about this recording:
The works of Francesco Antonio Pistocchi have to be considered a discovery even though the singer was a well-known and highly esteemed personality in his day, was the voice teacher of the famous Padre Martini, and was engaged for a while as chapel-master at the court of Ansbach. The mellowness of Barbara Schlick’s and Kai Wessel’s voices, together with a fantastic continuo group, make this CD a very special listening experience.
