L’Oiseau de Feu // L'uccello di fuoco Conte dansé en deux tableaux, versione del 1910
Chant du Rossignol // Il canto dell'usignolo Poème symphonique pour orchestre (1917)
Flemish Radio Orchestra Yoel Levi
"A sonic spectacular – that must be heard to be believed. This striking SACD provides remarkably high-calibre recordings: both works sound pretty marvellous played back through normal CD equipment. But if you have a good four-speaker system and set the rear volume level gently and judiciously, the sound is almost unbelievably realistic. Indeed, this Flemish performance of The Firebird is one of the finest orchestral recordings I have heard. Moreover, the music is miraculously well played."
A collection focusing on historical singers in rare recordings - mostly in the form of “portrayals”. The singers featured here are the ones who have made opera legendary. Hence the name “Il Mito dell’Opera” - “Legendary Opera”
This series features rarely performed operas, symphonic music and chamber works. Many of these recordings were world première recordings. Hence the title “Novità del Passato” – they are all “News from the Past”.
This series offers complete recordings - always live, and always from the golden age. It is, obviously, the continuation of our series “The Golden Age of Opera” which has been very popular among aficionados.
