About

Three exceptional artists join forces for an operatic treat! Star tenor Rolando Villazón, recently named artistic director of Salzburg Mozart week, Ildar Abdrazakov, one of the most sought-after young basses in the operatic world (Vanity Fair), who is debuting on Deutsche Grammophon with this album, and the incoming music director of the Metropolitan Opera, Yannick Nézet-Séguin – a conductor full of vim and vigor – with the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal.

Three charismatic musical personalities and absolute crowd pleasers from different parts of the world united in music.

Following Rolando’s and Yannick’s latest successful collaboration in DG’s Mozart opera cycle (Le nozze di Figaro), this recording includes a wide range of beautiful French/Italian duets for tenor and bass presented with dedication and passion!

Rolando and Ildar go back to 2009 when they first performed together in a production of Lucia di Lammermoor at the Met. They reunite to sing a colourful variety of beautiful opera duets from nineteenth-century drammi giocosi and opéras comiques, such as the beloved “Au fond du temple saint” from Les pêcheurs de perles (Bizet), as well as the duet “Je suis Escamillo” from Carmen.

Besides the renowned repertoire the artists also recorded two tracks with special arrangements referring to their personal life: the legendary Granada, standing for Rolando’s Latin heritage, and Ochi chernye as a tribute to Ildar’s home country Russia.
