Album Summary

>Cavalli, Francesco : La virtù dei strali d'Amore
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

La virtù de' strali d'Amore was the first of ten operas Cavalli wrote with librettist Giovanni Faustini. Set in Cyprus, the plot involves enchanted and pastoral elements, love and its thwarting, the counter-pointing of Man and God, sorcery, revelation and ultimate resolution, all accomplished in a brilliant series of scenes. A follower of Monteverdi, Cavalli reveals the influence of the older man but also his own pronounced independence. Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante have become one of the most admired partnerships in the history of baroque music performance.

Enjoy Francesco Cavalli in Venice is certainly exciting, knowing that that city was the recipient of many of his operas. This was understood for several seasons responsible for programming the Teatro La Fenice, and always with the great help of Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante orchestra, reserved the most suitable dates for respresentar Teatro Malibran La Didone , which later appeared in Dynamic- and now offers Naxos The Virt· of 'Strali d'Amore .
