About this Recording

SAMMARTINI: Gerusalemme sconoscente ingrata / Confitebor / Symphonies

Sammartini had a long and active musical career, working as maestro di cappella or organist in as many as ten different churches, yet surprisingly few of his sacred compositions survive. In the sacred cantata Gerusalemme sconoscente ingrata, set to a text from another of his cantatas, La perfidia giudaica nella SS. Passione di Gesù Cristo, vocal texture is dominated by a typically Italianate melodiousness and virtuosity, while the orchestral writing is full of daring harmonies, sparkling themes, and an inexhaustible wealth of ideas. Other sacred cantatas by Sammartini are available on Naxos 8.557431, 8.557432 and 8.570254.
