Ghena Dimitrova and Giuseppe Giacomini one splendid evening at the opera in Genoa nearly thirty years ago.

Two powerful voices which could stir the emotions like few others: on this particular evening in Genoa Ghena and Giuseppe were in good shape and immediately made that audience connection which makes an evening special, as the often-crazed applause proves.

In the treble, their notes rang out with clarity, power and a lightning-fast attack; their phrasing was as imposing as it was tireless; their emotional tension sent shivers down the audience`s collective spine; and, most importantly of all, they phrased their notes and articulated their words with a severity and intensity which makes the difference between a fine evening of operatic thrills and an interpretation deserving to be recorded for the benefit of those who were not lucky enough to be there on the night.

 

History

Umberto Giordano’s Andrea Chénier

A passionate tale of ill-fated love between an idealistic artist and an aristocratic lady, this quintessential verismo drama is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and loosely based on the life of the poet André Chénier. The opera premiered in 1896 at Milan’s La Scala.
