Three challenging roles expertly personified by three major singers from the new generation, which some have heralded as the operatic events of the year. Jonas Kaufmann performs his first Radames, Anja Harteros her first Aida, Ludovic Tézier his first Amonasro – and under such dreamy conditions. A real studio recording, not hastily dispatched in a few general sessions, but rather resulting from a long work process which was preceded by a series of presentations in concert version. This work will also highlight the excellent reprisal of Amneris by Ekaterina Semenchuk, who has already played this role on numerous occasions. Pappano affords the stars of the Orchestre de l’Académie Sainte-Cécile in Rome the perfect acoustics of the Parco della Musica de Renzo Piano auditorium. The stars have aligned, even within the music! This new version of Aida is without doubt one of the finest in the work’s discography. The singers go to great lengths to avoid ‘overdoing’ it, which is without doubt due to the complicity of Pappano, who has always been known for his affinity for going back to basics. © QobuzTHE CAST : Anja Harteros (Aida), soprano Jonas Kaufmann (Radames), tenor Ekaterina Semenchuk (Amneris), mezzo-soprano Ludovic Tézier (Amonasro), baritone Erwin Schrott (Ramfis), baritone-basse Marco Spotti (Der King of Egypt), bass Paolo Fanale (The Messenger), tenor Eleonora Buratto (The Priestess), soprano Orchestra e Coro dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia (ligne en plus petit) Antonio Pappano, conductor
