"Seven thousand crowns of gold in three or four installments. According to his own convenience provided only that he executed the commission faithfully at the same time he repeated words to this effect i gave benvenuto into your charge and you have forgotten all about him. The cardinal said that he would punctually perform his majesty's commands but his own bad nature made him wait till the kings fit of generosity was over. Meanwhile wars and rumors of wars were on the increase. It was the moment when the emperor with a huge army was marching upon paris seeing the realm of france to be a great need of money the cardinal one day began to talk of me and said sacred majesty acting for the best. I have not had the money given to benvenuto. I did a surly wanted now for public uses secondly so great a donation would have exposed you to the risk of losing benvenuto altogether for if he found himself a rich man he might have invested his money in italy and the moment some caprice took of him he would have decamped without hesitation. I therefore consider that your majesty's best course will be to present him with something in your kingdom if you want to keep him in your service for any month of time. The king being really wanted money approved of these arguments nevertheless like the noble soul he was and truly worthy of his royal station. He judged rightly that the cardinal had acted thus in order to curry favor rather than from any clear provisions of distressed finances and so vast a realm chapter thirty nine is i have just said his majesty effected to conquer with the cardinal but his own private mine was otherwise made up. Accordingly upon the day after his arrival without solicitation upon my part he came of his own accord to my house. I went to meet him and conducted him through several rooms where diverse works of art. Were on view. Beginning with the less important. I pointed out a quantity of things in bronze and it was long since he had seen so many at once. Then i took him to see the jupiter and silver now nearly complete with all. It's splendid decorations. It so happened that a grievous disappointment which he had suffered a few years earlier made him think this piece more admiriable than it might perhaps have appeared to any other man the occasion to which i refer was this after the capture of tunis. The emperor pass through paris with the consent of his brother-in-law king francis who wanted to present him with something worthy of so great a potentate having thus in view he ordered hercules to be executed in silver exactly of the same size as my jupiter. The king declared this hercules to be the ugliest work of art that he had ever seen and spoke his opinion plainly to the craftsman of paris..

Meanwhile to his ambassador of arado. Sarah story we will then. In the first years of pope julius demonte chapter seventy-nine before leaving home. I directed my work people to proceed. According to the method i had taught them. The reason of my journey was as follows. I had made a life size bust in bronze of being the city the son of antonio and had sent it to him at rome he set it up is study which was very richly adorned with antiquities in other works of art but the room was not designed for statues off paintings since the windows were too low so that the light coming from beneath spoil the effect they would have produced the more favorable conditions. It happened one day that been there. Were standing his door when michaela nola one rotator sculptor passed by so he begged him to come in and see his study. Michaela nola followed in on entering the room and looking round exclaimed. Who is the master who made that good portrait of you and so find a manner. You must know that that bus pleases me much or even more than those antiques and yet there are many fine things to be seen among the latter. If those windows were above instead of beneath the whole collection would show the greater advantage and your portrait placed among so many masterpieces would hold. Its own with credit. No sooner had on your left the house of window then. He wrote me a very kind letter which ran as follows. My idea benvenuto. I have known you. For many years. As the greatest goldsmith of whom we have any information in henceforth i shall no you for a sculptor of light quality. I must tell you that master window also viti took me to see his bust in bronze and informed me that you had made it. I was greatly pleased with the work but it annoyed to notice that it was placed in a bad light for if it was suitably illuminated it would show itself to be the fine performance that it is this letter abounded with the most affectionate and complementary expressions toward myself and before i left for rome i showed it to the duke who read it with much kind interest and said to me then venuto if you write to him and persuade him to return to florence. I will make him a member of the forty eight. Accordingly i wrote a letter full of warmth and offered in the duke's name one hundred times more than my commission carried but not wanting to make any mistake. I showed this to the duke before i seal it saying to his most illustrious ecstasy prince. Perhaps i have made him too. Many promises replied michaela nola deserves more than you have promised and i will stolen him still greater favors to this letter. He sent no answer. And i could see that.

