 The primordial ooze from which the classical symp August 14, 2013 By Jeff B. (Billings, MT) See All My Reviews "I've always enjoyed and been fascinated with these recordings. Most know Pergolesi for his celebrated sacred works. These recordings illuminate the music he wrote as symphonic overtures to his operas such as Salustia from 1732, Il prigioner superbo from 1733, and L'Olimpiade from 1735. The music conveys a wonderful lyrical quality and we can but wonder at how striking it was to listeners during this time. In fact, it was such that a number of copycats came along to make the absolute authentication of much of the music attributed to Pergolesi difficult. The producers of this disc were very careful to choose only those pieces of the composer that could be certainly verified. I think you will be enchanted at hearing some of the very first symphonic music that we might recognize as fitting the "classical" model." Report Abuse
