Musiques et musiciens à Grenoble au XVIIe siècle (1590-1730)

Abstract : Many cities have had historical studies performed concerning their musical life and activities in modern times. But such a study has not yet been realized for the city of Grenoble. Some researches already attempted are dealing mostly with music and musicians of the 18th century. The present study aims at setting the bases for a fundamental analysis of the musical life and activities in Grenoble, during the so-called modern Epoch, and will concern a large 17th century, from 1590 to 1730, at the time when the baroque style emerges. Our first point will propose a summary of the knowledge that archivists and historians of Grenoble have collected, and which can contribute to the history of music and musicians of this city. We try to realize the importance of musical activities in all social and public events in the city, and further, to discover traces of musical interest and activities in private homes, among local members of aristocratic society, until the days when these music lovers have organized the Académie du Concert, from 1724 on. Our second point will deal with the social group of all those who are professionally connected with music : instrument players, dance instructors, instrument makers. Among all those musicians, a particular attention will be paid to the case of the Farinel family, with emphasis on the carrier of Michel Farinel, a musician well known in Grenoble and also in Europe.
