- Michael Borgstede (Harpsichord)
Notes & Reviews:
Musica ad Rhenum has earned a special place in the early music world, with critics describing the ensemble's performances as "cutting- edge" and "exhilarating." The group are joined by a fantastic set of vocal soloists, with Johanette Zomer assuming the role of Aminta and Alexe Gregoriev playing Alexander the Great.

Mozart wrote Il Re Pastore in 1775, still in his teens and six years before Idomeneo, his first opera that holds a place in the standard repertory. It has seemingly endless recitative, punctuated by arias. The best singing comes from Francine van der Heijden, as Elisa, and especially Claudia Patacca, as Tamiri.
Personnel: Johannette Zomer (vocals); Alexei Grigorev, Marcel Reijans, Claudia Patacca, Francine van der Heijden (vocals).
