Notes & Reviews:
Alessandro Stradella's music is gaining recognition and popularity among scholars more than three centuries after the composer's death. His adventurous life with his equally adventurous music paints a fascinating picture of this Italian Baroque composer. One of the foremost composers of sacred works during the 17th century in Italy, Stradella wrote his large scale oratorio San Giovanni Crisostomo in lyrical style with long, flowing phrases and very subtle characterization of the dramatis personae. The included booklet contains extensive scholarly liner notes as well as the full libretto in the original language.
