Verdi: Nabucco

Verdi: Nabucco

A live-recording of Nabucco from the Royal Opera House in London in April 2013


Plácido Domingo (Nabucco), Liudmyla Monastyrska (Abigaille), Andrea Caré (Ismaele), Marianna Pizzolato (Fenena) & Vitalij Kowaljow (Zaccaria)

Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Nicola Luisotti (conductor) & Daniele Abbado (director)

On 16 March Sony Classical presents a highlight among its releases of major opera works: a memorable performance of Verdi’s Nabucco from the Royal Opera House in London, recorded live in April 2013. In this production Plácido Domingo made his debut in the role of Nabucco – in the bicentenary year of Verdi’s birth.

With 50 years of stage experience, flourishing in a second career as a baritone, Domingo takes the role of the Babylonian king with undiminished energy and charisma. “From the moment Domingo appears this production ... feels pulsatingly alive,” wrote The Independent, praising the expressive beauty of his singing: “as the majestic Nebuchadnezzar ... Domingo fills the space with ease, and his baritone timbre has much of the old tenor burnish.”

The production was directed by Daniele Abbado, who took the opera’s theme of the enslavement of the Jewish people as his cue to give the opera a 20th-century setting. The chorus and orchestra, expertly led by Nicola Luisotti, an experienced master of Verdi’s music, have also won high praise from the critics.

It is the towering figure of Plácido Domingo whose arrival, in the words of the Financial Times, “has crowned the Royal Opera's new Nabucco with a welcome aura of celebrity. ... Domingo exudes grandeur and authority, taking command of the role..." Thus Nabucco from the Royal Opera House in London takes its place alongside other recordings on Sony Classical from the opera repertoire that have earned acclaim in the specialist music press and among the public.

“Luisotti is able to shape the fluency that Antonio Pappano's orchestra and Renato Balsadonna's chorus have acquired in Verdi into a notably well-paced reading...This Sony Classical release offers a fine overall musical achievement, an outstanding leading lady and (perhaps) the collector's interest of a leading tenor working outside his comfort zone.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2015

Self-produced by Sulic and Hauser, Celloverse showcases 2CELLOS’ unique ability to reinvent classic rock and pop songs, starting with ‘The Trooper Overture’, a metal-meets-classical mash up of Iron Maiden’s hit and Rossini’s ‘William Tell Overture’. The album also includes their take on AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ (having garnered over 30 ‘million views on YouTube), ‘I Will Wait’ by Mumford & Sons and Michael Jackson’s ‘They Don’t Care About Us’. Rounding off Celloverse is the Paul McCartney classic ‘Live and Let Die’, with special guest Lang Lang alongside the title track which is an original song penned and arranged by 2CELLOS themselves.

Propelled into international fame in 2011 after their version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’ went viral following an appearance on Glee, Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser return to their rock roots on their third al-bum, Celloverse. A visually dynamic act, 2CELLOS will create a music video for every song on the album. The deluxe edition of Celloverse features seven of their most popular videos including two live performances from sold-out arena shows in their native Croatia.

2CELLOS playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. They have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out. They have sold out shows around the globe and frequently perform with Sir Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his shows to rapturous acclaim.

Balthasar-Neumann-Orchestra, Balthasar-Neumann-Choir, Thomas Hengelbrock

A live recording of Don Giovanni from the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, recorded on May 23rd 2013, featuring the 'Balthasar-Neumann Choir & Ensdemble', conducted & directed by Thomas Hengelbrock. Erwin Schrott performing in his most celebrated role, Don Giovanni. Featuring a stellar cast of singers – Erwin Schrott, Anna Netrebko, Luca Pisaroni, Malena Ernman. “Schrott creates Don Giovanni in all his malevolent glory — virile, confident, arrogant. He is bursting with animal sexuality, yet manages to hint at the manic obsession that drives the character. Stunning.” Opera Today.

Subtitles: German, English, French, Italian

Aspect Ratio: 16:9 - 1.78:1

“[Schrott] looks wonderful, is a natural and extraordinarily gifted actor, and has so much sinister charm that one understands why no woman can resist him. He has a rich voice, with many subtle shades. This is a definitive account [of the title-role].” BBC Music Magazine, January 2015 ****

“This well-shot, telegenic production...underscores the opera's sexual brutality...[Schrott] oozes his trademark charisma. Luca Pisaroni shows why he's the Leporello of choice these days with a well-moulded baritone, Charles Castronovo sings Don Ottavio's difficult music with exceptional artistry and [Dragojevic] walks off with every scene she's in.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
