623-1669

Il Tito. Partitura in facsimile, ed. del libretto, saggio introduttivo a cura di Giada Viviani.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 5. Milan, 2012. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xc, 306 pp. Presented for the first time during the 1666 carnival at the Venetian theater of St. John & St. Paul, “Il Tito” of Nicolò Beregan and Antonio Cesti is an opera frequently cited in the musicological literature of the last 40 years. Surviving archival materials document the genesis of the score with an unusual precision and have clarified many details necessary for reconstructing the Venetian theater production system of the second “Seicento”. In spite of the importance of the work—a collaboration between a not-so-prolific yet widely appreciated librettist and one of the most popular composers of that epoch, there has never been a complete study of the musical and literary sources. The commentary to this new Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta volume finally fills this lacuna, reproducing the oldest and most complete manuscript score of Tito (preserved in the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana) together with a critical edition of the libretto and a comparative study of the three other musical sources that have survived.

COCCHI, Gioacchino, c.1715-1804

[Archivio Storico Ricordi]. L’Arte Armonica, I/3. Milan, 1999. Oblong, 33 x 25 cm, 147, 434 pp. Deluxe full-color facsimile of the full “working” score, issued on the occasion of the two hundred anniversary of the composer’s birth. The history and genesis of this fascinating work, premiered at Teatro alla Scala 17 April 1843 is carefully analyzed by Philip Gossett’s companion work. Limited deluxe edition with binding that reproduces the original; handsome clamshell case in green cloth with pasted label. $825 (more info... ) [item no.7802]


GALUPPI, Baldassare, 1706-1785

Artaserse. Partitura in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Francesca Menchelli-Buttini.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 20. Milan, 2010. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, lxvi, 291 pp. Line-cut of the autograph score (Berlin, Staatsbibliothek, Mus. ms. Autogr. B. Galuppi 3). First performed at the Burgtheater in Vienna on 27 January 1749, Artaserse is notable for bearing witness to the success that the composer enjoyed outside his native land, for using the poetry and drama of one of Pietro Metastasio’s most famous librettos and for giving a new form to the close of the first act by placing a quartet there. Of the surviving copies of the score, the autograph is the earliest source, as can be seen from the number of deletions and corrections that it contains, as well as some alternative readings of words and notes.

GAUDIO, Antonio dal, fl.1669-1682

Almerico in Cipro. Partitura dell’opera in facsimile, edizione del libretto, saggio introduttivo a cura di Giovanni Morelli.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 7. Milan, 2005. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, lxvi, 207 pp. Line-cut of a contemporary ms copy (full score), and first edition of the libretto. Almerico in Cipro is a representative opera from a long period in which the Venetian Republic experienced military and political setbacks; the opera’s sentimental and extremely intricate plot, containing many absurdities, is woven around royal characters from the Mediterranean area. The musical treatment seems to hint at the emergent “da capo” aria soon to blossom. Although there is a lack of any relationship between the contemporary historical events that affected the life of the city and state (here, the war in the Peloponnese) and the fictional stories of the opera, there does exist a typically Venetian allegorical dimension.

LOTTI, Antonio, 1667-1740

L’umiltà coronata in Ester. Partitura dell’oratorio in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Laura Zanella. [Ms. 17671, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vienna].
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 11. Milan, 2004. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xxvii, 243 pp. Line-cut of a contemporary ms copy (full score). Pietro Pariati’s oratorio set to music by Antonio Lotti and dedicated to Esther, Racine’s famous character, was composed in 1714. Intended for performance in Vienna, it was in reality Venetian by birth, being a remake of an oratorio performed in 1712 at the Mendicanti Hospital, entitled “Humilitas exaltata seu Esther regina”. The opera retains the strong “theatrical” character of its origins (implicit, but not over the top), so typical of the Venetian Hospital oratorios. This opera is a forerunner of Zeno’s “sacred musical tragedy”. Indeed, if one considers the specific musical form of Lotti’s truly dramatic intonation, it is a specimen of one of the first steps in the process that very gradually led to the genre of oratorio to merge with the theatrical repertoire over the course of the 1700s, as evinced by the great Pre-Romantic and Romantic “sacred dramas”.

