Rivaled only by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Neville Marriner was one of the most important of the early figures who spearheaded the reawakening of modern interest in Baroque and early Classical music.

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Rossini's La donna del lago ("The Lady of the Lake") is a lush, positively verdant dramatic opera, first performed in 1819, that deserves to be better known. Derived from Sir Walter Scott's famous poem, the story concerns love both unrequited and requited amid rebellious Scottish clans, as the titular lady is wooed by two rivals while her heart is pledged to another. Given Rossini's luxuriant orchestration and emphasis on romance, one can't help feeling that the composer had the hills of Tuscany more in mind than the rugged Scottish highlands. A succession of highly charged scenas contrast with languid melodies, such as Ellen's delightful introductory "Oh mattutini albori", making this a less bloodily melodramatic companion-piece to Donizetti's Scott-inspired Lucia di Lammermoor.

This recording from Milan's La Scala was made at a live performance in 1992, though the fact is hardly evident and certainly not obtrusive (there is very little audience distraction, with applause only at the end of acts). Riccardo Muti conducts a more robust reading than Maurizio Pollini's previous studio recording (on Sony). His soloists--led by June Anderson and Rockwell Blake--tackle the extreme vocal demands of the score with evident gusto, though sometimes with less subtlety than would be evident in the studio. The result is a recording that deserves a strong recommendation on its own merits. Given both the paucity of alternative recommendations and the attractive budget price, it becomes an essential must-have. Sadly it lacks a full libretto--the only disappointment. --Mark Walker

The Best Version Available 1 May 2009
By Britt Le Bonzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The singers on this are far better than those on the newer Naxxos version. The only real weakness here is the sound, which is somewhat distant. I recommend that you buy this one and turn the volume up slightly. The Naxxos live version features weaker, less refined tenors and the lead soprano is replaced by a mezzo whose voice is not nearly as flexible and pretty as June Anderson's.
