Massenet: Werther / Abel, Bocelli, Gertseva, et al

Album Summary

>Massenet, Jules : Werther
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording is performed by the orchestra and children's chorus of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna, conducted by Yves Abel, prestigious interpreter of the French repertoire. Andrea Bocelli portrays a virile, passionate Werther, far removed from icy virtuosities and dramatically condemned to his unhappy love. Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Julia Gertseva plays opposite Bocelli in the role of Charlotte.

Following his first three opera recordings, La Bohème,Tosca and Il Trovatore, superstar tenor Andrea Bocelli has now recorded Jules Massenet's most famous opera, Werther. A lyrical drama in four acts, with a libretto based on 'The young Werther's sufferings' by Goethe. The recording is performed by the orchestra and children's chorus of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna, conducted by Yves Abel, prestigious interpreter of the French repertoire. Decca. 2005.

The Sunday Telegraph
He has the voice of an operatic tenor and the status of a rock star
