Wolf-Ferrari: Susanna's Secret
£2.50 P&P (per order)
A live recording from the 2008 Liverpool Philharmonic Hall performance by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Vasily Petrenko and singers from the European Opera Centre.
"A worthwhile and rare oddity from a composer rarely heard from." **** Audiophile Audition
“[T]his addictive entertainment was as much a showcase for Vasily Petrenko and the Liverpool Phil as it was for Canturri's incisive, handsome baritone, Rodrigues's smooth, well-focused soprano, and Loïc Varraut's neat, Begnini-esque physical comedy as the silent servant. Petrenko has had an extraordinary impact on this orchestra and conducts with authority and elan.”
Anna Picard, The Independent (review of live performance)
"Rodrigues's soprano isn't the most dulcet instrument, but it has a citrusy tang that conveys an excitable temperament and a quick wit. Canturri, commendably, stays right in character, never overplaying for comedic effect"
