Notes & Reviews:

This all-new album presents Leoncavallo's 'La Nuit de Mai', a symphonic poem for orchestra and tenor by a composer largely associated with opera. Leoncavallo is best known for his opera, 'Pagliacci', and he brings a similar verismo style of composition to this little-known work from 1886. Placido Domingo brings this wonderful rarity to life with conductor Alberto Veronesi and the Orchestra del Teatro Comunale di Bologna. The two artists are no strangers to rare Italian operatic works - they first collaborated on a Deutsche Grammophon recording of Puccini's Edgar. The remainder of the album is filled with a selection of to date unknown songs, also by Leoncavallo. Domingo is joined by piano superstar Lang Lang in these selections, the pianist's first recorded collaboration with a singer.

"Most of Leoncavallo's post-Pagliacci operas remain either unrecorded or inadequately recorded. Even more neglected are his non-operatic compositions. This brilliant new recording lets us take a peek at the world of these Leoncavallo rarities...Lang Lang displays his own talents in two solo pieces, the charming 'Barcarola Veneziana' and 'Valse Mignonne.' The indefatigable Domingo is in fine voice, with a dark, baritonal coloring. His French is reasonable. Texts and translations are included."-ARG
