2 atei, monologand

Prima parte a unui interviu cu adevarat interesant (restul partilor, de sunteti interesati, le gasiti pe tub). Mi-am scos cateva note, insa in cadrul acestui post am sa ma opresc, foarte pe scurt, doar la doua chestiuni:

1. afirmatiile pe care le face Coyne, contrar a ceea ce probabil multi cred, sunt foarte crestine. Ca si cele pe care le face Dawkins. Iezuitul nostru nu este nici primul si nici cel mai radical crestin darwinist (here and here [part. I, cap. 4]). Stiind aceste lucruri, nu ne mai mira ca cineva ca Jacques Loeb was bitterly hostile to Darwinian evolutionary theory because it could be used to support Christian theology (here). Mda, cu o diferenta: evolutionismul este un output al doctrinei crestine si nu o gaselnita “which can be used to”.

2. God has no place in science, honestly. To explain things, I don’t need God. I don’t need God to explain, say, the rainbow, ne spune S.J.-ul. De acord. Ironic insa, toti parintii of the so called modern science au avut nevoie de God pentru a-si fonda teoriile – impotriva paganilor si ignorantilor de grecotei. Teorii care sunt folosite astazi atat de americani, cat si de japonezi. Caci nu?, ne spune Dawkins in acelasi interviu, one of the great virtues of science is its universality: a Japanese scientist is not different from an American scientist.

Annibale Padovano

Un compozitor superb, descoperit recent de lanternativistul vostru incoerent. Annibale Padovano, de la moartea caruia se implinesc si ceva ani care se termina in 5, a fost un compozitor si organist italian aciuat la curtea lui Carol al II-lea, impreuna cu Orlando di Lasso.

Prea multe detalii despre viata lui Annibale nu se cunosc, iar Dictionarul Grove nu ajuta nici el prea mult. Cateva extrase din articolul dedicat padovanului puteti citi mai jos:

(Padua, 1527 – Graz 1575). He was an organist at S Marco, Venice, from 30 November 1552 until 2 August 1565. On 1 August 1545 he became organist at the court of Archduke Karl II of Austria in Graz. Shortly before 1570 he assumed the title of director of music. His book of ricercares, published in 1556, brings together for the first time most of the stylistic elements of the mature Venetian ricercare: a dignified and homogeneous level of rhythmic activity; diatonic, largely conjunct thematic material; the linking of thematic material by means of subtle motivic interconnection and variation; the variation of thematic material by constant rhythmic permutation and by learned devices (augmentation, diminution, inversion and stretto). Padovano was also a master of the toccata: he may have been the first composer to expand the form and make it more important. In 1568 – together with Lassus – he composed much of the music for the wedding of Duke Wilhelm V of Bavaria to Renata of Lorraine. His eight-part instrumental battaglia was performed on this occasion; also probably performed were a 12-part instrumental work (lost) and a 24-voice mass. He probably also composed music for the wedding between Archduke Karl and Mary of Bavaria, in Vienna on 26 August 1571; a letter from the duke of Mantua to Hippolito Nuvolono of Graz, dated 19 September 1571, speaks of a Dialogo a 7 composed by Padovano in honour of the couple.

Am subliniat in textul de mai sus Messa deoarece, dupa ce a fost  interpretata la nunta lui Wilhelm V, duce de Bavaria (educat la iezuiti, trebuie mentionat!) cu Renata von Lothringen, a cazut in uitare, ea fiind cantata a doua oara dupa mai bine de 400 de ani, in 2000.
