This double album was realized by Giulio Cesare Ricci at Minoritenkirche, Minoritenplatz in Vienna on May, 2000.
It should be noted that this is a live recording made in the church where Antonio Salieri was buried.
The choice of this location was dictated by its wonderful acoustics which allowed to obtain an exceptional result.
La Passione di Gesù Cristo is an oratorio written by Pietro Metastasio poet, dramatist, librettist considered the reformer of Italian melodrama.
The oratorio represents a detachment from the settings of the passion stories present in the Gospel, towards a more theatrical style.
The four central roles are those of S. Pietro, St. Giovanni, Maria Maddalena e Giuseppe d'Arimatea who answer Pietro's questions about the crucifixion.
The content is spiritual motivated by the solid tradition of oratorial executions that took place in the imperial chapel during the period of Lent and Holy Week.
To enhance the Minoritenkirche acoustics, Giulio Cesare Ricci used the original tube microphones Neumann U47 and M49 and all its equipment: advanced mike pre-amplifiers Nagra, Analog Tape Recorders Nagra 4s, line, microphone and supply cables Signoricci.
The original master were transferred from Nagra 4s directly to DSD.
With this recording, Giulio Cesare Ricci wanted the listener to live a unique experience: it is as if he were sitting on an armchair positioned in the ideal position of the Minoritenkirche.
In this position, the depth, width and height of the sound are very appreciated.

An album not to be missed!
