Album Summary

>Mazzoni, Antonio : Antigono, opera
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • The score to Antonio Mazzoni's Antigono, thought lost since the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, was recently discovered at the Rio de Janeiro National Library. It was still playing when the earthquake struck.
  • Its world premiere release now on CD by DYNAMIC is a major event for Baroque opera buffs.
  • Enico Onofri conducts the Orchestra Divino Sospiro.

Early Music Today
The 2011 singers rise to the challenge with bravura performances. Pamela Lucciarini (in the Caffarelli part) is especially thrilling in Act 1's spectacular finale, 'Contro il destin'; and tenor Michael Spyres copes admirably with the title role's extraordinary range, which stretches from bass to falsetto.
