Nightingale Soars on YouTube

During Old Post Road’s recording sessions for the Roman Handel CD last spring, another artist was busy with a parallel creative pursuit: filmmaker Bob Giordani was recording footage for making short documentary films about the ensemble. The first of his projects—a film of the nightingale aria from Bononcini’s cantata Fuori di sua capanna was completed in the early Fall and posted on YouTube soon after. Bob’s atmospheric, clever, and artful insider’s view of the performance has garnered praise and considerable attention, with over 1,000 hits already in its relatively short posting time.
