Description

On Stella di Napoli (Star of Naples), Joyce DiDonato's creamy tone and dramatic prowess breathe new life into little-known arias by Mercadante, Michele Carafa (a student of Cherubini and close friend of Rossini), Carlo Valentini and the prolific opera composer Giovanni Pacini, whose Stella di Napoli (1845) gives the album its title. Joyce worked closely with Italian conductor Riccardo Minasi to bring three unjustly neglected arias to light in new editions and world premiere recordings. Alongside these little-known gems, Joyce presents a sumptuous Bel Canto banquet with music by the three greats — Bellini, Rossini and Donizetti — including the latter’s Maria Stuarda: a tour-de-force signature role for Joyce.

 

1. Pacini: Stella di Napoli -  Ove t'aggiri, o barbaro

2. Bellini: Adelson e Salvini - Dopo l'oscuro nembo

3. Carafa: Le nozze di Lammermoor - Oh, di sorte crudel 

4. Rossini: Zelmira - Riedi al soglio

7. Bellini: I Capuleti e i Montecchi - Deh! tu, bell'anima

8. Valentini: Il sonnambulo - Se il mar sommesso mormora
