Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fabio Bonizzoni has come up with another immaginative and enticing programme for his latest Glossa release, creating an Italian "pastiche" drama with music by André Campra and with the starring presence of soprano Roberta Invernizzi. André Campra, a major figure in the world of French opera between Lully and Rameau, was clearly not very impressed by the former's discouragement of Italian musical practices inside France when he was elevated to the post of surintendant de la musique du roi. In many of Campra's French opéras-ballets and comédieslyriques written by him as the 18th century was emerging out of the 17th are to be found interpolated many dashing arias with texts in Italian (Campra's father was Read more Italian-born like Lully padre e figlio) and from some of these Fabio Bonizzoni and Angela Romagnoli have chosen and concocted Gli strali d'Amore (Love's Arrows), thereby, curiously, following in the footsteps of Campra himself - who was a dab hand at this activity himself, as demonstrated by his own Les Fragments de Mr. De Lully. Joining Bonizzoni and Invernizzi (Glossa has recently issued a "Portrait" album involving the Milanese soprano) in this delightful sequence of recitatives and da capo arias recorded in Tuscan Brunello are the impressive Cyril Auvity and Salvo Vitale, and a sprightly La Risonanza.
