Monteverdi, L'Orfeo, Highlights,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monteverdi : L'Orfeo [Highlights] - Apex (MP3 Download)
This is by far the best version of Monteverdi's lovely opera. Presenting it in highlights rather than having the complete version is not a bad idea. The only problem is that a few bits that need to be together have been separated. Orfeo's love declaration to Euridice needs to be followed by her reply, for instance. I would have liked at least the whole of Act I, maybe with a shorter version of the very long introduction, but otherwise complete.
If I had the choice to get the complete version for my kindle I would definitely get it.
