Rossini's effervescent comedy takes on new life with a superb cast led by conductor Andrew Davis. Kathleen Battle shines as Rosina, a feisty young women with a mind of her own--especially when it comes to love. Rockwell Blake is her suitor, the handsome Count Almaviva, who must outwit Rosina's elderly guardian, Dr. Bartolo (Renato Capecchi), who wants to marry the girl himself. Paolo Montarsolo sings Don Basilio, Rosina's music teacher. And at the center of it all is William Workman as Figaro, the resourceful barber of the title, who pulls the strings and brings the young lovers together

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

25 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

31 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in 5 languages and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El principal atractivo de esta grabación es el espectacular registro sonoro del sello Decca en el que podemos apreciar la dirección brillante, equilibrada y dinámica del maestro Solti. Los cantantes son de reconocida fama pero sus voces no se corresponden con las características que Verdi diseñó para cada personaje. Aún así, la técnica depurada de Pavarotti, la profesionalidad de la Price y el trabajo actoral de Bruson, son elementos más que suficientes para poder disfrutar de esta versión

Gershwin's world by George Gershwin( Recording )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We worked very hard to personalize the Gershwin material while staying true to the spirit of jazz. Our intentions were to reach inside to the core of each piece in search of the composer's original impulses, and to take those elements and recompose and reconstruct them in our own way."--Container
