Notes & Reviews:

Mercadante and Pacini were, in the first place, very close contemporaries, born only five months apart. Both composers, though they may have begun as imitators of Rossini, in mid-career managed to break free and develop recognizable musical personalities of their own - styles in which they were able to pursue the depiction of the passions in ways that were increasingly unique to them. Six remarkable trios are the dominant feature of this album. Mercadante and Pacini excel in this operatic form through the strength and beauty of their vocal writing, which at the same time allows us to understand the conflicting emotions of the characters.
