Cavalli’s Artemisia Revival


A beautiful revival of Cavalli’s Artemisia (1657) at Montpellier festival can be heard on Radio France (not sure for how long, so get cracking).

Later: Actually now that I look, it’s going to be on for 30 days, so plenty of time to enjoy it: “cette émission est disponible en écoute à la carte pendant 30 jours après sa diffusion à l’antenne” (which was on 24th of July, it seems). For anyone interested in discovering some great early opera, Cavalli is a great place to start (La Calisto, for example, René Jacobs’ version is the best).
