Description

ARTS follows its exploration of Paisiello's works offering a stunning
performance of the Intermezzo La Serva Padrona based on the same libretto of
Pergolesi's Masterpiece. The same Soloists of the much appreciated production
of Pergolesi's opera (available on ARTS 47119-2 Authentic Series) appear now
on this single CD recorded in coproduction with the Bavarian Radio utilizing one
of the leading orchestras in Munich. Hans Ludwig Hirsch conducts from the
fortepiano a spirited account of a rarely performed opera. Jeanne Marie Bima is
also the protagonist of another Paisiello's opera, Nina o sia la pazza per amore
available on ARTS 47166-2 (2CDs).
This is the only complete intermezzo available at budget price. Booklet contains
textes in four languages and the complete italian libretto.

Reviews:

Orpheus (17.06.2004)


"As already the "Nina" so is also this "Serva" of surprising quality. Almost every track is a hit, especially the atmosphere of Figaro seems to be magic ... performed by an delighting cast. Hans Ludwig Hirsch really loves the music of the Settecento. This can be heard with every beat"

Scherzo (17.06.2004)


"The best recording of this work available"

Fono Forum (17.06.2004)


"An impressing, ingeniously pointed Uberto and a charming Serpina with a flirtatious piano"

Wochenzeitung für Politik und Kultur (17.06.2004)


Fono Forum (D) (17.06.2004)


"Ein markanter, sorgfältig pointierender Uberto und eine charmante Serpina mit kokett eingesetztem Piano"

Orpheus (17.06.2004)


"Dieser umstrittene Komponist hat es in sich. Bei liebevoller Interpretation schimmert etwas auf, das ihn unmittelbar in Mozarts und Salieris Nähe rücken läßt. Denn wie auch schon "Nina", so ist auch die "Serva" von überraschender Qualität. Wie bei Pergolesi für nur zwei Stimmen, Sopran und Baß, konzipiert, gehört dies 1781 entstandene Werk zu den inspiriertesten Kompositionen des Maestro, die bisher auf Tonträgern erschienen sind. Wer das Trio Salomaa/Bima/Hirsch abendfüllend erleben möchte, der kaufe getrost beide CDs, was den Liebhaber, nebenbei bemerkt, finanziell gewiß nicht ruinieren wird."

Scherzo (17.06.2004)


"La mejor grabación de las hasta el momento publicadas"
