:icongrumpybeethovenplz::iconsaysplz:Primo Fidelio, e poi le Proteste!

Various newspapers spin & report it through different visors:

www.ansa.it/sito/notizie/cultu…
www.lastampa.it/2014/12/07/spe…
www.tgcom24.mediaset.it/2014/v…

In his infinite wisdom ;P Joseph II made tickets available at MUCH lower prices - and has, in accordance with his enlightened agenda, so pulled in a larger audience; offer was vast and theatres (one of rare places for public entertainment) were quite full; 200 years ago the splendidly dynamic musical program was directed at all people alike and the money was a lesser means of acquisition ~ than yesterday has shown at La SCALA ~ with a bonus that in 1780's - for petty change - you could hear Mozart himself direct his music! ... Imagine that, La Scalawags!

Today, with €2.400 ($2.957) for 1 ticket -

who knows what Scala's agenda really is: right now the message for quite many people in otherwise financially pretty messed up Italy was, apparently, neither polite nor pleasant - so:

do the protesters rightfully ask:

... Whom, then, is La Scala ~ loyal to?

... Whom, then, does it pledge its ... Fidelity?

And what message is this institution, which should serve the art and public good and be downright humble about it -

finally sending out for all (or at least :cheese: chosen ones) ~ to see and hear?

:iconpissedoffbeethoven::iconmoneyplz::iconsaysplz:Hat man nicht auch Gold beineben,
                                     kann man nicht ganz glücklich sein;
                                     traurig schleppt sich fort das Leben,
                                     mancher Kummer stellt sich ein.
                                     Doch wenn’s in der Taschen fein klingelt und rollt,
                                     da hält man das Schicksal gefangen;
                                     und Macht und Liebe verschafft dir das Gold
                                     und stillet das kühnste Verlangen.
                                     Das Glück dient wie ein Knecht für Sold,
                                     es ist ein schönes Ding, das Gold.


Yes, we can not always have art without gold, ask any street musician. But with such salty prices - doesn't something ''stick'' to it afterwards?

And is it really necessary ~ to rub personal success (= ability to afford this ticket) ~ in faces of those who, in their joyously fruitful lives, have one pair of trousers - albeit possibly a deeper understanding of Fidelio? Wow, that hit a nerve.

But more importantly: is Beethoven's Fidelio priceless - therefore available to all - or worth just $2.957 - and available to some?

... What would Beethoven say?!

He was NOT the ''father of symphony'' - Sammartini and others were: people.emich.edu/dpierce/Symph… Haydn learned/copied from them (as even the great CPE had considerable doubts into his own abilities - whether or not his works will reach the standard set for his listeners by GBS.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
:bulletpink: Fun ;) and eerie :fuzzydemon: ANECDOTES:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

;) Jo Haydn and Wolf Mozart had TWIN pianos.

;) Bursting a bubble: the way I heard it growing up: www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/le…

;) Somehow, Jo got credited with 240 + symphonies. Of which he ''only'' wrote about 106.

;) Michael Haydn DETESTED plagiarism; as a young boy he founded society which detected nicking of themes, melodies & music by other composers - he demanded Original Creativity = a trademark throughout his life. The ONE article that explores possibility of Haydn recanting, is: www.biu.ac.il/hu/mu/min-ad/06-…
~ And, when push comes to shove =P I found J. A. Hasse's Requiem from 1763, second 1 minute long bit. Short, but essentially the same - Michael's Req-in-C sequence. Gotcha!

:fuzzydemon: TWO in one go - pardon - grave: Maria Anna (Marianne, Nannerl) Mozart and Mike Haydn share the SAME *six-feet-under*: www.haydn.dk/images2/stpeter7.… which may imply they were musical colleagues and equals. Due to a fellow who wanted to study the ''musical bump'' on Jo's head, mausoleum now holds TWO skulls: his & ''fake'' news.google.com/newspapers?nid…. Curiously, Mike too got parted with his head; deeply grieving widow asked for permission to nick & clean it: she then kept her husband's skull right at her side - on the night stand (it was put in the urn on top of the monument erected in his memory - now it's under lock and key in a safe), while his :heart: heart is kept separately in a shrine in St. Peter's Churchyard Cemetery in Salzburg. He was much loved and, despite ''excessive wine (and beer and ...) episodes and a musical style that was never far from a tavern or a dance hall'' (really, a waltz in a mass?!! - COOL!) - RESPECTED (so that's why his bits are scattered all over the place! Must be a good luck charm.)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
:bulletpink: Did-You-Know's:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- That around 1780, newly written Church edict demanded that the church music should be from then on composed in entirely simple manner (no fugues, no huge orchestra, ah, life of a Kapellmeister had to suck big time ... *snores*)

While tipsy Michael, admired & frequently copied :squee: by Mozart,

retained his dignity & cool with awesome FUGUES and major SACRAL works,

frisky Joseph, true to the Form, Logic and Balance -

wrote jolly gorgeous! concertos for *HURDY-GURDY* =P

and Operas for Prince Nikolaus' *PUPPET* theatre.

