Review By James Inverne,Gramophone,August 2011

A second pick this month for Mark Elder. And if this is anything to go by, his artistic directorship of Opera Rara should be a real treat. He is sure-footed throughout this great, if relatively little-known, work—with a propulsive power that grips to the end. There’s a lot of Donizetti that isn’t really worth excavating, but this is. Now can we have a staged production please?

Review By Richard Lawrence ,Gramophone,August 2011

Linda di Chamounix came towards the end of Donizetti’s composing career. It was first performed in May 1842 at the Kärntnertortheater in Vienna, where Donizetti had been appointed musical director of the Italian opera season. The cast included the tenor Napoleone Moriani: he is still of interest today as the father of at least one of the three illegitimate children of Giuseppina Strepponi, who was to become Verdi’s mistress and second wife.
