Rating Review
Customer Rating The reduction of the orchestral score of this musical diamond is magnificent.
The continuo part is most accessible, and always indicates which of the nine continuo instruments are required at any given time (eg lute, harpsichord,v d gamba etc). It also serves as a fantastic "piano line" for rehearsals.
The vocal lines are scored in such a way that soloists (paticularly 'orfeo') often have the choice between sustained phrases that they can either sing straight, or interpret as they wish, OR already scored florid, coloratura parts, which are very much in keeping with the melisma of the time.
In my opinion, this is the best Opera ever written, and this score takes nothing away from its beauty.

Customer Rating This is an outstanding score. I was able to read through it very easily. The translation at the bottom of each page accurately accompanies the Italian text and music - saved me a lot of time!
