Notes & Reviews:
In the 18th century Venice and Rome were the only Italian cities that could rival Naples in the realm of music. From all over Europe, young musicians hurried to these centers to complete their studies and meet the greatest living composers. One of these was Francesco Feo, a close friend of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, whose music is preserved in the Biblioteca dei Filippini in Naples. His masterwork was probably the St. John Passion, composed around 1740 and probably meant to pair with the Pergolesi Stabat Mater. La Divina Armonia, directed by Lorenzo Ghielmi, now presents the world premiere recording of this wonderful music.
Francesco Feo's masterwork presented by La Divina Armonia directed by Lorenzo Ghielmi. Booklet features beautiful photographs of the Sacro Monte di Varese, an impressive baroque monument.Notes & Reviews:
