MICHELANGELO FALVETTI (1642-1692): Nabucco.
Catalogue Number: 01P015
Description: If you remember the remarkable first release by this composer (12N015), a depiction of the Great Flood, you'll get the same impression here. This is Falvetti's only other surviving complete work (1683). From it's title, the subject will be well-known to you; as before, Alarcón and his period-instrument band add exotic percussion instruments to amplify Falvetti's own use of sinuous Arabic-style melodies to paint a vivid picture of Nabucco's Babylonian court. Italian-English texts. Namur Chamber Choir, Cappella Mediterranea; Leonardo García Alarcón.
