The ensemble L'armonia del Belcanto- currently made up of the soprano Heidemarie Rottig and the concert organist Angela Metzger- specializes in the little-known sacred settings of bel canto. The ensemble has been very successful over the past several years and has earned a reputation as a specialist for dramatic musical settings and romantic music from the tradition of bel canto, thereby making it possible to give their audience an understanding of this style of singing. A distinguishing feature of the ensemble is the careful research and compilation of their programs. This release, which includes numerous world premiere recordings, features the duo performing works from the American-Italian opera scene of the 19th century including works by Barili, Giannetti, and Nicolao.
