Giovanni Battista Bassani (1657-1716), a relatively important figure in Ferrara, where he served as the cathedral’s maestro di cappella. This oratorio, which in its near-exclusive reliance on arias and recitative displays many of the dramatic characteristics of opera, was composed in 1686 as a tribute to those who died “in the Christian enterprises against the Turks” in 1683. Characteristic of many similar works of the period, its theme (the title means “Death confounded”) concerns an allegorical interaction among five characters–Death, Glory, Piety, Justice, and Lucifer–in which Death laments its powerlessness against the forces of Piety and Glory, who, along with Justice have assured the departed souls of the holy warriors an eternal existence in heaven.

The return of LatteMiele 2.0 with the legendary members Massimo Gori (bass player and singer) and Luciano Poltini (keyboard player) who played in the band from 1974 until 1980 when the group disbanded after the great album 'Aquile E Scoiattoli'. 'Paganini Experience' is dedicated to the "Devil's Violin" Niccolò Paganini… the true first rockstar ever. A dark character, wrapped in mystery, charismatic, with a gloomy aspect. Acclaimed by the crowds, desired by women. Character of the most beloved and at the same time reviled.

Donizetti's opera "Poliuto", based on the play "Polyeucte" by the French composer Pierre Corneille, is now one of the rarest works in the classical opera repertoire. However, this live recording, recorded in the Vienna Konzerthaus in 1986, impresses her with an impressive cast: star tenor José Carreras in the role of Poliuto is accompanied by Italian soprano Katia Ricciarelli as Paolina, who is an absolutely equal star in this recording. The choir of the Wiener Sängerakademie sings, accompanied by the Wiener Symphoniker under the direction of Oleg Caetani.

Danish soprano Ditte Andersen and Swedish mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg were heard to stunning effect in Spedidam's splendid 2006 recording of Gluck's Aristeo and Bauci e Filemone with the ensemble Les Talens Lyriques under Christophe Rousset. Here they tackle another obscure corner of the Baroque: cantatas and operatic arias discovered in the libraries of the palaces at Meinungen and Sonderhausen, many of which were previously unknown. The Italian composers represented include a few who are well known, but they are predominantly obscure – Antonio Caldara, Giovanni Battista Bononcini, as well as his brother Antonio, Francesco Gasparini, Giovanni Battista Alveri, Giuseppe Maria Andrea di Orlandini, Attilio Ariosti, Giovanni Porta, and Tommaso Bernardo Gaffi.

Anton Stepanovich Arensky was born in Novgorod on 12 July 1861 and spent his boyhood years in a comfortable family setting conductive to the early detection and encouragement of his extraordinary musical talent. His father, a physician, was an avid cellist, and his mother was an excellent pianist. Arensky was already composing songs and piano pieces at the age of nine and began his studies at the St. Petersburg Conservatory in 1879. Rimsky-Korsakov, a firm advocate of Russian School and the artistic rival of Tchaikovsky (who was ostracized as a Westernizer) was his composition teacher.

Anna Moffo, as the young and vulnerable heroine Lucia, produces a wonderfully sincere, yet highly romantic performance in this classic recording of Donizetti's Lucia Di Lammermoor. Featuring Georges Prêtre conducting the RCA Italian Opera Chorus and Orchestra, the recording features a stellar cast of singers, including the incomparable Carlo Bergonzi, Mario Sereni, and Ezio Flagello.

Champions of contemporary music, the Quatuor Béla and Noémi Boutin have teamed up with the French-Argentinian composer Daniel D'Adamo to create Sur vestiges. The quintet for two cellos was conceived as a sort of preamble to Schubert's dusky Quintet in C major and its powerful lyricism. Around the tragic themes of a young woman and water, Daniel D'Adamo has sought 'to compose as someone gathering up the vestiges of a forgotten work, observing and recycling them with the constraints of his own time period.' The Quatuor Béla depicts the motionless water, a mirror for the beauty of a young woman intoxicated by her own reflection, portrayed by Noémi Boutin's cello.

A revolutionary treatment of one of the "sacred cows" of the opera repertoire. Daniel Barenboim, who here conducts, invited Munich film director Doris Dorrie to produce Cosi fan tutte for the Staatsoper Berlin in 2002, and the resulting project drew plaudits from die-hard Mozart fans as well as introducing a whole new generation to the opera genre.

Rosa Ponselle was one of the greatest sopranos of the century and this superb collection of recordings from her prime makes that evident. Some have long been the standards against which all others are judged–the Aida tomb scene with Giovanni Martinelli, the Norma "Casta Diva," and much else. Her famous Norma duet, "Mia, o Norma," with Marion Telvey is here, still striking sparks. Lots of Verdi–the big arias and duets from Aida, Trovatore, and Ernani, all sung in a big, stunningly beautiful voice alive to textual nuances. The arias from Spontini's La Vestale are wondrous, but so are the parlor songs, the 1920s "crossover" equivalents. Marston includes several alternate takes, and the transfers are excellent. This should be a cornerstone of any operatic collection.

By the time that Alessandro Scarlatti was writing the two serenatas recorded here by Fabio Bonizzoni and La Risonanza and inaugurating an exciting new series on Glossa, that celebratory cantata form, often employing allegorical characters, had been in existence for a mere half century. Scarlatti, as Bonizzoni says, “was one of the main sources of inspiration for Handel whilst the latter was in Italy, and this creates a real continuity with what we have been doing in the recent past”; notably the much-admired septet of recordings devoted to the Saxon composers Italian chamber cantatas.

iva Vivaldi! is a concert by Italian mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli interspersing arias from the 20 surviving operas of Vivaldi with two concertos. It is given with the early music ensemble Il Giardino Armonico before a very appreciative audience in the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. (There is very little overlap between her studio-recorded Vivaldi Album and this 105-minute concert.) Anyone thinking of Vivaldi's vocal music in the context of his uplifting scared works may get a shock, for Bartoli performs as if her life depended upon it, attacking pieces such as "Armatae Face et Anguibus" from Juditha Triumphans with vengeful gusto. Bartoli's natural Italian and the live atmosphere of Maria Grazia d'Alessio's oboe gives her interpretation of the quietly haunting and melodically rich "Non ti Lusinghi la Crudeltade" from Tito Manlio a particular piquancy. The Flautino Concerto is a most attractive interlude, while the more famous Lute/Violin Concerto beguiles with its exquisite lyricism. –Gary S. Dalkin