MATTHESON, Johann, 1681-1764

Nerone - Nero. Partitura in facsimile. Edizione dei libretti. A cura di Francesco Giuntini. Saggi introduttivi di Francesco Giuntini & di Reinhard Strohm.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 14. Milan, 2013. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, cxxi, 129 pp. Nerone, a “tragedia per musica” by Agostino Piovene, received its first staging in Venice in 1721 with music by Giuseppe Maria Orlandini, but won great success two years later in Hamburg in the version by Johann Mattheson, who retained the original arias, translated the recitatives into German and provided new musical settings for them, and added a few pieces of his own composition. In addition to a score corresponding to the Hamburg version (D-B, Mus. ms. 16370), the volume contains editions of the Italian libretto of 1721 and the German one of 1723. The opera is one of the most advanced manifestations of the reformist tendencies of the early eighteenth century: this is a genuine tragedy, inspired by the Britannicus of Racine, that concludes with a simple recitative given to Agrippina accusing her assassins before her killing. Linen. $216 (more info... ) [item no.9326]


MONTEVERDI, Claudio, 1567-1643

L’Incoronazione di Poppea. Facsimile della partitura di Napoli. Edizione del libretto a cura di Lorenzo Bianconi. Saggi introduttivi di Gino Benzoni e Alessandra Chiarelli.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 2. Milan, 2011. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, xcvi, 233 pp. Within the history of opera L’incoronazione di Poppea (Venice, 1643), with a libretto by Giovan Francesco Busenello and music attributed to Claudio Monteverdi, holds a special place, being the very first opera on a historical subject: instead of Daphne, Orpheus or Adonis, we meet the emperor Nero, the empress Octavia, the courtesan Sabina Poppea and the philosopher Seneca. A mocking cynicism pervades the opera, which is drawn from the Annals of Tacitus and from a Latin tragedy attributed to Seneca (Octavia): one recognizes in it the imprint of the philosophical and moral libertinism cultivated by the Accademia degli Incogniti. This volume reproduces the manuscript score preserved in Naples. Like the manuscript in the Biblioteca Marciana (already reproduced in facsimile in 1938), this one is the product of several hands: Francesco Cavalli, perhaps Benedetto Ferrari and probably an unknown Neapolitan composer. In his introductory essay, the historian Gino Benzoni delineates the reception during the 17th c. of Tacitus, the main basis of the opera. Alessandra Chiarelli clarifies the complex web of sources for the music and libretto. Lorenzo Bianconi contributes editions of the “scenario” (1643), the text as its author chose to publish it (1656) and the variants of the Neapolitan libretto (1651).

ORLANDINI, Giuseppe Maria, 1676-1760

Nerone - Nero. Partitura in facsimile. Edizione dei libretti. A cura di Francesco Giuntini. Saggi introduttivi di Francesco Giuntini & di Reinhard Strohm.

PAISIELLO, Giovanni, 1740-1816

I giuochi d’Agrigento. Partitura dell’opera in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Lorenzo Mattei.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 27. Milan, 2007. Oblong, 29 x 23 cm, 2 vols, lvii, 604 pp. Line-cut of a contemporary manuscript copy. I giochi di Agrigento by Paisiello and Pepoli was the work that inaugurated the Fenice Opera House in Venice, on May 16, 1792. As Mattei writes in his essay, the work became the archetype of a ‘neo-classical’ species of opera capable of uniting the monumentality of a façade to a pathetic-sentimental (already romantic) substratum, and of introducing formal innovation beneath a stylistic and dramatic surface that was backward-looking and grandiose in the outward appearance. Introduction in It. Linen. $348 (more info... ) [item no.8819]


PALLAVICINO, Carlo, b.?-1688

Messalina. Partitura dell’ opera in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Saggio introduttivo a cura di Eleanor Selfridge-Field.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 8. Milan, 2001. Oblong, 29 x 22 cm, lxxiv, 224, ii pp. Line-cut of a contemporary ms copy (full score). Messalina is a masterpiece of 17th-c. theatre for its mixing of the genres of comedy, satire, drama and portrayal of historical characters in the playfully pornographic manner of late 17th-c. Venetian opera. It also represents a key moment for exemplifying and establishing the form of the da capo aria. The score is accompanied by an edition of the libretto. Introduction in Eng.

