Pedro Rabassa - Astro Nuevo
Pedro Rabassa - Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, Julia Doyle - Carlos Mena, Enrico Onofri
The Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, in collaboration with several universities, researches valuable repertoire linked to the history of Andalusia. This Proyecto Atalaya has already produced a series of CDs with unknown jewels, which have been released on Passacaille. On this new album called Astro Nuevo we can rediscover works by Pedro Rabassa (1683-1767). As a faithful musical partner of the orchestra, conductor Enrico Onofri proves once again that he can bring back to life music that has been completely forgotten, as if it had just been composed freshly for the orchestra. The result is sparkling, precise and convincing in every aspect. On this album the Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla is joined by Julia Doyle (soprano) and Carlos Mena (countertenor) as soloists.
