Farnace was apparently one of Vivaldi's favorite operas, because he mounted numerous productions in various cities, and wrote six versions of the score, more than of any of his other operas. The conventions of operatic vocal characterizations that came to be standard – higher voices in the sympathetic roles, and lower voices in villainous roles – had not yet been established, and Farnace features a baritone and contralto in the heroic roles, with a soprano as the villain. Soprano Adriana Fernández shines as the wicked Berenice, who is redeemed at the very last minute. She has a full, creamy voice that she deploys appealing agility and warmth. As Tamira, contralto Sara Mingardo sings with power, authority, and deep feeling. In the title role, baritone Furio Zanasi is appropriately heroic, with a rich, refined timbre and the expressive depth to create sympathy for the conflicted protagonist, but he doesn't always have the necessary strength at the bottom of his range. One of his arias, the lyrical and poignant "Gelido in ogni vena," is among the composer's loveliest creations.

The repertoire choices here seem curiously conservative, considering the course of Jordi Savall's career in recent years. The answer to that conundrum lies in the date of recording – 1991. Back then, Savall was a much more mainstream kind of period performance performer, so a disc of Mozart's Requiem would have seemed like a logical choice for him, especially given that the year marked the bicentenary of the composer's death.

Max lavora nel catering da trent'anni ed è quasi alla fine del suo percorso lavorativo quando si ritrova a occuparsi del matrimonio di Pierre e Héléna in un castello del XVII secolo. Come al solito, ha organizzato tutto: ha reclutato la sua brigata di camerieri e cuochi, ha consigliato un fotografo, ha predisposto le decorazioni floreali e ha prenotato un'orchestra. Tuttavia, la notte dei preparativi potrebbe trasformarsi in un disastro a causa di una serie di imprevisti.

Although little known outside of his native Burkina Faso, Pierre Sandwidi was once one of the leading lights of the country's post-independence "Voltaic" musical movement. The travelling vocalist and musician was dubbed "the troubadour of the bush" and was seen as a man of the people thanks to his stated socialism and frequent criticism of the country's ruling elite. This fine collection gathers together the best of his work as a solo artist, offering up tracks recorded between 1976 and 80.
