Vivaldi: Dorilla In Tempe
I BAROCCHISTI BASSO MALFI DE LISO CIRILLO PRINA SENN FASOLIS
Launched in 2000 and now 54 albums later, the ground-breaking Vivaldi Edition returns with the sumptuous opera, Dorilla in Tempe, conducted by Diego Fasolis. A perfect example of the creativity and diversity of Antonio Vivaldi's musicmaking, the opera Dorilla in Tempe is an enchanting listen. From the pastoral and fairytale-like atmosphere of the story, to the prominent role of the choir (which sings the wellknown 'Spring') and the insertion of several spectacular arias by fellow composers (thereby creating a ‘pasticcio' opera, as was common at the time): everything combines to draw the listener in to the emotional twists and turns of Princess Dorilla in her valley of Tempe, Greece. As always in the Vivaldi Edition, the recording brings together a high-level vocal cast, including Romina Basso, Sonia Prina, Christian Senn, and Serena Malfi - this time under the baton of maestro Diego Fasolis, who has previously worked with Cecilia Bartoli on several recordings.
