On the frontispiece of the first volume, after the title, he informs us that these volumes represent the continuation of the Recueils d'airs serieux et it boire des diffirents auteurs, that had been published monthly since by his father Christophe Ballard. These books contained mostly French airs written by French composers, but also Italian airs written by both Italian and French authors. Writings of Brossard, Couperin and Corrette spoke about concerts ofItalian instrumental music in Paris from the last decade of the 17 th century onwards, giving evidence of a "performance practice" in which French musicians were captivated by the Italian style.
He probably feared their increasing success in Paris, promoted by the skilful cardinal Mazarin. It was the beginning of a century of querelles. Theoreticians did not miss the opportunity to make their voices heard: the matter was ample, interesting, and not far from political interests! In the abbe Raguenet published the Parallele des [taliens et des Franfois, followed by the response of Lecerf de la Vieville in , Comparaison de la musique italienne et de la musique franfoise.

On the general topic of french querelles see also Georgia Cowart, The origins of modern musical criticism. French and Italian music, , Ann Arbour On the contrary, Italian music never disappeared from the French stage. Jean Donneau de Vise, a man of letters who founded the monthly Mercure Calant in , was among the first publishers ofItalian airs in Paris.
Between and he published in his journal six Italian airs, some of which were extracts from contemporary Venetian operas. Charpentier's Medie of introduces an Italian character singing the air "Chi teme d'amore" at the end of the second act;ll in Collasse's Astree of we find three Italian airs; Campra's L'Europe galante of introduces for the first time in France a devise-aria, the well-known "Ad un cuore tutto geloso". From to Christophe Ballard published five volumes of Recueil des meilleurs airs italiens, that contain III airs on Italian texts, most of which were written by Italian authors.
Paolo Lorenzani, Motets aI, 2, 3, 4 et 5 parties, avec symphonies et bam continue, Paris Paolo Lorenzani, Airs italiens, Paris Charpentier, N. In appeared the first volume of the Recueil d'airs serieux et a boire. Despite the concept of gouts reunis being mostly related to instrumental music, it is nevertheless possible to find a similar concept in the preface ofJean-Baptiste Stuck's first book of French cantatas, published in The volume is dedicated to the duke Philippe d'Orleans, a renowned patron of Italian music in France during the first two decades of 18 th century.
Stuck declares that the Duke's inclination towards Italian music encouraged him "to mingle the taste of Italian music with French words. In the prologue, Italy and France, after a dispute in the style of the querelles, decide to combine the "harmonious sounds that surprise the ear and the spirit" and the "sweet and tender charme against which the heart is defenceless". In the following years it was performed separately as a divertissement at the Concert Spirituel , with the title L'union de la musique italienne et franr;,aise.
Each book of the collection contains about pages and is made up of four sections: Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn. Inside each section appear, in order, Musique latine motets on Latin texts , Musique jranr;,aise airs and drinking songs on French texts and Musique italienne Italian airs. From to the books are complete, while for only the Winter section is extant. Paris , pp. IS For the complete text of the prologue see Appendix I. According to his biographers, he came to Paris in , and also spent some years abroad, travelling in Italy, probably in Rome, between and , and between It is not a coincidence that he published his first Italian airs in Ch, Ballard's Recueil d'Airs serieux et a boire of ,18 and the others, cited above, in the Melanges, from He was not the only French musician who published Italian airs in the Melanges.
An Italian air by a female composer, Mlle Guedon de Preles, appeared in the volume of This source seems to be the first one revealing the first name of the composer, Anne, as hitherto she was indicated simply as Mademoiselle. In the Melanges she also published 39 French airs and 2 motets. Of course, admiration of foreign musical cultures was not expressed in only one way: it is interesting to mention the case of the Venetian composer Giuseppe Fedeli.
He represents a specimen of synthesis between French and Italian musical languages. He was the son of the better-known composer Carlo Fedeli, and arrived in Paris around From he published three books of Airs franfais dans le gout italien, some of which are contained also in the Melanges. Their Italian airs are interspersed in the 8 books. Most of the Italian airs are opera excerpts, even if the source never gives indications about the provenance of the music. Italian opera seria was never represented in Paris on the stage of the Academie Royale de Musique after the second half of the 17 th century.
Hence, it was not difficult to hear concerts of Italian music all over Paris. Towards , and over the following years, the Duke and Crozat made some attempts to invite to Paris Italian composers and singers from the Royal Academy in London. As discussed by Lowell Lindgren,24 in June Bononcini travelled to Paris, but last-minute financial problems prevented singers of the Royal Academy from going with him, except the contralto Anastasia Robinson. She came with the composer, and gave some recitals in private concerts. LVIII , pp. See pp. One air from Muzio Scevola, "Un mono, un lampo", was published in The group of Italian performers sang in Chantilly - in the palace of the Duke of Bourbon - and in Crozat's houses, probably introducing a repertoire of opera excerpts, among which there were probably airs from Handel's Giulio Cesare and Ottone.
At present, I am still unable to identify the provenance of the latter see figure. Handel, "Per delitto di donna incostante" in: Melanges de musique latine, franfaise et italienne, volume of , pp. The former, Si t'amo 0 caro, is an excerpt from Handel's Teseo of , It is interesting to notice that the Parisian print preceded by five years the Walsh edition of The favourite songs in the opera call'd Thessus and Amadis of , in which the air is included.
Steffani's vocal music, mostly the famous chamber duets, had already appeared in French editions between and , in the Recueil d'airs serieux et aboire de differents auteurs and in the Recueil des meilleurs airs italiens. First Scarlatti improved its style. Aux bords Napolitains la juste To Neapolitain coasts the just reknown renommee, Soutint de Mancini la vertu confirmee. Confirmed Mancini's skill. Par les tours deguisez d'un stile plus By the hidden techniques of a more nerveux, vigorous style, Bononcini de loin les devans;a tous deux.
Bononcini by far overtook them both. Ses basses et ses chants de mille graces His basses and songs shine by their brillent, thousand graces, De sons eticenlants ses violons petillent. His violins sparkle with brilliant sounds. Albinoni guide par l'unique plaisir Albinoni, led solely by pleasure, A Venise rep and les fruits d'un doux In Venice distributes the fruit of a loisir.
See also the Recueil des meilleurs airs italims, V, Paris , pp. However, they are important because they show on the one hand that in France there was a circulation of - and an acquaintance with - at least excerpts from Italian opera seria. On the other hand, they give evidence of a vivid exchange between French and Italian musical cultures.

