With this new album, he revives a number of forgotten works by a contemporary of Johann Sebastian Bach, Handel and Vivaldi – the Venetian-born Antonio Caldara, who made his career in Mantua, Barcelona, Rome and, finally, Vienna. All the arias – several recorded for the very first time – come from operas with librettos by Metastasio (1698 –1782), whose noble texts defined the genre of opera seria. Both Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito, first performed in 1791, and Caldara’s opera of the same name, first performed nearly 60 years previously, were settings of Metastasio, while the writer’s text for Caldara’s Demofoonte, first performed in 1733, went on to inspire more than 70 stage works, including operas by Gluck, Paisiello, Piccinni, Graun and Cherubini.
As usual, Jaroussky has done his own musicological research for this album. „I’m always very curious and love to go to libraries. When you are in direct contact with manuscripts, it’s like you are touching history; it’s important for me to do the research myself, to be in direct contact with the material.” […]
