Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Leading UK summer opera festival Garsington Opera releases its first commercial recording, the rare Rossini opera Maometto Secondo. Recorded live at the universally acclaimed 2013 performances - the first-ever fully staged production in the UK - this release coincides with the company's 25th anniversary celebrations. Set in the 15th century, Rossini's hugely ambitious undertaking depicts the Turkish Sultan Maometto's siege of the Venetian outpost of Negroponte, and his ultimate defeat. Lavishly packaged in a 100-page hardbound book, this outstanding release mirrors Garsington Opera's exceptional artistic standards presented in the spectacular Opera Pavilion, situated in an area of extraordinary natural beauty in the UK countryside.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2014
Sian Davies's Anna, Caitlin Hulcup's Calbo and Darren Jeffrey's Maometto supply vital vocalism. David Parry's stylish conducting provides momentum, though the open-air sound is so-so.

Opera Now
Paul Nilon is the utterly committed, luckless Venetian commander Erisso, Siân Davies radiant as his daughter Anna, Darren Jeffery a bluff Maometto and Caitlin Hulcup after an uncertain start becomes in some ways the most interesting person - character developed through sheer bel canto technique.

The Telegraph, 31st July 2014
Parry and his energetic orchestra keep everything going at a lick, and Caitlin Hulcup as Anna's Venetian fiancé, Darren Jeffery as the seductive Maometto and Paul Nilon as the pompous Venetian Doge all make sterling contributions. This is a rousing reading of a score that demonstrates the "serious" side of Rossini.

Financial Times, 26th July 2014
The opera's structure comes across with epic force thanks to David Parry's stylistically assured conducting...Sian Davies sings with temperament and consistency, not least in her ringing top notes... Darren Jeffery uses his warm bass to commanding effect.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
With David Parry wielding the baton, quality and authenticity are assured. Parry was the conductor of a whole raft of bel canto operas for Opera Rara. The Garsington Opera Orchestra is alive and well, responding with energy and spirit to Parry's direction. Jeffrey's Maometto is a sweet-sounding, even seductive fellow. Davies's heroic rendering of Anna is a tour-de-force in itself. Nilon gives us a right pompous Venetian Doge - quite a character. Mezzo-soprano Hutcup is a sturdy Calbo. The CDs are accompanied by an attractive 100-page hardbound book with historical essay, synopsis, and libretto in Italian with English translation.
