Notes & Reviews:
Cavalli's Giasone débuted in 1649 in Vienna, and quickly became the most frequently performed of all 17th Century Italian operas. In addition to being highly acclaimed in its day, it was revived no fewer than twenty times over the following forty years throughout Italy. Almost Wagnerian in its length and scope, the work recreates the tale of Jason and the capture of the Golden Fleece. This reissue in harmonia mundi's mid-priced Heritage series features René Jacobs leading Concerto Vocale.
