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. The great master and lyric teacher was no friend to make concessions out of the musical repertoire that was more suited to his voice and style, but this album, recorded and released in 1965 and reissued in the 90s, is one of those rare samples. Kraus is accompanied by Tuna of Fray Luis de León College of Madrid and plays a total of 12 items of typical rondallas.

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.

Sounds Of Space, the title of Cuban pianist and composer Alfredo Rodriguez’ debut recording, evokes images of science fiction. In truth, it’s about a far more personal adventure. “It’s about the space that surrounds us,” he explains. “In this record I wanted to introduce myself: here are the people, the places and the sounds that have surrounded me, and made me who I am.” A key player in Rodriguez’ extraordinary story is producer Quincy Jones, who co-produced Sounds Of Space with Rodriguez.
