CD Reviews

A FANTASTIC FIND
Alfredo R. Villanueva | New York, NY United States | 03/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT OTHER OPERAS ONE-OPERA COMPOSERS HAVE WRITTEN? THERE ARE QUITE A FEW AMAZING SURPRISES, AND THIS OPERA IS ONE OF THEM. I HAVE ALWAYS ADMIRED YASUKO HAYASHI, WHO GRACES SEVERAL OF MY FAVORITE LIVE RECORDINGS, SUCH AS "LA JUIVE," WHICH ALSO FEATURES RICHARD TUCKER, AND "BIANCA E FERNANDO". SHE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT HERE. ALESSANDRO CASSIS, CARLO DE BORTOLI AND OTTAVIO GARAVENTA ROUND OUT THE EXCELLENT CAST. GAVAZZENI, WITHOUT WHOM SO MANY OPERAS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD A SECOND HEARING, CONDUCTS THIS BEAUTIFUL AND ENERGETIC PERFORMANCE FROM 1979. GREAT SOUND, AND THE MUSIC IS SUPERB. A JOY TO HEAR! A COMMENT: THOUGH PONCHIELLI IS USUALLY CLASSIFIED AS A VERISTA, HE WAS NOT, HAVING DIED IN 1886 AFTER COMPOSING ONLY A HANDFUL OF OPERAS."
