As Verdi was entering his glorious "late period" (Otello and Falstaff) he wrote and re-worked much of Simon Boccanegra, a work that he had first tackled in 1857. The opera emerged in 1881 as a powerful masterpiece, although one that has been unfairly neglected, in comparison with Verdi's other works on that level. So it's high time for an authoritative new release of an opera that gives glamorous title star Dmitri Hvorostovsky - considered by many to be the world's greatest Verdi baritone - the chance to record what he calls " of the most complex, deepest characters in the whole baritone repertoire."

Hvorostovsky goes on to say that, in a special introduction he wrote for this album, among his favourite scenes in the opera is the Council Chamber scene: "Simon's address to the people, 'Plebe! Patrizi! Popolo!' is the creed of a great statesman. As he cries for peace and love, the whole crowd is swept along by the same surge of passion!"
