Steffani, Agostino

Dolce e per voi soffrire
E cosi mi compatite?
Gelosia, che vuoi da me?
Lontananza crudel, tu mi tormenti
Pria ch'io faccia
Saldi marmi che coprite
Vorrei dire un non so che

About

The music of Agostino Steffani was torn from oblivion by the successful album 'Mission” by Cecilia Bartoli. Subsequent issues of his music showed a highly original and prolific composer of instrumental music, sacred music and operas. Apart from his activities as a highly esteemed composer, he was also a diplomat in the service of Italy, accomplishing important missions to the courts of Europe.

This new recording presents delightful vocal duets for soprano and tenor, accompanied by a small instrumental ensemble of cello, theorbo and harpsichord. Both voices are perfectly equal, and foreshadow the duets from the famous operas by Haydn and Mozart.

The secular texts mainly deal with love, both fulfilled and unrequited.
