Two of today’s most brilliant tenors celebrate the art of the trailblazing star singers of Rossini’s time in Amici e Rivali, "Friends and Rivals". Discover: https://w.lnk.to/aerLY

The program of the album consists of arias, duets, and trios from seven of the composer’s operas, written between 1815 and 1826: the most famous comic opera of them all, Il barbiere di Siviglia, and six serious dramatic works Otello, Armida, La donna del lago, Elisabetta, regina d'Inghilterra, Le Siège de Corinthe, and, the rarest title here, Ricciardo e Zoraide.

If the spotlight is on the two American stars – not least as they assume the roles of ‘duelling tenors’ – they are in excellent company: there are guest appearances from the effervescent Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught and the prize-winning young Spanish tenor Xabier Anduaga, and the recording was made at the artistic home of conductor Corrado Rovaris and I Virtuosi Italiani, the Teatro Ristori in Verona.
