Rossini: Il Turco in Italia
By Decca
In Stock

mpn: 028945892429, ean: 0028945892429,

4.9 out of 5 stars with 220 reviews
This Pirandello-like, 1814 comedy of manners has long lived in the shadow of Rossini's better-known L'Italiana in Algeri, but this recording, more than either of its predecessors, allows it to bloom in all its ironic loveliness. Cecilia Bartoli, a born comedian, sings expressively and angelically while her character behaves devilishly, and the supporting cast is no less effective. Riccardo Chailly brings out all of the score's humor, and all of its warmth as well. A little-known gem for fans of

Britten: A Midsummer Night's Dream (View amazon detail page) ASIN: B0000041WB Binding: Audio CD UPC: 028942566323 Following the premiere of A Midsummer Night's Dream, one critic proclaimed the opera ''an achievement far beyond the capacity of any other living composer.'' Another called it ''dreadful'' while still another marveled at the score's ''audacious inspiration . . .in which extreme economy of invention and lavish imagination walk hand-in-hand in truly dream-like amity.'' Sure enough,

Wagner: Tannhäuser ~ Domingo, Studer, Baltsa, Salminen, A. Schmidt; Sinopoli
By Deutsche Grammophon
In Stock

mpn: 028942762527, ean: 0028942762527,

4.0 out of 5 stars with 202 reviews
CD Another Paris Tannhäuser recording, this one seeing the adaptable Placido Domingo take a break from the world of Italianate opera to try on the mantle of Heldentenor. Domingo's clear, manly voice is well suited to the transformation--precisely why Italians usually don't think of him as a bella voce. Agnes Baltsa approaches the role of Venus in a less shrill and more human manner than often is heard in portrayals of the excitable goddess. The sound is exceptionally clear in the recording, a

The Irish Tenors / McNamara, McDermott, Kearns, Tynan
By Tv Matters

mpn: AManPro-0043693, ean: 0658926855220,

4.6 out of 5 stars with 231 reviews
Forty years after the Clancy Brothers found popularity singing traditional Irish folksongs to an American audience, along comes the Irish Tenors, the trio of John McDermott, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan. Backed by plenty of coverage on public television, the three tenors perform a soothing and nostalgic mix of Emerald Isle tunes--from ''Danny Boy'' to ''When Irish Eyes Are Smiling,'' along with a few surprises. Recorded live at the Royal Dublin Society Main Hall with a light orchestra, the

Bidu Sayao: La Damoiselle elue / Opera Arias
By Sony

4.4 out of 5 stars with 102 reviews
Even if she wasn't game enough to wear a Columbia record in her hair (as pictured on the cover), Bidu Sayao had a voice that could make you forget Kathleen Battle. This Brazilian soubrette of the 1940s was as vocally lusterous and far more versatile, taking on heavier roles such as La Traviata and even an aria from Madame Butterfly with a gracious sense of style, passionate sense of character, well-placed high notes and an endearingly fallable coloratura technique. She's most at home in

Isabella in L'Italiana was one of Marilyn Horne's great roles, and this recording attests to it. The character is smart, spunky, and sarcastic, with a sure-of-herself twinkle in her eye and voice. Horne was so in control of her vast talent when this set was recorded that she seems to be born into the role. She tosses off the most difficult coloratura with ease. The tone is big and grand from high B to low B and back again, and the fun she's obviously having is infectious. Her supporting cast is

Compared to Knappertsbusch's stodgy, lethargic Bayreuth Parsifals from the 50s, this 1964 performance, Knappertsbusch's last, is quite different. Textures have lightened, tempos are faster, and Wagner's long arcs soar instead of sag. These qualities characterize Knappertsbusch's ''official'' 1962 Philips Parsifal, but 1964 has a better cast. Hotter relishes Gurnemanz's long, inward monologues, while, by contrast, Vickers projects the title role with wound-up intensity. Thomas Stewart's

Wagner: Der Ring des Nibelungen (Milan, 1950)
By Music & Arts Program
In Stock

ean: 0017685091421,

4.5 out of 5 stars with 290 reviews
Wilhelm Furtwangler's only live opera house recording of the complete Ring is indispensable for serious Wagnerians. (A 1953 broadcast concert series from Rome had an inferior orchestra and lesser singers.) This 1950 La Scala Ring with the house band and chorus and a stellar cast of mostly German Wagnerians sports crude recorded sound, but the Music & Arts transfer is far superior to its previous incarnations. Furtwangler's conducting is incandescent. His command of structure is awesome; you

4.5 out of 5 stars with 63 reviews
Originally intended by London to celebrate Sir Georg Solti's 85th birthday, this new release of Solti's complete Ring Cycle at mid-price is an eloquent eulogy to his greatness. Solti was the first to record the entire Ring Cycle, and even now, three decades after, it remains the standard by which all others are judged. Birgit Nilsson, Kirsten Flagstad and a young Joan Sutherland star. $167.00 list price. Modern storage media (CD/DVD) offer both high fidelity and great reliability in the

Maria Callas is at the top of her game, and still very much in her vocal prime. Her dramatic approach to ''Tosca'' is arguably even better captured in the live recordings from Covent Garden a decade later, but at that point her voice had lost some of its bloom; depending on your tastes, this may be the better example of her doing the role. Tito Gobbi owned the role of Scarpia, and considered it his finest characterization. Although he and Callas wouldn''t perform the opera together on-stage for
