Il Divino Sassone
lautten compagney | Wolfgang Katschner
American diva Vivica Genaux and the lautten compagney under the direction of Wolfgang Katschner are experts in the virtuoso Hasse style, which thrives on nuances, embellishments and variations. Genaux has made an intensive study of Farinell’s vocal art, to which the young Hasse owed his first successes, and which then enabled the German-Italian composer to tailor some of his most important operas to suit his performers’ vocal cords. For Bayreuth Baroque, Genaux and Katschner have compiled a representative cross-section of Hasse’s vocal work.
