Right from the birth of polyphony, the motet functioned as the prime vehicle for artistic, religious music, retaining its popularity into the Baroque period and remaining a genre in which composers liked to display their skills. This also applies to the Italian baroque composers Porpora and Vivaldi, two masters of opera and motet. Porpora wrote the virtuoso 'In caelo stelle clare' in 1745 for Graziola, one of the leading soloists in the Ospedaletto of Venice. The impressive 'In furore' is a real masterpiece by Vivaldi. More of a cantata than a motet, the sadness is, as it were, musically embraced. Brilliant motets of this calibre also inspired later generations of composers. Among these was Mozart, who, with his 'Exsultate, jubilate', wrote a three-part motet that appears to owe a lot to the opera aria and the concerto. So watch out for the interpretation of the experienced musicians of Il Giardino Armonico and the vocal brilliance of Julia Lezhneva - barely out of the cradle, but already tipped as a 'grande dame'!

Carlos Rego De Singel is the only concert hall in Belgium that has been inviting some of the best Baroque Music performers consistently over the years. I keep numerous unforgettable recallings namely when Philippe Herreweghe was keen on Bach cantatas. It's always a pleasure to attend quality live performances. This times Il Giardino Armonico produces itself with a soprano. Why not try to invite them, next time, with Cecilia Bartoli ? They worked together, not so long ago, for the fabulous "Sacrificium" CD and film. I know the tickets will be costly but I also know it will be worth while attending such a concert. Thank you in advance
