Album Notes
Dramma is a SACD album containing different kind of arias in dramma per musica context: opera seria, dramma giocoso, oratorio and serenata, covering a range of topics from ombra to brilliant styles, matching with 3 virtuoso concertos for violin, violoncello and flute. The focus is the rare production by iberian and italian masters who influenced luso-brazilian context. The composers featured in this cd keeps many parallels combinations of styles of composition, produced to court, public and religious venues along 18th century. Orquestra Barroca do Amazonas / Amazonas Baroque Ensemble recorded all tracks in Igreja do Menino Deus (Jesus Church), a 1725 Lisbon building with history related to many works and composers featured in this cd. The perfect acoustical conditions produced a natural color and spacial distribution of sound as once could be heard at the time of premiere of this stuff. Vocal soloists included brazilian soprano Mirian Abad and portuguese baritone Armando Possante. Solo parts in the concertos is held by Gustavo Medina (violin), Edoardo Sbaffi (violoncello) and Marcio Páscoa (flute and musical direction). Palomino violin concerto is a premiere on CD and the music was probably composed in 1778-1804 period. About cello concerto lying doubts about authorship, once Policarpo was a cembalist and primely a virtuoso tenor, here probably the owner of the musical manuscript. The high level of solo part points to Avondano family members as Pedro Antonio (1714-1782) or João Baptista André (fl.late 18th century), the most important cello virtuoso in Portugal those days. Perez flute concerto can remains to Italy times but keeps many similar details with a late flute concerto (OBA; 2012) and it can be a study piece or sketch for mature works. Both Sousa Carvalho arias in C minor shows the painful and anxious atmosphere ver well managed by the composer. Ezio (1772) arias reveals a superior treatment for each role in later Jommelli opera, specially in this one written specially for José I of Portugal. Mirian Abad and OBA / ABE has a debut album (Dei Due Mondi, Numerica, 2012) very welcomed by Early Music America Magazine reviewers.
