David Daniels & Fabio Biondi Europa Galante - Vivaldi - Stabat Mater,Nisi Dominus,Longe Mala 2001 (Virgin) MP3/Flac

Label : Virgin

Value :

Vivaldi: Stabat Mater, Nisi Dominus, Longe mala; David Daniels, countertenor, Europa Galante (with Fabio Biondi, violin, viola d’amore, Lorenzo Colitto, violin, Ernesto Braucher, viola, Maurizio Naddeo, cello, Sergio Ciomei, organ, Francisco Jose Montero, violone, Ugo Nastrucci, theorbo), Fabio Biondi, conductor.

The latest in a series of stunning Baroque recordings by music director Fabio Biondi, a fine period violinist, unites acclaimed interpreters of Baroque music Europa Galante (all on period instruments) with American countertenor David Daniels for a trio of exceptionally beautiful sacred works. The result is a sublime rendering of the composer’s plaintive Stabat Mater (possibly Vivaldi's first sacred work, commissioned in 1711 for the Feast of Seven Sorrows of the Virgin Mary), Nisi Dominus, and Longe mala, umbrae, terrores. The three works were performed during Vivaldi's lifetime by either castrati, female contraltos, or countertenors. Daniels, known for the natural, sensual quality of his vocals, displays an especially lyrical, sometimes unearthly voice that lends these works considerable power. The warmly colored pieces also feature some quite demanding string parts. Liner note writer Toussaint Loviko aptly describes the Cum dederit delictis suis somnum of the Nisi Dominus as "a hypnotic siciliana in which the voice floats over a bed of strange sonorities, the high strings being veiled by piombi, or lead mutes, and thrown into relief by the suppression of the lower strings." The effect, he rightly adds, is more "an evocation of a vale of tears than a serene prayer."

Σταματώντας μερικές μέρες για διακοπές είπα να κάνω μια διαφορετική ανάρτηση .Longe Mala απ τα πιο όμορφα θρησκευτικά μοτέτα του Vivaldi.

Καλό Πάσχα και καλή ανάσταση σε όλους τους τομείς.
