Olga Peretyatko - Rossini (CD)


The arias that Ms. Peretyatko has chosen for this recording clearly display her gifts as a bel canto specialist: flexible coloratura passage-work, brilliant high notes placed with pinpoint accuracy, and expressive legato phrasing.

The works also reflect the soprano's versatility in both comic operas such as Il barbiere di Siviglia and a serious work like Tancredi. She begins the CD with two different roles from Il viaggio a Reims, the opera she performed at her Rossini Opera Festival debut at the request of legendary Rossini conductor Alberto Zedda. It was Olga Peretyatko's wish for him to record this album with the Orchestra del Teatro Comunale di Bologna and he accepted especially for her. Next is the rarely-heard aria "Ami alfine?" from Matilde di Shabran, the work that brought her back to Pesaro in 2012.

She continues with Amenaide's dramatic dungeon scene from Tancredi, a role she performed in a concert version of the work in Moscow, followed by "Bel raggio lusinghier" from Semiramide, one of Rossini's most important opera seria. Peretyatko reveals her lighter side with arguably the most famous work on the album, Rosina's "Una voce poco fa" from Il barbiere di Siviglia, and comes to a glorious close with an aria from Il turco in Italia, the opera that has brought her repeated success in Amsterdam, Munich, at Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and that she will perform at the Rossini Opera Festival in summer 2016.
