SIMON MAYR (1763-1845): Il sagrifizio di Jefte.
Catalogue Number: 04O033
Description: The Mayr factory output rate is rather astonishing, isn't it? This is another oratorio-cum-opera seria, much earlier than the last several (1795) and gives the appearance of allowing the composer both to deliver a commission and experiment with his operatic techniques at the same time. 2 CDs. Texts and translations available on-line. Hrachuhí Bassénz (soprano), Stefanie Irányi (mezzo), Robert Sellier (tenor), Jochen Kupfer (bass), Simon Mayr Chorus and Ensemble; Franz Hauk.
