Image Aureliano in Palmira (3 CD)
"Set amidst turbulent times in the Roman Empire, Aureliano in Palmira is packed with sublime arias, duets of haunting beauty and excellent choruses. Rossini
himself considered this work as ‘divine music’ and, even after initial success, he re-used many of its melodies in later operas, most famously in Il barbiere di Siviglia."

Image Symphony No. 1; Métaboles; Les Citations

Image Symphony No. 13; Serenade

Image Agrippina (2 DVD)
During his years in Italy, Handel absorbed the music of his contemporaries and mastered new stylistic trends. Though the staging of La resurrezione was a memorable event in the Roman musical world, it was the production of Agrippina that marked Handel’s definitive investiture as an operatic composer. It met with enormous success and an unprecedented number of performances followed. Its melodic power is overwhelming and in his creation of credible and vivid characters, the alternation of recitative and arias, and sheer theatrical power, Handel established the template that was to last for the remainder of his operatic career.

Image Messiah
Of all English oratorios Handel’s Messiah has always been the most overwhelmingly popular. It is the least theatrical and the most purely sacred in its choice of subject matter. The vivid choral writing – there are more choruses in Messiah than in any other Handel oratorio – coupled with the expressive density of the solo arias, have ensured its status as one of the greatest choral masterpieces in the Western canon.

Image Magnificat
The Estonian composer Toivo Tulev has forged a unique sound world. His music, which often focuses on aspects of religious mysticism, is emotional and sensual but, as can be heard in Summer Rain, is intricately enigmatic behind its veneer of simplicity. The intensity of Tulev's Magnificat setting shows that he is one of contemporary music’s most compelling voices. Includes three world premiere recordings.

This penultimate volume in Alessandro Marangoni’s acclaimed traversal of Rossini’s complete piano music is vibrant with national colours from France, Italy and Spain, and rich in emotions of sadness and love, from the tragic Adieux à la vie! sung on a single note, to the sustained operatic embellishments of Questo palpito soave.
