Warner Classics has made Austrian conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt's Haydn Armida available again with the original cover art. This is one of the very few recordings opera star Cecilia Bartoli made for Warner Classics' former labels Teldec & Erato, apart from three Mozart operas (Cosi fan tutte and Le nozze di Figaro with Daniel Barenboim and the rare Lucio Silla with Harnoncourt). The cast also features the great tenor Christoph Pregardien and famous French soprano Patricia Petibon. "He (Nikolaus Harnoncourt) wanted to explore why composers made their music sound as it did, to understand what their intentions were, to react to the instruments they used and to their sonorities, and to see how they could best be created anew in our time. He did not believe in 'authenticity' as such, and never used the word. Instead he questioned 'tradition' as laziness (as) Mahler had before him." - Sir Nicholas Kenyon, Gramophone.
