A fascinating journey to rediscover the music of a composer who was lauded in his day yet forgotten soon after, The Dresden Manuscripts chronicles David Wilson’s thirty-year quest to locate, reconstruct, and perform the music of Johann Adolf Hasse, a composer who, along with his equally famous wife, mezzo-soprano Faustina Bordoni, had close personal associations with Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn, and Gluck.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dr. Wilson takes us on an emotional and fascinating journey into the life of this genius and shows how even one person’s passion can make a difference in bringing back the lost treasures of the past.”

    Vivica Genaux, world-acclaimed mezzo soprano

  • “Stefan Rudnicki’s able and professional performance helps to keep the listener engaged. His deep and craggy yet flexible and expressive voice is naturally appealing, and his skill is evident in excellent pacing, generally careful attention to nuances of the text, and an ability to convey feelings by voice alone. The narration is punctuated or occasionally backed by brief musical quotes, a welcome audio-only enhancement.”
