About

''incoronazione di Dario, composed in 1717, is the Vivaldi Edition's 16th opera and its 53rd release. It marks the halfway point in a bold enterprise launched by Naive in 2000: the recording of the 450 works in Vivaldi's personal library. In the footsteps of the Mozart and Bach revivals 30 years ago, this is the most ambitious recording project of the century.

L’incoronazione di Dario must be considered one of Vivaldi’s most successful operas. Immediately opening with exceptional arias, it moves at a rapid pace, holding the listener’s attention throughout. Recitatives are interspersed with arioso interludes and there are no less than eight 'big' numbers sure to join the ranks of 'Vivaldi’s best opera arias'.

The excellent cast acts out this drama with conviction: Anders Dahlin’s sings Dario, with impeccable intonation and stunning coloratura passages; Sara Mingardo, as Statira, brings great depth and beauty, most especially in her Act 2 solo Cantata accompanied only by viola da gamba. Delphine Galou sings with an impressive natural ability and passion and two of her arias in particular are sure to remain benchmarks: 'D’un bel viso' and 'Ferri, ceppi, sangue, morte'; Roberta Mameli, Riccardo Novaro, Sophia Soloviy and Lucia Cirillo are all excellent and each of them has at least one star aria.

Ottavio Dantone’s conducting is marked by his ability to bring out the many subtleties in this music and by his profound understanding of recitativos which he is able to bring fully to life as theatre.
