This review is from: Pasquale Anfossi: La Finta Giardiniera (Audio CD)
Pasquale Anfossi (1727-1797) is a name I had never heard of prior to the release of this recording but it's really hard not to enjoy this piece presented as it is here in such a lively performance with such excellent singers. The live recording has been nicely cleaned up. Applauses have been edited out while managing to retrain a sense of occasion and fun. Sound is transparent and well balanced. It comes with a substantial booklet and full translations. It makes a fascinating comparison with Mozart's own opera of the same name for which it shares the libretto. It's comic and colourful and none the worse for it. If you like classical operas of this period (premiered during the Rome carnival season of 1773/1774 the booklet tells us) you should certainly enjoy this. Deutsche Harmonia Mundi should certainly be applauded for bringing these unknown works into public awareness through recordings like this.

Disc 1: 75'39 Disc 2: 66'52 Disc 3: 27'39

Highly Recommended.
