DESCRIPTION


Rolando Villazón, Ildar Abdrazakov, Yannick Nézet-Séguin Duets CD





Three exceptional artists join forces for an operatic treat! Star tenor Rolando Villazón, who was just named artistic director of Salzburg Mozart week, Ildar Abdrazakov, one of the most sought-after young basses in the operatic world (Vanity Fair), who is debuting on Deutsche Grammophon with this album, and the in-coming music director of the Metropolitan Opera Yannick Nézet-Séguin – a conductor full of vim and vigor – with Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal. Following Rolando’s and Yannick’s latest successful collaboration in DG’s Mozart opera cycle (Le Nozze di Figaro), this recording includes a wide range of beautiful French/Italian duets for tenor and bass presented with dedication and passion! Rolando and Ildar go back to 2009 when they first performed together in a production of "Lucia di Lammermoor" at the Met. They re-unite to sing a colorful variety of beautiful opera duets from nineteenth century drammi giocosi and opéras comiques, such as the beloved “Au fond du temple saint” from Les pêcheurs de perles (Bizet) or “Ah, quando fia… Se inclinassi a prender moglie” from L’italiana in Algeri (Rossini) as well as the duet “Je suis Escamillo” from Bizet’s famous opera Carmen.
