Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This release marks the world-premiere recording and rediscovery of Antonio Caldara's La Concordia de' pianeti, a musical serenade of operatic magnitude composed for the court of Austrian Emperor Karl VI, featuring the crème de la crème of the day's singers, including the legendary castrato Carestini (Franco Fagioli's part).

Unearthed and edited by Andrea Marcon, the piece offers a series of virtuosic arias, breath-taking cantilenas and ethereal duets performed by some of the finest singers of today.

Franco Fagioli and Daniel Behle, two of today's hottest vocalists, lead a distinctive cast of early music "shining stars", including soprano Veronica Cangemi in a welcome return to Deutsche Grammophon / Archiv. The dynamic La Cetra Barockorchester, one of the most coveted period ensembles active today, lends an idiomatic touch to the program.

This is a major new release under the Archiv imprint featuring a world-class cast of singers. The opera is new to the repertoire and the catalogue altogether and has been recorded both in studio conditions and live performances in Dortmund.
