Description
One of the most prominent personalities in the musical life of Palermo, Bonaventura Aliotti (1640–90) was maestro di cappella for some of the primary religious institutions of that Sicilian capital. One of four surviving oratorios by this Franciscan friar, organist, and composer, Il Sansone set to music the Biblical story of the hero Samson, who fought against the Philistines and was betrayed by Delilah. As the detailed liner notes tell us, "the arias are of ample proportions and require singers of considerable vocal means"—which, happily, conductor Gabriel Garrido has at his disposal. The two protagonists are expressively characterized in their music, and both Francesc Garrigosa and Adriana Fernandez bring their joys and sorrows vividly to life. The rest of the work is equally sophisticated, bearing out the phrase "marvelous concert" used by a 17th-century writer to describe Aliotti's music.
