New opera recording released: Haydn’s L’isola disabitata (Deserted Island)

Sunhae Im’s new opera CD was released on August 6, 2021!  She joined recording of Joseph Haydn’s opera “L’isola disabitata (Deserted Island)” in Berlin in the fall of 2020 during the difficult Pandemic. 

“The seasoned players of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, led by Bernhard Forck, play this lavish score with fervour and swing, while Anett Fritsch (Costanza), Sunhae Im (Silvia), Krystian Adam (Gernando) and André Morsch (Enrico) offer an equally virtuosic vocal delivery…  Officially called an azione teatrale, L’isola is a serious opera about love, loss and misunderstanding with a happy ending, set on an exotic deserted island. Special about this opera is that Haydn chose orchestral accompaniment for the entire work, with colourful and dramatic accompagnato recitatives.”
