About

Many listeners will be unfamiliar with the name Georg Benda, but in his day this Bohemian Kapellmeister enjoyed international fame – chiefly on account of his opera 'Ariadne auf Naxos', a product of the melodrama that Benda was instrumental in developing and which influenced, among others, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Benda’s skill was not just limited to musical stage entertainment, however. Attracting more than 2000 subscribers upon the publication of its first part, the 'Sammlung vermischter Clavierstücke für geübte und geübte Spieler' quickly became a bestseller, an anthology containing keyboard music, chamber music with strings and vocal pieces.

Benda belonged to a transitional period, which was full of innovations and attempts to be experimental, and the Sammlung does not fall short of this mark - from the irregular, unpredictable vocal line of Jesus am Creuze’s recitativo to the witty drinking song whose two‐bar recitativo leads to an unexpected keyboard sonata in the same key – a suggestion for public performance? – the set abounds in surprising twists and turns, making for a delightful source of entertainment.

Performing this engaging and often overlooked music is Ensemble Arcomelo, a period‐instrument group whose members share a passion for research, aesthetics and Baroque rhetoric. This release marks their first recording for Brilliant Classics. Founder Michele Benuzzi plays the harpsichord, deftly supporting soprano Elena Bertuzzi and tenor Paolo Borgonovo who carve up the vocal arias between them.
