Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi is the only opera Woody Allen has ever staged. The 2015 version on this release is a revival of Woody Allen’s 2008 production for L.A. Opera, a hilarious parody of classical Italian cinema stereotypes. Features Plácido Domingo in the leading role as Gianni Schicchi.
The debut album “Los Misterios De Eleusis” from the Argentinian quartet Nau Aletheia is a little gem full of beautiful themes and melodies. Because of the diversity in the music, it is for a reviewer difficult to describe their music. It is an interesting mixture of Classical, dark Neo Classical, Jazz fusion and Prog. This is a real progressive rock release for the open minded music lover. Highly original music with some little references to bands like Univers Zero, Änglagård and King Crimson. You can find those references in the very strong first part of this album. The second part of the album is more classical and jazz oriented.
