Choir rehearsal room @ Maestranza

I’m sorry, this week I am so busy that I don’t really have time to keep on the serie of my favorite playlist! I will continue next week, I go to France to visit my family and will have some free time to enjoy some nice music together.

Now I’m working at Maestranza on an unknown opera of a spanish composer called Ramon Carnicer. The opera is called Cristoforo Colombo, so basically it is about the journey of Colomb to America.

It’s the second time in history that this opera will be performed, as it has been forgotten after its Première during the 19th century. Carnicer was a friend of Rossini and you can notice that in this opera : the text is in Italian although the composer was spanish, and the music is typical from this period: arias, recitatives, virtuosity… and lots of cadences !
