Berenice che fai – Concert

 

CD PROGRAM

This concert celebrates Opera Fuoco’s latest recording, featuring three former members of the Opera Fuoco studio. Berenice is a compilation of late Baroque and early Classical works based principally on Metastasio’s famous 18th-century opera scene “Ah Berenice” from his opera Antigono. Not only was the scene set to music by such composers as Haydn and Hasse, but also by Antonio Maria Mazzoni and Marianna Martinez, a composer of Spanish descent who was widely connected to the Viennese music scene and, for a time, lived in the same noble house as Metastasio and Haydn at Grosse Michelstrasse. The young Mozart’s concert aria “Berenice” and Johann Christian Bach’s aria “Confusa, smarrita” from the composer’s lost pasticcio opera, Berenice, as well as Hasse’s Antigono overture complement the program.
