cover


‘Concertini per Quattro Voci’
Volume 1
   
This volume contains four arias from a manuscript containing twenty quartets set for three sopranos and contralto.

An unusual feature of this work is its form and setting. It consists of quartet settings of duets from the works of Pietro Metastasio, one of the foremost librettists of eighteenth century ‘Opera Seria’. The work is unusually set for three sopranos and a contralto in the ‘duetto notturno’ style. The style was thought to be introduced in the later eighteenth century (1770) but this work shows that it was a style used at least a decade earlier.

The arias contained in the volume are:

I  Non temer non son pił amante:  from  'Antigno'

                        II  Tu vuoi ch'io viva o cara:  from 'Artaserse’' 

            III  Ne'giorni tuoi felici :  from 'Olimpiade’'

IV  Destra ti chiedo: from  'Demofoonte’'



This work will be published by the end of January 2013. If you are interested please send an                 email to:
