Format: COMPACT DISC
Kralova, Veronika; Cevidalli, Lydia; Nuccio, Alessandro; Banditelli, Gloria; Ensemble Salomone Rossi
The present project provides for the creation of a complete survey of the work “L’Estro Poetico-armonico,” with music by Benedetto Marcello and texts by Gerolamo Ascanio Giustiniani. It began in 2013 at the Madesimo Music Festival, at the urging and support of Mario Marcarini and under the artistic direction of Lydia Cevidalli, director of the Ensemble Salomone Rossi. The recording project proposes a comparison of manuscripts and editions to know and understand the steps that led to these transcriptions, and a comparison of data to identify the methods of frequentation of Marcello with members of the Jewish community. This release features three Psalms, including Psalm 15, as well as a Jewish melody and other lovely chamber music.
