Caspar Kittel: Arias & Cantatas

A real discovery. As a pupil of Heinrich Sch├╝tz, Caspar Kittel is a representative of one of the most important traditions in seventeenth-century German music. His printed collection from 1638 is a very successful mixture of German and Italian elements. With the poems of Martin Opitz, Kittel set the best German-language texts that his time had to offer. The attention to the subtleties of the language, the evocation of nature's moods, and the exploration of human emotions in the areas of love, growing-old, and death are of great artistic quality.
