Catalogue Number: 06U022
Reference: A 455
Description: Logroscino had long experience as a composer of opera and his 40-minute Stabat Mater of 1760 is a synthesis of operatic style, whereby lengthy arias alternate with lively duets, and passages of almost folk origins alternate with very simple recitatives. A brilliant Arcadian cantata for soprano and a flute concerto add up to 69 minutes of music from a very neglected member of the Neapolitan school. Italian-English texts. Giulia Semenzato (soprano). Raffaele Pe (countertenor), Marcello Gatti (flute), Talenti Vulcanici; Stefano Demichelli.
