Orgelski koncerti Henryja Burgessa (1718–1786)

Ključne besede: Henry Burgess mlajši, Henry Burgess starejši, angleška glasba, angleška pesem, Georg Friedrich Händel, orgelski koncert, Antonio Vivaldi


Henry Burgess mlajši je leta 1743 objavil prvo znano zbirko orgelskih koncertov izpod peresa kakega angleškega skladatelja. V njih je viden močan vpliv Georga Friedricha Händla, ki je z orgelskimi koncerti, objavljenimi leta 1738 kot op. 4, iznašel ta žanr, razviden pa je tudi vpliv Antonia Vivaldija in, presenetljivo, angleške pesemske tradicije. Čeprav je Burgess še vedno slabo poznan, je bil nadarjen in inovativen skladatelj, čigar iskrivi koncerti, ki se lahko izvajajo z orkestrom ali brez njega, si zaslužijo svoje mesto v repertoarju.
