Domenico Cimarosa (17 December 1749, AversaProvince of Caserta – 11 January 1801, Venice) was an Italian operacomposer of the Neapolitan school. He wrote more than eighty operas during his lifetime, including his masterpiece, Il matrimonio segreto (1792).

Cimarosa was born in Aversa in Campania.  His parents were poor, but, anxious to give their son a good education, they sent him to a free school connected with one of the monasteries in Naples after moving to that city. The organist of the monastery, Padre Polcano, was struck by the boy’s intellect, and voluntarily instructed him in the elements of music and also in the ancient and modern literature of his country. Because of his influence, Cimarosa obtained a scholarship at the musical institute of Santa Maria di Loreto in Naples, where he remained for eleven years, chiefly studying with great masters of the old Italian school; Niccolò PiccinniAntonio Sacchini, and other musicians of repute are mentioned among his teachers.

Cimarosa: “Il Matrimonio segreto” – Ouverture (Daniel Barenboim)

The Secret Marriage is an opera buffa in two acts written by Domenico Cimarosa between the end of 1791 and beginning of 1792 with a libretto by Giovanni Bertati .
Was performed for the first time February 7, 1792 at the Burgtheater in Vienna.

It was the only work of history that , at the behest of the Habsburg emperor of the time ( ie Leopold II ) , was completely replicated in the same evening of the “first ” .

Visit the blog http://operaomniablog.blogspot.com/ , in which the work is analyzed piece by piece . The site also presents other works , being devoted entirely to the world of opera .
I propose a third version of this song which is in addition to those which I have already posted the overture , and of course the aim is to foster the musical competence of users through the comparison between the various versions of individual songs .
