A. G. Brescianello’s (1690-1758) Tisbe, based on the popular tale of Pyramus and Thisbe, was the result of a commission from the Duke Eberhard IV Ludwig of Wurttemberg to his court composer to write a work to conclude the Carnival season 1718/19. Il Giusto Barocco rediscovered the opera in the Wurttemberg State Library, submitted it to musicological scrutiny, and rendered it once again performable. “Jorg Halubek and Il Giusto Barocco…demonstrate they now have a place in the first ranks of German baroque orchestras.” (Opernwelt, following the 2012 concert premiere)
