About

Agostino Steffani is one of those multi-talented personalities one often encounters in the baroque era – he was a man of the church who made it as far as titular bishop and mediator between Pope and Emperor.

He was a much-travelled diplomat and politician, as well, who held high state offices up to minister, and he was a composer who wrote operas for the courts in Munich, Hanover and Düsseldorf.

The Italian soprano Silvia Frigato and the Ensemble Castor trace the stages of Steffani’s life through a selection of arias from his operas.
