Giuseppe Giordani (1751-1798)
Sacred Works

The great musical writing by Giuseppe Giordani, born into the great eighteenthcentury Neapolitan school and object of recent musicological interest, here emerges in all its variety. This CD includes his work for soloists and choir with concertante organ accompaniment according to a common practice in the Italian choirs yet, still very little considered (whose origins are found back in 1602 with the Cento Concerti Ecclesiastici by Ludovico Viadana). The “Goffredo Petrassi” choir, led by Stefano Cucci, uses exceptional soloists for an appropriate appreciation of the sacred music repertoire by Giordani, author of great depth in the European Classicism panorama that saw his operatic works being represented, not only in the major Italian theaters, but also in Lisbon, Madrid and Dresden.
