Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

During the 18th and early 19th c., Pietro Metastasio's oratorio texts were the ones most frequently employed for musical settings of the Passion, but on three occasions composers set to music texts by Pietro Bagnoli. This cpo CD release marks the world premiere recording of Ferdinando Paër's highly expressive and extraordinarily imaginative Passion (1810), set to Bagnoli's La Passione di Gesù Cristo. The Parma-born Paër numbered among the most important opera composers of his generation and in his era was one of Europe's most prominent and influential musical personalities.
