Alessandro Stradella (1639-1682): Duets / Emma Kirkby, soprano; Susanne Rydén, soprano, Sergio Foresti, bass

Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

A successful Roman composer by age 20, Alessandro Stradella's more adventurous day-to-day pursuits included attempts to embezzle the Catholic Church, affairs with wives and mistresses of important aristocrats and occasionally fleeing cities to escape would-be aggressors, activities possibly leading to his eventual murder in 1682. Despite all this, he still found time to write more than 300 compositions, including the vocal duets heard here, performed by esteemed singers including Emma Kirkby & Susanne Rydén with the acclaimed ensemble Harmonices Mundi, directed by Claudio Astronio.