These were the causes of my having their produced so many masterpieces in so short space of time. Now then my lord put trust in me. Supply me with the eight i need. I am confident of being able to complete a work. Which will delight your soul. But if your excellency goes on disheartening. Me and does not advance me. The assistance which is absolutely required. Neither i nor any man alive upon this earth can hope to achieve the slightest thing of value chapter seventy four. It was as much as the duke could do to stand by and listen to my pleadings.

Tell me benvenuto. how is it possible. That yonder splendid head of medusa soul. High up there in the grasp of perseus should ever come out perfect. I replied upon the instant. Now my lord if your excellency possessed that knowledge of the craft which you affirm you have you would not fear one moment for the splendid head. You speak out. There is good reason on the other hand to feel uneasy about this right foot so far below and at a distance from the rest when he heard these words the duke turned half in anger to some gentlemen in waiting and exclaimed. I barely believe that. This benvenuto prides himself on contradicting everything. One says then he faced round to me with a touch of mockery upon which attendance did the like and began to speak as follows. I will listen patiently to any argument. You can possibly produce an explanation of your statement which may convince me of its probability. said an answer. I will do. So sound argument that your excellency. Shell perceive the full force of it. So i began. You must know my lord that the nature of fire is to ascend. And therefore i promise you that medusa head will come out famously. But since it is not in the nature of fire to descend and i must force it downwards six cubits by artificial means i assure your excellency upon this most convincing ground of proof that the foot cannot possibly come out it will however be quite easy for me to restore it. Why then said the duke. Did you not devise it so that the foot should come out as well as you affirmed the head. Will i answered. I must have a much larger furnace with conduit as thick as my leg. So i might have forced the molten metal by its own weight to descend so far now my pipe which six cubits to the statues foot as i have said is not thicker than two fingers however it was not worth the trouble and expense to make a larger for i shall easily be able to men what is lacking but when my mold is more than half full as i expect from this middle point upwards the fire ascending by its natural property then the heads of perseus and medusa will come out admirably. You may be quite sure of it after. I had thus expounded these convincing arguments together with many more of the same kind which it would be tedious to set down here. The duke shook his head and departed without further ceremony..

The castle might possibly have entered it with ease because the artillery was doing them no damage. I went on firing under the eyes of several cardinals. In lords who kept blessing me and giving me the heartiest encouragement. In my enthusiasm. I strove to achieve the impossible. Let it suffice that it was. I who saved the castle that morning and brought the other bombardier's back to their duty. I worked the whole of that day and when the evening came while the army was marching into rome through the testaverde. Hope clement appointed a great roman nobleman named antonio santa croce to captain of all the gunners. The first thing that this man did was to come to me and having greeted me with the utmost kindness he stationed me with five fine pieces of artillery on the highest point of the castle to which the name of the angels specially belongs. This circular eminence goes around the castle and surveys both protti and the town of rome. The captain put under my orders enough men to help and managing my guns and having seen me paid in advance. He gave me rations of bread and a little wine and beg me to go forward. As i had begun. I was perhaps more inclined by nature to the profession of arms than to the one i had doubted and took such pleasure in its duties that i discharge them better than those of my own art night came. The enemy had entered rome and we who were in the castle especially myself who have always taken pleasure in extraordinary sites stayed gazing on the indescribable scene of tumult and complication in the streets below people who were anywhere else but where we were could not have formed the least imagination of what it was i will not however set myself to describe that tragedy but will content myself with continuing the history of my own life and the circumstances which properly belonged to it..

"Introductory note among the vast number of men who have thought fit to write down the history of their own lives three or four have achieved masterpieces which standout preeminently saint augustine in his confessions samuel peeps in his diary russo. In his confessions it is among these extraordinary documents. An unsurpassed by any of them. That the autobiography of benvenuto chellany takes its place. The life of himself which shalini wrote was due to other motives than those which produced its chief competitors for first place in its class. Saint augustine's aim was religious and didactic pete's noted down in his diary the daily events of his life for his soul satisfaction and with no intention that anyone should read the cipher in which they were recorded but shalini wrote that the world might know after he was dead. What a fellow he had been what great things he had attempted. And against what odds he had carried them through. All men he held would ever be their condition who have done anything of merit or which verily has a semblance of merit if so be they are men of truth in good repute should write detail of their life with their own hand that he had done many things of merit. He had no matter of doubt. His repute was great in his day and perhaps good in the sense in which he meant goodness as to whether he was a man of truth. There is still dispute among scholars of some misrepresentations some suppressions of damaging facts. There seems to be evidence. Only two good a man with selena's passion for proving himself in the right could hardly have avoided being guilty of such but of the general trustworthiness of his record of the kind of man he was in the kind of life. You lead there is no reasonable doubt. The period covered by the autobiography from selena's birth. In fifteen hundred to fifteen sixty to the scene is mainly in italy and france of the great events of the time the time of the reformation and the counter reformation of the strife of pope and emperor and king we get only glimpses. The leaders in these events appear in the foreground of the picture only when they come into personal relations the hero and then not mainly as statesman warriors but as connoisseurs and patrons of art such an event is the sack of rome is described because benvenuto himself fought in it much more complete is the view he gives up the artistic life of the time it was the age of michelangelo and in the throng of great artists which then filled the italian cities. Shalini was no inconsiderable figure. Michelangelo himself he knew an doored no work. Can we gain a better idea than in this book of the passionate enthusiasm for the creation of beauty which has bestowed upon the italy of the renaissance greatest glory very vivid to is the impression we receive of the social life of the sixteenth century of its violence in licentious of its zeal for fine craftsmanship of its abounding vitality. Its versatility in its idealism. For cellini himself is an pity me of that century. This man who tells the story of his life was a murderer and a braggart insolent sensual. Inordinately proud and passionate but he was also a worker in gold and silver rejoicing indelicate subtle modeling of precious surfaces a sculptor and musician. And as all who read his book must testify. A great master of narrative is was benvenuto in himself and much as he loved to dwell on the splendor of his exploits and achievements. He had little idea that centuries after his death he would live again led by his perseus and his goldsmith's work than by the book which he dictated casually to aladdin fourteen while he went about his work. The autobiography was composed between fifteen fifty. Eight in fifteen sixty six but it brings the record down only to fifteen sixty two. The remainder of selena's life seems to have been somewhat more peaceful in fifteen sixty five. He married pierra to salvadorian parigi a servant who had nursed him when he was sick and in the care of his children as earlier of his sister and nieces he showed more tenderness than might have been expected from a man of his boisterous nature. He died at florence may thirteen fifteen seventy one and was buried in the church of the ziada in that city..

