Album Summary

>Cavalli, Francesco : Xerse, opera
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Xerse" was written using the libretto that Handel also used, 84 years later. The text adopted here is that of its premiere in Venice in 1654. "[Xerse] is an undoubted success: a hitherto unheard opera of striking quality, playing and singing that are extremely musicianly and musical (by no means always synonymous!); and an impeccably clean recording."

Note: This title is rare and is considered a collector’s item. It is priced according to its common market value. If the record label that it is on goes on sale, it will also be reduced in price.
