Opera Obliqua Stand de Moutier

The current renaissance in conjunction with the works of Giovanni Simone Mayr (or Simon Mayr) is not astonishing, but justifi ed.

With Demetrio, he left to posterity a masterpiece that belongs on the great stages of the world. Mayr›s late work is a mixture of romantic anticipation, stylistic reminiscences of Mozart and Haydn, bel canto elements and a touch of Rossini, all worked into an entirely unique form. Of particular note is Mayr›s melodic inventiveness.

With this CD, OehmsClassics presents a live recording of Demetrio made at the Moutier Festival (Switzerland) in June 2011.
