Description: One of the most notable innovations of the post-Lully period on French opera stages was the introduction into French-language works of Italian arias. Campra probably did more to poplarize this than any other composer and Bonizzoni here innovates a little himself by going back to the 18th century and creating a pastiche one-act opera using arias from ten of Campra's operas, writing his own recitatives to connect the action and using three sonata movements by Clérambault as instrumental interludes. Italian-English texts. Roberta Invernizzi (soprano), Cyril Auvity (countertenor), Salvo Vitale (bass), La Risonanza; Fabio Bonizzoni (harpsichord).
