ANTONIA BEMBO (c.1640-c.1710): Produzioni Armoniche.
Catalogue Number: 01K017
Description: A Venetian who fled her brutal husband and ended up composing for Louis XIV's court at Versailles, Bembo's arias and cantatas derive their style from early Italian opera and the feminine portraits they offer, using the poetic conventions of the Renaissance and baroque, remind us of the tragic heroines of those works. Italian-English texts. Maria Jonas (soprano), Convoce.
