Notes and Editorial Reviews

An outstanding Italian musician, Stefano Demicheli René Jacobs' closest assistant for a very long time, and has performed with him on many of Europe's main opera stages. A distinguished harpsichordist, who studied with Ottavio Dantone, he is now the leader of the Dolce & Tempesta ensemble, comprising of the best soloists from top European period instrument ensembles. Their first recording is resolutely original, and includes the world premières of the three 'Notturni' composed in c.1740 by Porpora for the All Souls Day in Naples. Carried by one of the most powerful expressive texts in the Christian religion, Monica Piccinini and Romina Basso, accompanied by the Stagione Armonica, offer a nice discovery, full of surprises.
