trovatore like you've never heard it
on 18 August 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
It's been more than 6 months since I purchased this CD when there were no AMZ reviews available, but I'd heard outtakes on a German internet radio opera program, and was much impressed, and so bought it. Having heard it all, the recording still strikes me as amazing in several ways, one being that I am apparently the first to bother posting a review (and I rarely post any AMZ reviews). I've heard 'Can Belto' Trovatore renditions many times on audio and video recordings, and a few times live in opera houses including the biggest in the U.S. (i.e., the Met), but this is an honest to goodness Bel Canto rendition, probably closer I believe to what Verdi expected and heard at the time of its premier than anything to be found in big houses today. It's a concert performance by a 'period band' in a regional house, but the recording is fine and the audience properly respectful and enthusiastic. Besides the conductor and the orchestra, the stars are the Leonora Kermes and the Azucena Naef, the latter of whom delivers the required chest notes, a decent successor to the driven, divine Fiorenza Cossotto. But Kermes does things, probably as Verdi expected, with the soprano part that you will never hear in a big house. I don't mean to demean the males on the recording, they are quite listenable, my only personal complaint would be with the Count di Luna, just because his voice type is miscast, not nearly evil-deep enough, not because of any defects in his musicianship.

It may be to your taste...who am I to say? But I suggest you listen to the Miserere from this performance on YouTube before buying. Sounds like Kermes and Lippert are sleepwalking.
