Pimpinone & Ino

Georg Philipp Telemann ( 1681 - 1767)

Inspired by the Italian comic intermezzi, Pimpinone is about social class differences and humanity as the narcissistic Pimpinone is stung by the beauty and barbs of his charming chambermaid, Vespetta. The cantata Ino is  drawn from Ovid’s Metamorphoses
