When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is--this being opera--in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist.

Bartoli continues her exploration of Steffani's music by championing his last and greatest masterpiece - her first Stabat Mater since the best-selling Pergolesi recording.&quot;La Bartoli sings as enthrallingly as ever, and with this new CD reasserts her place as No.1 in the international diva firmament.&quot; - Financial Times Germany on Mission. Cecilia Bartoli&#39;s exploration of the music of Steffani continues on from her best-selling recording &lsquo;Mission&#39; with an album of the celebrated Stabat Mater alongside Steffani&#39;s greatest sacred works for chorus, orchestra and soloists, constituting the most comprehensive collection of Steffani&#39;s sacred choral music on CD. Bartoli leads an array of internationally celebrated singers including countertenor Franco Fagioli, the bass Salvo Vitale and the two young German tenors Daniel Behle and Julian Pr&eacute;gardien. Steffani&#39;s Stabat Mater is his masterpiece, completed shortly before he died in 1728. It has been described as the most powerful expression of his religious fervour and, at almost half an hour, the largest-scale, most complex and heartfelt of his compositions outside his operas. The opening solo &quot;Stabat Mater dolorosa&quot; featured on the &lsquo;Mission&#39; DVD. The album is completed by six world premiere recordings of the best of Steffani&#39;s remaining sacred music, including Sperate in Deo and Laudate Pueri. These are scored for orchestra, chorus and soloists featuring two young baroque-specialist sopranos Nuria Rial and Yetzabel Arias Fernandez alongside Behle, Pregardien and Vitale. Also amongst these world premieres is Non plus me Ligate, a seven-minute solo motet for Cecilia Bartoli. Released in the same month is an album of Steffani&#39;s greatest orchestral music &lsquo;Ouvertures et Danzes&#39; with Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti</p>

Erscheint das Projekt einer weiteren Gesamtaufnahme ... überhaupt noch sinnvoll? Im Fall des Beethoven Orchesters muss die Frage mit einem eindeutigen Ja beantwortet werden. Denn solch ein Klangdokument gibt Auskunft darüber, wie man es in der Geburtsstadt Beethovens mit dessen Musik hält; ein Zyklus ist eine musikalische Positionsbestimmung. .... Mit diesem Auftakt zur Gesamteinspielung hinterlegt das Beethoven Orchester eine beeindruckende Beethoven-Visitenkarte. Auf solchem Niveau wäre eine Aufnahme unter den Vorgängern Bluniers sicher nicht zu realisieren gewesen (

35 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
