L'OLYMPIADE - The Opera (Libretto by Pietro Metastasio 1698-1782. Music by Vivaldi, Cimarosa, Pergolesi, Leo, Hasse, Cherubini, Galuppi, Sarti, Myslivecek, Perez, Gassman, Caldara, Traetta, Jommelli, Piccinni) In the 18th century, 1,300 years after the last Olympic Games in ancient times, the Olympic theme was highly fashionable. Many composers based operas on the libretto to 'L'Olimpiade' by Metastasio. This recording has been structured to contain all of Metastasio’s original arias; it is a pasticcio in the sense that the music is by 16 different composers amongst the many that set the libretto between 1733 and the end of the century.