Let It Roll: The Subversive Side of Classical Music

"Some. Let it roll. Let me host Nate Wilcox. They will have the pleasure of welcoming back Ted Gioia to discuss again his book a subversive history of music. Today we're going to talk about a section of the book focusing on what we probably call classical music European concert tradition and starting off with chapters like musicians behaving badly so it's kind of a different take on classical music ted. Welcome back to the show right. Thanks for having me back. It's a pleasure and I wanted to do this because you know we talked about the book before and and it's it's a paradigm shifting book for me. It's one that really expanded my mind and and clarify things that have been wrestling with and you put it into words brilliantly and it it helped me focus on the whole scope of the show but the section in particular was one. I skipped over last time because I considered outside the breadth of the show which has covered things like the history of rock and roll music and Pop Music in the twentieth century. And I realized reading this book and do more research that the history of popular music as a business really goes back to the renaissance while absolutely on a lot of the behavior patterns of the musicians as well date back to that people often ask me what I learned researching this book and it was many years of research. But one of the quickest summaries. I have is. I found out that the music of might time and the music I grew up with which was jazz. Blues and rock and roll really the musicians back in the glory. Years of classical music weren't all that different and we have a tendency to sanitized that whole record to treat these people with great esteem. But they were just disruptive in many ways more disruptive than later rock musicians so. There's a lot of things that we take for granted in the current day that in fact for justice vibrate noticeable two hundred years ago. Yeah and you talk about this phenomenon that repeats throughout the history of music in the book which is a transition from disruption to respectability from outsiders to insiders and so often musical. Innovations are driven by people on the outside of the system but then there as they succeed as they impact the popular consciousness. They're pulled in to the inside. Sometimes they themselves become insiders other times. They're co opted. You know postmortem talk about that phenomenon. Logan that's right and we're very familiar with this in our own lifetime. We've all seen it when I was growing up The the Beatles and the Rolling Stones Bob Dylan. These dangerous. Figures feared by the establishment. But nowadays Bob Dylan is Nobel. Laureate Mick Jagger Sir Mick Jagger Paul McCartney Sir Paul McCartney and even the most extreme examples I mean take hip hop. Nwea the FBI tried to shut down the record label when they came on board nowadays. That same record has been enshrined in the National Archive of historic recordings of Congress. You have the Smithsonian out there putting together an official Smithsonian Guide to hip hop with fifty hip hop professors. Very idea about professor would have seen the contradiction in terms but they got fifty of them putting together this Canon of hip hop song. So we know about this from our own life and we've seen how these styles has been a good sized what we don't realize the same thing happened hundreds of years ago. The classic example is Bach. You Know Balk is considered now the poster child for respectability classical music is great composer. Who composed for God and country devout booth and run it Cetera et CETERA. You go back and do his own times and you find. That balk grew up with juvenile delinquents. Went to a school famous for gang. Culture was mentored by one of the worst gang members all his early jobs. Disciplinary problems At a young age to spend a month in jail He was called to task for cavorting with a young lady in the organ. Loft had prodigious beer-drinking every possible violation of rules and discipline he exemplified. None of that is is remembered nowadays. He's just the Lutheran composer so this recurring. We could talk about other composers. But there's one point I do WanNa make though I raise these issues in my book. Not because I'm trying to be gossipy or salaciously and it makes for great reading to read all these sexy anecdotes. I have the point. I'm trying to make though is these. Figures could not have created disruptive music they invented if they hadn't been disruptive in their own lifetimes you know almost all the commentary on Bach. We have from back then people complaining about him. You know people complaining about how show he was. He was called the task before the city council had to submit a written document explaining why he was using such new progressive and strange musical techniques. So this thing is conducted disruption in their private life and the disruption. Their music is connected. And that's why well upon it because if you don't understand that you will never understand the evolution of music and going back a little further. You talk about a couple of composers from the Italian renaissance. Who went way beyond Bach in terms of violations of social norms? I'm Talkin about two particular Rotella Mayo Trump Esino and Carlo Jesualdo and bothered these guys. Were involved in love. Triangles that resulted in murders committed by them. Oh this is right. It's interesting if you start with the music of these two individuals trauma Chino and swallow. Its gentle music and they will have songs. These pretty gentle love songs. Mandra goes in front of us but in their private life they were violent angry people and both of them not only did they commit murders but it was obvious to everybody that they were guilty and they were never punished and this is interesting because it shows you that. Starting around the renaissance it became the norm or musicians to go outside the norm. They were allowed indiscretions that other people were not and in fact. I'm convinced in both those instances their fame and reputation was increased by committing murder. I think people felt well. If this guy is such a passionate lover that he he he. He kills somebody in a fit of jealous rage. Who you know. There must be a similar intensity of passion in the song and we laugh at that. But that's the same way. People look at rock bands and the sex pistols. And we've seen this in our lifetime. If the musician out of control we suspect there must be a certain intensity in the music as well so it all came back to that time I mean just one more example I find this fascinating people that want to understand what it was like to be an artist during the Renaissance. The most famous book. They read the autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini. He was a renaissance artist famous as a silversmith sculptor but he was also a musician played the flute and he wrote his life story. And it makes fascinating reading but I went through that book page by page and I just marked off every time. Shalini committed a violent crime and and I think I came up potentially with at least fourteen. Violent crimes committed in his life. And this is not including the the the just the vandalism or the varsity these are actually violent crimes where he murdered somebody or beat them up and none of them was punished for he was. He was actually put in jail couple times. It was only because of arguments with his patrons over payment and artworks and my favorite anecdote from the whole book comes from a conversation when someone would approach the Pope instead of the jubilee. WanNa hire this Guy Shalini. You know he's committed murder and all this and the pope said you don't understand for people like Ben to Chile. Different rules apply that came directly from the mouth of the Pope and the renaissance. And this was a new idea and I would say we still live with this idea to even though even in the midst of the metoo movement and all the scandals. They're still this expectation that great musicians with by their own rules and they violate rules and and For good or bad that's part of the whole Agassi Western music.
