Scarlatti: Mitridate Eupatore By The Ensemble Les Accents Conducted By Thibault Noally
Thibault Noally and ensemble Les Accents perform a state-of-art interpretation of Scarlatti’s masterpiece.
Three centuries after the composition, Thibault Noally ignites his orchestra as they rebirth this wonderful tale of Venetian glory. Scarlatti's Mitridate Eupatore, performed here at 35th edition of the International Festival of Baroque and Romantic Opera 2017 is also special as the instrumentalists swap their state-of-the-art violins for less-refined period instruments.
Scarlatti composed Mitridate Eupatore as a serious, noble and tense opera. Written at the tail-end of the Baroque era, he used bow instruments to create his distinct style which straddled the ages - including the "tromba marina", which was often used in Venetian operas. This concert was given on July 21, 2017 in Beaune as part of the International Festival of Baroque and Romantic Opera.
