Notes & Reviews:
The first performances of Les Femmes Vengées (The Avenged Women) in 1775 restored the fortunes of Francois-André Danican Philidor, which had been wavering since the great success of Tom Jones a decade earlier. His opéra-comique, which foreshadows the plot of Mozart's Così fan tutte (Mozart had been in Paris during the first performances of Philidor's work), offers delicious opportunities for mock-indignation and repartee in its arias and ensembles. This recording presents the complete music. Opera Lafayette and Ryan Brown's recording of Philidor's Sancho Pança [8.660274] was hailed as a 'witty, authentic interpretation' by the American Record Guide.Notes & Reviews:
