The production highlights the combination of baroque music and grand architectural buildings. The special on the public broadcaster features works by renowned composers performed on organs produced in Spain and Portugal that are installed in historic buildings in France and Brazil.
The musical reveals a counterpoint between baroque organs in performances on the instrument, performed by experienced artists. The French soloist Jean-Luc Ho assumes the keys at the Church of Saint Éloi, in the city of Fresnes, while the Brazilian organist Robson Bessa shows his talent at the Matriz de Santo Antônio, in the Minas Gerais municipality of Tiradentes.
The most recent attraction of the ninth season of Partituras reveals a repertoire of classics that includes themes by Antonio de Cabezón (1510-1566) and Johann-Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), chosen for the interpretation of the organist Jean-Luc Ho.
The instrument that the Frenchman plays is a Spanish organ from 1768. Commissioned for a convent, the piece was dismantled during the renovation that restored its medieval characteristics. The equipment has been located since 2014 in the church in the Fresnes region, considered a historic monument in France.
A great landmark of Baroque and Rococo architecture and art, the Matriz de Santo Antônio is one of the national heritage sites in Tiradentes. With a sound full of contrasts, the Portuguese organ of 1785 does not have trumpets or pedals. The sound that echoes from the instrument’s tubes reflects the brilliance and variety of the Iberian school.
For the presentation of the special concert, Robson Bessa performs works by European composers such as Pablo Bruna (1611-1679), Manuel Rodrigues Coelho (1555-1635), Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725) and Carlos Seixas (1704-1742).
