Description: The second Cagnoni release from this label in seven months is his last completed opera from the year of his death and never performed. " that has its starting point in the past, the 1840s, with the dramatic elegance of Donizetti and the strong dramatic accents of Verdi, linked to present-day Wagnerian chromaticism, a blend of the subtle French harmonic of a Gounod and a Massenet and dashes of verismo and Pucciman sentiment. In its own right, Re Lear thus becomes the swan-song of Italian 19th century opera!" - Anders Wiklund, Donizetti Society newsletter. 2 CDs. Libretto and translation available on-line. Costantino Finucci (baritone), Danilo Formaggia (tenor), Serena Daolio (soprano), Eufemia Tufano (mezzo), Slovak Chamber Choir, Orchestra Internazional d'Italia; Massimiliano Caldi.
