David's Review Corner, June 2014

Described on the disc sleeve as a ‘cantata’, Donizetti did refer to Aristea as an ‘opera’, a title more befitting a score that opens with a typically operatic overture. [Aristea] calls for a cast of six singers, the two American-born sopranos, Andrea Lauren Brown and Sara Hershkowitz…are ideally cast, their extended love duet early in the score demonstrating Brown’s admirable vocal agility. The much experienced tenor, Cornel Frey, is well cast as Aristea’s very ageing father, Licisco, as he looks for his daughter, and I was impressed by the baritone, Andreas Burkhart. Students and members of the Bavarian State Opera form the enthusiastic chorus, and the Simon Mayr Ensemble is an admirable orchestra under the direction of Franz Hauk. Reliable sound quality, and I enthusiastically commend this world premiere recording. © 2014 David’s Review Corner
