About

Great Operatic Arias Vol.19

Over a long and still flourishing career Sir Thomas Allen has given benchmark performances in several operatic roles of which Mozart and Verdi operas figure strongly. With two spicy exceptions, every item in this programme comes from an opera by Mozart or Verdi. Part of the design of this recital series is to highlight the particular type of voice and explore its repertoire. The works chosen for this disc provide a unique showcase of Sir Thomas Allenís unique gifts and that of the baritone in general.

As in previous issues, the solos are interspersed with longer excerpts, duets and ensembles, including performances with Susan Gritton and Claire Rutter. With Fordís monologue in Falstaff, Sir Thomas extends his lyrical voice to encompass the more theatrical style of late Verdi and in the lighter Weill ĎSeptember Songí, he extends it further, albeit in a different direction altogether. Other repertoire includes an aria from Meyerbeerís Dinorah, recitatives and arias from Verdiís Macbeth and La Traviata, arias from Mozartís Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, and duets from The Magic Flute.

Also available: Volume 1: CHAN 3118
