Manuel Lipstein’s debut album mixes modern, expressive, virtuoso cello works with refined fantasies by the old master Georg Friedrich Telemann in a programme built on spontaneity, creativity and imagination. Hindemith composed his eloquently varied solo sonata in just a few days as part of a bet with fellow composers. Eric Feldbusch’s suite Mosaïque comprises eloquent improvisations based on traditional Jewish melodies and a lively wedding dance. Manuel Lipstein’s prowess as a cellist are clearly reflected in his own composition, Four Dream Images, while the vivacity of Spanish dancers comes alive in Gaspar Cassadó’s romantic Suite for solo cello.

The three Italian choral works on this album cast new light on pre-existing musical material. Corrado Margutti’s Missa Lorca fuses the words of Federico Garcia Lorca with an evocation of Monteverdi’s polyphonic textures to create fascinating sounds, as the two movements from the Mass reveal. Pizzetti’s Messa di Requiem, the first of his great choral compositions, offers a wealth of expressive detail notably the use of Gregorian chant in music of huge range and richness. Lorenzo Donati’s Sicut Cervus fittingly concludes this selection as it threads music from Palestrina into his piece illuminating the past with vivid new colours.

In the early 1670s, soon after Venetian opera became established in Naples, a series of comic figures began to inhabit secular but also sacred operas. These stock characters included the Neapolitan, the Calabrian and the Boy, and all three plus a fourth, ‘The Spaniard’, appear in a comic intermezzo inserted in the 1673 opera Il disperato innocente by the little-known Francesco Antonio Boero. This is the oldest surviving Neapolitan comic intermezzo, and, along with its Prologue, seems to have been written by other authors. This video preserves a historically informed performance given by Antonio Florio with Pino De Vittorio that explores the tradition of the intermezzo in 17th century plots.
