Notes & Reviews:

Inaugurated in 1958, Das Alte Werk quickly gained a reputation for historically informed, high-quality recordings. As the field of early music spread wider and wider and new paths were constantly broken, the imprint rapidly became the touchstone by which other labels were judged, not least for its epoch-making complete recording of Bach's sacred cantatas. Originally released in 1974, this 3CD set of Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea features Nicolas Harnoncourt, his Concentus musicus Wein, and a singing cast that includes Helen Donath, Elisabeth Söderström and Cathy Berberian.

Notes & Reviews:
