About

Francesco Gasparini was held in high esteem by his contemporaries, as can be easily seen from his curriculum vitae.

In Rome he was in the service of the great patrons of the arts Cardinal Pamphili, Marchese Ruspoli and the Borghese family, and in between he was music director at the Ospedale della Pietŗ in Venice for twelve years, at the same time as Antonio Vivaldi.

Gasparini wrote a total of almost 60 operas and nearly 30 oratorios, which were performed in many Italian cities.

The countertenor Filippo Mineccia has cherry-picked the repertoire that suits his voice and presents a portrait of Gaspariniís alto arias. He was very careful to select arias with different effects in order to present Gaspariniís broad dramatic palette.

Slow arias are interspersed with furioso pieces and contrapuntal pieces. Particularly brilliant are the rage arias, in which Mineccia is able to display all his vocal prowess.

In the richly orchestrated and harmonically exciting arias from Gaspariniís oratorios, the Orchestra Nazionale Barocca dei Conservatori Italiani can shine with its qualities.
