Francesco Bartolomeo Conti (1682-1732) left his hometown Florence, in which he had already been a lute player under Kardinals Francesco Maria de Medici in his teens, with 19 he applied to the royal palace of Austria. He also worked in Bernlin, where he met Giovanni Bononcini, and London. 1708 Conti became royal theorbe player in Vienna, from 1713 he was royal composer, writing operas, oratories, cantatas, Musicae sacrae, and a few instrumental pieces. Both as a instrumentalist and composer Conti was able to succeed. Sadly today he still is one of the big unresearched composers. Even if only one part of his work have been discovered, the quality of his compositions justify more study about him. This new CD from the series Unica vergessen, verkannt presents cantatas Sventurata Didone, Fra cetre, e fra trombe, Don Chisciotte in Sierra Morena, Teseo in Creta and Sinfonia in A-minor.
