Notes & Reviews:
This world premiere recording of Benedetto Marcello's "Arianna" features great singing, excellent recorded sound, and most importantly, an exceptionally fine work that has waited far too long to see the light of day. "Arianna" is described as "a play in music for five voices", but can also be loosely defined as an opera. It was written when Marcello was at the height of his fame. This great set will be welcomed by any fan of Baroque opera.
