Description: In this 1676 oratorio we get to follow the action from Nebuchadnezzar's defeat of Zedekiah through his pursuit and capture of the Jewish king and the murder of his sons. Black, raging bass arias (Nebu), piteous soprano arias (the moribund sons), why-did-I-start-this-in-the-first-place tenor arias (Zed)... it all amounts to another quasi-operatic "sacred" work from, no, not Rome, Ferrara. Italian texts. Raffaele Giordani (tenor), Walter Testolin (bass), Lia Serafini, Francesca Lombardi Mazzulli (sopranos), Oficina Musicum; Riccardo Favero.
