Album Summary

>Bassani, Giovanni Battista : Giona, oratorio for soloists, strings & continuo
Performers Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Les Nations" is an ensemble specializing in the rediscovery of the oratorio musical form, from the Renaissance to the Baroque. In this production "Les Nations" is faced with an almost unknown author that, once again, proves he deserves a place amongst the greats. The few surviving works by Giovanni Battista Bassani, whose life remains mostly mysterious, testimony the incredible range and greatness of his musical writing. No exception is the Giona, the realization of which marked the debut of Bassani's oratorio at the court of Francesco II d'Este, Duke of Modena and Reggio, great lover of music, whose appointment had to be a great opportunity for the composer's artistic career, aware he could count both on an experienced and passionate client and almost unlimited resources.
