(ca.1330-1397) L’occhio del cor -
La Reverdie, Christophe Deslignes (organetto) rec. 2018 ARCANAA462 [64:56]
There is much here that is ravishingly beautiful, most of it shot through with the poignant fact of Landini’s blindness.
Modest MUSSORGSKY (1839-1881)Night on Bald Mountain, The Fair at Sorochyntsi, Khovanshchina -
Philharmonia O/Walter Susskind rec. 1953 FORGOTTEN RECORDS FR519 [52:05]
One for the Mussorgsky fans.
Gioacchino ROSSINI(1792-1868) Petite Messe solenelle
- SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart/Rupert Huber
rec. 1995 SWR MUSICSWR19521 [79.33] [JQ]
A reliable performance which is generally well sung.
SirJohn TAVENER (1944-2013)Angels -
George Castle (organ)
Winchester Cathedral Ch/Andrew Lumsden rec. 2018 HYPERION CDA68255 [70:03]
[SB] Even if you already have discs of Tavener’s choral music you should consider this.
Michael Fabiano (tenor)Arias by Verdi & Donizetti
London PO/Enrique Mazzola rec. 2018 PENTATONE PTC5186750 SACD [57:03]
[GF] I’m certainly looking forward to hearing more of Michael Fabiano.
