Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736): Adriano In Siria / Franco Fagioli; Romina Basso; Yuriy Mynenko; Dilyara Idrisova; Juan Sancho; Çigem Soyarslan; Jan Tomasz Adamus, Capella Cracoviensis

Notes & Reviews:

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, known mostly for his famous Stabat Mater, also wrote four opera seria before his early death at the age of 26. With a libretto by Metastasio, Adriano in Siria is a complicated tale of love set within a problematic political backdrop. The opera enjoyed a lavish premiere in 1734 starring the great mezzo-soprano castrati, Caffarelli. To play the same role (Farnaspe), Decca's new recording features the modern-day Caffarelli - Franco Fagioli.
