This week audiences will have an opportunity to experience rarities from the Bel Canto and baroque era as well as hear one of the supreme Wagnerian tenors. Take a look.
Klaus Florian Vogt is known as one of the supreme interpreters of “Lohengrin” and thanks to the Royal Concertgebouw, audiences will get another chance to hear his interpretation in a new CD recording. The opera also stars Camilla Nylund, Katarina Dalayman, Evgeny Nikitin and Falk Struckman. The opera is conducted by Sir Mark Elder.
A New Donizetti
For Bel Canto fans interested in discovering a new work, Dynamic will release the rarely performed “Olivo e Pasquale.” The cast includes Bruno Taddia and Filippo Morace. It also includes Federico Maria Sardelli as the conductor of the work. Dynamic is releasing a CD and a DVD for those interested in both formats.
Jose Cura is back in the recording business and this time he has opted to self-release on iTunes. The Argentine tenor is releasing a 2003 album entitled “Dvorak songs” which was previously released privately and never reached a big market.
For baroque fans looking for a rare work, this week Antonio Cesti’s “L’Orontea” will be released. The recording comes from the Frankfurt Opera and stars Paula Murrihy and Sebastian Gayer.
