OTTORINO RESPIGHI: Trittico Botticelliano; Three Corali; The Pines of Rome – Beethoven Orchester Bonn/ Stefan Blunier – MD&G Live
The first SACD discing of the evocative chamber orchestra work based on three Botticelli paintings.
EUGEN D’ALBERT: Der Golem – Mark Morouse, baritone (the Golem) / Alfred Reiter, bass (Rabbi Loew) / Tansel Akzeybek, tenor (the Disciple) / Ingeborg Greiner, soprano (Lea) /Chorus of Theater Bonn / Beethoven Orchester Bonn / Stefan Blunier – MD&G (2)
This is an opera very much worth hearing, and the performances are pretty much on target. But the recording, especially given that it’s supposed to provide an audiophile experience, is lacking.