PORTUGAL (=PORTOGALLO), Marco Antonio da Fonseca, 1762-1830

Gli orazi e i curiazi. Partitura dell’opera in facsimile. Edizione del libretto. Catalogo cronologico degli spettacoli a Venezia (1897-1815). A cura di Maria Giovanna Miggiani.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 29. Milan, 2003. Oblong, 30 x 23 cm, 2 vols, ccclxiii, xxiii, 541 pp. Line-cut of a contemporary ms (full score). Cimarosa's “Gli Orazi e i Curiazi” represents the climax of his search for a “new genre” in Italian operatic tragedy and, at the same time, the setting and basic lyrics are emblematic of the development of new vocal personalities and new theatrical roles found in new vocal styles, especially that of the dramatic penetrating contralto, Giuseppina Grassini, and that of the new young heroic tenor, Matteo Babbini. The huge, long-lasting success of this work is known to all, but what's less known is the fact that the La Fenice Theatre and the new Napoleonic Ferrara Theatre jointly produced a second setting to music of Sografi's libretto for the same singers, but with the music of a promising young composer, Marco Portogallo, whose style foreshadowed evolution in the so-called pre-Rossini style of serious vocal dramatic composition. The success of Cimarosa's Orazi was also thanks to many grafted sections with Portogallo's intonation, favoured and preferred by the singers. The aim of this facsimile of Portogallo's work is to provide a glimpse into the evolution of the Italian pre-Romantic opera drawing on original materials showing the dynamics of its birth.

Petite messe solennelle. Facsimile del manoscritto / Facsimile of the Manuscript.
Milan, 2011. Oblong, 37.5 x 29.5 cm. viii, 252 pp. Full-color reprduction of the original 1863 autograph including the separate parts for harmonium and second piano. Rossini composed two versions of this work, the first (reproduced here in facsimile) for “Twelve singers of three sexes, men, women and castrati... that is, eight for the choir, four soloists, in all twelve cherubim”. The Petite Messe solennelle was dedicated to the Contessa Louise Pillet-Will (the count and countess were close friends of Rossini), and the first performance inaugurated the splendid new residence that the count had commissioned in Paris. The use of two pianos and harmonium may at first seem odd but given its context as a salon piece is appropriate. Rossini composed hardly at all in the period 1829 to 1855 but after returning to Paris in 1855 wrote quite a few works for private audiences. He wittingly referred to them as Péchés de vieillesse (‘sins of old age’), and wrote in the score of the Petite messe solennelle “Good God – behold completed this poor little Mass – is it indeed music for the blest [‘musique Sacrée’] that I have just written, or just some blessed music [‘Sacrée musique’]? Thou knowest well, I was born for comic opera. A little science, a little heart, that is all. So bless Thee and grant me Paradise! G Rossini – Passy 1863”.

Andromeda liberata, a Venetian pasticcio-serenata based on a libretto by Vincenzo Cassani (c.1677-c.1736), is a genre distinct from opera and the chamber cantata, rarely acted in costume in a purpose-built theater with scenery, and performed by singers reading from music in a stationary position in improvised surroundings. Although the team of composers responsible for the music is not recorded, the work is presumed to be by Porpora, Albinoni, Porta, and Lotti. Linen. $231 (more info... ) [item no.8727]

Tre intermezzi. Le rovine di Troia (Dragontana e Policrone), 1707; Melissa contenta, 1707-1708; Cuoco e Madama (La preziosa ridicola), 1724. Partiture in facsimile, edizione dei libretti, saggo introduttivo a cura di Francesca Menchelli-Buttini.
Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta, 10. Milan, 2008. Oblong, 29 x 23 cm,f lv, 219 pp. Line-cut of contemporary manuscript copies. This 10th volume in the series Drammaturgia Musicale Veneta consists of a facsimile edition of the scores for the intermezzi Le rovine di Troia (Dragontana e Policrone) by Antonio Lotti, Melissa contenta by Lotti or Francesco Gasparini, and Cuoco e Madama (La preziosa ridicola), whose attribution to Antonio Caldara is uncertain. The first two operas, performed at the Teatro San Cassiano, Venice, in 1707-1708, attest to the beginning of a genre, whereas the Viennese setting for Cuoco e Madama, dated 1724, is evidence of its dynamism and popularity. La preziosa ridicola had many revivals, such as the Rome première in 1712 and a production in Venice in 1719. As a consequence, the original scenario was constantly subject to variations, at times significant in terms of form and content. The facsimile reproductions of the ms scores are accompanied by the transcription of the librettos with, as is the modern custom, “notes on the text”, illustrating the general criteria and some specific solutions. The introductory essay comments on both the texts and the music, highlighting aspects such as the wide use of parody, meta-theatre, tradition, intertextuality and the very close relationship between La preziosa ridicola and the original by Molière.

