Annette Dasch (soprano)
Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie, David Syrus
The story of the infidel Saracen princess Armida, who falls in love with the Christian knight Rinaldo, has been a frequent source of inspiration for opera composers. For her début CD on the Sony Classical label, Berlin-born soprano Annette Dasch has selected Armida arias from four different operas, plus a cantata
“Annette Dasch copes admirably with the high tessitura of "Ah! Ti sento", and there is some exciting coloratura in the Rinaldo aria and in "Se pietade avete" from Haydn's last opera for Eszterháza. David Syrus and the orchestra are first-rate: indeed, the Gluck Chaconne and the Jommelli Sinfonia are, so to speak, worth hearing in their own right.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2007
