Reference: GCD 923519
Description: Premiered in Venice in 1640, to a richly poetic libretto by the poet Busenello, this opera is dependent on the Florentine tradition of recitar cantando but abounds in ensembles and the variety of strophic forms is as great as the expressiveness of the recitative. 2 CDs. Italian libretto. Ensemble Elyma; Gabriel Garrido.
