Domenico Cimarosa was one of the last great exponents of the ‘Neapolitan
School’ and one of the most famous and successful composers before the
arrival of Rossini on the European opera scene. His works were produced
and re-staged at innumerable performances in opera houses all over
Europe. This programme represents the extraordinary range of Cimarosa’s
career, from Le trame deluse (The Foiled Schemes) and La villana
riconosciuta (The Country Girl Revealed), which were among his greatest
hits, to overtures from cantatas such as Atene edificata (The Founding of
Athens) and the ‘dramatic composition’ for Cardinal de Bernis, written on
the occasion of the birth of the Dauphin, the firstborn son of Louis XVI.

The first volume (8.570508) in this popular series
appeared in 2007, and was immediately welcomed as
“a golden opportunity to make the acquaintance of some
of the most spirited music of the late 18th century” by
MusicWeb International. Volume 2 (8.570279) was
admired by Fanfare for “rewarding interpretations that
summon respect for the composer as well as admiration
for the performers.” Volume 3 (8.572734), also conducted
by Patrick Gallois, was a WQXR New York ‘Album of
the Week’ in September 2013.
