The new recording features an uncut edition including all the repetitions, original cadenzas and variations written by the singers, as well as the rarely performed finaletto.

In a statement Prima Classic, noted, “This relatively rarely performed opera stands out in the bel canto repertoire for its original musical resources applied by a young but undeniably genius Bellini, who was pushing the limits of the musical traditions of his time. Particularly original is the chorus of the Pirates with the echo effect: this genial page drew a clamorous success and was defined by a critic at La Scala ‘…a masterpiece of musical science.’”

“[Rebeka] displays a nimble coloratura from a voice that sits happily in the middle register but with a nice ripe top…A word of praise, too, for the villainous baritone Ernesto. Franco Vassallo eschews eyerolling melodrama in search of a character who is genuinely divided against himself.” (BBC Music Magazine)

Carried off by an intestinal perforation at the age of 33 in Puteaux, at the gates of Paris, this son of Catania is still greatly appreciated in his native city, where this new studio recording of Il pirata, Vincenzo Bellini’s first major opera, first performed at La Scala in Milan in 1827, was made. With this work, the young Sicilian author distanced himself from the Rossinian style then in vogue by giving free rein to his incomparable melodic verve.

Chopin’s unbounded admiration for Bellini is well known, and the melodic contours of his music ripple through the works of the Polish composer, who was not an admirer of too many other people. The Pirate is full of superb melodies, such as Imogene’s aria ‘Lo sognai ferito’ in the first act, Gualtiero’s cantilena ‘Pietosa al padre’ and the last scene of the work, whose instrumental introduction presages Norma’s famous ‘Casta diva’.

Recorded in the summer of 2020 at the Teatro Sangiorgi in Catania, a recently restored old Liberty style theatre, this new version, vigorously conducted by Fabrizio Maria Carminati at the head of the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania, is distinguished by its absolute completeness, with all the repeats, original cadenzas and variations written by the singers, and with its rarely performed Finale.

Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka reigns supreme over this recording released by Prima Classic, her own label. Alongside this immense bel canto, Javier Camarena was needed to overcome the extraordinary difficulties of a score that is not sparing of those vocal effects and top notes that can enchant an entire hall. A bel canto specialising in the works of Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, the Mexican tenor triumphs on the great stages of the world, especially at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where he is one of the very few singers to be recalled to the stage. – François Hudry
