Notes & Reviews:
The hmHeritage series offers a new lease on life to the major productions that have established the reputation of the harmonia mundi catalogue: operas, oratorios, extensive cycles, and large-scale projects of every kind are presented in full to ensure this precious legacy remains available. The supreme masterpiece of Venetian opera in the second third of the Seicento, La Calisto is probably one of the finest illustrations of René Jacobs's achievement in this repertory. Since its popularization in an inspired production by Herbert Wernicke, Cavalli's work has become one of the musts of Baroque opera.Notes & Reviews:
