Tesori Musicali Emiliani (Emilian Musical Treasures)
General Editors: Francesco Lora & Elisabetta Pasquini
This series offers the edition of wide interest musics from an historical, stylistic and performing perspective – of them, renowned musicians and musicographers of international notoriety dedicate praise – owed to Emilian composers, Emilian by birth or by adoption, active in the 17th and 18th centuries.
In the ample range of the musical genres offered, a special interest is reserved to oratorios and musics for the liturgy: ambit of the most inspired expression by composers like G.P. Colonna, G.B. Bassani, D. Gabrielli, G.A. Perti and G.B. Martini, such genres reserve concrete evidence on the success of the music within fraternal orders and princely courts, and on the fullness and theatricality of the technical and artistic resources in the musical chapels practise.
