A Garden of Earthly Delights: Marco Marazzoli’s extravagant musical entertainments

Marco Marazzoli’s miniature dramas present a kaleidoscopic variety of arias, duets, trios and quartets culminating in glorious choruses for six voices. Each cantata treats a different subject: one features Bacchus and his followers overindulging in the grape harvest, another recounts Radamisto’s daring escape from the clutches of vengeful King Tiridate. Il Riposo conjures the peace and tranquility of the papal retreat at Castel Gandolfo, while another, La Guerra e la Pace, is an allegory of the struggle between War and Peace. A thrilling cast of singers brings Marazzoli’s extraordinary harmonies to life accompanied by the incomparable BEMF Chamber Ensemble in a modern premiere of these magnificent works.
