Description
The earliest operas often drew their material from the Orpheus legend; as the present programme suggests, it was considered a suitable theme for the chamber cantata as well. All of these solo pieces follow the standard recitative-and-aria format. The renowned Baroque specialist Sunhae Im is a leggiero soprano, but she ‘sings into’ the midrange with a full tone and the occasional brief melismas are smooth and even.
