Description: This was Mayr's last opera, produced in 1823 and using a hundred-year-old Metastasio libretto. Designed to pander to a new reactionary ruler, the libretto was altered in various ways to make it a tacit condemnation of tyranny which the ruler would never notice. Mayr's gift for magnificent choral tableaus is still here, along with the melodies and orchestrational talent which you'll be familiar with by now in this CD renaissance of operas and oratorios by this once-forgotten German composer, resident in Italy. 2 CDs. No libretto. Bénédicte Taurán (soprano), Amaya Dominguez (mezzo), Piotr Friebe (tenor), Lisandro Abadie (bass), Opera Choir of Teatr Wileki Poznan, OSJ; Facundo Agudin.
