La Cenerentola (CD)
Composer(s):    ROSSINI, GIOACCHINO
Artist(s):    FERRO VALENTINI-TERRANI ARAIZA DARA
Label:    SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT (SME2)

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 1980 Cologne recording of La Cenerentola, conducted by Gabriele Ferro “with a mixture of ease and ebullience”, features Enzo Dara “as an amusing Magnifico, the young Francisco Araiza ardent and fresh-voiced as the Prince, and Lucia Valentini Terrani – the leading Cenerentola of her time – giving a reading that is ripe, meaningful and suitably virtuosic in its lustrous, dark-grained way” (Gramophone).

History

Gioachino Rossini’s La Cenerentola

Rossini’s charming version of the Cinderella story brings unexpected realism to the beloved fairy tale by having the lovers find each other without the help of magic. The opera premiered in 1817 and since the bel canto revival in the mid-20th century has become one of the composer’s most frequently performed works.
