Lucia di Lammermoor is a dramma tragico (tragic opera) in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Salvadore Cammarano wrote the Italian language libretto loosely based upon Sir Walter Scott's historical novel The Bride of Lammermoor.Donizetti wrote Lucia di Lammermoor in 1835, a time when several factors led to the height of his reputation as a composer of opera. Gioachino Rossini had recently retired and Vincenzo Bellini had died shortly before the premier of Lucia leaving Donizetti as "the sole reigning genius of Italian opera"…

Album by one of the best light lyric tenors in the world in the second half of the twentieth century, the Spanish Alfredo Kraus (1927-1999), also considered the greatest bel canto singers of his generation and one of the greats. Kraus was not given to do musical concessions out of the repertoire that was more like his voice and style, but this album, reissued on CD in 1998 from the original in 1958, is one of those samples with a repertoire dedicated to the popular Italian music. Kraus is accompanied by the 'Orquesta de Cámara de Madrid' conducted by Enrique Estela, on arrangements by José Olmedo.

One of the best lyric tenors in the world in the second half of the twentieth century is the Spanish Alfredo Kraus (1927-1999), also considered the greatest in bel canto of his generation.

At the outset, I have to say that this opera is one of my least favorites. Somehow, it just doesn't communicate with me. I lived with the Sutherland-Pavarotti recording on London for a long time, listened to it occassionally, and then left it on the shelf. I know that both of them were acclaimed for their performances on this London recording, and of course, Sutherland and Pavarotti's singing certainly merit such acclaim. That said, however, I found both of them very ungainly in this music.

Verdi, child of the people, king of popular opera, began life as the son of an innkeeper. He was brought up in modest circumstances. He first received lessons from the village priest, who was amazed by the young musician’s talents. Verdi’s musical education was rounded and complete: at the age of sixteen, the composer wrote fugues, masses and symphonies, which he would later destroy. As he met with reticence in Milan, he settled in Busseto where he fell victim to the pettiness of the town. However, his strong willpower enabled him to pursue his musical path without paying heed to what people said…
