Presentation of the new album Tactus "Cantatas and Arias for solo voice" by Girolamo Crescentini
"THE POETRY OF METASTASIO Girolamo Crescentini between classicism, restoration and pre romantic revolution"
music by L. van Beethoven, J. Haydn, G. Crescentini, F. Schubert, G. Donizetti
Cantatas and arias of the castrato Girolamo Crescentini, a true celebrity in the late eighteenth century, as well as teacher of the famous Isabella Colbran (Rossini's favorite singer and inspiring star of many Rossini operas). Opportunity to rediscover, through these world premieres, a veritable compendium of the art of Belcanto. Around the rarest Crescentini pages, are arranged pages by other authors tracking a thick network of connections with its production: the Arianna to Naxos cantata by Haydn, arias by Beethoven and Schubert on the same texts by Metastasio, and finally, a chamber aria by Donizetti clearly showing traces of influence by Crescentini.
