Gifted as both a writer and a musician, Arrigo Boito wrote the libretto to his own opera Mefistofele. Based on Goethe’s Faust and the eternal struggle between Good and Evil, Mefistofele is the pinnacle of Boito’s compositional achievement and has retained a place in the operatic repertoire.

International Record Review

July/August 2011

“Stefano Ranzani upholds the energy in the swift-moving sections...He contributes well to the tension and responds to the different speeds, from rapid chorus to inward-looking aria. Everything benefits from an extremely fine recording. I find it one of the best versions on disc.”
