…Massimo Checchetto’s opening set…is winningly picturesque…Bepi Morassi’s staging within it seems perfectly natural, its charms never forced. Pratt has a beautiful, expressive face, ever alive to Amina’s changing fortunes and her unchanging love. Her voice, too, is lovely and expressive…She’s endearingly simple, just as Amina should be. Gabriele Ferro conducts the Fenice forces with grace and practiced style…The sound is spacious and the Blu-ray image crystal clear. (Opera News)

Deutsche Grammophon is proud to release this truly legendary opera recording from the golden age of stereo, remastered in 96kHz from the original analogue tapes, presented on HighResAudio. The Barber of Seville, or The Futile Precaution is an opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini with an Italian libretto by Cesare Sterbini. The libretto was based on Pierre Beaumarchais's French comedy Le Barbier de Séville (1775). The première of Rossini's opera (under the title Almaviva, o sia L'inutile precauzione) took place on 20 February 1816 at the Teatro Argentina, Rome.

Abbado's Verdi recordings are some of the finest available and this Requiem recording is no expection. Abbado takes a less ferocious approach than say Muti, or Barenboim, balancing the dramatic moments effectively against the more introspective aspects of the score. Ricciarelli is in fine form here, singing with a fine sense of line and intense emotional declamation. Her intonation is perfect. Verrett blends seamlessly with Ricciarelli, making the most of their duet and capturing the intense sadness of much of the writing quite well. Domingo, in his first recording of the part, provides a steady stream of golden tone, effortlessly produced. His emotional temperature runs about right here - not overly dramatic - after all, this is not Aida - but strong feelings kept on a tight rein. Ghiaurov is phenomenal. His gigantic bass somehow anchoring the entire quartet and chorus into an imposing yet gorgeous Verdian soundscape. There are many excellent Verdi Requiem recordings - this is surely one of the very best.

La tolleranza è uno dei pilastri della vita civile ed è condizione necessaria della libertà, ma proprio per questo deve avere un limite: non è giusto, ed è molto pericoloso, essere tolleranti con coloro che vogliono privarci delle nostre libertà. Il rispetto delle credenze altrui non deve spingerci a rinnegare le nostre convinzioni. La consapevolezza dei problemi che l'Italia e il mondo devono affrontare non può indurci a essere catastrofisti, ma deve costringerci a combattere ogni giorno contro i professionisti della lagna. In questo pamphlet dissacrante e ottimista, Claudio Cerasa ci fornisce una carrellata di utili argomenti di discussione tratti dalla cronaca e dal dibattito politico-culturale, e prende di mira i pessimisti a oltranza, i protezionisti corporativi, i duri e puri per i quali tutto è bianco o nero..

Perché oggi è molto più facile sentirsi offrire dello street food anziché del "cibo di strada"? Come mai i politici dichiarano di voler refreshare il Paese se intendono semplicemente "rivoltarlo come un calzino"? Chi teme un competitor e cerca un endorsement non potrebbe aver paura di un "concorrente" o di un "avversario" e aspirare a un "sostegno" o a un "appoggio"? Questi esempi ci segnalano un'evoluzione preoccupante dell'italiano che negli ultimi anni si sta logorando non solo per il proliferare degli anglismi ma anche per un grave peggioramento delle nostre cognizioni linguistiche. Siamo ormai un Paese dove i fiumi non straripano (una parola perduta!) più, semmai esondano, e i tribunali emettono "ordinazioni" (sacerdotali?) invece che "ordinanze". Come presidente dell'Accademia della Crusca, Claudio Marazzini combatte ogni giorno per difendere la nostra meravigliosa lingua e attrezzarla per le sfide del futuro..

Five years after first conducting the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra in their Venezuelan home, Claudio Abbado continues his commitment to this stunning ensemble in this first joint audiovisual concert recording. Prokofiev's extrovert Scythian Suite is a gift for the boundless energy of these young players, while the intricacy and anguish of Berg's Lulu-Suite are an Abbado speciality, with soprano Anna Prohaska, in her Lucerne Festival debut, singing the heroine's dazzling statement of self-justification. The concert ends with an impassioned account of Tchaikovsky's Pathétique, his final symphony, one of the most moving works in music history.

A studio recording made in association with staged performances in Vienna in 1989 features the very beefy Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Abbado with Agnes Baltsa’s tangy mezzo giving a very characterful portrayal as Isabella. …[E]xpert Rossinians Corbelli and Enzo Dara sing Haly and Taddeo and are joined by a very characterful Ruggero Raimondi as Mustafa. Despite the size of the band, the performance goes along with zip with the finale of act one particularly invigorating.
