Description
Bestrewn with florid arias that blend pathos and virtuosity, Antonio Mazzoni's opera seria of 1756 uses the same libretto that Mozart later drew on for his Il re pastore. Aminta was probably commissioned from the Bolognese composer by the famed castrato Farinelli.

"Mazzoni was admired in his day for his 'fire and fancy.'… Typically, the central theme is the tug between love and duty, resolved by a model ruler (Alexander the Great)…. The shepherd-king Aminta and Elisa, and the secondary lovers, Agenore and Tamiri, face painful dilemmas; but all the characters act from honourable motives and utter noble Enlightenment sentiments…. The performance [is] lively and accomplished, with rhythmically springy playing from the period orchestra and a generally stylish cast."—Gramophone
