Catalogue Number: 08O021
Label: New Classical Adventure
Description: Yes, yet more Italian cantatas about love-lorn shepherds and -esses, these from the musical archives of the Electress of Saxony (and sometime composer herself) Maria Antonia Walpurgis. Ferrandini was her teacher and a trained singer; his pair are much longer than Porpora's and plainly the work of someone with operatic stage singing experience. Italian-German texts. Barbara Christina Steude (soprano), Jan Katzschke (harpsichord).
