F. J. Haydn: Lieder; Cantata Arianna a Naxos; Duets

$17.99 (2CD)

World Première Recording

Haydn’s German Lieder were composed between 1781 and 1784, and are unusual in the importance they ascribe to the accompaniments, played on the new “fortepiano”, and instrument for which both Haydn and his friend Mozart increasingly composed after the 1770s. Here soprano Andrea Folan and fortepianists Tom Beghin and Chi-Chen Wu provide performances that take in to account Haydn’s own performance practices, including the questions of vocal ornamentation that bring these scores fully to life.
