Description

I Puritani (CD)

Bellini’s final opera, one of the peaks of the bel canto repertoire, is handled by Riccardo Muti with characteristic sensitivity and integrity.

His concern for dramatic truth, and for fidelity to the score, is shared by the cast, led by Montserrat Caballé as Elvira, the emotionally fragile heroine, and Alfredo Kraus as her lover Arturo. Fulfilling the music’s virtuoso demands with beauty and elegance, the singers offer interpretations of extraordinary sympathy and insight.

History

Vincenzo Bellini’s I Puritani

Bellini’s last opera, a love story set against the background of the English Civil War in the 1640s, is a vocal showcase that features another of the composer’s great mad scenes for the leading soprano. The work’s 1835 premiere starred four of the most prominent singers of the day who afterwards became known as the “Puritani quartet.”
