Biber's Fidicinum sacro-profanum … attempts a synthesis of sacred and profane, combining dances and contrapuntal rigor, if not artifice, under the umbrella of Biber's musical personality. These 12 sonatas … suggest Purcell's chunky vigor and exploratory fancy more distinctly than Corelli's elegantly restrained and serenely logical Fortspinnung. … Les Plaisirs du Parnasse … has tapped Biber's ingenious combinations of sounds, as rich and diverse in its own way as Vivaldi's. But rhythms assume an equal - and at times, even greater - significance. The detailed recorded sound possesses a winning depth and richness. Enthusiastically recommended to the ever-growing number of Biber's admirers as well as to more general listeners. (Robert Maxham, Fanfare, Jan/Feb 2009)

"…But, with his Fidicinium, Biber exploits the subject in a wholly innovative fashion, thanks to multiple musical and symbolic references, thereby asserting his status as one of the major figures of his era." - David Plantier

This is a gem of a CD. It's a well-chosen, well-performed and well-presented anthology of mid-Baroque German sacred cantatas. Bass Peter Kooij and the seven-person L'Armonia Sonora are directed by gambist Mieneke Van der Velden. They have a close and warm affinity not only with one another, but also for the music; it's music as varied as it's beautiful. Its rich, sustained sonorities will stay with you long after you have finished the uplifting experience of listening to the CD. Released on the enterprising Ramée label De profundis clamavi comprises seven sumptuous examples of the music written in the north German Länder in the period after the Thirty Years War. It's music which not so much 'reflects' that profound conflict, as is 'affected' by it – weighed down with detached regret and unselfconscious resignation.

The Purcell Quartet appears to be recording all of Heinrich Biber's string chamber music and their flexible lineup – Jane Rogers joins on viola to fill out the fifth part here – certainly facilitates Biber's rather unique requirements. The main concentration of Purcell Quartet's attention to Biber was in the 1990s; between 1994 and 1997, it recorded, in quick succession, the Harmonia artificiosa ariosa, Sonatae tam aris quam Aulis servientes, and the Fidicunium Sacro-Profanum. With this recording of the Mensa sonora, the only string chamber works Biber left that the Purcell Quartet hasn't gotten to are mostly solo sonatas – the Mystery Sonatas, the sonatas of 1681, and a number of miscellaneous sonatas and occasional pieces, not all of which are squarely landed in the camp of Biber and all of which are smaller than they are.

René Girard - La violenza e il sacro

«È criminale uccidere la vittima perché essa è sacra … ma la vittima non sarebbe sacra se non la si uccidesse». Questo terribile, paralizzante circolo vizioso si incontra subito, quando si esamina la realtà del sacrificio. Di fronte a esso l’ambivalenza tanto frequentemente evocata dal pensiero moderno ha l’aria di un pio eufemismo, che malamente cela il segreto non già di una pratica estinta, ma di un fenomeno che ossessiona il nostro mondo: la violenza – e il suo oscuro, inscindibile legame con il sacro. Nesso tanto più stretto proprio là dove, come nella società attuale, si pretende di conoscere il sacro soltanto attraverso i libri di etnologia: del sacro si può dire infatti, osserva Girard, che esso è innanzitutto «ciò che domina l’uomo tanto più agevolmente quanto più l’uomo si crede capace di dominarlo»…

Il Corano. Il Libro sacro della civiltà islamica

Accostarsi alla cultura islamica senza conoscere il Corano è forse anche più riduttivo che guardare alla storia dell’Occidente senza tenere conto della Bibbia. Resterebbe precluso, al di là della conoscenza degli articoli di fede, l’accesso alle letterature, al pensiero, al diritto e agli usi e costumi di un’area immensa che da quattordici secoli ruota attorno a questo testo sacro. Un grande monumento letterario, oltre che un codice religioso, con una straordinaria carica evocativa.

Freiburger Barockorchester Consort

The Freiburg musicians seem to revel in the wonderfully varied sonorities inherent in Biber’s consort textures, responding sympathetically to the composer’s colourfully imaginative tonal palette. The sonatas with trumpet are likely to make instant appeal but it is the more sorrowful utterances of Schmelzer which make a deeper impression on my senses. A fine release. (Nicholas Anderson, Gramophone, July 1996)
