Description: A student of Albrechtsberger and Paisiello, Weigl also helped prepare both Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni for performance and became vice-Kapellmeister at the Vienna Court Theatre. He was equally adept at lighter, Italian pieces in fresh and charming bel-canto style and in the more weighty German Singspiel genre and both of these genres are represented here in song and in aria. Texts and translations available on-line. Donald George (tenor), Lucy Mauro (fortepiano).
