Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The so-called Rossini Renaissance (post-WWII) was an outright revolution, as it led to the rediscovery and staging of a great number of Rossini operas, especially of the serious genre. Otello, one of the finest of Rossini's serious works, marked one of the first encounters in the history of Italian opera between a composer and Shakespeare's theatre. Although Rossini later revised the ending away from its fateful, tragic outcome, this production, recorded live in 2014 at Antwerp's Vlaanderen Opera, is based on the Rossini Foundation's critical edition and has the first, tragic finale.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Rossini's four tenors enter en masse and it's easy to distinguish who is singing what. Heirman's Doge is the least distinguished. Mironov upholds the tenor's honor. He is a sweet-voiced singer with the goods to get through the coloratura hurdles. Kunde is the darkest voice of the four. There is solidity and flexibility to his voice. The ladies blend dulcetly, making their Act 1 duet a highlight of the performance. Cheers for the solo horn obbligato that introduces the duet. Wagner's Elmiro is a nondescript fellow, adequate enough. The orchestra plays with enthusiasm and precision under Rossini-expert Zedda.
