Once an insider’s tip, it is now as an international star that the countertenor Terry Wey presents sacred music from eighteenth-century Italy on the CD Conserva me Domine. The composer Benedetto Marcello, a Venetian nobleman who studied composition with Gasparini and Lotti and then went on to distinguish himself both as a composer and a poet, forms the special focus. Our chosen ensemble, La Gioia Armonica, was founded by Margit Übellacker and Jürgen Banholzer and is particularly fond of exploring the Baroque repertoire for the »salterio« (hammered dulcimer). This member of the zither family so very popular in Italy during the eighteenth century is heard on most of the works on this CD.
