Maurice Ravel Piano Trio in A minor (Transcription for orchestra by Yan Tortelier)Ulster Orchestra Yan Pascal Tortelier
"This program sounds like some kind of impressionist version of the four seasons. While the Debussy pieces seem to be located on the springlike, summery side, the Ravel piece fits the latter half of the year. Speaking of which: the trascription by Tortelier is excellent. It captures the essence of the original trio magnificently and transforms it into a piece that can very well stand its ground besides such masterpieces as La Mer. This is a very, very nice CD."
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.
