Cantatas Opus 1


Stile Galante
Stefano Aresi

Nicola Porpora’s Op1 set of Italian chamber cantatas receive a new and striking reading directed by Stefano Aresi, a leading interpreter of the Late Baroque composer. Neapolitan-born Porpora brough this nuove musiche with him in the early 1730s when he had set out for London (with his pupil Farinelli) to take advantage of the perceived wavering of Handel’s operatic fame there. Porpora, espying an opportunity there just as Handel himself had done before, quickly ingratiated himself with the nobility in Britain and his 12 cantatas, though probably written in Naples, were published under the patronage of Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales of Great Britain. They enjoyed substantial success at the time, and reflecting the primacy of Italian music across Europe, not least through Porpora’s masterly settings of Pietro Metastasio’s texts extolling Arcadian tastes and ideals.

These dozen works are shared between four singers from Stile Galante–Francesca Cassinari and Emanuela Galli, sopranos, Giuseppina Bridelli and Marina De Liso, contraltos–who have developed their interpretations, including the use of contemporaneous embellishments (such as strascino and cercardellanota), with the assistance of Livio Marcaletti. In addition to directing the project, Stefano Aresi contributes a stimulating booklet essay for this new Glossa L’amatonome release which will do much for the cause of modern-day historical reinterpretation of Porpora’s chamber vocal music.
