Notes & Reviews:

'La Serenata' is the eleventh volume of Opera Rara's acclaimed 'Il Salotto' series, exploring the more intimate world of the salon ("salotto," in Italian) and here featuring such leading bel canto voices of today as Diana Montague, Bruce Ford, Majella Cullagh and Barry Banks. This latest selection takes its title from a setting by Ambroise Thomas and includes his most famous song, the enchanting 'Le soir', as well as other examples from the pens of Mercadante, Donizetti, Offenbach, Pacini and their lesser-known contemporaries. This disc is accompanied by an illustrated booklet with an introduction and notes to the songs by the distinguished writer, broadcaster and music journalist Patrick O'Connor.
