3.0 out of 5 stars Hasse abbandonato 3 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the third complete opera by Hasse that has been recorded to date, after Piramo e Tisbe and the spectacular Cleofide. Well, it is not really complete cause some da capos have been mutilated: I hate when this happens. The opera was recorded live in Munich so the sound is bad (you can hear coughes, applauses, stage noise etc.). The singers are not bad, but they seem forced to move around the stage, and this strongly affects to singing. The result is mediocre: you can hear them breathing, shouting etc. The mezzo Holzhauser (Dido), the countertenor Barna-Sabadus (Iarba) and the baritone Burkhart (Osmida) have interesting voices, although unfortunately they are also affected by the aforementioned problems, so it is difficult to judge. The rest of the cast is from bad to average... The sound of the orchestra is very good, and Michael Hofstetter's conducting is exemplary. The music of Hasse is lovely, but it is really difficult to enjoy the arias with all the noise, the irregular singing etc. It is very sad because the opera is full of wonderful moments. I found the aria "Ah non lasciarmi" in the second act really moving, one of the best arias I have listened by Hasse, and probably one of the best arias from the XVIII century. Seriously, the music is so good that I felt continuosly frustrated when listening to the recording. Let's hope more operas by Hasse are recorded in future with a better cast and sound quality, because his wonderful music really deserves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live Hasse from Munich 4 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have long enjoyed Hasse's music. I love his opera Cleofide and many of his arias are now turning up on CDs by the likes of Simone Kermes. This is a live recording with the accompanying bangs and general stage noise, and the audience clap after all the good numbers (and there are a lot). Still it didn't get in the way for me, this is a fine opera by a good composer in a really good performance. At Naxos prices this is one for the curious music lover.

3.0 out of 5 stars music is great 12 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
but the singers are variable. Ferri-Benedetti and Barna-Sabadus the countertenors are very fine indeed, but the women are not up to it. The orchestra is good but the recording is so very live that every footfall resonates, and the stage scenery sounds to be collapsing onto the stage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Valer Barna Sabadus in a complete opera 11 Mar 2014
By Harry Sillen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was purchased on the strength of Mr. Sabadus' first solo disc where he sings music from Johann Hasse. His participation in this project lifts the whole immensely. The rest of the cast is not always up top the same standard, but the orchestral playing is very commendable. Wish that the music as a whole was of a higher standard. After about an hour or so, it all becomes more or less the same and the singers cannot make more of it than is there. Be that as it may, it is nice to have a complete opera by this composer who was such a thorn in Handel's eye at times. But Mr. Handel does not have to fear much: his music is of an altogether higher level, and his imagination, especially in the accompaniments, is astounding. So, a nice addition to our knowledge of the by-ways of baroque opera.
