About

The 70 operas by Ferdinando Bertoni (1725-1813) are almost all forgotten, except for his Orfeo. The opera is based on the same libretto as Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, and was also composed for the same castrato, Gaetano Guadagni. Unlike Gluck, however, Bertoni created a true-opera scenario, which celebrates its rediscovery here in this recording with Vivica Genaux.

“….a recommendation to explorers of the 18th-century operatic hinterland, for the work itself and for the superb performance of Vivica Genaux” - Gramophone

Cast:
- Orfeo: Vivica Genaux (mezzo-soprano)
