We owe this past years’ musical archaeology research to the presentation of our forthcoming concert. We are excited to share our latest hidden musical treasure! ♪♫♬

As the title suggests, we are in possession of a somewhat mysterious aria... Mysterious yes, but not completely unknown!

Thanks to the knowledge of our soprano, Liesl Odenweller, we know that the piece derives from the opera La Nitteti: A melodrama written in 1756 by Metastasio, a great poet, playwright and librettist of the 1700s, and then transcribed into music by various musicians such as Piccinni, Conforto (most famous version directed by Farinelli), Anfossi and Hasse.

Hasse, a well-known composer, is another protagonist of the concert we are going to present, specifically because he set the music to the libretto Metastasio we intend to preform; in its world premiere, the symphony and two arias of his Nitteti.
