Description: Marcolini was the contralto who inspired Rossini to create his innovative brand of comic operas, beginning with L'equivoco stravagante in 1811. This recital offers the opportunity to put Rossini in his context: all the rest of the arias excerpted here date from 1810-15, many requiring up to six other vocalists and most having attractive parts for obbligato wind instruments and, in one case, cello. * - World Premiere Recordings. Italian-English texts. Ann Hallenberg (soprano), SSO Chamber Choir, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra; Fabio Bondi.
