Notes and Editorial Reviews

A unique and carefully-crafted personal selection of Verdi arias and songs that takes us on a musical journey from Verdi's earliest compositions (1838) to the very last he wrote for the tenor voice: the beautiful aria from Falstaff "Dal labbro il canto estasiato vola" (1893).

Featuring familiar, universal favourites such as “La donna e mobile” and “Questo o quella”, alongside less familiar gems from across Verdi’s operatic output.

Recorded in Turin with the world-class Orchestra del Teatro Regio di Torino, and under the direction of award-winning conductor, Gianandrea Noseda.

Rolando owes his international breakthrough to Verdi: he has made opera history in La Traviata, Rigoletto and Don Carlo, as well as being a celebrated interpreter of the breath-taking Requiem.

 An unusually thoughtful Selection December 20, 2012 By Detlef Joerss (Mamaroneck, NY) See All My Reviews "Mr. Villazon chose many arias very rarely heard, being brought with clarity, a wonderful voice leaving the wish to hear this in concert." Report Abuse
 Verdi Sampler December 13, 2012 By Joseph Erdeljac (West Chester, PA) See All My Reviews "Villazon is at his best in this Verdi Sampler. His voice and interpretation are right in step with each selection, some of which are not often heard on recordings." Report Abuse
