The Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini, which has been devoting itself to the research and performance of Pergolesi‘s music for years now, had his operas recorded live at the annual Music Festival in Jesi. Released on this BD are two productions from Jesi of one almost forgotten opera, Il prigionier superbo, and one of Pergolesi’s most popular works, La serva padrona, combined like they were at the original premiere.

Il Prigionier Superbo is a three-act opera seria with six characters — two kings, two princes, two princesses. La Serva Padrona is a two-part comic intermezzo with two singing characters — master and servant. It was performed between Prigionier's acts when they bowed in 1733, as Naples theaters reopened after earthquake-forced closure. Prigionier vanished from the stage, but Serva Padrona grew popular, helped establish opera buffaand helped start a pamphlet war between Italian and French opera supporters in Paris… MARK MANDEL

The characters move in a musical setting which is perhaps less revolutionary than Pergolesi's had been, the scenic action moves at a slower pace, with longer arias. Pergolesi's means are certainly more limited than Paisiello's, his vocal styles more essential and specific — his Uberto is more desperate and his Serpina craftier, while in Paisiello's opera the characters take on a more worldly and fugy-rounded form. In Paisiello's work Uberto and Serpina sing with greater awareness of the fact that they are actors in an institutionalised theatre, and their arias could at times belong to a different text, as for example the splendid 'Donne Vaghe' with which Serpina opens the second act or the delightful duet 'Donne infeste', whose music sounds more like an act of love than the celebration of deep disagreement. These two episodes, whose pertinence to the development of the plot is quite questionable, do not appear in Pergolesi's text.

This is an excellent and varied selection of composers from the very well known like Palestrina, Monteverdi, Bach and Vivaldi, through the less famous but familiar like Frescobaldi, Sainte-Colombe and Zelenka, to the downright obscure. It is all delightful: the musicians are uniformly excellent, and include such great names as Gustav Leonhardt, Cantus Colln, Christopher Hogwood and so on. They give fine performances both of the familiar works and of the less familiar ones.

Nella provincia del Capo di Buona Speranza, Grootmoedersdrift non è certo una fattoria modello quando, negli anni Cinquanta, Jak de Wet vi mette per la prima volta piede per chiedere la mano di Milla Redelinghuys. Tutte le speranze e i sogni di gloria della giovane sono riposti in Jak. È ricco, istruito, attraente, spiritoso. Bastano pochi anni di matrimonio, però, perché Milla si renda conto che Jak non può fare di Grootmoedersdrift quello che generazioni di Redelinghuys hanno desiderato. Ha le mani morbide, è stato educato per diventare un gentiluomo non un agricoltore. Inoltre, è un afrikaner che non sopporta gli hotnot, i "negri"…

One of the brightest stars in the 20th-century operatic firmament, the Pennsylvania-born soprano Anna Moffo (1932–2006) enjoyed a meteoric rise in the 1950s and 1960s that saw her conquer all the major opera houses in Europe and America. After making her Metropolitan Opera début in 1959 as Violetta in La traviata, she went on to appear with the company in 200 performances of 21 roles over a total of 18 seasons, before finally singing her last complete performance – once again as Verdi’s Violetta – and retiring from the stage in 1976. Specially released to mark the 10th anniversary of Anna Moffo’s death, Sony Classical releases for the first time, newly mastered from the original analogue tapes using 24bit/96kHz technology.

Luisa de la Cueva nasce negli anni Trenta in un piccolo villaggio sull'isola caraibica di San Pedro, dove trascorre la sua infanzia. Dopo i primi anni passati nella piantagione di canna da zucchero dove sua madre è a servizio, si troverà poco più che adolescente ad abbandonare il conforto di una vita genuina per seguire i sogni di ricchezza e prosperità che New York simboleggia per la sua famiglia. Ma una volta lì i de la Cueva sono costretti ad abitare tra scantinati e squallidi appartamenti e la società americana con le sue spietate regole si rivela così lontana dall'umanità e dal senso di solidarietà che regnavano a San Pedro…. Un ritratto della società americana della metà del secolo scorso, che svela tutti i tesori che si nascondono nei diseredati.
