In this eagerly-awaited complete opera recording from superstar Andrea Bocelli, the tenor assembles a fine cast to explore Verdi's most spectacular work: the award-winning American soprano Kristin Lewis takes the role of Aida, the brilliant Italian mezzo Veronica Simeoni as Amneri. Giorgio Giuseppini takes the role of Il Re (the Egyptian King), the powerful Ambrogio Maestri ("Italy's answer to Bryn Terfel") as Amonasro and Carlo Colombara, renowned Verdi bass, as Ramfis

Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( )

33 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."La Bartoli sings as enthrallingly as ever, and with this new CD reasserts her place as No. 1 in the international diva firmament." - Financial Times Germany on Mission. Cecilia Bartoli's exploration of the music of Steffani continues on from her best-selling recording ‘Mission' with an album of the celebrated Stabat Mater alongside Steffani's greatest sacred works for chorus, orchestra and soloists, constituting the most comprehensive collection of Steffani'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 Prégardien. Steffani'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 "Stabat Mater dolorosa" featured on the ‘Mission' DVD. The album is completed by six world premiere recordings of the best of Steffani'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's greatest orchestral music ‘Ouvertures et Danzes' with Diego Fasolis and I Barocchisti

Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

38 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the scintillating direction of James Levine, the Met's orchestra and chorus add more than a dash of seasoning to Bizet's colorful score. A brilliant cast makes this popular work seem utterly fresh. Agnes Baltsa is riveting as Carmen, the impetuous gypsy woman determined to always be her own woman--while having any man she desires. José Carreras is heartbreaking as Don José, the man who falls into her snare, makes the mistake of loving her, and cannot stand to lose her to the strutting matador, Escamillo (Samuel Ramey)

An adaptation of the Cinderella story. The story is the familiar fairy tale but with the fairy element left out. In place of the fairy godmother, we have Alidoro, a philosophic person and friend of the Prince. The glass slipper is replaced with a pair of bracelets. One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending

46 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
