Steffani: Vocal Chamber Duets


Pria ch’io faccia

E così mi compatite?

Lontananza crudel, tu mi tormenti

Vorrei dire un non so che

Dolce è per voi soffrire

Gelosia, che vuoi da me?

Saldi marmi che coprite

Elena Bertuzzi (soprano), Alessio Tosi (tenor) Francesco Baroni (harpsichord), Rebeca Ferri (cello), Michele Pasotti (theorbo)

The music of Agostino Steffani was torn from oblivion by the successful album “Mission” by Cecilia Bartoli. Subsequent issues of his music showed a highly original and prolific composer of instrumental music, sacred music and operas. Apart from his activities as a highly esteemed composer he was also a diplomat in the service of Italy, accomplishing important missions to the courts of Europe.

This new recording presents delightful vocal duets for soprano and tenor, accompanied by a small instrumental ensemble of cello, theorbo and harpsichord. Both voices are perfectly equal, and foreshadow the duets from the famous operas by Haydn and Mozart.

The secular texts mainly deal with Love, both fulfilled and unrequited.
