Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

Described as a "thought opera", Brian Ferneyhough's Shadowtime sets Charles Bernstein's inventive and complex libretto based on the work, life and imagined death of philosopher and cultural critic Walter Benjamin: it includes a movement for a speaking pianist - Opus contra naturam, the opera's fourth scene - a guitar concerto (Scene II) and ends in an ethereal haze of voices and electronics, Stelae for Failed Time. The performers are all internationally known for their commitment to contemporary music.

Shadowtime is an opera told in seven scenes across 2 CDs and a little over 2 hours of complex and fascinating music. Described as a "thought opera", it is based on the work and life of Walter Benjamin, one of the greatest philosophers and cultural critics of the twentieth century.

The Intelligence Park, recorded in the 1990 Almeida Opera production and setting Vincent Deane's libretto of 18th-century Dublin, explores the relationship between an opera composer and the increasingly independent life of the characters he has created.

Set in 1753, (although the music is not fashioned on that of the era) the story is an old-fashioned ‘opera-seria’ on the subject of conflict between head and heart, duty and inclincation, based around a composer who falls in love with a castrato.

Opera text inside

This production is offering Händel's masterpiece about which a lot of excellent recordings have already been released, however Concerto is offering the true "original" opera version. This means that the roles played by Cesare, Tolomeo and Nireno which have been especially written at that time for the castrati who at best could perform those roles, are in fact beautifully performed by our well-known sopranists, as Angelo Manzotti who is interpreting the main character; Angelo Galeano, the youngest one, who plays the role of Tolomeo in an outstanding way and least but not last Angelo Bonazzoli, playing Nireno. Besides them we have the chance to listen to Alexandra Zabala, Cleopatra, who is well renowned among opera public as well as within the recording industry.
The Arias herein included are surely among Händel's most impressive ones and refer to the most affective themes as love, jealousy, glory and revenge.
The Voice Ensemble and Orchestra by Concento Ecclesiastico are conducted by M° Luca Franco Ferrari. The Opera in three Acts has been live recorded in Savona, Italy in 2006 under the direction of Alessandro Capaldi; patroness of that special event was Renata Scotto.
This Opera has then been remastered at 32 bit to enhance a pure and high quality sound which may be proved by the most sophisticated audio technologies.

Agostino Steffani produced most of his operatic works in Germany, for the most part in Munich (between 1681 and 1688) and in Hannover. In Hannover between 1689 and 1709, before he became a diplomat and before he began his ecclesiastical career, the composer from Castelfranco composed at least eight operas,for the city's new opera theater becoming the point of reference for musical life. Today, along with Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725), Steffani is considered one of the great creative talents of his time. He composed Alarico in 1687 in Munich.
This recording highlights for the first time one of the most important examples of baroque drama in music. Just to mention some of the most enthusiastic reviews: Opera News […] This opera is a rare treasure, Really admirable the choice to release the complete edition […] Direction and interpreters quite young and not so well-known, but of very high level both from a technical and vocal point of view, as well as for the stylistic and interpreting efforts which are surely well adjusted to the almost "impossible" baroque style by Steffani".(R. V. S. Lee) and Opera Now […] A fantastic recording, plenty of nuances with an Italian cast of voices, all of them of extraordinary high level. I really shows, once again, the superiority of the new music and vocal Italian schools above all the others; surely as far as style and interpretative mood is concerned, if not also referring to a technical point of view. We have clear examples of young artists who are very well prepared and sometimes they even reach perfection by performing various works of rare beauty […].
