Libretto

ROSSINI, G.: Zelmira [Opera] (S. Dalla Benetta, J. Stewart, Comparato, Górecki Chamber Choir, Virtuosi Brunensis, Gelmetti)

Zelmira was the last opera Rossini wrote for Naples, knowing it would also be his calling card to Vienna where he had been assured performances. Keen to reconcile the alleged incompatibility between ‘Italian’ melody and ‘German’ harmony, Rossini employed exciting and daring harmonies and a raft of dazzling orchestral effects in this tragedy in which a daughter saves her father, the king, and her son, from usurpers to the throne. The opera was acclaimed wherever it was heard, and this recording presents the revised and triumphant Paris version.
