MosŤ, a miniature opera (as baroque oratorios basically were), presents a series of characters that are skilfully outlined by Pertiís lively music. The characters that stand out are the solemn, tormented Moses (alto); the haughty, quick-tempered Pharaoh (a virtuoso, agile bass); and the Text, who relates events and comments on them - when the oratorio was performed for the first time, this role was assigned to one of the greatest male altos of those days.
Pertiís arias require great virtuosity in the singers (in this edition, recorded by the ensemble Les Nations, there are some of the best Italian specialists of baroque singing) and in the trumpet player. The trumpet is an unusual presence, but this instrument was much appreciated in the Bolognese musical milieu of that period, and it lends a really unique instrumental timbre to the composition.