Donizetti, Gaetano (new critical edition) Le convenienze ed inconvenienze teatrali. Dramma giocoso in un atto di Domenico Gilardni. Edizione critica a cura di Roger Parker e Anders Wiklund. Partitura.
Critical Edition of the Works of Gaetano Donizetti, [5]. Milan, 2002. 4º, 2 vols, xxxii, 669 pp. Le convenienze ed inconvenienze teatrali is surely one of history's wittiest operatic treatments of the foibles of opera itself: it depicts a rehearsal thrown into chaos by stage mother—played by a bass in woman's costume—who wishes her own daughter to upstage the prima donna. This critical edition is the first to assemble all versions of the opera with which Donizetti himself was involved. The base text is the second version performed in Naples in 1831; its musical numbers can be connected with by spoken dialogue or by contemporary recitatives, both provided here. In addition, extensive appendices contain all extant materials for the first version of 1827, as well as several pieces that Donizetti composed for revivals of the opera during the 1830s.

Donizetti, Gaetano (new critical edition) Dom Sébastien, roi de Portugal. Opéra en cinq actes di Eugène Scribe. Edizione critica a cura di Mary Ann Smart. Partitura.
Critical Edition of the Works of Gaetano Donizetti, [6]. Milan, 2003. 4º, 2 vols, xxxviii, 965 pp. Donizetti's moving and tragic opera Dom Sébastien, a full five-act grand opéra, was his last and perhaps most ambitious project. He had taken Paris by storm in previous years with a volley of triumphs and planned Dom Sébastien as an impressive and innovative artistic statement. Yet the project was plagued by demands for cuts and alterations during the rehearsal period. While the 1843 Paris premiere was a success, the dissatisfied composer made several changes for the opera's 1845 Vienna premiere. For the 1847 Milan production, however, changes and misreadings generated an altered version in Italian—the version commonly known today—and Donizetti's failing health prevented his involvement then or later. Recent musicological speculation about this distorted version has generated further misunderstanding. This new critical edition restores the original French text as Donizetti planned it and provides scholars and musicians with a definitive edition of the composer’s last great masterwork. Appendixes include his variants from the 1845 Viennese production, most notably the new ensemble piece added to the finale of the third act. Commentary in Eng. Cloth. $484 [item no.6549]

Donizetti, Gaetano (new critical edition) Linda di Chamounix. Melodramma in tre atti. Edizione criticia a cura di Gabriele Dotto. Partitura.
Critical Edition of the Works of Gaetano Donizetti, [7]. Milan, 2006. 4º, 2 vols, lviii, 845 pp. Linda di Chamounix provides a fascinating case study of Donizetti's habit of frequent rewriting, as it underwent three significant revisions in the year following its 1842 premiere. This critical edition, using sources that in some cases have never before been studied, allows performers and scholars to reconstruct all three versions. Appendixes include a contemporary orchestration of the stage band part and an early version of the first-act tenor aria which was replaced before the premiere and never performed. Cloth. $484 [item no.6638]


Donizetti, Gaetano (new critical edition) Pia de’Tolomei. Edizione criticia a cura di Giorgio Pagannone. Partitura.
Critical Edition of the Works of Gaetano Donizetti, [8]. Milan, 2006. 4º, 2 vols, c.850 pp. By the mid 1830s, as he began to dominate European stages, Gaetano Donizetti was pushing the boundaries of heightened romanticism in music, seeking texts that featured increasingly melodramatic and violent emotions and the savage consequences of irrational passion. Pia de’ Tolomei ranks among his more disquietingly intense and fast-paced works. As one historian has observed, there is ample reason to recognize Pia as one of the most strikingly pre-Verdian of all Donizetti’s operas. Yet Pia was also a protean text, having no stable form, but changing in shape according to each new venue, as Donizetti returned to the score on a number of occasions. This critical edition reconstructs the premiere Venice version (1837) as the base text, but it offers in appendixes the possibility of reconstructing the two other principal versions, of Senigallia (1837) and Naples (1838).

Donizetti, Gaetano (new critical edition) Deux hommes et une femme. Edizione critica a cura di Paolo Rossini e Francesco Bellotto. Partitura.
Critical Edition of the Works of Gaetano Donizetti, [9]. Milan, 2008. 4º, 384 pp. First performed a dozen years after the composer’s death, Deux Hommes et une femme (Rita) has become, in the last 50 years, one of the more frequently performed of all of Donizetti’s operas. Yet the version known to modern audiences reflects apocryphal additions introduced for the posthumous premiere. This new critical edition establishes for the first time the version of the opera conceived by Donizetti. In particular, it restores the French-language spoken dialogue—reconstructed thanks to a recently discovered MS libretto with autograph annotations—dialogue around which the composer constructed this delightful opéra comique. The edition is based on Donizetti's autograph manuscript, which allows for the part of Pepé to be sung either by a tenor or a baritone, and which restores many important details that were lost or ignored when the opera came to be revived.