Now what are you doing? These delicacies are the provender for the dark and gloomy days in the future. Dine at home on Christmas Eve when the Latin Quarter has decked its streets with eatables?

[fic] If Italian charms don't win them over
Trim your fur. Lead me to the absurd, outrageous razor. ALL Let's go. I know my trade. Rodolfo prende un lume ed apre l'uscio. Gli altri escono e scendono la scala. Tienti alla ringhiera. Rodolfo chiude l'uscio, pone il lume sulla tavola, e si mette a scrivere.
Ma straccia il foglio e getta via la penna. Rodolfo takes a light and opens the door. The others start down the stairs. Hold on to the railing. Rodolfo closes the door, sets his light on the table and tries to write. But he tears up the paper and throws the pen down. Bussano timidamente alla porta. Si sente male? There's a timid knock at the door. Who's there? You're not well? Va a prendere dell'acqua e ne spruzza il viso di lei. Che viso d'ammalata! Si sente meglio? Segga vicino al fuoco. La conduce a sedere presso al camino. She faints, and Rodolfo is just in time to support her and help her to a chair.
The key and the candlestick fall from her hands. He gets some water and sprinkles her face. How ill she looks! Are you better now? Come and sit by the fire. He helps her to a chair by the stove. Buona sera. La chiave della stanza dove l'ho lasciata?
I'm better now. Rodolfo lights her candle for her. Thank you. Good evening. Where have I left the key to my room? Torni ad accenderlo. Rodolfo accorre colla sua candela, ma avvicinandosi alla porta anche il suo lume si spegne e la camera rimane buia. Her candle goes out. Will you relight it? Rodolfo hastens to her with his light, but when he reaches the door, his candle goes out, too.
The room is dark. Now mine's out, too. And where can my key be? Cercano, tastando il pavimento colle mani. Trova la chiave, l'intasca. Not at all! They hunt, touching the floor with their hands. He finds the key and pockets it. Si alzano. Se la lasci riscaldar. Cercar che giova? Al buio non si trova. Chi son? Sono un poeta. Che cosa faccio? E come vivo? Per sogni e per chimere e per castelli in aria l'anima ho milionaria. Guided by her voice, Rodolfo pretends to search as he draws closer to her. Then his hand meets hers, and he holds it. They rise. Let me warm it for you.
What's the use of searching? We'll never find it in the dark. But luckily there's a moon, and she's our neighbour here. Just wait, my dear young lady, and meanwhile I'll tell you in a word who and what I am. Shall I? Who am I?

