Francesco Cavalli is one of the main baroque opera composers of the XVIIth Century. His music is full of passion, dissonances, beauty, joy, and torment, and the ensemble of La GalanÃa, leaded by theorbo player JesÃºs Fernandez Baena and soprano Raquel Andueza, has compiled a selection of his most wonderful arias and duets for soprano and alto, creating themselves their own small play, Miracolo d'Amore, a love and betrayal story between the two singers. Raquel Andueza and Xavier Sabata, two of the main exponents of the XXIst Century baroques voices, show all their nuances and range of affection and vocal colors, and the refined instrumental ensemble of La GalanÃa is the perfect harmonic cushion for the two voices. This release is a true musical miracle of love.
