Notes & Reviews:

One of Rossini's rarest scores, the dramma serio Aureliano in Palmira was written during his miraculous 21st year (1813), when Rossini produced four operas in all. On the way to the opera's inevitable happy ending, there is plenty of extreme emotion to fire-up some exciting vocal writing. A great success in its day, Aureliano promises to thrill another generation of listeners in this new studio recording under Maurizio Benini. The set includes a lavishly illustrated book including a complete libretto with an English translation by Jeremy Commons and a synopsis by Richard Osborne.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The plot holds less fascination. It is the often-composed tale of the Roman emperor versus Zenobia the Queen of Palmira and her attempts to free her captured lover and ally, Arsace, Prince of Persia. Armies clash, lovers clash, all to some high-powered coloratura and foot-tapping tunes. It's a musical feast for the ear.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2013
Opera Rara's performance is a fine one, conducted with stylistic assurance by Maurizio Benini and sung by a good cast, able to rise above the music's considerable technical challenges to achieve real expressive distinction. In the title role, tenor Kenneth Tarver reminds us of his excellent Rossinian credentials, with a light and airy tone and fluent top register.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
The music is very fine, with a minimal amount of secco recitative...The LPO play beautifully for Maurizio Benini. Kenneth Tarver makes an accomplished Aurelian, a touch of steel in his tone emphasising his authority. In Zenobia's aria 'La pugnai', Catriona Smith colours her voice with both assertiveness and wistfulness before dazzling the listener with her coloratura.
