About this title:

Synopsis: The remarkable career of Venanzio Rauzzini (1746-1810) sheds new light on changing musical tastes in late eighteenth-century Britain. Rauzzini was a leading soprano castrato who sang in the premiere of Mozart's Lucio Sillain 1772. Mozart was so pleased with the singer that he composed the famous motet Exsultate Jubilate for him. This book examines Rauzzini's career in Britain, starting with his three seasons as a principal singer at the King's Theatre in London (1774-77). Rauzzini was the first castrato to make Britain his home, and he enjoyed a multifaceted career there as a singer, concert director, composer (operas, chamber music, and songs), and voice teacher. Rauzzini's leadership of the Bath subscription concerts from 1780-1810 reveals the degree to which shifts in the social demographics of Bath over this period caused him to reevaluate his compositional choices, especially in light ofthe patriotic fervor that swept the nation during the protracted war with France. Furthermore, the recovery of much of the repertory performed during these concerts provides specific insights into issues of concert management atthe time. Paul F. Rice, Professor of Musicology in the School of Music, Memorial University of Newfoundland, is the author of four previous books and has edited scores for CD recordings on the Naxos, Dorian, and Centaurlabels.

Product Description: Venanzio Rauzzini (1746-1810) was a successful Italian castrato, best known for his relationship to Mozart. (Mozart's famous motet Exultate Jubilate was composed for Rauzzini after his performance in the premiere of Mozart's Lucio Silla.) In 1774, Rauzzini moved to London where he performed three seasons of serious operas at the King's Theatre. From 1777 until his death in 1810, he was the director of the concert series in Bath, a series that matched the prestige of any that were given in London. In addition, he composed prolifically, writing music for eleven operas. Rauzzini faced considerable challenges during this time, both because he was socially "other" as a castrato, and because he was foreign-born. Rice's study reveals much about the changing social demographics of the Bath audiences, and the need to respond musically to the ongoing war effort of his adopted country. The circumstances surrounding the production of Rauzzini's operas in London during the 1780s further shed light on one of the most troubled periods of the King's Theatre. Paul Rice is professor of musicology at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
