Divotti Affetti Alla Passione Di Nostro Signore
Zelenka, Heinichen or hatred are no longer an insider. But there's more to make delightful discoveries such as Giovanni Alberto Ristori (1692-1753) among the composers of the Dresden Baroque, among others in Dresden served as court organist and assistant music director and had often represented it's absent or ailing colleague Hasse and Zelenka. He provided the Court Church with numerous sacred works, which are of remarkable quality and a Dresdner special this time have: to 1751 served in Dresden namely the remodeled Klengelsche Opera House as a Catholic Court Church. The relatively small building offered for the musicians, although very little space, but it had an excellent acoustics. The composer responded with small, sometimes even intimate occupations. Ristori Divoti Affetti for Lent can actually call in this context as a "chamber duets for the Church". Their musical language mixed in so delightful way secular and religious elements, so that they were in use in Dresden until well into the 19th century. Listening to the stations with Dorothée Mields and Franz Vitzthum, then you know why.
