An opera was prepared for performance at the court of Duke Eberhard IV Ludwig of Württemberg at the end of 1718. The duke had ordered that it be performed to conclude the Carnival season 1718 / 19 and commissioned his Italian court composer A. G. Brescianello to write a work for this occasion. The action is based on the popular tale of Pyramus and Thisbe, a source of inspiration for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. During the seventeenth century opera productions were regarded as a principal means of magnificent court display. It was thus that a spectacular opera was produced, situated in the vicinity of Vivaldi, Scarlatti, and Handel and requiring virtuoso castrato artistry for its dramatic coloraturas and heartrending laments. Il Giusto Barocco has rediscovered Brescianello's opera Tisbe in the holdings of the Württemberg State Library, submitted it to musicological examination, and now once again rendered it performable. Musically, this work represents a high point in Stuttgart court culture between 1700 and 1750. Following the concert premiere in 2012, Opernwelt wrote, »Jörg Halubek and the ensemble Il Giusto Barocco founded by him demonstrate with vibrant, supple […] playing that they now have a place in the first ranks of German baroque orchestras.« ---jpc.de

 

The music of Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello has reached few ears in modern times. It may therefore come as a surprise to find that not only is his music of the very highest standard – fit to rub shoulders with the likes of Bach, Handel and Vivaldi – but also that his only opera is a candidate for nomination as the finest baroque opera ever written. We think that his early career was spent in Venice before he was employed by the Electress of Bavaria as a violinist at the court in Munich. He subsequently moved to the Württemberg court in Stuttgart where he dedicated his opera pastorale to his employer, Duke Eberhard Ludwig, in January 1718. The tells the story of Pyramus (tenor) and Thisbe (soprano), and the ill-fated lovers are joined by two other characters who comment on the proceedings, Licori (contralto) and Alceste (bass). In addition, there is a chorus which closes Acts 1 and 2; the orchestra is made up of strings, recorders, oboes, bassoon and horns. The tunes are of the highest quality and the limited amount of recitative ensures that the dramatic pace is strong. The opera concludes most unusually with a recitative which follows a beautiful duet for Tisbe and Pyramo. We are uncertain as to whether a final chorus or even a balletto was supposed to draw an end to the proceedings. ---laserenissima.co.uk
