Description

In cultural and especially in musical aspects Italy had long been the big archetype for Europe and also for other countries beyond the occident. This is why it doesn't surprise much that Spanish and Latin American chapel masters like Baldassare Galuppi and Giacomo Facco adapted works of these great Italian composers in order to be ''up-to-date''. They reshaped the original Italian texts of the compositions and afterwards the music was established in liturgy.

The ensemble Albalonga has produced several first modern-day performances of works by Latin American composers as well as the recently discovered works of Giacomo Facco. Since its beginning the ensemble conducted by Anibal E. Cetrangolo is devoted to record the colonial American heritage regularly.

Reviews:

Toccata (07.07.2011)


The sopranos Roberta and Sylva Pozzer as well as the tenor Vincenzo di Donato deliver a very good performance, and the orchestra plays excellent. Not only lovers of Latin American music, but also friends of Italian opera of the eighteenth century will find their pleasure in this production.

Kleine Zeitung Graz (09.11.2008)


Aníabal E. Cetrangolo and his Argentine ensemble Albalonga invite you to an exciting journey of discovery. 4 of 5 Stars. (TSC)

American Record Guide, November/December 2008 (01.11.2008)


While the former [Cantata al Ssmo. con Violines] evokes celestial purity, the latter [Cantata Humana De Dos Arias Con Violon] is imbued with gentle and engaging intimacy as empathetic and perfectly-matched gamba and vocal soloists tell a tale of Phoebus, Tirsi, Filomena and Fileno. (C. Moore)

scherzo (01.10.2008)


Accompanied by an extravagant documentation and interpreted by the specialzed group Albalonga, the works of Galuppi, Facco and Pampani are assembled to be of high dramatic quality, virtuosity and emotion, all at the same time. (Asier Vallejo Ugarte)

Audiophile Audition (24.09.2008)


Best of Year Discs for 2008. The three superbly trained singers (Roberta Pozzer, sop.; Sylva Pozzer, sop.; Vincenzo Di Donato, tenor) perform their arias - loaded with enormously difficult ornamentations and variations - with controlled and assured legatos. (...) Listening to these superlative voices is a sheer delight. (...) This is not a disc to die for but rather to live for, and listen over and over again. (...) Highly recommended! (John Nemaric)

tokafi.com (12.08.2008)


It is a festive resolution to an album celebrating a rarly successful union of concept and creativity. (Tobias Fischer)

MusicWeb International, July 2008 (01.07.2008)


This is a fascinating CD, the fruit of much scholarly endeavour and - fortunately - of abundant musicianship too. (Glyn Pursglove)

ClassicalNet (12.06.2008)


(...) all the pieces are full of noble brilliance and stunning virtuosity. (...) An exciting instalment in this series with exemplary SACD sound and very eye catching presentation. (Gerald Fenech)
