Product Notes

Paired here are two of Rossini's best-loved operas in stunning Glyndebourne stagings showcasing the composer's threefold genius for comic storytelling, musical energy and vocal fireworks. Vladimir Jurowski and Sir Peter Hall unite for a fresh and vibrant yet timelessly elegant production of Rossini's setting of the Cinderella story, with a fine cast led by Ruxandra Donose in the title role. While the magical, boldly theatrical world that Annabel Arden creates for the amorous plots and intrigues of young Figaro's Seville bustles with a gifted ensemble of singer-actors and merry mischief from the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Enrique Mazzola. Recorded in true SS. 'This is a truly marvellous performance on all counts - staging, conducting and singing... The sense of an ensemble on top form is underlined by Vladimir Jurowski's exacting, pellucid and vivid interpretation, so that the music, like the libretto, is presented afresh. The superb cast has no weaknesses and many strengths... ' (Gramophone) '... conductor Enrique Mazzola gets Rossini's music to sizzle. No slouching, no lingering here and there - just razor-sharp playing from the London Philharmonic Orchestra at helter-skelter speeds.' (The Financial Times)
