After the success of Officina Romana (awarded 5 Diapasons, 5 stars in Musica, and selected amongst the best albums in Le Monde in 2021), Le Stagioni, under the direction of Paolo Zanzu, invites the listener on a journey through 17th-century Venice in the company of outstanding singers: Emmanuelle de Negri, Blandine Staskiewicz, Paul-Antoine Bénos-Djian, Zachary Wilder and Salvo Vitale. From 1637 to 1645, between the opening of the first public opera houses and the start of the Cretan War, Venice witnessed a musical blossoming of international significance. Numerous operas were premiered on Venetian stages, with travellers from all over Europe in attendance. Alongside famous extracts of L'incoronazione di Poppea and Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria, Un secolo cantante allows us to hear little-known works by Cavalli, Sacrati and Strozzi, as well as previously unrecorded, forgotten pieces, making use of sources from the period and the most recent scholarship to offer a fresh listening experience of this fascinating music.
