Sinfonia a 3 in A minor, W-K30

composer

 
The first movement of Lelio Colista’s Sinfonia a 3 in A minor for two violins and continuo, W-K30, acts as a prelude to the Sinfonia proper. By this means the work begins with the concertino alone and the overwhelming effect of the first tutti is greatly enhanced (a procedure inspired by the familiar introductions to other works by Monteverdi and Muffat).

Le premier mouvement de la Sinfonia a 3 en la mineur pour deux violons et continuo, W-K30 de Lelio Colista fait ainsi office de prélude à la Sinfonia proprement dite. De cette façon, l’œuvre s’ouvre sur le concertino seul et l’irrésistible effet du premier tutti s’en trouve considérablement renforcé (un procédé inspiré des introductions bien connues d’autres œuvres de Monteverdi et de Muffat).

Français: Hypérion

In dieser opernhaften „Rekonstruktion“ dient der erste Satz von Lelio Colistas Sinfonia a 3 in a-Moll für zwei Violinen und Continuo, W-K30 als Vorspiel zur eigentlichen Sinfonia. Das Werk beginnt also mit dem Concertino allein, und der überwältigende Effekt des ersten Tutti wird dadurch enorm verstärkt (ein Prozess, der durch die bekannten Einleitungen zu Werken von Monteverdi und Muffat inspiriert wurde).

Deutsch: Renate Wendel

Così, nella mia ideale ricostruzione di un’opera forse mai realizzata scenicamente all’epoca, il primo movimento della Sinfonia in la minore a 2 violini e basso a 3, W-K30 di Lelio Colista funge da preludio alla Sinfonia vera e propria, permettendoci di iniziare l’ascolto con il solo concertino e di aumentare l’effetto dirompente del primo tutti (ho preso ispirazione per questo procedimento dalle ben note prefazioni di Monteverdi e Muffat alle loro opere).
