PERGOLESI, G.B.: Frate `nnamorato (Lo) [Opera] (Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini, 2011) (NTSC) 101652
PERGOLESI, G.B.: Frate 'nnamorato (Lo) (Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini, 2011) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) 108066

…this production, like others in the series encompassing Pergolesi’s six operas and two extant intermezzos, sports a fine Italian period-instrument orchestra. Here it’s Europa Galante—fifteen musicians, led by violinist Fabio Biondi, who do their scintillating best for Pergolesi’s early score.

…mezzo Elena Belfiore sings incisively as Ascanio, and soprano Patrizia Biccirè uses a plush voice with agility as Nena. © 2013 Opera News Read complete review
