Performed on early 19th century instruments and presented with brisk tempos, bright tone colors, and a lean ensemble sound, this 2013 Decca recording of Vincenzo Bellini's tragic opera Norma strives to re-create the authentic vocal style and instrumental sonorities that would have been heard at its premiere. This reading is based on a critical study of the manuscript and other sources by Maurizio Biondi and Riccardo Minasi. To the extent that Cecilia Bartoli is able to re-create the historical role of Norma and remove the modern associations that came with time (especially from the 20th century performances by Maria Callas, Joan Sutherland, and Montserrat Caballé), she impresses with a lighter voiced and agile heroine who is wholly believable in this highly florid bel canto role. Bartoli is joined by Sumi Jo as Adalgisa, John Osborn as Pollione, and Michele Pertusi as Oroveso, and this cast was chosen to match their vocal qualities and to create expressive balance. The Orchestra La Scintilla is conducted by Giovanni Antonini, who communicates a lively and sometimes pugnacious interpretation of the score, notably in the incisive playing of the winds and timpani. While there is much to praise in this recording, purists may raise an eyebrow over the lowered pitch of the entire opera, tuned to A430. Furthermore, they may be disturbed by the unexpected modulation at the opening of "Casta diva" and myriad embellishments in its second verse, where Bartoli imitates the dazzling effects that were expected of a singer in Bellini's day. However, a real drawback is the sound of the recording, which was made in a church, necessitating extremely close microphone placement and audio enhancements that sound artificially mixed. Even so, considering the merits of Bartoli's bold reassessment of this time-honored role, and the complete rethinking of performance practices to bring them in line with the latest scholarship, this recording deserves a serious hearing, even if it doesn't win over all traditionalists or replace cherished performances from the past. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
This stellar production features a pair of operatic superstars, namely tenor Lawrence Brownlee and soprano supreme Sarah Coburn, who continually appear in the lead roles in top houses worldwide. The remaining characters are beautifully portrayed by distinguished singers from Lithuania and Kazakhstan. Providing brilliant and sensitive choral-orchestral support is Constantine Orbelian (“the singer’s dream collaborator”) leading the Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra and the Kaunas State Choir. In June 2021, Orbelian was named Music Director and Principal Conductor of New York City Opera. Bellini’s I Puritani is considered by many to offer the most beautiful music among some of his best-known operas, several of which are sublime masterpieces of the spectacular bel canto style of singing. © Delos

Fabio Biondi, who shows up at extremely regular intervals in the nineteenth century repertoire, is back with a release exploring the unfairly neglected Vincenzo Bellini. A suitable team was assembled for the task, dominated by Valentina Farcas and Vivica Genaux, whose voices are supported by the strong leadership of the late Italian director.

Booklet
Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi bears little resemblance to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet for a good reason; it's based not on the play but on a sixteenth century Italian story that Shakespeare also used source material. Librettist Felice Romani pared the story down to five characters and simplified the plot so that it is like Shakespeare's only in broadest outline. This recording, taken from a live 2008 Vienna performance, delivers fully on the promise of the era of bel canto: beautiful singing. Anna Netrebko is a radiant Juliet. She soars over the orchestra and other singers with agility and grace, and her tone is unfailingly focused, fresh, and pure. She also brings a touching and convincing vulnerability to the role. Bellini wrote Romeo as a trouser role for mezzo-soprano (even though the practice had largely been abandoned at that point) because, having worked with the singers at La Fenice, where the work would have its premiere, he knew there was no tenor in the company who could adequately fill a leading romantic role, and legendary mezzo Giuditta Grisi was conveniently available. It requires something of a leap to accept this convention in bel canto repertoire, but Elína Garanca is vocally ideal for this music. She sings with exceptional depth and tonal richness, and her legato is wonderfully creamy. Bass Tiziano Bracci, tenor Joseph Calleja, and baritone Robert Gleadow make strong impressions in their relatively brief roles, particularly Calleja as Tebaldo, even though his duets with his rival Romeo, because of the voicing, tend to sound like love duets. Bellini provides the singers with music of extraordinary grace, but the plot doesn't activate his strongest dramatic instincts, and the opera as a whole succeeds far better as an opportunity for showcasing beautiful singing than as a coherent theatrical experience. Fabio Luisi leads Wiener Symphoniker and Wiener Singakademie in an expressive and well-paced performance. The sound is remarkably clean, expansive, and well-balanced for a live performance, with virtually no stage or audience noise. © TiVo
