BELLINI, V.: Bianca e Gernando [Opera] (Dalla Benetta, Mironov, Dall'Amico, Prato, Poznań Camerata Bach Choir, Virtuosi Brunensis, Fogliani)

Vincenzo Bellini was among the most important Italian opera composers of the early 19th century, and the quintessential representative of its bel canto tradition. Despite his enduring renown, his official operatic début Bianca e Gernando was known only in its revised version of Bianca e Fernando until this rediscovery and revival at Bad Wildbad in July 2016. Set in the ducal palace of Agrigento and with its tale of secretive plots and triumph over tyranny, this original version of the opera presents both unknown music and significant differences from the revised version, giving its dramatic shape a distinctive new character.
