This one of two Reinhard Keiser operas to be recorded, the other is Croesus. Keiser is an almost forgotten genius of the Baroque. He dominated the Hamburg Opera for over twenty years from1695 and wrote over 60 operas. Despite the fact he was known as the man who taught Handel to write opera, and as the most inventive of composers, by the time of his death in 1739 he was almost forgotten. His operas were no longer played, no students preserved his works and today only a third of his operas have survived.
Masaniello Furioso was performed in 1706 in the Hamburg Opera house. A local author wrote the libretto in German with some Italian aria texts (a quirk explained in the notes). The plot concerns a popular uprising in Naples against the Spanish rulers, some 50 years before. As is usual for Baroque Opera of the time, history is changed to avoid encouraging conflict with the authorities. In the opera, his own men assassinate Masaniello and not the authorities.
The recording is on the excellent CPO label. The opera covers two CDs of 76 and 71 minutes respectively. Given the opera is heroic, the cast is mainly male: 3 tenors, 2 basses, 1 baritone and 1 male alto. In addition, there are two female sopranos. Those names I recognise are all experienced Baroque vocalists of the highest calibre. The Fiori Musical is a period instrument ensemble under its founder Thomas Albert.
The recording of the opera is good quality. Everyone works very hard to produce a full and pleasing sound that is easy on the ear. The songs are delightful and there is always something of interest happening. Keiser was noted for his inventiveness and this version of the opera has not let him down. A small booklet is included giving a notes on the opera and about the Hamburg Opera in German, English and French.

If you buy this recording I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. This is barock opera at its best. The music is of a very high quality.

But what a pity because the voices are unpleasent to hear! German language hasn't a nice sound.
The music is interesting but lose the power with such a horrible tones. I wish may have the same cd with
a better quality recording but, when?

Worth the 2-for-1 price if you are a Telemann fan 18 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Compares well with Telemann's Damon and Handel's Almira, two other recent budget singspiels on CPO.
Libretto in German only. Timing 76'09+70'44.
