A Te, O Cara - Stephen Costello Sings Bel Canto
A Te, O Cara - Stephen Costello Sings
American tenor Stephen Costello's meteoric career has taken him to the stages of the world's top opera houses. In this, his first recording for Delos, he performs a glittering assortment of arias that will appeal strongly to any opera lover, but that will be a particular treat for fans of the bel canto repertoire. While it mainly showcases classic arias by Gaetano Donizetti, we also hear single selections by Vicenzo Bellini and Giuseppe Verdi. Polished and sensitive orchestral collaboration comes courtesy of Maestro Constantine Orbelian and his vaunted Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra. The Associated Press has called Stephen Costello ''… a prodigiously gifted singer whose voice makes an immediate impact.''

Momento Immobile - Bel Canto arias by Bellini,
Hailed as 'the new voice of Russia' and the star of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Venera Gimadieva has quickly become one of the most sought-after lyric coloratura sopranos in Europe. Her performances as Violetta in La Traviata have earned sensational reviews, with the Guardian describing her at her Glyndebourne Festival debut as, ''a soprano of huge presence, compelling to watch, with a voice of thrilling security and range, and a special quality to her quieter singing that makes you hang on every note.'' On her debut recording she performs a recital of bel canto arias by Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini.

Bel Canto Paganini
Billboard chart-topping violinist Rachel Barton Pine traverses Paganinis ground breaking set of 24 Caprices with virtuosic flair and, in equal measure, reverence for the bel canto, or beautiful singing,'' style of the composers generation. Playing on the ex-Bazzini, ex-Soldat Guarneri del Gesù violin from 1742, made by the same Cremona-based maker in the same year as Paganinis own violin, Rachel channels the composers own technical wizardry as well as his love for beautiful melodies. Rachel was first introduced to Paganinis Caprices at the age of six. In her early twenties she gave her first performance of all 24 Caprices in a single concert, a feat she has accomplished several times since including at the National Gallery in Washington D.C. and the Ravinia Festival. Rachel fills out this release with other pyrotechnical works by Paganini, including his Duet for One, Caprice dadieu and the Introduction and Variations on Nel cor più non mi sento from Giovanni Paisiellos opera La molinara. Inspired by Paganinis legacy of virtuosic themes and variations, Rachel concludes the set with her own Introduction, Theme and Variations on God Defend New Zealand, written in 2000 for the final concert of her first tour of that country. Paganini dedicated his 24 Caprices ''to all the artists. ...

Lundquist: Suites for
When Torbjorn Iwan Lundquist in 1962 was asked to compose the music score for the screen adaptation of Selma Lagerlofs Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige (Adventures of Nils Holgersson), he was already a well-known composer of film music. By 1954 he had written the scores for 16 films, and three other movies with his music were premiered the same year as Nils Holgersson. In 1962, Lundquist was engaged to compose the music for the grandiose and lavish Adventure of Nils Holgersson, an adaptation of Selma Lagerlofs novel, directed by Kenne Fant. It was to be a film in color with stunning aerial photographs of Sweden and with music by Lundquist. It was actually the first time a complete soundtrack in a Swedish film was released on LP. The Suite from this score is paired here with the Suites from Gosta Berlings saga as well as some additional movements which were used in radio dramas.

Going well beyond mere historical interest, this program features repertory that delighted Parisian concert halls and salons throughout the 19th century. It tells the story of how the viola, in the hands of great virtuosos, at last emerged from the violin's shadow. Violist Antoine Tamestit, making his first solo recording for harmonia mundi, is joined by pianist Cédric Tiberghien to bring these stunning pieces back to life.

Alfredo Campoli: The Bel Canto Violin - Volume 2
Alfredo Campoli: The Bel Canto Violin - Volume
One of the most significant violinists in gramophone history, Alfredo Campoli enjoyed tremendous success in the 1930s as a purveyor of light music, both in concerts with his own salon orchestra and on Decca. A series of six 2CD reissues from Eloquence focuses on the violinist's postwar reinvention of himself as 'Campoli', the classical soloist. This reinvention was much aided by a succession of Decca recordings made with some of the label's greatest conductors - Argenta, Boult, Krips - and critically praised at the time for bringing to serious repertoire the impeccable technique, warmth of tone and long, legato phrasing that had made Campoli so stylish a player of salon music. For many music-lovers of the 1950s, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto was almost synonymous with the name of Campoli. The concerto appeared on his programs more than any other work, from the time of his debut in 1923 to his final major appearance at the age of 74 when the critic of The Strad remarked that this 950th performance sounded both 'fresh and mature'. Accordingly, he made two recordings: firstly with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Eduard van Beinum in 1949, shortly after Decca had announced it's technological breakthrough known as 'Full Frequency Range Reproduction'. The second recording came ...

Alfredo Campoli: The Bel Canto Violin - Volume
One of the most significant violinists in gramophone history, Alfredo Campoli enjoyed tremendous success in the 1930s as a purveyor of light music, both in concerts with his own salon orchestra and on Decca. A series of six 2CD reissues from Eloquence focuses on the violinist's postwar reinvention of himself as 'Campoli', the classical soloist. When Campoli made this recording of Tchaikovsky's Concerto at the very end of 1956, he had lately returned from a tour of the Soviet Union which had been facilitated by the temporary thaw in Cold War relations. Also on the tour, Gerald Moore later recalled that in Russia, Campoli had been spoken about in the same breath as Oistrakh. In stereo and in partnership with the Spanish conductor Ataulfo Argenta, the Tchaikovsky sessions catch the violinist on masterful form, imbuing the concerto with every shade of subtle rubato. Campoli is hand in glove with several other Decca house conductors on four more complete long-play and medium-play discs featuring concertante bow- and showstoppers: there is the sophisticated playfulness of the Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso by Saint-Saëns, his habanera-like Havanaise leading smoothly into the gypsy fire of Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen, the gymnastics of Lalo's Symphonie espagnole and the melodic compo...
