Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Acclaimed soprano Patrice Michaels evokes the leading prima donnas of classical-period Vienna by singing pieces tailored to their talents by Mozart and fellow composers Salieri, Martin y Soler, Cimarosa, Righini, and Stephen Storace.

Hear works written for Nancy Storace (the original Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro), Caterina Cavalieri (the first Constanze in The Abduction from the Seraglio), Luisa Laschi Mombelli (the first Countess), Adriana Ferrarese (the first Fiordiligi), and Louise Villeneuve (the first Dorabella).

Portraits of these singers emerge through the radiant voice of Patrice Michaels and the period-instrument prowess of the Classical Arts Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Alltop. The program includes two never-before recorded Mozart recitatives and a rarely heard duet Mozart wrote for the 1788 Vienna production of Don Giovanni.
