Product Description


technical comment


  • Sir Colin Davis' eagerly anticipated recording of Verdi's Otello is released on the 10th anniversary of the LSO Live label. Opera has always formed an important part of the label's output. Among Sir Colin Davis' greatest triumphs on LSO Live have been his award-winning recordings of Berlioz and Verdi's final opera, Falstaff. Falstaff was released in 2004 and won a GRAMMY® Award for Best Opera. For the title role, Davis is joined by one of the world's most exciting young tenors. New Zealander Simon O'Neill stepped in at short notice, making his debut in the role, delivering what can only be described as an astonishing performance. The villainous Iago is played by Gerald Finley and Otello's wife Desdemona by Anne Schwanewilms. Otello, which was premiered in 1887, marked a significant evolutionary development in Italian opera and is widely regarded as one of the great operatic masterpieces.
