Joan Sutherland (Elvira), Nicola Filacuridi (Arturo), Ernest Blanc (Riccardo Forth), Giuseppe Modesti (Giorgio), Monica Sinclair (Enrichetta), John Kentish (Sir Bruno Robertson) & David Ward (Gualtiero Valton)

Glyndebourne, 1960

JOAN SUTHERLAND starred also in the second Glyndebourne offering that year, Bellini’s I PURITANI. After the sensational LUCIA at Covent Garden in 1959, JOAN SUTHERLAND continued her way into the belcanto repertory with Elvira, which she was to record later twice commercially, but here she is at her youthful very best. Her Arturo is the Greek tenor NICOLA FILACURIDI. He made his debut in 1949 and for the next 25 years sang in most of Italy’s greatest theatres, including La Scala, as well as in Spain, France, Greece, and South America. He recorded many roles for the Italian Radio and starred in some of the RAI’s operatic films. ERNEST BLANC is Elvira’s unhappy suitor Riccardo, and GIUSEPPE MODESTI is Sir Giorgio Valton, Elvira’s benign uncle. The great Italian conductor VITTORIO GUI leads a wonderful performance. He was one of Italy’s most influential conductors, having founded Florence’s Maggio Musicale Festival in 1933 and started the Rossini renaissance at Glyndebourne in the Fifties. A must for Sutherland fans, then.

Rushton: The Shops - a comic opera (libretto by Dagny Gioulami)

Rushton: The Shops - a comic opera (libretto by Dagny Gioulami)
ID: NMCD146
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

The Opera Group's lively production of Edward Rushton's new opera, described as 'part satire on rampant consumerism, part psychological thriller.’

Edward Rushton’s new opera, The Shops is described as ‘part satire on rampant consumerism, part psychological thriller’. Its central character, Christoph Schmalhans, is an obsessive stamp collector. He manages to steal prize examples from museums with the aid of his girlfriend Francesca, who distracts attention by causing scenes. His activities eventually attract the interest of the police and psychologists. In between, there is a running commentary on the phenomenon of shopaholics, along with a song-and-dance number from members of a mutual support group.

Darren Abrahams (tenor), Anna Dennis (soprano), Phyllis Cannan (contralto), Richard Burkhard (baritone), Louise Mott (mezzo-soprano), Paul Reeves (bass)

S. SCIARRINO - Lohengrin - Azione invisibile per voce strume

S. SCIARRINO - Lohengrin - Azione invisibile per voce strume
ID: STR57006
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

Lohengrin is considered one of most remarkable of Sciarrino's works, which despite sharing a name with that other Lohengrin the only common characteristics are an inspiration from a particular medieval German fable and the fact that each is a product of a composer with a gift for highlighting emotional states through canny orchestration. Otherwise, Sciarrino's music is a logical continuation of Webern, a landscape of flinty utterances, alarming squeals and langorous sighs rendered all the more alien by Sciarrino's reliance upon unorthodox methods of sound production. Dramatically, the work continues the line of Peter Maxwell Davies's Eight Songs for a Mad King and Miss Donnithorne's Maggot, in both of which mental disorder is depicted through fragmented lines and extreme vocal techniques.

S. SCIARRINO - Luci mie traditrici - Algoritmo

S. SCIARRINO - Luci mie traditrici - Algoritmo
ID: STR33900
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

By Sciarrino’s own admission, this is the best and reference version of his well-known 2-act-opera Luci mie traditrici in a stunning performance by Ensemble Algoritmo conducted by Marco Angius.
Luci mie traditrici was presented on 19th May 1998 in the Schwetzinger Festpiele under the German title Die tödliche Blume (The Deadly Flower). The libretto by Sciarrino is based freely on "Il tradimento per l’onore", a prose tragedy published for the first time in 1659 under the name of G.A. Cicognini (Florence 1606-Venice 1649) and followed by various reprintings. The libretto centres on lovers’ basic conflicts but Luci reaches beyond the ordinary by showing how familiar impulses can spiral into the pathological and cause disaster. A timid person turns into a perfidious murderer when he loses the certainty of his relationship. Tender feelings mutate into obsession; boundless love becomes immeasurable suffering, and the dream of lovers’ paradise turns into a vision of eternal damnation.
