Description: Pergolesi's second opera seria, Il prigionier was premiered in 1733 and the famous intermezzo La serva padrona was also first given, performed by different singers, between the three acts. This same program was on a Bongiovanni CD release in early 1998 which we failed to offer for some reason. This new recording comes from 2009, uses period instruments and a new critical edition of the score. 2 DVDs. Accademia Barocca de I Virtuosi Italiani; Corrado Rovaris. 16:9 widescreen.
