Product description

Product Description

Il ritorno'd Ulisse is unquestionably one of the three pillars that place Monteverdi among the greatest of opera composers; this recording marks the premiere of a new performing version by Martin Pearlman.

Portuguese tenor and baroque specialist Fernando Guimarães stars in the title role,alongside the internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera as his loving wife Penelope.Il ritorno'd Ulisse was a relatively recent discovery, but following its authentication in the 1950s and revivals in Vienna and Glyndebourne, the opera has enjoyed new found popularity.

Martin Pearlman's new performing version benefits from the same attention to detail that has ensured his reputation as a leading champion of period performance. His highly considered approach to all aspects of the score and performance ensure this version is true to Monteverdi's original vision.With a libretto drawing from Homer's Odyssey, Il ritorno'd Ulisse is a riveting human drama with an enviable cast including: Abigail Nims (Melanto), Daniel Auchincloss (Eumaeus), Sonja DuToit Tengblad (Juno), Ulysses Thomas (Antinous), and Marc Molomot (Irus).

Review

Martin Pearlman has made his own edition of Monteverdi's penultimate opera, to my mind, a more emotionally wrenching piece than either Orfeo (1607) or L'incoronazione di Poppea (1643). The strength of this issue is in its strong youthful cast. The Penelope of Jennifer Rivera almost shakes my allegiance to Jacob's Bernadarda Fink... while Fernando Guimaraes's Ulysess is heartbreaking... --The Sunday Times

Jennifer Rivera deftly conveys the predicaments of the long suffering Penelope. The contrast between the kindly shepherd Eumete (Daniel Auchincloss) and the parasitical glutton Iro (Marc Molomot) is characterised vividly, and Arron Sheehan s more effortless tenor suits the youthful Telemaco... It is always a pleasure to become reacquainted with the most under-appreciated of Montiverdi's three extant operas. --Gramophone June 2015

The most impressive performance comes from Aaron Sheehan whose light lyrical voice delivers the music with utter naturalness. --BBC Music Magazine August 2015
