Arianna a Naxos; Cantata for Voice and Piano Hob.XXVIb:2 by : Joseph Haydn : Marianne Helms
The famous ancient legend of Princess Ariadne; who is forsaken by her beloved Theseus; is a favorite subject in the history of opera. In his Italian solo cantata “Arianna a Naxos”; probably written in late 1789; Joseph Haydn succeeded in crafting a captivating psychological drama of one of the most deeply hurt women in Greek mythology. In two recitatives and two arias the princess must endure everything from trepidation to wrath; from grief to desperate love in a musically emphatic manner. Our Urtext edition will provide the soprano performing it with the utmost support throughout. A preface with interesting details about the cantata's genesis and valuable suggestions for the performance of the recitatives rounds off this carefully prepared edition.
