front-small-boxsetOne of the few records I got from my beloved uncle Totò after his dead
Admirers of the incomparable tenor Tito Schipa will not want to be without this. No less than 15 arias Schipa recorded between 1924 and 1928 are included. Transfers have been made from clean, faultless 78 originals, some of them very rare. Schipa’s voice seems to emerge successfully from the special Nimbus transferring process. The result is magic. What a wonderful voice! This is one of those rare cds that can be played over and over a hundred times and the music and emotion remains as fresh as the first listening!

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Sony) Jonas Kaufmann – The Verdi Album

Brand new, played here for the 1st time
It was with Verdi that the leading tenor of our time, Jonas Kaufmann, made his international breakthrough in 2006 when he sang Alfredo in La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. And for Kaufmann, the Verdi bicentenary in 2013 will be dominated by performances of works by the great Italian opera composer, including his debut album for Sony Classical, The Verdi Album. Recorded with Pier Giorgio Morandi conducting the Orchestra dell’Opera di Parma, this new album features thirteen of Verdi’s greatest tenor hits, eleven of which are recorded for the first time by Kaufmann. His choice of arias demonstrates the remarkable breadth of Kaufmann’s musical versatility and expression.
