MAYR, J.S.: Arianna a Nasso [Cantata] (Horak, T.M. Allen, Simon Mayr Choir, Ingolstadt Georgian Chamber Orchestra, Hauk)

The Bavarian-born composer Simon Mayr spent his compositional life in Italy, spreading the influence of Viennese classicism whilst himself being influenced by prevailing Italian models. His cantata Arianna in Nasso (Ariadne on Naxos) was written for the leading soprano Isabella Colbran, who was later to marry Rossini. Her virtuosity inspired Mayr, and his cantata is a stirring example of vivid nature writing, refined pathos, and joyous celebration. Franz Hauk and the Simon Mayr Chorus and Ensemble are the world’s leading Mayr exponents and their recordings have received the highest critical acclaim.
