ARIE E CANTATA PER CONTRALTO
Cessate, omai cessate, cantata RV 684 Liquore ingrato, aria.
L’innocenza sfortunata, aria.
Care pupille, aria.
O mie porpore più belle, cantata RV 685 Andrò fida e sconsolata, aria.
Sì, si bel volto che v’adoro, aria Semplice non temer, aria.
Qual in pioggia dorata, cantata RV 686 Per dar pace al tuo dolore, aria.
È pur dolce un’anima amante, aria.
Delphine GALOU, contralto
Ottavio DANTONE, conductor
Galou Offers Deeply Expressive Vivaldi
The latest release in Naïve’s Vivaldi Edition — which is recording the entire collection of the composer’s manuscripts at Turin’s Italian National University Library — gives the deepest feminine voice lots of love. This recital of arias and secular cantatas by Vivaldi is a tour of the timbral and expressive opportunities the composer heard in his altos. It’s also another extraordinary collaboration between French contralto Delphine Galou, Italian conductor Ottavio Dantone, and his period-instrument orchestra, Accademia Bizantina.
I love the idea of making baroque music more accessible to an audience that perhaps wouldn’t be listening to it if they were not guided by these images, that make music more reachable by anyone.Early Music America Italian music magazine AMADEUS interviews Delphine Galou
