Plenty to write home about and to listen to! According to Tartini the singing manner of playing cantabile required slurring same bow for multiple notes and coherence, as distinct from sonabile. Tartini certainly was a master of music with a descriptive force that could arouse emotional states in the listener.
Truthfulness of expression was everything. According to his contemporaries, Tartini often drew inspiration from the poems of Petrarch and the romantic writings of Metastasio. Tartini modestly put his verses into cipher, so that his feelings were expressed in the music alone. Tartini had a keen interest in Italian and Slavonic folk songs and dances, hence much of his music reflected their simple, lively tunes and enchanting rhythms. There is a story that tells of how the impressionable composer once heard some Venetian Gondoliers singing a song with words by the 16 th century Italian poet, Torquato Tasso.
Tartini put down the song and allegedly used it in a movement of a solo violin sonata and wrote the Tasso text under the notes. Tartini dedicated considerable attention to folk songs in his Treatise on Music , written in In his youth Tartini listened to and absorbed the songs of Croats and Slovenes. The final movement of his violin concerto D. Violin Concerto in A Minor, D. Born the fourth of six children to Florentine merchant, Giovanni Antonio Tartini and a girl from a family in Pirano dating back to the 15 th century, Caterina Zangrando; little Giuseppe grew up with his siblings in Pirano, a small, pretty town on the Adriatic coast now part of Slovenia.
Statue of Tartini in the square of his home town Pirano. He was influenced by both Italian and Slavonic culture of the baroque period. Giovanni actually intended for Giuseppe to become a priest and prepared him for an ecclesiastical career. It seems that Tartini quickly began to out-perform his first music teacher, Julio di Terni, and developed mastery of the violin largely through his own efforts and the study of other prominent violinists of his time.
He studied Corelli and listened attentively to the likes of Veracini, and divided his time between law and music studies as well as a penchant for fencing. This did not go down well with her influential family and Tartini fled to Assisi, having also incurred the wrath of his own family, who cut off all financial support.
There are also claims that whilst in seclusion in Assisi Tartini took musical instruction from Bohuslav Cernohorsky — nicknamed Padre Boemo , a noted Czech composer, theorist and head of the 18 th century Czech school of composition, who had also tutored Christoph Willibald Gluck.
Tartini returned to Padua in as a mature artist and versatile musician. By this time he was well known throughout Europe and was invited to perform in Prague by an influential member of the Hapsburg dynasty and a big supporter of the arts, Count Kinsky. The success of his countrymen Scarlatti and Geminiani in foreign courts may have hastened his decision to go to Prague, but because of his early exposure to Slavonic folk tunes the trip most likely excited him and represented an opportunity to further study Slavic music.
He travelled with his friend and first cellist at Padua, Antonio Vandini. The role of cello accompaniment was quite important in the absence of a harpsichord or keyboard instrument. Tartini and Vandini were close friends for over fifty years, and Tartini wrote several cello concertos for him.
After he returned to Padua in he rarely left, and besides his performances in Venice his last major concert tour was a trip to Rome in after an invitation from the cardinal to play in the presence of Pope Clement XII. Tartini founded the Paduan Violin School a year or so after his return from Prague, which he directed for more than forty years. Antonio Capri, who was his biographer states that over seventy of his pupils became violinists of note in the history of violin playing.
And with all of this he has nothing heavy in his playing. From reading about his legacy I have assumed that he was equally as good at teaching as he was at performing and composing! His respected writings qualified him as the eminent music scholar of 18 th century Italian violin music; so you could say he had many strings to his bow! To increase the tone, press harder on the bow with the fingers and also press down the strings more firmly with the fingers of the other hand. Tartini also fluted the wood of the bow.
Tartini discovered that in order to enrich the tone it was necessary to lengthen the bow which increased its flexibility and enabled a broader range of expression in bowing technique. Despite its title the variations also challenge left hand activity and require perfect coordination of movement from both hands! It highlights his exhaustive knowledge of the many modes of expression of the violin and serves as a kind of compendium of violin technique in the 18 th century. The Art of Bowing was adopted by many prominent 18 th and 19 th century violinists such as Joseph Szigeti and Fritz Kreisler who made arrangements for their own performance.
His Treatise on Ornaments was thought to have been written between and when he was highly active both as a performer and teacher. It contains his ideas on different kinds of grace notes, trills, tremolos and mordents and various ways of using them. Regarding mastering the trill at different speeds he wrote:. Happy listening!
