Sprezzatura

Do you have sprezzatura at all?

It is a necessary requirement if you wish to match Mr Mozart fashionably, if not musically.

What else does it take to be considered accomplished in the 21st century?

Who is currently matching Mozart, musically, politically, fashionably or in any other way?









Even if you have not been matching Mozart or participating in the Mozarty Party World Peace and Global Prosperity Tour, you are still required to display sprezzatura as a performer in this venue.  






The sprezzatura prelude








Sprezzatura is much like homophony.  It enables the performer to stand out melodiously from the crowd, thereby justifiably representing the harmonious interplay of beauty, understanding and magnificence.

What is the texture of your artistic attributes?

When was the last time you contributed to dialogues of enlightenment?

When was the last time you composed or compiled a Twaklin anthology?


How do you usually prepare yourself for an evening of auditions?

To have sprezzatura is to be devoid of the annoyance perpetrated by bores and boors.  To be boring is to deny other people the right to enjoyment in life.  To be a boor is to destroy quality of life.

Even though meanings change over time, and in various contexts, at the heart of true sprezzatura is the secret effort of seemingly effortless, non-deceptive brilliance.

Unlike spectacle, which is mainly a deceptive lack of effort made to look impressive, and often achieved with a great deal of money thrown at it, true sprezzatura is of considerable value at a level beyond the understanding of the uninitiated.  It is meaningful, purposeful and wonderful.  It will always express the harmonious interplay of beauty, understanding and magnificence.

Yet vulgar marketeers degrade sprezzatura, just as they do with many valuable qualities.  To use sprezzatura as a marketing term is to cancel out its meaningfulness.

How do you make the difficultly beautiful look and sound easy?
