Claudio Marino Moretti

Jesu, meine Freude“, BWV 227, is a motet composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. It is also known as Motet No. 3 in E minor. The work takes its title from the hymn “Jesu, meine Freude”, with its chorale melody by Johann Crüger. Movements based on the hymn are interspersed with others based on passages from the Epistle to the Romans. Bach’s choral writing is in five parts, as only few other compositions. The idea of writing a requiem first came to Schnittke when he was writing his Piano Quintet (1972-76). The Quintet was dedicated to his mother, who died in 1972, and he wanted one of the movements to be a small instrumental requiem. The composer had already made sketches for all the major themes of the requiem, but they seemed to be more vocal than instrumental in character so they were not used in the Quintet.

The chorus master Claudio Marino Moretti began his musical studies at the Brescia Conservatory. He graduated in piano at the Milan Conservatory with Antonio Ballista. He collaborated for some years with Mino Bordignon at the Civic Choirs and then with Bruno Casoni at the Teatro Regio in Turin. He founded the Chorus of white voices of the Teatro Regio and of the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Turin with which he carries out an intense teaching and concert activity. From 2001 to 2008 he was the choir master of the Teatro Regio in Turin. Since 2008 he has been the choir master of the La Fenice Theater in Venice. He carries out liederistic activities with singers including Markus Werba, Veronica Simeoni, Monica Bacelli, Mirko Guadagnini, Oksana Lazareva, Gloria Banditelli.
