Monteverdi: Coron Of Poppea

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
In November 1971, Dame Janet Baker - a great champion of opera sung in English - performed the title role in Monteverdi's The Coronation of Poppea with Sadler's Wells Opera at the London Coliseum, conducted by the baroque and classical specialist Raymond Leppard. This was the first time the company had produced the work and, happily, a performance was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3. This release of that broadcast has been remastered. Inevitably, the sound quality reflects the fact that it is a 1971 'live' recording, and some deterioration is evident, although this does not detract from the incomparable performance value. Chandos Opera in English is delighted to be able to allow listeners to experience the artistry of Dame Janet, at the height of her career, on this latest Archive Edition. Dame Janet Baker is joined by the bass Clifford Grant, tenors Robert Ferguson and John Brecknock, and mezzo-sopranos Anne Collins and Katherine Pring, as well as the Sadler's Wells Chorus and Orchestra.
