Description

Marina Rebeka: Spirito (CD)

A masterpiece of expressiveness and virtuosic performance.

This album combines Marina Rebeka’s thrilling singing, dramatic Bel Canto music based
on original manuscripts, and Jader Bignamini’s nuanced conducting of the Teatro
Massimo di Palermo Orchestra and Chorus.

With SPIRITO, Marina Rebeka enchants us once again with her distinctive voice and
irresistible personality. Raising the bar after her acclaimed album `Amor Fatale`, she has
handpicked some of the most challenging pieces of the dramatic Bel Canto repertoire
and performed them with a formidable facility.

Her deep understanding and mastery of the style, matched by an outstanding vocal
technique, shed a new and refreshing light on these timeless masterpieces.
For this album, as she did for `Amor Fatale`, Marina Rebeka traveled the world in search
of the original manuscrips of each piece, faithfully rendering the composers` first ideas
in this recording. Additionally, and following the lonstanding tradition of Bel Canto
singers, she wrote her own variations of the soprano parts.

`A larger-than-life performance...her top notes are searing and her low notes are
fierce.` THE GUARDIAN

`She makes every note count in the dizzying vocal roulades, giving dramatic point to the
passagework.` NEW YORK TIMES

`Her legato, diction and belcanto technique were outstanding.` OPERAWIRE

`It`s a big, glossy sound, with an evenly produced—and somewhat uniformly applied—
lusciousness of timbre.` GRAMOPHONE
