Rinaldo Alessandrini & Concerto Italiano's new CD “Un viaggio a Roma” will be released on 21st September 2018.

 

Recorded at the Oratorio del Gonfalone, Rome (Italy), Concerto Italiano have been working on this recording for the last 3 years. 

 

"The programme on this CD provides a snapshot of music over a few decades. An incomplete
one, in that it focuses firstly on the contribution of Stradella, who lived in Rome between 1652
and 1678, with his S. Giovanni Battista, performed in the church of San Giovanni dei Fiorentini in
1675; then the visit of Georg Muffat, a Frenchman interested in Italian style, a pupil of Pasquini
between 1681 and 1682, and a great admirer of Corelli; the young Handel, who was the object
of admiration in the papal city between 1707 and 1709; Alessandro Scarlatti, prolifc, tireless
composer and musical traveller, and lastly Corelli, the classic symbol of the splendour of Roman
musical culture, who spent the whole of his life from 1675 ‘in urbe’." - Rinaldo Alessandrini
