About

At the time when Isaac Newton invented the first reflecting telescope, Leopold I reigned in Vienna. Leopold I had a great passion in common with his arch-rival Louis XIV - music. On top of that, both were passionate dancers, but while Louis XIV merely consumed harmonies and melodies, the Cesarea Maesta also composed music. Today the portfolio of the Austrian National Library shows the musical creativity of the emperor. It was probably the bandmaster Antonio Bertali who instructed the regent in the art of composing. The works of the emperor were of course also performed by the court orchestra. Whether in dance music, songs for Carnival or sacred works. Il lutto dell置niverso is one of Leopold痴 230 surviving works and belongs to the Sepolcro genre. The work was first performed in Vienna Neustadt on Maundy Thursday, 29 March 1668.
