"Giulio Cesare" is the most famous and popular of Handel's many operas. In fact, for a long time it was the only one surviving in the repertoire, and brilliant productions of it in the 1960s were responsible for inciting interest in other Handel operas. Giulio Cesare contains perhaps a greater variety of beautiful arias and choruses than any other Handel opera, and has one of the best plots. This 1989 recording stars contralto Martine Dupuy, very famous in France but little known in the Western hemisphere. She made a sterling reputation in Baroque opera as well as the opere serie of Rossini, in which she has been adjudged incomparable.

Countertenor Valer Sabadus is one of the world's most successful artists of the baroque music scene. "One of the best countertenors of our day" (Fonoforum), "what he achieves to dizzying heights of naturalness, is simply overwhelming," judges the press. Immediately for his first album at Sony Classical with opera arias by Gluck, he was awarded the 2015 ECHO Klassik.

As part of their comprehensive survey of the music of Claudio Monteverdi, Claudio Cavina and La Venexiana delivered an exceptional version of L’Orfeo, a reading which had been honed by their trailblazing interpretations of the composer’s madrigals. This highly-esteemed recording of the favola in musica – critics applauded and fêted it in many different countries – subsequently dropped out of the catalogue and Glossa is very pleased to have the opportunity to return it there as part of this year’s 450th anniversary commemorations of the composer’s birth.

Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece I Capuleti e i Montecchi, inspired by the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet, is what The New York Times calls “an opera of definite dramatic appeal.” The cast is headlined by international stars Joyce DiDonato (winner of the Grammy and the ECHO Klassik) and Nicole Cabell as the ill-fated lovers Romeo and Giulietta.

If you're looking for one album documenting the career of Marilyn Horne, this is the one to buy. Composed mostly of operatic excerpts from the 1960s and '70s, but also including some art song and concert selections from the 1980s, Decca's Just for the Record: The Golden Voice captures the sound and fury of Horne in her prime. Most everything Horne was known for is here: Handel, Rossini, Bellini, some Verdi, and Bizet's Carmen.

Music of the Trecento At the dawn of the fourteenth century, the Trecento, an Italian tradition of polyphonic music with texts in the vernacular tongue began to develop. The first centres were the towns and courts of Lombardy in the north. Before, French musical and literary influence had been strong both by the imported culture of emigrated troubadours from Southern France and by some of the teachers at the Paduan university who had studied music at the University of Paris.

Biocrazia è il terzo lavoro in studio per i Caruana Mundi. Un disco di denuncia netta, in note e versi, all’esercizio di un potere politico che non si limita alle cose materiali e ai beni naturali ma pretende di monitorare e gestire la vita di ognuno di noi. Biocrazia, sin dal titolo, vuole mettere in risalto il legame tra la dimensione della politica e quella della vita, intesa nella sua caratterizzazione strettamente biologica. I brani si snodano intorno al rapporto dell’uomo con tutto ciò che di drammatico lo circonda: conflitti mondiali, migrazioni, insicurezza sociale, ambientale, biologica, il controllo degli individui attraverso internet, la confusione e l’inadeguatezza della politica verso temi importanti.

In this high-definition film of Bellini's historical bel canto drama, "I Puritani", tenor superstar Juan Diego Flórez is partnered by new young Georgian soprano Nino Machaidze, in her first appearance on a Decca DVD. Joining them in a striking new staging by Pier'Alli at the Teatro Comunale di Bologna is celebrated bass baritone, Ildebrando D'Arcangelo (DG).
The context is England's Civil War between the Roundheads (the Parliamentarians, or Puritans of the title) and the Cavaliers (Royalists). A love triangle between Arturo (a Puritan), Riccardo (a Royalist) and the beautiful Elvira results in a drama of escapes, disguises and captures, during which Elvira loses her reason, before a final pardon restores her senses and unites her with her beloved Arturo.

The source for the songs on this release is a manuscript in the library of Christ Church College, Oxford. Its title page bears the following: “Musica del Signor Angelo Micheli/ Uno de Musici della Capella / de Reyna di Swecia / Uppsaliae Martii 21 / 1653 / a 2 et 3 voce.” The mystery of how a collection of Italian secular songs of the mid 16th century was compiled in Sweden and ended up in England is, fortunately, relatively easy to solve. In 1651, Queen Christiana requested that the bass Alessandro Cecconi put together a company of Italian musicians to reside at the Swedish court.

Based on an epic poem by Niccolò Forteguerri and set in the times of the Crusades, Ricciardo e Zoraide is a drama full of infatuations and jealousy, imprisonment and murderous plots, concluding with a gallant rescue and a benevolent outcome. The problems of such a complex and intense libretto were solved by Rossini through sheer dramatic skill, sophisticated melodic inventiveness, an emphasis on contrasts between dark and light, and the innovative and extensive use of on-stage musicians. This rarely heard opera is a true bel canto feast that reinvents the long tradition of chivalrous tales that still fascinate us today.
