The Flagello brothers combined their remarkable musical talents to create the unique artistic synergy of these recordings. Ezio's career flourished at the Metropolitan Opera and abroad, and composer Nicolas made good use of his rich bass-baritone voice in luxuriant settings of Tennyson's verses in The Land, here partnered with Leopardi's L'Infinito, a gloomy expression of humility and awe in the face of the Infinite. The texts used in the Passion of Martin Luther King emphasize faith, endurance and brotherly love, and this previously unissued premiere recording restores the moving original version of the work, with Dr King's"Dream" re-asserted through Ezio Flagello's towering performance as soloist.
