Bellini: I Capuleti E I Montecchi (live)
RINALDI ARAGALL PAVAROTTI ZACCARIA MONACHIESE HAGUE PHILHARMONIC TEATRO COMUNALE DI BOLOGNA CHORUS ABBADO, GIACOMO ARAGALL
For this record of 1966 we can easily use the word “legendary” for defining it with Claudio Abbado as conductor, Giacomo Aragll in the role of Romeo, and Luciano Pavarotti in the role of Tebaldo. This performance seems a competition of talents with the result of giving a new life to the one of the most complete and beautiful sheet music by Bellini. I Capuleti e i Montecchi must be rightly included among the greatest masterpieces of romantic italian melodramma of the the first half of XIX century this exceptional opera is not considered as it worth only by a musical critic submitted by to the german canons. The role of Romeo was composed for “en travesti “ soprano and nowadays is normal that this opera has been successfully performed in the original version with a unique poetry and refinement for the role of Romeo performed by a young Argall. Pavarotti e la Rinaldi are not less as Tebaldo and Juliet. This is do not miss double CD for all opera lovers.
