Xavier Sabata - Countertenor
Music is the very soul of Venice. In every square, street, and canal, singing is to be heard, wrote Goldoni. Musical dilettantes were non-professionals who played for their own pleasure and enjoyment, to entertain themselves. This programme is devoted to a number of composers who, without being professionals, left their own very personal mark on the history of music. After Bad Guys , his first album for Aparté (2013), Xavier Sabata presents I Dilettanti , accompanied by the lively ensemble Latinitas Nostras. This recording, made in the singer‘s native Spain, bears witness to the sincere friendship between these artists, brought together by a passion for music, and to their dilettante spirit.
