    This thread is for new and upcoming CDs, DVDs, and blu-rays. Do you know when will this be released?

    I'm not exactly sure what the following recording is. Entitled L'Olimpiade - the Opera of the Olympics, sounds like a marketing thing to attract sales but it includes 16 arias by various (mainly Baroque) composers as "world premiere recordings". I think it's an aria album (2 CDs) but based on a common libretto with arias by all the following composers. So it is a pasticcio but by whom? I don't know.

    Libretto by Pietro Metastasio (1698-1782). Arias by Leo, Hasse, Galuppi, Sarti, Myslivecek, Paisiello, Pérez, Vivaldi, Gassmann, Caldara, Traetta, Jommelli, Cherubini, Pergolesi, Piccinni, Jommelli, Cimarosa, including 16 arias in world premiere recording.

    From what I've read, it's a sort of a combined pasticcio and recital disc. They've recorded all 32 arias from L'Olimpiade, but they've chosen settings by 16 different composers. So in a way you have the full opera (without recitatives, so it makes no dramatic sense, and so the pasticcio designation is somewhat dubious), with the arias written by 16 different composers.

    I'll think you're right, Aksel. What the hell, I'll get it anyway at some stage!

    I'm glad I didn't go to that performance. Heard a radio broadcast last year and thought it was alright.

    I've just listened to L'Olimpiade's pasticcio a few days ago. The Metastasio libretto, about some love stories of two couples that got settled in Olympia, was set in music many times (the first one in 1733, by Caldara). The idea was to use two castrati for the male lovers, two sopranos for the female lovers, a tenor in the role of King Cleisthenes, and the tutor Amyntas is usually a trouser role.

    You can easily find also versions by Vivaldi, Cimarosa or Galuppi.

    So, yes, the idea was to record a pasticcio with the arias in the versions of different composers, and without recitatives. The result is, as could be expected, rather uneven. Personally I found the most interesting and well performed pieces Vivaldi's "Mentre dormi" (Licida, sung by Franziska Gottwald) and Piccinni's "Caro, son tua cosě" (Aristea, sung by Ruth Rosique).

    Nice, but only nice.

    Not sure why anyone would buy this version when we have an excellent version already in Naive catalog?

    The recitavo and unfortuantely choral sections have all been removed.....also the full version has better overall singers and orchestra conducted by Alessandrini, just listened to this again a couple weeks ago very nice. The edited new version does fit on 2 CD making it cheaper, guess this is just a London Olympics marketing creation.....



    Looking more closely looks like there are a handful of aria changes for new version, but mostly duplicates
    arias on older (and better) Naive version

    But one thing is Vivaldi's L'Olimpiade, and another the pasticcio with arias coming from L'Olimpiade of different composers, including Vivaldi.

    A Telemann opera. There are not many Telemann operas available, so this should be a welcoming addition.
