Biography

PAUL O'DETTE

Paul O’Dette has been called ‘the clearest case of genius ever to touch his instrument’ (Toronto Globe and Mail). Though perhaps best known for his recitals and recordings of virtuoso solo lute music, he maintains an active international career as a continuo player, and conducts baroque operas and orchestral programs throughout the United States and ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Alessandro Stradella was one of the more colorful characters of the 17th-century musical world: a Roman aristocrat, composer, marriage broker (!) and spendthrift who was chased by scandal and debt from Rome to Venice to Turin to Genoa, where he was stabbed to death at age 38. The music on this disc--two sinfonias (for violin and viola da gamba with continuo) and four cantatas for solo soprano--is entirely worthy of such a personality: melodies that don't end quite where you'd expect; impossibly long, giddy coloratura phrases; surprising effects, such as those of a violin playing a melody in parallel thirds using double-stops. It's very challenging for the musicians, certainly; but as this disc demonstrates, it's heady stuff when performed well. The instrumentalists, especially violinist Ingrid Matthews and gambist Mary Springfels, play with a winning combination of energy, good taste, and striking tone. Christine Brandes's slight, clear soprano isn't particularly distinctive, but she's an outstanding singer. The rapid descending scales of a jilted lover's furious lament, the lively grace of a simple triple-time air, the impossibly long runs and high notes of the extravagantly lamenting Ariadne: whatever Scarlatti dishes out, she handles with ease. --Matthew Westphal

5.0 out of 5 stars wow July 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful recording. Stradella's cantatas are extremely demanding, and here they are given a polished, technically magnificent performance - the last one, Ferma il corso, had me on the edge of my seat. The two sinfonias are very nicely done.
If you enjoyed this CD, check out Ms. Brandes's recording of four of Alessandro Scarlatti's cantatas with the Arcadian Academy (Conifer Classics).

5.0 out of 5 stars Stupendous singing July 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brandes is stunning in these cantatas, one of which is a "lament of Arianna" that will knock your socks off--it has enormous emotional range and vocal demands--for agility, range, tempo, expression. Stradella is an under-recorded Baroque composer. This CD will convince you.
