Sony Classical announces a further batch of complete recordings from the CBS/Sony and RCA Victor catalogues.

The newest installment of this popular series features some unusual repertoire as well as documents of the New York Metropolitan Opera in its postwar heyday.

Rossini is represented in this collection by his two best-loved comic operas.

The 1982 La Scala recording of Il barbiere di Siviglia conducted by Riccardo Chailly stars Marilyn Horne as Rosina, Leo Nucci as Figaro and “such seasoned buffos as Enzo Dara and Samuel Ramey, both excellent. … Chailly shapes the Act I finale in a way which sets it before us, musically and theatrically, with special lucidity” (Gramophone).
 

History

Its story of two young lovers, an elderly guardian who wants the girl for himself, and Figaro, the resourceful barber of the title make Gioachino Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia (1816) one of opera’s most beloved comedies. At the end of the first act, the leading characters, confused by what’s going on, sing about their feeling of hearing the sound of an anvil being hammered inside their heads—a turn of phrase taken literally in director Bartlett Sher’s hit Met production.
