Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sony Classical is delighted to offer lovers of singing another ten complete recordings from the RCA Red Seal, CBS/Sony Classical and Eurodisc catalogues. The latest instalment of this wide-ranging series not only features some of the greatest voices of the last century but also spotlights once popular works that have been unduly neglected in recent times. Bel canto artistry can be heard in the live 1985 recording of Rossini’s wonderfully lyrical opera Tancredi from La Fenice in Venice, starring Marilyn Horne in the title role and soprano Lella Cuberli. Wrote Penguin Guide: “The purity and beauty of [Cuberli’s] tone, coupled with immaculate coloratura make it a memorable performance … Horne gives a formidable performance in the breeches role Read more of Tancredi … Ernest Palacio is an accomplished Rossini tenor, agile in the role of Argirio.”


The recording of Rossini’s first grand tragic opera, composed when he was 20, is superb, with Marilyn Horne in staggering form, and a strong cast all round conducted by Ralf Weikert.
