DOYLE MENA CASAL ORQUESTA BARROCA DE SEVILLA ONOFRI

The Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, in collaboration with several universities, researches repertoire linked to the history of Andalusia. This Proyecto Atalaya has already produced a series of albums with unknown jewels, which have also been released on PASSACAILLE. On this release, entitled Astro Nuevo, the musicians, under the direction of Enrico Onofri, rediscover works by Pedro Rabassa (1683-1767), who worked for more than forty years as Kapellmeister at Seville Cathedral. Also thanks to the excellent soloists - Julia Doyle and Carlos Mena (countertenor) - his music becomes a real rediscovery of the musical Baroque in Spain.
