Donizetti: Les Martyrs / Bruson, Gencer
Label: ITALIAN OPERA RARITIES
Leyla Gencer, Renato Bruson, Ottavio Garaventa, Gianluigi Gelmetti
One of the only things rarer than something like Donizetti's Poliuto, is the French adaptation of the work he did for an 1839 revival after Naples had banned the Italian premiere. Le Martyrs is a rarity to say the least. This recording from La fenice in Venice features two powerhouse Donizetti singers of their time in Renato Bruson and Leyla Gencer. One copy in stock!
