ArtistsYetzabel Arias Fernandez (soprano)
NicolÚ Jommelli, the 300th anniversary of whose birth will be marked in September 2014, enjoyed a brilliant career during the course of which he was active at the most important theatres and ecclesiastical institutions in Naples, Rome, Venice, Bologna, Vienna and Stuttgart. He was admired by such significant personalities as Hasse and Metastasio.
Compared to the immense number of his operas, church music and sacred cantatas and oratorios, the chamber cantatas occupy only a small fraction of Jommelli's production. Unlike opera, this genre is concerned with showing great emotion in the shortest possible form by means of arias and recitatives. The realisation of this was solely the task of the music, for chamber cantatas were performed in purely concertante form and, unlike operas, not staged. The subjects are taken from classical mythology for the most part, and usually depicted as shepherd's idylls.
Stile Galante, directed by Stefano Aresi, present four cantatas for soprano by Jommelli - highly emotional works in which the Cuban soprano Yetzabel Arias FernŠndez can present her virtuoso abilities to best advantage.
