All accompaniments to these arias are with piano .
When they were first written the first performance would have been given before an invited audience with the composer himself at the keyboard.
When the gramophone was “young”, the greatest singers of the day all recorded arias with piano accompaniment.
These arias have all been recorded “live” without any editing and so the listener is given something of a real performance.
(Pere Germont is sung on this recording by my husband Bryce Wilder)
