This release by soprano Ermonela Jaho appears on the Opera Rara label, which is dedicated to the revival of neglected operatic repertory. Some of the operas excerpted by Jaho, such as Umberto Giordano's Siberia, certainly fit the bill. Jaho's repertory here is determined by a historical consideration: she records the favorites of a soprano of the early 20th century, Rosina Storchio (said to have been the girlfriend of Arturo Toscanini), to whom she has a certain physical resemblance. There are other obscurities, including the La bohème of not Puccini but Leoncavallo, and there are some well-known pieces by Puccini and Massenet. What really makes this recital stand out, though, is Jaho's interpretive powers. Storchio is said to have had a voice of only moderate size, and this is also true of Jaho, but both, it is safe to say, have brought the house down when the right circumstances converge. Sample almost anywhere, but perhaps try "L'altra notte in fondo al mare," from Arrigo Boito's Mefistofele, which illustrates not only Jaho's dramatic powers but also the remarkable sound engineering here by Opera Rara, working at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia: an uncanny sense of the singer's presence is given, and the closeness of her interaction with the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana under conductor Andrea Battistoni is apparent. The physical CDs are recommended here, for the booklet notes by Jaho and others fill out the context and bring the music alive. A connoisseur's historical release, perhaps, but one that is also highly recommended to newcomers to opera: Jaho conveys what the art form is all about.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.
