Description: This program is built around arias and cantatas dealing with Fortune (Erlebach's separately published airas are the only remaining vestiges of his operas which were destroyed in a castle fire); Telemann's Italian cantata is one of those things plundered by the Soviets in World War 2 and only returned in 1999. Why neither of his works has a TWV number is not clear. Almost all of Ulich's work (he was Kapellmeister at Zerbst from 1708-42) was destroyed in the war but this cantata is one of a few which survived in copies elsewhere and which were only recently rediscovered. German texts. Ina Siedlaczek (soprano), Hamburger Ratsmusik.
