The last opera written by Alessandro Stradella, La Doriclea, recorded in its original an complete version (four hours).. This opera was thought lost: in the booklet there is a brief history of the original manuscript, rediscovered by Estévan Velardi. La Doriclea distinguishes itself from the contemporary compositions for the extraordinary beauty of its music inventions as well as for the modernity of its formal conception, which can number it among the masterworks of the Seventeenth Century. A box with 4 CD set and a booklet of 300 pages introduce the listeners to the fantastic world of one of the most important composers of The Baroque era, killed in Genoa in 1652 by some hired assassins.
