Catalogue Number: 04Q040
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: The Ariettes are the eight songs for single voice from the dozen Soirées musicales to texts by Metastasio and Count Carlo Pepoli. Published in 1835 in two versions, both authorized by Rossini, they are hardly ever recorded complete and possibly never before in this second version arranged for guitar. Carulli's dozen take themes from Rossini's most famous operas and set Metastasian texts to them; these were published in 1826. Italian texts. Silvia Vajente (soprano), Adriano Sebastiani (guitar).
