HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI) Rossini/Respighi – La Boutique Fantasque

front-small-boxset
Complete new rip, with the current engines of 2013/14
Respighi’s recasting of a clutch of Rossini tunes, La boutique fantasque, is full of loud, confident music, and in spite of a marked strain of hamminess is undeniably infectious and enjoyable. The LSO under Maestro Gardelli plays it all with a straight face and makes a real success of things. Horns are bright and brilliant, strings ebullient, everything as gross and brash as the music demands, switching to a pleasurably melting and sentimental mood for the ‘Valse lente’ movement and culminating in a noisy, declamatory and expertly rendered fugato. There are plenty of versions of La boutique fantasque in the catalogue, but unless one is particularly addicted to Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops (RCA), this recording is the one I would go for.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Decca) Umberto Giordano – Fedora (Olivero/Del Monaco/Gobbi)

Reposted, now with FF links

This is one of the most dramatic operas you will ever hear…and, sadly, one of the most unseen on stage. When you hear  Olivero & Del Monaco you can clearly understand, why….Who the hell could sing, today, like them? But when sung by a mature soprano like Magda Olivero this music can be electrifying. There is much in this piece that qualifies it as a masterwork. It was once popular but has faded somewhat. It needs to return soon to opera lovers’ hearts.

Reup because of Magda’s death.
The Italian soprano Magda Olivero, one of the most prominent interpreters of the Italian verismo operatic tradition whose career spanned 50 years, has died at 104.
The news agency ANSA said Olivero died Monday, Sept. 8th 2014 in a Milan hospital, where she was admitted after a stroke last month.
The Milan opera house La Scala, where Olivero debuted in 1938, honored her memory with a moment of silence before a performance on Monday. La Scala described Olivero’s voice as charismatic, her acting as formidable and her intelligence as “ready and cutting until the end”.
Olivero took a break from performing after her 1941 marriage, returning to the stage in 1958 in the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur at the urging of the opera’s composer Francesco Cilea. It became one of her most memorable roles.
