VINCENZO BELLINI (1801-1835): Il pirata.
Catalogue Number: 06N042
Label: Opera Rara
Description: It's not often that Opera Rara does sort-of-standard repertoire but a quick look around shows that only a Berlin Classics version from 1995 is otherwise available (not counting mono, off-the-air recordings), so we thought we'd offer it for collectors of this label and its luxurious packaging and presentation. 3 CDs. Italian-English libretto. Carmen Giattanasio (soprano), Ludovic Tézier (baritone), José Bros, Mark Le Brocq (tenors), Brindley Sherratt (bass), Geoffrey Mitchell Choir, London Philharmonic Orchestra; David Parry.
