TESTORIDE ARGONAUTA (1780) by Joao de Sousa Carvalho (Nuova Era 6928/29, two CDs with Italian text). Written for the court of Portugal, which was in the grip of an Italian opera craze that engulfed 18th-century Europe, this has a typical opera seria plot based on Greek mythology with extreme situations and graceful, expressive arias. The music may remind you of Mozart, but the composer's stature is actually closer to Cimarosa or Paisiello.”

Joseph McLellan, THE WASHINGTON POST, 23 June, 1991

“René Clemencic is a composer, conductor, virtuoso flautist and clavichordist, harpsichordist and organist, director and founder of a world-famous ensemble for early music (the Clemencic Consort), musicologist and writer, philosopher, as well as a collector of emblematic books and sculptures.

Ever since the late 1950s he has appeared in solo concerts as recorder virtuoso, and with his ensemble, the Clemencic Consort, playing music ranging from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance to the Baroque and Avantgarde, travelling to concert venues all over Europe, the African countries, North and South America, Asia, and Australia. Clemencic appears in more than 100 record and CD productions, both as soloist and conductor of his own ensemble, as well as with other orchestras. Many of these recordings were awarded international prizes, such as Edison, Grand Prix du Disque, Diapason d'Or, Prix Cécilia, etc. René Clemencic has been honored with many national and international awards.”
