On the evening of May 10, 2015 Sunhae Im sang excerpts from Agostino Steffani's opera " Le rivali concordi " ('The reconciled lovers') together with the soloists Miriam Feuersinger (soprano), David Hansen (alto) and Knut Schoch (tenor) and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra under the direction of Torsten Johann at Mozart Hall in Stuttgart. Already Cecilia Bartoli has recorded parts of the opera three years ago on the spectacular concept album "Mission". An Italian opera with French overtones from the pen of a composer who influenced even Handel and Bach.
