  1. Carlo Maria Giulini (2 CDs)
    Legacy

    Carlo Maria Giulini (2 CDs)

    £ 14.99

    Carlo Maria Giulini was without question, along with fellow Italians Arturo Toscanini, Victor de Sabata and Guido Cantelli, one of the greatest conductors of his generation. His opera performances at Covent Garden were landmarks for the Company. This 1960 performance of Rossini's sparkling Il barbiere di Siviglia features a stellar cast including a youthful Teresa Berganza as Rosina and Luigi Alva as The Count (who had been asked by Giulini immediately after his 1955 debut at La Scala, Milan, to sing the Count in a legendary La Scala production headed by Maria Callas and Tito Gobbi). This was his Covent Garden debut. The baritone Rolando Panerai as Figaro had been a stalwart of La Scala since 1951, while Fernando Corena as Dr Bartolo was making his Covent Garden debut but was already a major international figure. He had sung regularly at the Metropolitan Opera since 1954. More details

    Great Choral Classics (5 CDs)

    £ 24.99

    This special collection brings together thrilling performances of four choral masterpieces under the baton of four legendary conductors: Steinberg’s nuanced and expressive account of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, the electrifying drama of Verdi’s and Berlioz’s Requiems brought to the fore by Markevitch and Mitropoulos, and a magisterial live BBC Proms performance of Mahler’s Das klagende Lied conducted by Rozhdestvensky. These recordings won wide critical acclaim on their first release: Gramophone hailed Mitropoulous’s Berlioz as ‘remarkable’, while The Guardian declared Markevitch’s Verdi Requiem to be ‘one of the great interpretations’.

  4. Igor Markevitch (2 CDs)
    Legacy

    Igor Markevitch (2 CDs)

    £ 14.99

    Having performed and recorded extensively with prestigious orchestras worldwide, Igor Markevitch returned to Russia in 1960 at the height of his powers, where he made a great impression on the musical elite. He performed this dramatic account of the Verdi Requiem featuring the young Galina Vishnevskaya with the Moscow Philharmonic, in a rare live recording which preceded the studio version, now out of print. The spontaneity of the live recording is unmistakable. The six Rossini Overtures, all brilliantly played, have been sourced from a mint LP to give extra bloom to the sound. More details
