Description
Born in Bologna in 1692, Italian composer Giovanni Alberto Ristori received his education from his father, a violinist in an Italian opera company, with whom he went to Dresden. He was later appointed chamber organist to the court of Saxony (1733) and church composer (1746). This program includes instrumental pieces and chamber duets for Lenten devotions.

"Echo du Danube uses a lute to accompany the vocal portions, save for the Versetto in Primo ton, where a harp and psaltery add a nice ethereal touch. The voices generally begin with a single lyrical line, such as in the 'O vinea electa' above a Baroque walking bass; here the weaving of the line nicely outlines the growing vine, and when the two voices combine the effect is magnified even further. Ristori has the capability to blend his lines contrapuntally, crossing and recrossing without interference or diminishing their clarity. Dorothee Mields and countertenor Franz Vitzthum have voices that are suited both to this type of music and to each other. The blend is clear and precise, with good intonation and an excellent sense of interpretation of the interwoven lines….. This is well worth having as a glimpse into the private world of court devotion, far removed from the pompous and extravagant display of the main public worship services…. A good anodyne to the usual Bach cantatas or larger masses."—Fanfare
