Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

After leaving conservatory in 1854, Filippo Marchetti (1831-1902) immediately set to work composing for the theater. After three successful opera stagings in fifteen years, true, lasting success was finally achieved in 1869 in collaboration with librettist Carlo D’Ormeville and Victor Hugo’s play, Ruy Blas. It was performed in all of Italy’s large and small theaters. During the composer’s lifetime, it reached the most distant shores of five continents, becoming popular in the UK and especially in the US. This 1998 performance, on Bongiovanni, is its first commercial recording.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The Jesi performance is quite a powerhouse. Malagnini has plenty of squillo, strength galore. Theodossiou catches the melancholy of the queen's music to perfection. Hers is unique. She is a bel canto artist of fine musical taste. Gazale sings in a grand manner: solid, imposing, dramatic. As the rather grafted-onto-the-plot lady-in-waiting, Casilda, Marini's mezzo has a lovely sound. The orchestra (Filarmonica Marchigiana) plays well, with style under Lipton's loving care.

The recording claims to be the first performance in modern times, September 27 & 29, 1998 at the Teatro Pergolesi in Jesi. But the New York Times (May 28, 1984) published a review by Will Crutchfield of performances by the Bel Canto Opera Company. He praises the work.
