Notes and Editorial Reviews

With I Viaggi di Faustina GLOSSA is launching a new collection focusing on famous Italian singers from the 17th and 18th centuries, whose travels bear witness to the intense level of artistic activity then taking place in the major cities of Europe. Faustina Bordoni, the brilliant diva with whom we begin this series pursued her career mainly in Naples (the principal focus of this CD) and Venice, but also in cities such as Bologna, Parma, Dresden and London. These were cities hosting – with great success – operas by Johann Adolph Hasse (Bordoni’s husband), Nicola Popora, Leonardo Vinci, Francesco Mancini and Domenico Sarro; most of these composers are represented on this first selection of wonderful arias. The artist chosen to reincarnate Read more Faustina Bordoni has been the singer considered by many to be the leading soprano in Baroque music today: Roberta Invernizzi. In a repertory fitting her like a glove, Invernizzi displays all her renowned sensitivity and virtuosity along with a sense of mutual musical understanding – which is second bar none – with Antonio Florio and I Turchini. This is Roberta Invernizzi’s second release on the label as the main protagonist, the first being her outstanding and very highly-appreciated album of Vivaldi arias (GCD922901). Devised by the scholar Dinko Fabris and the conductor Antonio Florio, with further musicological advice coming from Juan José Carreras and Giulia Veneziano, this new collection also gives a central importance to the texts and to the iconography which provide each recording with their context; in this way endeavouring to create the most complete and stimulating vision possible of the conditions which were surrounding these inimitable artists.
