Vincenzo Manfredini, Regole armoniche

Musical TreatisesVincenzo Manfredini, Regole armoniche

edited by Massimiliano Sala, facsimile of the 1775 Venice edition, with an annotated English translation by Robert Zappulla, Turnhout, Brepols, 2013 (Musical Treatises, 1), pp. xvi+216+116 (unnumbered tables), ISBN: 978-2-503-54883-8.

Contents

A composer of, amongst other things, operas, ballets, symphonies, string quartets and harpsichord sonatas, Vincenzo Manfredini eventually turned to writing about music. His Regole armoniche is an important source of information on eighteenth-century performing practices. In this work he summarizes all of the rules surrounding accompaniment illustrating them with written-out realizations.

He is, quite possibly, the only Italian author of an accompaniment treatise to take this approach. His comments on singing sparked controversial exchanges between the Italian castrato Giovanni Battista Mancini and Esteban de Arteaga. The volume aims to investigate the genesis and the role of Regole armoniche in the light of theoretical concepts and debates within eighteenth-century musical spheres.

The volume is divided into three parts: firstly,  an opening collection of critical essays (by Gregory Barnett,  Jean Grundy Fanelli, Rudolf Rasch and Peter Walls) concerning Manfredini’s life, his output and his intellectual inclinations; secondly, a facsimile edition and finally, an annotated edition whose translation into English is long overdue.
