Kaunas State Choir, Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra, Constantine Orbelian

Our first-ever full-length Italian opera recording, Delos’s star-studded current release of Giuseppi Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra promises to make quite a splash among today’s opera fans. As Verdi was entering his glorious “late period” (Otello and Falstaff) he wrote and re-worked much of Simon Boccanegra, a work that he had first tackled in 1857. The opera emerged in 1881 as a powerful masterpiece, although one that has been unfairly neglected, in comparison with Verdi’s other works on that level. So it’s high time for an authoritative new release of an opera that gives glamorous title star Dmitri Hvorostovsky – considered by many to be the world’s greatest Verdi baritone – the chance to record what he calls “…one of the most complex, deepest characters in the whole baritone repertoire.”

Hvorostovsky goes on to say, in a special introduction he wrote for this album, that among his favorite scenes in the opera is the Council Chamber scene: “Simon’s address to the people, ‘Plebe! Patrizi! Popolo!’ is the creed of a great statesman. As he cries for peace and love, the whole crowd is swept along by the same surge of passion!”

Dmitri Hvorostovsky (baritone)

Style of Five, Novaya Opera Orchestra, Constantine Orbelian

A nostalgia-inspiring survey drawn from the extensive body of popular Russian WWII-era songs, this album is the sequel to two all-time favorite Delos titles: Where Are You, My Brothers and Moscow Nights. These sentimental, melancholic, and passionate songs have a strong global appeal, expressing as they do the universal themes and feelings common to soldiers the world over. Operatic superstar baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky delivers these musical mainstays of Russian culture with relaxed classical technique and the kind of refined, yet soulful and deeply affecting emotional impact that have made his concerts of these pieces wildly popular all across Russia and around the world.

Constantine Orbelian leads the superb Novaya Opera Orchestra and the renowned Ministry of Internal Affairs Chorus – with flavorful idiomatic touches from the unique Style of Five Ensemble of authentic Russian folk instruments.

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.

State Academic Symphony Orchestra “Evgeny Svetlanov”, Academic Grand Choir “Masters of Choral Singing”, Constantine Orbelian

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.

Masters of Choral Singing & Russian National Orchestra, Constantine Orbelian

Rising superstar soprano Dinara Alieva – a mainstay at the Bolshoi Opera since 2010 – has been entrancing opera and concert audiences throughout Europe and elsewhere ever since, appearing to consistent acclaim in major roles at many of the world’s top houses.

This exciting and consistently delightful live concert video – following her highly successful prior CD release on Delos, 'Pace mio Dio' (DE3462) – showcases not only her voluptuous voice, interpretive power and stylistic versatility, but also (thanks to the visual element) her stunning glamour and charismatic stage presence.

The varied and highly appealing program encompasses operatic favourites from such composers as Charpentier, Massenet and Cilea – as well as lighter fare from the Spanish Zarzuela and the Viennese operetta traditions, plus several beloved popular standards.

Woven through the vocal program is a series of scintillating orchestral bonbons courtesy of conductor Constantine Orbelian (per Opera News, “…the singer’s dream collaborator) leading the superb Russian National Orchestra and the vaunted Grand Choir, Masters of Choral Singing.

Also includes a Potpourri of Russian songs: 'Homage to Deanna Durbin', from the film 'The Butler’s Sister'.
