Album Summary

>Cavalli, Francesco : Giasone
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Francesco Cavalli was the most successful Venetian opera composer of the mid-seventeenth century. This new production is orchestrated and conducted by the internationally reputed baroque specialist Federico Maria Sardelli. It is directed by the young Frenchwoman Mariame Clément, who is currently making a name for herself with her infectious directing in German and French opera houses. The title role is sung by the promising counter-tenor Christophe Dumaux.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Francesco Cavalli (1602-76) was perhaps the most famous opera composer of his century and the leading exponent of the Venetian operatic idiom. Giasone's composition and production (1649) dates about one-third of the way into his massive output. It was among the most popular and often revived of his 30-odd operas.

International Record Review, June 2012
Dumaux offers velvety timbre through the whole range, terrific depth in the lower range and ornamentation applied with innate elegance.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2012
Though Johannsen sings stylishly, Bradic's jolie laide Medea is slow to warm up, while Dumaux's shapely countertenor is too delicate to suggest a man of action...Orchestrally it's a delight, sensually swung on a hammock of lutes and harpsichords by conductor Federico Maria Sardelli, zestful in the Act II combattimento, bone-chilling in the sharp sforzandos of Medea's incantation.
