Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents Johann Kuhnau's masterpiece, one of the most extraordinary examples of what would come to be called program music two centuries later. It is performed by the young harpsichordist Federico Caldara in its original, uncut version, including recitatives narrated by the actor, Luciano Bertoli. These texts, which have been adapted from the Old Italian language of the original, introduce the episodes that are then "described in music", bringing stories of love, battles and Biblical dramas to life. This is a unique and remarkable work by a composer who is still little known, but because of his importance in the development of the sonata for harpsichord, as well as the influence he had on Bach himself cannot continue to be underestimated.
