Cappella Sagittariana, Dresden
Eschewing ensemble pieces and with sparing use of the chorus, the work offers a string of sparkling arias, even if there is still little use of obbligato wind instruments. The most impressive feature of the arias is their wonderfully expansive vocal cantilenas, which largely ignore the nominal framework of a four- or eight-bar structure. We here encounter the aria as an individual work of art in Hasse’s Gesamtkunstwerk. More than in many other operas by Hasse, skilled singers and orchestra are needed in order to display the work’s full beauty, particularly in deploying additional diminutions and ornaments to make the da capo, the final repeat of the opening section, the true climax of each aria.