I'm a poet. My business? How do I live? I live. In my happy poverty I squander like a prince my poems and songs of love. In hopes and dreams and castles-in-the-air, I'm a millionaire in spirit. Talor dal mio forziere ruban tutti i gioielli due ladri: gli occhi belli.
V'entrar con voi pur ora ed i miei sogni usati, ed i bei sogni miei tosto si dileguar! Or che mi conoscete parlate voi. Deh parlate. Chi siete? Vi piaccia dir? A tela o a seta ricamo in casa e fuori. Lei m'intende? But sometimes my strong-box is robbed of all its jewels by two thieves: a pair of pretty eyes. They came in now with you and all my lovely dreams, my dreams of the past, were soon stolen away.
But the theft doesn't upset me, since the empty place was filled with hope. Now that you know me, it's your turn to speak. Who are you? Will you tell me? My story is brief. I embroider silk and satin at home or outside. I'm tranquil and happy, and my pastime is making lilies and roses. I love all things that have gentle magic, that talk of love, of spring, that talk of dreams and fancies - the things called poetry Do you understand me? Sola, mi fo il pranzo da me stessa. Non vado sempre a messa, ma prego assai il Signor.
Germoglia in un vaso una rosa, foglia a foglia l'aspiro. Altro di me non le saprei narrare. Sono la sua vicina che la vien fuori d'ora a importunare. Non senti? I live all by myself and I eat alone. I don't often go to church, but I like to pray. I stay all alone in my tiny white room, I look at the roofs and the sky.
But when spring comes the sun's first rays are mine. April's first kiss is mine, is mine! The sun's first rays are mine! A rose blossoms in my vase, I breathe its perfume, petal by petal. So sweet is the flower's perfume. But the flowers I make, alas, the flowers I make, alas, alas, have no scent. What else can I say? I'm your neighbour, disturbing you at this impossible hour. Can't you hear? You slow-coach! Rodolfo, impaziente, va alla finestra per rispondere. Dalla finestra aperta entrano i raggi lunari, rischiarando la camera.
Siamo in due. Andate da Momus, tenete il posto. Ci saremo tosto. Momus, Momus. Rodolfo, impatient, goes to the window to answer. When the window is opened, the moonlight comes in, lighting up the room. There's two of us. Go to Momus and get a table. We'll be there soon. Quietly, discreetly, we're off. Nel bacio freme amor! Tu sol comandi, amor! Rodolfo la bacia. He's found his poem at last. He contemplates her, in ecstasy. Oh, sweet face bathed in the soft moonlight. I see in you the dream I'd dream forever!
Love, you rule alone! Love trembles in our kiss! Love, you alone rule! Rodolfo kisses her. No, please! It would be so fine to stay here. Outside it's cold. My love! Colline presso alla bottega di una rappezzatrice. Schaunard sta comprando una pipa e un corno. La Vigilia di Natale. Caldi i marroni. Ninnoli, croci. Torroni e caramelle. Fiori alle belle. Panna montata. Fringuelli, passeri. Latte di cocco! Colline is nearby at a rag-woman's stand. Schaunard is buying a pipe and a trumpet. Marcello is pushed here and there by the throng.

Dal mio cervel sbocciano i canti, dalle sue dita sbocciano i fior - dall'anime esultanti sboccia l'amor. Arriva nel piazzale Parpignol, spingendo un carretto tutto a fronzoli e fiori.
Col carretto tutto a fior! Voglio la tromba, il cavallin! Il tambur, tamburel Voglio il cannon, voglio il frustin, dei soldati il drappel. As songs flow from my brain, the flowers bloom in her hands, and in joyful spirits love blossoms also. Parpignol arrives in the square, pushing a barrow covered with frills and flowers. Here is Parpignol! With his cart all decked with flowers! I want the horn, the toy horse! The drum! The tambourine! I want the cannon; I want the whip, I want the troop of soldiers. A casa, a letto!

A casa! A letto, razza di furfanti, a letto! What are you doing here now? Go home to bed, you noisy things. Slaps will be the least you'll get A BOY I want the horn, the toy horse A lady's with us. Dei soldati il drappel. Escono, seguendo il carretto di Parpignol. Coi miei capelli bruni ben si fonde. Ora colui che legge dentro a un core sa l'amore Si crede, spera, e tutto bello appare. The drums! A troop of soldiers! They run off, following Parpignol. It goes well with my dark hair. I've longed for such a bonnet for months Anyone who can read the heart's secret knows love You hope and believe, and all seems beautiful.
I've offended him! A toast! ALL Away with brooding, raise your glass. We'll drink. Siamo in auge! Che toeletta! Musetta si ferma, accompagnata dal vecchio, pomposo Alcindoro. Musetta prende posto ad un'altra tavola del Momus. No, no, non ci sta She's done well for herself! What a dress! Musetta stops, accompanied by the old and pompous Alcindoro. No, it's not proper. Cognome - Tentazione! Per sua vocazione fa la rosa dei venti; gira e muta soventi d'amanti e d'amore Who is she? Her first name's Musetta. Her last name's Temptation. Her occupation is being a leaf in the wind Always turning, changing her lovers and her loves Like the screech-owl she's a bird of prey.

With that stuttering old man, it's Musetta herself! Ha ha ha ha ha! Che mi parli di perdono? Why speak of forgiveness? Cosi l'effluvio del desio tutta m'aggira. Felice mi fa, felice mi fa. So ben: le angoscie tue non le vuoi dir, ma ti senti morir. This onrush of desire surrounds me. It delights me, it delights me. I know: you won't admit that you're in torment, but it's killing you.

Marcello will give in! The flirt ran off I'd never land myself in such a situation! Marcello is vanquished! Be quiet! Spento amor non risorge, ecc. Quell'infelice, ecc. The play is stupendous!
