Album Summary

>Gomes, Carlos : Salvator Rosa, opera
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

OehmsClassics presents a rarely performed work by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Gomes in co-production with NDR Kultur and the Braunschweig State Theatre. Gomes' music is influenced by Brazil, but its atmosphere is reminiscent of Verdi's "Simon Boccanegra" in many respects, captivating listeners at the start with extraordinarily effective pieces. This production is the recording of the German premiere at the Braunschweig State Theatre in January 2010.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
This performance - January 20, 2010 at Braunschweig - is infinitely superior. Wade sings a brilliant, ringing Rosa, so full of life, practically champing at the bits to thrill the audience. He is met full head on by the roaring passionate Isabella of Porubcinova. The chorus is a character in itys own right. It unleashes a torrent of sound every time the baton points at them. It's really exciting.
