The world of  cantatas for soprano, mandolin, violins and  basso continuo is a wonderfully refined and original one. The music has been brought straight from Library shelves. Artemandoline  has been updating centuries old forgotten manuscripts for a long time now. These musical treasures are full of surprises, having been found in libraries owned by local aristocracies, they recall the music  performed in their residences. An  invitation to the intimate setting of an Austrian or Italian Court at the beginning of the  XVIIIth century.Contrasting voices and instruments performing as a solo or together will compete with charm and impetuosity to conjure  up the vivacity and the beauty of the  Italian music at the time. The program includes Cantatas by Caldara, Bononcini, Conti, Händel, Albinoni, Hasse, Gasparini, Paisiello and Mancini.

REVIEW

[...] Artemandoline revives the music of the Austrian and Italian courts at the beginning of the 18th century. The soprano Nuria Rial offers here a beautiful range of tunes in which the voice dialogue with the plucked strings of the mandolin.
