Agostino Steffani was a man of many talents. A gifted linguist, his skills led him to a successful career as a diplomat, spending most of his life in Germany rather than his native Italy. As well as mediating between heads of state of the day, Steffani was a prolific composer, producing a substantial number of operas and sacred works. His secular music was also well known, although, to protect his neutrality, his works were signed by his secretary rather than the composer himself. The vocal chamber duets on this release are unusual for the period; Steffani moved away from the Baroque practice of pairing a solo voice with a basso continuo accompaniment and instead began to favour the equal partnership of two voices. The composers skills as a linguist underpin these works, exemplified by the expert way in which he matches the words to the melody. The texts in general are brief, charming musings on the pain and pleasure of unrequited love, with Steffani drawing on various contemporary Italian poets. Although Steffanis chamber duets cover a number of voice combinations, the ones for soprano and tenor are some of the most attractive, thanks to the light interplay between the male and female voices. They are consummately interpreted by experienced performers Elena Bertuzzi and Alessio Tosi, who between them have won several national and international prizes and have performed at a number of prestigious festivals. Tosi has previously collaborated with renowned early music ensemble La Venexiana, and their recording of Monteverdis Il ritorno di Ulisse in patria was praised as being state-of-the-art stuff in Gramophone magazine. Bertuzzi has already recorded for Brilliant Classics, having released a collection of chamber music by Georg Benda in 2013 (BC94433), for which she was acclaimed by MusicWeb International as a pleasure to hear. Both singers are well-supported by musicians playing on period instruments, and their long experience in performing Baroque music leads to an authentic and charming recording.
