ROSSINI EDITION

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of Gioacchino Rossini on 13 November
The Rossini Edition is the most comprehensive edition devoted to Rossini ever produced

Performing edition by Claudio Scimone, including additional material composed by Rossini for Vienna
Polidoro José García / Zelmira Cecilia Gasdia / Ilo William Matteuzzi / Antenore Chris Merritt / Emma Bernarda Fink / Leucippo Boaz Senator / Eacide Vernon Midgley Gran Sacerdote di Giove Leslie FysonBorn in 1792, Rossini was the most popular opera composer of his time. Although he retired from the Opera scene in 1829, he continued to compose in other genres, including sacred music, piano and chamber works. He did gather his late works under the ironic title “Péchés de vieillesse” (Sins of Old Age), which veils a true collection of masterworks.

It includes

• 13 complete operas including well-known as well as absolute rarities
• The Rossini Gala, the legendary “all stars” concert which was given at the Lincoln Center, New York, for the bi-centenary of Rossini in 1992
• 5 complete recitals, including the recent recording Joyce DiDonato or the 2 rare but very sought after recitals by Rockwell Blake.
• A very nice collection of overtures and opera arias
• 3 sacred works
• Clarinet, chamber and piano works among other rarities

A dazzling cast list of the best artists in this repertoire throughout record history

• Maria Callas, Cecilia Bartoli, Joyce DiDonato, Beverly Sills, Montserrat Caballé, Anna Netrebko, Marilyn Horne, Christa Ludwig…
• Nicolai Gedda, Ruggero Raimondi, Gabriel Bacquier, Rockwell Blake, Thomas Hampson, Chris Merritt…
• Conductors include Antonio Pappano, Claudio Scimone, Carlo Maria Giulini…
