By Accademia Dell'arcadia and Roberto Balconi. By Egidio Romualdo Duni. Country of Origin: Germany. Classical. CD (1 disc). Published by Naxos (NX.BRI95422).

Les deux chasseurs et la laitiere, a one-act opera by Egidio Romualdo Duno (1708-1775), was premiered in Paris by the company of Theatre de Comediens Italiens, in July 1763. This work, staged then many times at the Opera Comique, was soon published and its popularity among European theatres reached its peak between the 1780s and the beginning of the 19th century. The opera is written in the Galant Style: small size, fast-paced action, sharp sense of humour, amusing spoken dialogues and, above all, very light and cleverly written music, made this piece one of the most popular operas not only in Paris of the time. The libretto is based on two fables by De La Fontaine, ingeniously combining two plots involving two hunters and a milk jug. This is a vibrant performance on period instruments by the Accademia dell'Arcadia from the Polish Poznan, featuring three excellent young Polish vocal soloists. Conductor is Early music specialist Roberto Balconi, who has already issued successful recordings on Brilliant Classics.
