Notes and Editorial Reviews
Four pieces here are recorded for the first time and reveal a talent firmly rooted in the style of her contemporaries Mozart and Haydn but imbued with a refreshingly feminine vivacity. The cantata "Il primo amore" and aria "Berenice, ah che fai?" are brought to life by the gloriously sweet-toned soprano Nuria Rial, while the formidable Nicoleta Paraschivescu directs the lithe players of La Floridiana from the keyboard in the spritely Overture in C and Concerto for harpsichord in E major.
