  • Description

    Una notte onirica is an enchanting musical journey, dedicated to the sacred and profane passions of 17th-century Italy. A soprano and six instrumentalists set up a nocturnal, intimate and sometimes disturbing atmosphere thanks to motets and sonatas by Cazzati, Turini, Marini, Rossi, Cesti and others.

    The torments of a jealous lover follow the luminous antiphons for the Virgin and sinfonie and lamenti compete in virtuosity. Una notte onirica is the illustration of an abundant and colourful Italian night, like a new carnival dedicated to Nyx, the goddess of the night.

    "The music of this dreamy, sensual night delights with its dance-like gestures and rich, rapidly changing affects [in] the excellent interpretation by the musicians of the very subtle Ensemble Agamemnon." – Pizzicato ****
