Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Haydn not only wrote a large number of solo songs, he also produced a significant number of small-scale cantatas. These remarkable works for solo voice and keyboard have the musical depth of dramatic concert settings in miniature. Written in either 1789 or 1790, Arianna a Naxos is especially powerful and almost symphonic in scope. In fact, Haydn intended to orchestrate the work, but for some reason, never took up the task. Mezzo Stephanie d'Oustrac and fortepianist Aline Zylberajch wield a rich palette of emotions and timbre, creating a recording that illuminates Haydn's foreshadowing of romantic composers, Schubert in particular.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The chorus has an important musical and dramatic role, and their scene of mass human drowning is made all the more horrifying as the words "vita" and "morte" are rendered incomplete as singers gasp and gulp in vain. Death is played by a countertenor, here the very fine Fabian Schofrin, actively setting about his task and boldly whirling his scythe in the dotted rhythms of 'Da Le Caverne Oscure'; and God, played by the excellent bass Matteo Bellotto, plunges to the very lowest vocal registers with ease. These are just two of the extremely fine performers in this splendid release.
