descrizione

Born in Milan in 1686, Andrea Stefano Fioré, though somehow forgotten over time, has to be considered as a true child prodigy concerning Italian music. While studying, among others, he was under the guidance of Arcangelo Corelli in Rome and he achieved great admiration and gained high esteem from some well-known contemporary artists, as J. J. Quantz (famous German flautist and composer), as well as Benedetto Marcello (Italian composer of great fame) who spoke of the composer’s “admirable knowledge” and “huge talent”.
Fioré had great influence especially at the Savoia Court, in fact the “Symphonies” which have been written by the composer at the early age of 13 years are stated as “resulting from a genious, rather than from a high-knowledged artist” have all been dedicated to sovereign Vittorio Amadeo II, Duke of Savoia and Prince of Piemont.
As was the case at that time, Fioré has been composed, aside from a wealth of sacred music dedicated to the Sabaudian Royal Chapel, a great number of vocal Arias, among which we find the memorable opera “Engelberta” which was performed at the Royal Ducal Theatre in Milan in 1708. Some of the most beautiful and expressive Arias of this Opera are to be found in this nice Concerto recording as a worldpremiere and performed by Angelo Manzotti with great passion and superb voice.
