Virtuoso Rossini Arias: Lawrence Brownlee

Virtuoso Rossini Arias: Lawrence Brownlee


Rossini:

Vieni fra queste braccia (from La gazza ladra)

Que les destins prospères (from Le Comte d'Ory)

D'ogni più sacro impegno (from L'Occasione fa il ladro)

Che ascolto (from Otello)

Ah dovè il cimento (from Semiramide)

Tu seconda il mio disegno (from Il Turco in Italia)

O fiamma soave (from La donna del lago)

Terra amica (from Zelmira)


This album of spectacular rarities by Gioacchino Rossini from superstar tenor Lawrence Brownlee – his firstever aria collection with orchestra – is long overdue. It not only captures the most exciting bel canto tenor voice of our time in its absolute prime, but also offers a choice selection of rarely heard vocal blockbusters – drawn from several of the old master’s most rarely performed operas.

Brownlee’s voice is unique in the bel canto repertoire. While dripping juicy emotion, it boasts uncanny evenness of tone and timbre from top to bottom; no other tenor can deliver this repertoire’s highest notes with his special blend of rapid-fire vibrato and a thrilling, chesty ring. He nails the speediest and most florid runs with jaw-dropping flexibility, precision and dead-on pitch. It all adds up to a blazing, “shiverme-timbers” vocal phenomenon that’s guaranteed to make any opera fan go weak in the knees. The Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra – under the assured baton of Constantine Orbelian – furnishes sympathetic and sonorous support.

Two of the biggest names in opera join forces for a live performance from historic Red Square in the heart of Moscow, captured in stunning sound and vision with 18 high definition cameras and 5.1 cinema surround sound.

Recorded at a superb live concert on 19 June 2013, Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky return to their native Russia, singing a brilliant programme of popular arias and duets from some of the world’s best-loved operas, including Tosca, Eugene Onegin, and, celebrating Verdi's bicentenary, Il trovatore.

They are accompanied by Russia's State Academic Symphony Orchestra “Evgeny Svetlanov” and the huge forces of the Academic Grand Choir Masters of Choral Singing, under the baton of Constantine Orbelian.

Every detail of the once-in-a-lifetime event is faithfully captured by director Frank Hof, whose work includes the memorable Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, and Rolando Villazon performance at Berlin’s Waldbuhne, which Classical CD Review called “an absolute knock-out”… The two brought “the audience to a stunned silence with the despairing aria from Eugene Onegin” Bloomberg reported.

7500 people were present on the Red Square, more than 400 cinemas have screened the concert worldwide. Channel 1 ( Russia) , ZDF (Germany) , Arte ( France, Germany) and ORF (Austria) all have been broadcasting the Red Square concert- literally millions of viewers have seen this great evening.

Marcelo Alvarez (tenor)

St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra, Constantine Orbelian

“Marcelo Alvarez gave his usual passionate and thrilling performance … taking advantage of his beautiful voice by phrasing the musical lines with elegance.” Ingrid Haas

This review excerpt, covering a recent Metropolitan Opera performance, is entirely typical of the acclaim that Alvarez – one of the supreme tenors of our time – consistently inspires in his many appearances worldwide. We at Delos offer this album as a richly deserved tribute to a legendary artist, now celebrating his twentieth year of distinguished operatic achievement.

In this sterling collection of arias from mostly “Verismo” operas, Alvarez delivers electrifying accounts of both popular and lesser-known selections by masters like Puccini, Leoncavallo, Giordano, Mascagni and Massenet. You will also hear – possibly for the first time – a fascinating array of choice rarities by Verismo-era composers (Gomes, Cilea, Zandonai, and Halévy) who were prominent in their day, but whose music has since fallen into comparative neglect. Maestro Constantine Orbelian – leading the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra – provides skillful and sensitive support.

The bass voice is more prominent in Russian opera than in other national styles, with basses often assigned the roles of men in positions of great authority and influence (ie kings, military heroes) – hence this album’s title, “Power Players.”

Distinguished Russian Bass Ildar Abdrazakov, now 37, devoted his early years to Italian and French repertoire – but he has returned to his national operatic roots as his voice has deepened over time, making it supremely well-suited to the richer vocal sound called for by the great Russian roles.

“Say WHAAT? Laugh to classical music? Heaven forbid, not ME!”

That’s no doubt what far too many soberly dignified classical music fans might well say upon learning about this very different new compilation of humor in classical music from Delos. But, just stop and think: Weren’t your favorite classical “gods” also human beings? And isn’t a sense of humor an almost universal component of human nature? How many of you have found yourselves resisting the urge to smile, snicker, or “LOL” to certain passages of great music, simply because you took it (and its creators) entirely too seriously?

The simple truth is, many of the greatest composers who ever lived had functional funnybones, and LOVED musical jokes and other classical chicanery. Realizing this, we at Delos have combed through our extensive back catalog to come up with prime examples of music that will get you to grinning, giggling or even guffawing to the art of top classical masters! And we mean standouts like Vieuxtemps, Rimsky-Korsakoff, Shostakovich, Khachaturian, Francaix, Lang, and others. You can count on top-notch performances from artists like Maestro Constantine Orbelian and his Moscow Chamber Orchestra, tenor John Aler, the Italian Saxophone Quartet, and tenor Donald George (with pianist Lucy Mauro).

They say that laughter is the best medicine. So here’s a collection that you can file in your musical “medicine cabinet. “ Then – whenever life gets you down – let Delos help you feel better!

“A short but very sweet and genial programme...Shostakovich’s naughtiness delights through his Golden Age Polka; one can imagine how this little gem deflated bureaucratic pomposity...A tonic.” MusicWeb International, 26th July 2013
