Cimarosa, Il maestro di capella

This "intermezzo giocoso" for bass and orchestra by Domenico Cimarosa
features Maurizio Muraro in the solo part. The conductor is Ton Koopman.
The Dutch musician was born in 1944 and ranks among the outstanding
specialists in the field of historical performance practice. He studied
organ, harpsichord and musicology in Amsterdam and turned to conducting
during his training. From the very beginning, he used original instruments
and combined theory and practice into a fascinating, historically
well-founded interpretation of the works. In 1979 he founded the Amsterdam
Baroque Orchestra. He is the principal conductor of the Netherlands Radio
Chamber Orchestra. As a performing artist and teacher, Koopman has made
decisive contributions to the renaissance of the music of the 17th and
18th centuries. He has published many books and articles, teaches at the
Conservatory of The Hague and is an honorary member of the Royal Music
Academy in London. The Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg goes back to the
"Dom-Musik-Verein und Mozarteum" founded in 1841. Since 1938 it has been an
independent institution with professional musicians. It has been the
orchestra of the city and the Land of Salzburg since 1958 and, in addition
to its activity as opera and concert orchestra, it also performs regularly
at the Salzburg Festival and the Mozartwoche.
