This live recording of Georg Philipp Telemann's "Flavius 'Bertaridus" is a rarity: The performance at the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music has been hailed by critics and frenetic. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung described this world premiere recording under the direction of Alessandro di Marchi - one of the leading specialists in historical performance practice. As "a milestone in German music history," "Not a single scene, no aria want to miss it," the Neue Zürcher Zeitung writes to di Marchis spectacular interpretation with orchestra and chorus of the Academia Montis Regalis. The opera tells a story of great relevance: It is about the downfall of a tyrant and is reminiscent of modern dictators like Ghadaffi. The opera is entirely filled with wonderful singers like Maite Beaumont, Ann-Beth Solvang and Nina Bernstein.
