Notes and Editorial Reviews

The revival of the 1685 oratorio Moses, Leader of the Jewish People for five voices, trumpet, and strings celebrates the 350th anniversary of the birth of Giacomo Antonio Perti, a versatile Bolognese musician born in 1661. This miniature opera presents a series of characters that are skillfully outlined by Perti’s lively music. Perti’s arias require great virtuosity in the singers; this edition, recorded by the Ensemble Les Nations, features some of the best Italian specialists of baroque singing. The trumpet is an unusual presence, but this instrument was much appreciated in the Bolognese musical milieu of that period, and it lends a unique instrumental timbre to the composition.