(... Here's a hint: if it sounds ridiculous:icontrollfaceplz:- it probably is;

Jo's frequently using irony; making ACID jokes and poking fun out of his audience; after all,

writing music-to-order can be rather depressing, especially in a mosquito ridden swamp

combined with shortage of desirable women. Oh, the tragedy. :nuu:)

:iconviolinplz::iconwineplz::iconflyingheartsplz:

While Mikey was pretty much dignified, stuck in his own demanding stylish branch,

after all - he had to live up to the ultra-prominent position of Konzertmeister (etc.) in Salzburg -

mostly autodidactic Jo had a bit of a bug up his aR$€ during the creative period

and looked everywhere (chiefly in himself) for new expressions in music -

seriously: stuck in a bog, :hexentanz: bored out of his mind :snowing: - was bound to invent Classicism. :music:

Q: What about Sammartini?!!
A: ... OK - it was a joined effort ;)

How tall were FJH and JMH? I understand that they were so undernourished during their youthful years that they grew up to be rather smallish men.

Well, Jo was around 165-168 cm tall (5.5 feet or so) ~ he was of the more wiry, starving kind and is usually described as a cute pocket-sort-of-a-man ;) but which was none the less good enough for the army! When Joseph was first with his cousin - he too starved him and has beaten him with a stick on his back, thighs and arms - so much so, that he many times broke it in half on then 6 year old Joseph. Might explain where Joseph's mischievous spirit (as well as some amount of aggressiveness) got born ...

His übertalented brother Michael, however, after about 4 years of training ~ pretty much became a St. Stephan's Kapelle substitute organist at ripe young age of 11 - for which he was paid not exactly luxuriously, but it helped: this could suggest that he, from time to time, was able to afford himself a little treat ~ thereby gaining some extension in the waist and height area.

They were both, like other boys, beaten raw and starved (and probably worse) by Reutter Jr.: :rose: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ-k-L… (who, btw, was apparently the first person to use the tuba (trombone) in *Tuba mirum*) Reutter's actions are semi-understandable ~ since he was a stingy bastard and his own son was singing in the Kapelle ~ and from whom, provided he too sang the soprano, both Haydn brothers ''stole'' most of the beautiful solos (sometimes Michael even got rewarded) ...

Both brothers earned a little extra by singing or playing on fanciful events, mostly, biographers say, because of the food (and wine) they were provided with - which sustained the players throughout the evening.

Once he got into service, Joseph was OK: he even had a clause in the contract about how many bottles of wine his employer must yearly provide for him!

While we have Joseph's death mask: :la: www.google.si/search?q=joseph+… and even cranial facial reconstruction 

~ there are many portraits of Michael Haydn about - but, in my opinion, none of those matter: 

THIS is Michael Haydn:

:star: sta.sh/06s54v6xsdk

Like his brother he had pronounced roundy cheeks, like his brother he had protruding nose and slouched eyebrows. Michael's jaw line is different, stronger and edgy, and forehead is higher set, he also might have had slight deformity of left side of the lips area. Portrait is of a hunched, tired and sad man ~ whose eyes still show lively interest in everything around him! ... And he has his best wig on! (We know Michael had many wigs, not just the one frequently seen on his portraits. When practising with a choir or orchestra, he hung it on a nail which can still be found in one of Salzburg churches!) When in service to Colloredo, he also kept his privilege from Schrattenbach era ~ namely to eat at the officer's table (free meal at court). As he grew older, he urged his pupils to take over his duties (time for the young to prove themselves) and his own accolades of Konzertmeister etc. got, via current non-Colloredian count, increasingly stripped from him ~ meaning so did his pay check. From an excruciatingly talented boy grew a Kapellmeister ~ who then finished his career as a mere organist which is what his tombstone says. ... From this and many other indignations and misfortunes (and probably liver failure :beer: =P ) - I think he died of a broken heart.
