Rolando Villazón: Verdi Arias
Deutsche Grammophon B0017283-02
Verdi: I due Foscari: Qui ti rimani alquanto…Odio solo, ed odio atroce (7:39)
Rolando Villazón, tenor; Torino Teatro Regio Orchestra / Gianandrea Noseda
Villazón offers a personal selection of Verdi arias and songs that takes us on a musical journey from Verdi’s earliest compositions (1838) to the very last he wrote for the tenor voice: the beautiful aria from Falstaff, “Dal labbro il canto estasiato vola” (1893). The album features universal favorites alongside less familiar gems from across Verdi’s operatic output.
