CATALOGUE NO: distr. One for You
This recording made at a Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro is disappointing, for Jurowski’s account of the score is superficial and most of the singers find their roles too vocally demanding. The bast are Eldar Aliev, an imposing Pharaon, and Enkelejda Shkosa, a warm-voiced Marie. Charles Osborne
