Opera Rara Rossini 3 CD


Bruce Ford; Elizabeth Futral; William Matteuzzi; Ildebrando D'Arcangelo; Geoffrey Mitchell Choir; Philharmonia Orchestra; David Parry - conductor.

Hugely admired in its day, this highly innovative score contains some of Rossinis most inspired music. The recording includes the reconstruction of the alternative happy ending (written for Rome in 1820) as well as an aria for Desdemona which the great Giudetta Pasta sang to acclaim in Paris and London.

Otello (1815) is one of the most highly innovative scores composed during Rossini's Neapolitan period and contains some of his most inspired music. Meyerbeer considered its third act 'godlike', praising its 'impassioned recitatives and accompaniments full of vocal colour'.


This opera has glorious music and in act three rises to Shakespearean heights - MICHAEL KENNEDY, Sunday Times
