The Fake Twins
Piccinni: Le finte gemelle (The Fake Twins) Eliana Bayon (soprano), Célia Cornu-Zozor (soprano), Valeri Tsarev (tenor), Camille Reno (baritone) Orchestre de Chambre de Genève, Franco Trinca Le finte gemelle was first staged in 1771. Success was immediate and other performances followed both in Italy and abroad. With Le finte gemelle Piccinni returned to a genre he had already tried ten years previously with La Cecchina ossia La buona figliola (1760), on a text by Goldoni. A sweeping success, that masterpiece had made him famous in all theatres well before he found himself at the centre of the well-known dispute between Gluck and Piccinni supporters, which would explode in Paris in 1778, after the performance of his Roland (Dynamic CDS 367/1-3). The present live recording, in co-production with the Opéra de Chambre de Genève, features a young and qualified cast who masterfully render the spirit of this score by Piccini.
