Notes & Reviews:

The musician Girolamo Crescentini was a very well known figure in the greatest theatres, both in Italy and abroad, at the end of the 18th century. He had started out as a castrato singer, but at the beginning of the 19th century he had already become singing teacher to the imperial family and court composer in Paris. This recording contains a monographic collection of six cantatas and 18 arias for voice and fortepiano composed in Paris in 1810, and a collection of six arias composed for the Queen of Holland. These pieces, which have a classical form and are based on texts by Metastasio, show musical characteristics that range from late Classicism to early Romanticism, with a certain influence of Mittel-European lied music, particularly in the piano part.
