Notes & Reviews:
Although Haydn’s place in the history of the oratorio has been secured by his great vocal masterpieces 'The Creation' and 'The Seasons', his first oratorio, 'Il ritorno di Tobia' (The Return of Tobias), is among the better-kept secrets of music history. The Italian libretto deals with the return of Tobias and the curing of his blind father, an exceptionally popular story in eighteenth century Vienna. With its vivid portrayal of the protagonists’ emotional turmoil, achieved largely through wide-ranging arias of great virtuosity, 'Il ritorno di Tobia' is a work of considerable beauty and dramatic impact.
