Mirando il cielo. 17th century Italian Cantatas
With Ferran Pisà (musician and performer) and Eulàlia Fantova (singer)
The fact of being one voice that melodies the text allows a whole series of dramatic resources that until then have not been heard. This song, with its expressive possibilities and being a single character who sings, comes to derive in the birth of the opera in 1600.
The first composers of music in the new vocal style (Peri, Monteverdi and Caccini) have the obsession that the song resembles speech, as much as possible; the melody by itself can not be beautiful, the melody must serve so that the words are understood well and because it portrays the mood of the singer.
