Stradella, Alessandro - San Giovanni Crisostomo - Astronio, Claudio / Harmonices Mundi

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Having lived a short, dramatic life worthy of its own literary account (a highly dramatised novel of his life was produced in 1844 recounting his many scandals and sensational murder), San Giovanni Crisostomo was one of several sacred oratorios to emerge from Alessandro Stradella’s surprisingly large output. It tells of the conflict between the rapacious, tyrannical and yet conflicted Queen Eudosia of Byzantium, and John Chrysostom, the dissident Archbishop of Constantinople, known for his eloquent rebuttals of corruption and wealth. Through this work Stradella and the unknown librettist explore the greater conflict between secular and religious powers, and engage the listener in sophisticated moral and political dilemmas.

Perhaps his best-known work, Stradella’s score makes innovative use of intimate resources; it calls only for a simple basso continuo to accompany the singers, and demonstrates his signature flair for recognising dramatic contours of the text in his vocal works along with his rhythmic fluidity, striking harmonic invention and sensitively designed characterisation of its main roles. Having already tackled the likes of Bach, Albinoni and Vivaldi on previous releases, Baroque aficionados Harmonices Mundi bring their learned interpretations to the recording and breathe new life to Stradella’s remarkable work, while showcasing the copious talents of several leading early music specialists. This exciting new recording is based on a critical edition by Colin Timms, academic and expert in early music.
