Play on Rhapsody
Released:
Label: New York Philharmonic
Here's a clutch recording of a rarely performed work by Italian modernist Luigi Dallapiccola. Though it tells the story of a doomed prisoner during the Spanish Inquisition, the grimness is also shot through some of the most lyrical atonal writing you're ever likely to hear. Conducted by Alan Gilbert, the Philharmonic brings out the climaxes of piercing power in the music, but also its more tender subtleties, with help from a cast that includes baritone Gerald Finley in the title role. Seek out the text, attached to a Rhapsody blog post, and follow along to a truly great opera recording.
