Oboe Concerto in E flat major
ArtistsMaria Savastano (soprano)
Jon Olaberria (oboe)
The princess of Saxony wrote the libretti for three cantatas; three powerful monologues by three powerful women, masterfully set to music by Ristori: Dido, abandoned by her love and in complete despair, throws herself into the flames; Lavinia, forced to leave her fiancé, tries to explain her action; Nice, taken by hallucinations, accuses Cupid as being very unhelpful.
These three heroines are entrusted to the breathtaking vocal technique of an award-winning soprano and to an ensemble that is setting new standards in the interpretation of baroque music.
The brilliant Oboe Concerto will surely enter the repertoire of oboists everywhere.
Johannes Pramsohler describes soprano Maria Savastano as: “....world class and a huge discovery. This is a fabulous recording which I am extremely proud of: the world premiere of some breathtaking cantatas for Soprano and orchestra and an oboe concerto by Giovanni Alberto Ristori who was the deputy-kapellmeister to Hasse in Dresden.”
María Savastano has been hailed by La Nación as “the new Argentinean promise of classical singing.” The remarkably versatile and expressive singer was a member of the Instituto Superior de Artes del Teatro Colón and of the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra national de Paris.
