Product Description & Reviews

Right from the first few bars of this live recording, you know you are going to meet the Dirty Don in quite a new guise: the ominous opening bass notes are cut short, the tempo is astonishingly quick, there are surprising sforzandi (sudden sharp attacks), and everything feels urgent and breathless. Some people find the young conductor Daniel Harding too mannered, too eager to make a statement, but to this reviewer his unflagging energy and musical inventiveness are absolutely captivating. Everything is at the service of the drama, of communicating the emotions and the plot in the most effective manner possible. Just occasionally one wishes for him to linger a little longer over a phrase or dwell on an emotional statement, but the flip side of his speedy tempi is that the dramatic tension never lets up. The gifted young singers all palpably communicate their excitement at being part of this project, and operate with dramatic flair as an ensemble. A highlight? That would have to be Peter Mattei's meltingly erotic rendition of "Deh vieni alla finestra," which really has to be heard to be believed. --Warwick Thompson
