Notes & Reviews:
Tito Manlio is one of the four music drams that Vivaldi had represented in the Mantua during the time he was in the employ of Philipp von Hessen-Darmstadt, the governor plenipotentiary ruling on behalf of the Habsberg crown. This new CPO recordings features the Modo Antiquo baroque orchestra, one of the top ensembles in the international panorama of early music.
Sardelli captures all of the precocious orchestral effects in Vivaldi's score. Two of Manlio's arias are particularly outstanding: 'Sonno, se pur sei sonno' is a marvellously dark opening to Act 3, with pulsing, creepy string chords... 'Ti lascerei gl'affetti miei' is a sublime moment of minor key melancholy that commences with only a pair of oboes and bassoon before evolving into a deeply moving lament of considerable beauty and sonority that is eloquently shaped by Sardelli.
