Product Description

CD Description

Marianna Martines was one of the most accomplished and highly honoured female musicians of the eighteenth century. She studied with the young Joseph Haydn and was known in Vienna to be a gifted singer and keyboard player, who performed duets with Mozart himself. Despite the fact that many of her compositions appeared in print during her own lifetime many of her works are still missing, among them a total of probably 28 sonatas and eight concertos for harpsichord.
This album includes four world premiere recordings, and is released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Marianna Martines who died on March 11th 1812. The 28-page booklet is complete with elaborate liner notes and full libretti in German, English and French.
Spanish Catalan soprano Nuria Rial is famous for her shining, crystal clear and beautiful voice and is one of the most fitting voices for baroque arias. She was described as "a silvery sounding voice, as clear as a bell" (Opernglas).
Nicholetta Paraschivescu is a dedicated harpsichord player and musical director of "La Floridiana". Concerts have taken her across Europe and to major festivals such as the Davos Festival, Bach Dies Cremona, the Rheinland-Pfalz Organ Festival, Culturescapes Basel and the L'Aquila Festival in Rome. La Floridiana is a Swiss-based, period instrument ensemble that performs unknown works in the main that have been unearthed in libraries and private collections with the aim of expanding the current repertoire of the Early Music scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a surprise! 21 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had never heard about Marianna Von Martines, but, surely, after this CD I am not going to forget her.
She should have been a really remarkable woman, whose life was spent among some of the most famous intellects of her time: Metastasio, Haydn, Porpora (all taught her) and, last but not least, Mozart (who wrote music and played with and for her). Listenend and admired by one of the most great woman of all time (emperess Maria Theresa), she never made of her music a profession, being not suitable for a woman of her standing.
This about her life, but her music? Well, my humble opinion is: the most similar to a Mozart's composition I ever heard. That kind of music where every single note is at its place, rich of melody, graceful and incredibly weightless. Not as crystal-clear as Mozart's music, not showing the same deepness and psychological richness, but nonetheless elegant, funny, sweet. To make it short: something worth to be known and listened.
In this CD we have a good choice of her far than huge production, presenting also some of the vocal music that - allegedly - Marianna composed to be sung by herself. Nuria Rial sings beautifully, even though sometimes I find her voice a little too light and thin: I have the impression that these arie and cantata would improve if sung by a richer voice; but it is only my opinion and, certainly, Rial is never wrong or disagreable here.
Very interesting also the concerto and sonata per cembalo, instrument that Marianna learned to play from Haydn. Joyful, agile music, here beautifully played by Nicoleta Paraschivescu. I rarely appreciate harpsichord, maybe because I am too used to listen harpsichord music played on piano, but in this case it has been delightful and I could truly appreciate the original sonority conceived for these pieces.
So, if you feel a bit adventurous, and you want to try something new, but also very familiar, you can try this disc. I am pretty sure you could find something really pleasant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Great Women: Martinez, Paraschivescu & Rial 23 May 2012
By Luke Agati - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Should you purchase this latest Martinez compilation and enjoy it as much as I did, then I can safely say that you've made an excellent choice. For not only did you invest in a fascinating new recording, but I have no doubt that you will receive many years of listening pleasure from it; which is certainly a great investment to me! Marianna Martinez is another of those countless and celebrated composers who were not only eminent in their day, but have sadly fallen into obscurity with the passing of time. As a composer, she was certainly of no mediocre talent - indeed far from it. I first came across Martinez's music about fifteen years ago, having purchased the Koch Schwann Aulos (3-1788-2; 1995) recording of her two Psalm Cantatas - 'In Exitu Israel' and 'Dixit Dominus' for soloists, choir and orchestra, played by the Clara Schumann Orchestra Koln & the Kolner Kurrende under the direction of Elke M. Blankenburg. Even though I greatly admired the performance and the recording, I was really mesmerized by the music of this charming composer. It was to my delight that I was informed recently through Amazon's `recommendations' that a second recording of Martinez's gorgeous music with orchestra has hit the `shelves' so to speak.

This latest CD from Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, entitled `Il Primo Amore' is a beautiful compilation, the sound recording is crystal clear and the performances are truly first class. Happily, I was unable to single out any imperfection in the recording or the playing, nor for a moment had I received any inkling of reservation. The European soprano, `Nuria Rial', who is unknown to me, sings with colour, vibrancy, grace and elegance - no doubt reflecting the ambience of the music of the period. This she does extremely well in the cantata 'Il Primo Amore' (1778) and 'Berenice, ah che fai?' (1767). Nicoleta Paraschivescu, the founder of the ensemble `La Floridiana', as well as its conductor and harpsichordist, deserves every accolade for putting this orchestra together and bringing the very soul of Martinez back to life. As a solo performer in Martinez's 'Harpsichord Concerto in E major', her playing is magnificent. With clear and distinct articulation and beautiful phrasing, the harpsichord is almost transformed from instrument to concert vocalist. This is a brilliant recording and a must have for any connoisseur of fine eighteenth century music. I hope to see and hear more new recordings of this calibre from Rial and Paraschivescu in the very near future.

3.0 out of 5 stars NO NOTES-----SHAME ON SONY/BMG 2 Dec 2012
By charles powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just purchased this CD after I read the review in the International Record Review.
It is a beautiful recording and I really love Nuria Rial, BUT WHERE ARE THE NOTES on the recordings some I believe World Premieres?? These are works that every music collector should know about!!
All that is listed on the back are the tracks--- no breakdown on what is performed.
I will have to track down somewhere else for ANY notes.
Again let me say I love the recording but BEWARE there is NOTHING on the composer NOR the contents.
Shame, shame and a triple shame on SONY/BMG.

3 stars NOT for the performances/works BUT for the lack of information.
