Torrent description

Found this gem newly released yesterday on "alt.binaries.sounds.lossless.classical" by a guy calling himself "Cecil". All credits go to him and I hope he doesn't mind my releasing his rip as a torrent ...if he should ever comes across it outside Usenet. The scans for pages 4-7 of the booklet were not included by him.

From the New Grove Dictionary: ...Polish composer, violinist and writer. He is first heard of in September 1612, when he entered the Kapelle of Johann Siegmund Hohenzollern, Elector of Brandenburg, in Berlin as a violinist. On 30 April 1615 the elector granted him a year’s leave of absence so that he could visit Italy, probably to perfect himself as a composer and to become better acquainted with Italian music. Apparently he did not return to Berlin. Instead he became a musician in the royal chapel at Warsaw, probably in 1616 or 1617, and remained there for the rest of his life. He is last heard of on 26 December 1648, when, close to death, he dictated his last will, and presumably died a few days later. Apart from his musical activities as a violinist and composer, he taught some of the senators' children and acted as an administrator and organizer in connection with the building of the royal palace at Ujazdow, near Warsaw...

As a composer, Jarzebski is known chiefly by the manuscript Canzoni e concerti (1627). It contains twelve compositions for two instruments, ten for three instruments and five for four instruments, all with continuo; some are also found in the Pelplin Tablatures. These works were crucially important in the development of chamber music in central Europe. All the two-part pieces are transcriptions of polyphonic vocal works by other composers, among them Giovanni Gabrieli, Lassus, Merulo and Palestrina, but Jarzebski treated the original pieces in such an individual and creative manner that his transcriptions are in fact new compositions, instrumental in nature. He took over only the broad structural outlines and the thematic material of the originals. He used the material only at the beginning of his transcriptions, later so transforming it by variation technique that it assumes a quite different character; moreover, he introduced new elements into many of the pieces (e.g. dance rhythms in Susanna videns). In all the pieces Jarzebski’s melodies are richly ornamented and are notable for their harmonic basis, which is manifested in, for example, the way in which they are built on broken triads (as in Nova casa, Sentinella, Spandesa, Bentrovata, Norimberga, Canzon terza and Canzon quinta) and in the subordination of the lower voices to the highest voice. The three- and four-part pieces show distinct tonal leanings, but the two-part ones are still firmly modal. Jarzebski handled chromaticism and dissonance in a lively manner, as can be seen in the three-part Chromatica, in one section of which he experimented by introducing the motif of a descending chromatic 4th that was popular at the time. The two-part pieces resemble various types of ricercare and fantasia. The others are varying types of canzona, among which the arch-form canzona is particularly conspicuous, since it was still a rarity in central European chamber music of the 1620s. Jarzebski, moreover, introduced up-to-date italianate trio-sonata textures to Warsaw. In some of his instrumental works he used popular tunes.
