In an age when the demand for Italian musicians throughout Europe was at its peak, Giuseppe Sarti had an exceptionally successful and varied international career. Sarti, nicknamed "Il Domenichino," was primarily known as a composer of serious and comic operas. In the late eighteenth century, when comic opera was the musical entertainment of choice and the popularity of serious opera was in decline, his opere serie attained high acclaim. Franz Joseph Haydn admired his operas. Sarti was also a distinguished composer of sacred music; an accomplished contrapuntist, he mingled his mastery of polyphony with operatic effects.

Born in Faenza, Sarti went to study with the famed educator and composer Padre Martini in Bologna at the age of 10. He wrote his first opera, Pompeo in Armenia, in 1752, and a trip to Copenhagen the following year as the director of an opera troupe led to his appointment by King Frederik V of Denmark as court kapellmeister in 1755. During a three-year sojourn starting in 1765, he staged dramatic works throughout Italy and briefly became maestro di coro at Ospedalle della Pieta in Venice. Until his final departure from Denmark after a political dispute in 1775, he took on a series of roles at court, chapel, and theater. Upon his return to Italy, Sarti won the title of maestro di capella of Milan Cathedral in 1779, and his operas were mounted in numerous European cities. Among the pupils attracted by his renown was Cherubini. In 1784, at Catherine the Great's invitation, Sarti traveled to St.Petersburg to succeed Paisiello as director of the Imperial Chapel. Intrigues led to his estrangement from court, though he was immediately engaged by Prince Potemkin. In a village in Ukraine awarded him by the Prince, he founded a singing school. After being reinstated at the St. Petersburg court in 1793, he was made director of a conservatory in the Italian mold, where he invented an apparatus to measure pitch.

Sarti absorbed local trends in his years abroad. In Copenhagen, he wrote Danish singspiels; in Russia, he incorporated French operatic elements of the kind fashionable at court, and utilized Russian folk music in dramatic works written in the vernacular. He was sensitive to instrumental color and was quick to exploit exotic instruments like the serpent when they were available. His music, which fell into oblivion after his death, displayed forceful contrasts and an expansive approach to tonal, modal, and chromatic elements.

Giulio Sabino ("Julius Sabinus") is a dramma per musica (opera seria) in three acts by Giuseppe Sarti. The libretto was by Pietro Giovannini. The opera which is about the triumph of conjugal love. It is set in 1st century Gaul in the time of the Emperor Vespasian.

The opera, staged in six or seven European countries at the end of the 18th century, was the subject of a parody in Antonio Salieri's 1786 work Prima la musica e poi le parole.

It was first performed at the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice on 3 January 1781. The opera was revived in Ravenna in 1999.

 

Sarti was a contemporary of Mozart's and an extremely popular composer at that time. During the dinner at the end of "Don Giovanni", the orchestra plays excerpts from popular operas at the time, including Sarti's "Due Litiganti". However Sarti has been all but forgotten, there are very few recordings of his music so this set is a welcome (if pricey) opportunity to hear what else was going on around Mozart and Haydn in their heyday.

This is a 3 act opera seria, centering on the noble attempt by the Kings of the Sabines to resist the conquering Romans and protect his family. There are the standard opera seria arias about strength, love, despair, honor versus romance, etc. but Sarti manages to keep the pace moving despite the genre's somewhat stagnant conventions. Dry recitative is kept to a minimum except for a few spots, and amidst the majority of solo da capo arias Sarti colorfully utilizes orchestral recitatives, ensembles and instrumental asides. In addition, Sarti's pacing of the arias (how a certain mood, tempo or orchestral color follows another) is perfectly balanced, the music is never boring. It's also extremely technically difficult, and would be incredible save for the merely competent cast and subpar recorded sound from a live performance. Sonia Prina expectedly is the standout, handling the roulades of notes and sustained lyricism of the title character with assurance and her signature rich, bubbly/reedy contralto. Academia Bizantina is lush, transparent or forceful as the music requires (if somewhat reserved compared to other Italian period instrument groups). The rest of the cast is competent, never disappointing but rarely awe-inspiring.

At this price this one is probably a sure bet for aficionados, but otherwise not a must-have. ---AJS, amazon.com

One of the most interesting figures in the history of pre-romantic Russian music is Italian composer Giuseppe Sarti. Sarti arrived in St. Petersburg in 1784 at the request of Catherine the Great and stayed until the turn of the century, dodging court intrigues and benefitting from the intervention of nobles well-disposed to him. Sarti's Te Deum to celebrate the taking of Okachov (sometimes called his "Russian Oratorio") is one of the grandest and most over-the-top sacred works of the eighteenth century, rivaling Haydn's The Creation in sheer scale and bombast, if not artistic quality. While earlier Sarti had enjoyed a prosperous career in greater Europe that included lengthy positions in Copenhagen, Venice, and Milan, it is in Russia where Sarti is best remembered and his works are heard most often.

This setting of the Miserere is not a Russian work but something Sarti composed in Venice in the mid-1760s. For that time, it is a rather conservative setting and may have been written for the Ospedale della Pietà -- Vivaldi's old stomping grounds -- where Sarti was serving as chorus master. It almost could pass for Vivaldi, given its highly florid vocal writing, certainly influenced by opera, but the Red Priest had been in the grave more than decades when it was composed. However, that didn't keep this work from being very popular; it was widely circulated in manuscript and appeared in an undated print -- probably unauthorized -- in Leipzig, and in a way it is a little surprising that this Melodiya effort is apparently the first recording of the work. Regretfully, it really isn't very well performed -- the string playing is underpowered and slack, the continuo isn't together, and some of the entrances of the choir seem a little off in spots. ---Uncle Dave Lewis, AllMusic Review
