Info for ANTONIO: Lotti - Caldara - Vivaldi

New discoveries with countertenor Alex Potter and la festa musicale: Three Venetian contemporaries named Antonio - one, Vivaldi, achieved world fame with his concerti. But who has heard of Antonio Lotti and Caldara today? In their time, they were famous composers beyond the borders of Venice, and yet some of their music has lain dormant in archives for over three hundred years. Now selected alto cantatas by Lotti as well as oratorio introductions and an "Ave Regina" by Caldara may reawaken attention: paired with the "Nisi Dominus", RV 608, and two rousing concerti by Vivaldi, the baroque orchestra la festa musicale and the internationally acclaimed countertenor Alex Potter present an album full of virtuoso and touching musical treasures by the three Antonios from the Canal Grande.

Alex Potter, counter-tenor
la festa musicale

Alex Potter
Praised by The Times for his “ethereal tone and beautiful control”, Alex Potter is one of the leading countertenors on the European musical scene. Alongside numerous performances of works by Bach, Handel and other established composers, he takes particular interest in seeking out and singing lesser known repertoire in concerts and recordings under his own direction. He performs performs with prominent conductors including Philippe Herreweghe, Hans Christoph Rademann, John Butt, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Jordi Savall, Jos van Veldhoven, and Stephen Layton.

Recent performances of note include Bach’s B-Minor Mass with the Concertgebouw Orchestra/Philippe Herreweghe, concerts and a recording of works for solo countertenor by Vivaldi, Lotti and Caldara with the orchestra La Festa Musicale, a performance of works by Bach and Telemann with Arcangelo/Jonathan Cohen at the Wigmore Hall, and Benjamin Britten’s Abraham and Isaac with the tenor Thomas Hobbs in Vancouver, Canada. Most recently, together with Soprano Marta Mathéu and the orchestra Vespres d’Arnadí, he performed Handel - friends and foes at the Palau de la Musica in Barcelona, based on his own programme-concept of works by Handel and lesser-known contemporaries.

Alex Potter has a large discography with numerous ensembles and several solo recordings. Amongst others, he appears as on the recently released recording of Bach Cantatas with Philippe Herreweghe/Collegium Vocale Gent. A new disc with two of Bach’s solo-cantatas with Il Gardellino has just been released on the Pasacaille label.

After beginning his musical career as a chorister at Southwark Cathedral, Alex Potter was a Choral Scholar and read Music at New College, Oxford. He then went on to pursue further study in singing and baroque performance practice at the Schola Cantorum in Basel with Gerd Türk, taking additional classes with Evelyn Tubb.
