If he’s not as famous nowadays as his contemporaries and compatriots Francesco Durante and Leonardo Leo, Francesco Feo still is a major representative of the great Neapolitan school; he incidentally left his position at the Conservatorio di Sant'Onofrio in Naples to Leo to take the one left vacant by Durante at the Conservatorio dei Poveri di Gesù Cristo, still in Naples: it says it all about this superb melting pot that was the kingdom of the Two Sicilies (of which Naples was the capital city) in its heyday. The oratorio San Francesco di Sales, Apostolo del Chablais was performed for the first time in Bologna in January 1734, then again a few years later in Venice, an obvious proof that the work achieved some recognition. By the way, Feo, with the full weight of his sixteen operas—whose first put for the first time into music the libretto of a newcomer, Metastasio—was one of the most highly regarded composers of his time, not only in Naples but also in Vienna and in Madrid, and we can wonder why the hell his music isn’t broadcasted more nowadays. We can bet that this recording, a world premiere (the partition was only very recently recreated), will put him back on the foreground of the Italian baroque scene that he should legitimately share with Leo and Durante. The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Fabio Biondi, adjoined the skills of a perfect set of singers. © SM/Qobuz
