A Delightful Rare Find
10/26/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My primary reason for purchasing this CD was so I could hear the opera, "La Cantarina"--and it did not dissapoint. The vocal writing is very beautiful, and all four singers bring a nice amount of expressiveness and tone. The orchestra provides pleasant accompaniment, although it can become rather plodding in the bass. The two-act opera is all too short, but the CD also includes two other interesting works: Haydn's symphony No. 1, and the Haydn/Hofmann flute concerto. Both pieces are good, and solo flautist Emily Newbold brings a light and lively sound to the concerto. An excellent buy for Haydn & classical period opera fans."
