For their first release, the Vokalakademie Berlin and it's director, Frank Markowitsch have taken to the music of Alessandro Scarlatti. Likewise, they follow the tracks of another baroque-era Italian for the second production - a composer in service of the Vienna court, the Venetian Antonio Caldara enjoyed the highest reputationa nd had all the freedom a composer could wish for. His legacy includes more than 3500 works that are evidence of the vast musical diversity of this late-baroque master. Many of these pieces have almost been forgotten. The Vokalakademie Berlin has set out to change this fate and, once again, explores a musical niche with their Salve Regina.
