For their first CD, the Vokalakademie Berlin and its director Frank Markowitsch took to the music of Alessandro Scarlatti (ROP6062). Likewise, they follow the tracks of another baroque-era Italian for their second production: a composer in the service of the Vienna court, the Venetian Antonio Caldara enjoyed the highest reputation and had all the freedom a composer could wish for.

His legacy includes more than 3500 works that are evidence of the vast musical diversity of this late-baroque master. Many of these pieces have almost been forgotten. The Vokalakademie Berlin has set out to change this fate and, once again, explores a musical niche with their CD “Salve Regina”. A collaboration with the Bassano Ensemble Berlin, it features sacred solo cantatas alongside polyphonic 16-part choir music, virtuoso arias and sonatas that display aspects and different periods of Mary’s life and their praise in Caldara’s music in an intimate and colourful fashion.
