Saverio Mercadante - I Briganti A highly regarded composer in his day and considered the equal of Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, Saverio Mercadante pioneered the transformation of bel canto opera into real music drama. He wrote the operatic tragedy I Briganti (The Brigands) not only to prove himself to the Parisian public but as a direct challenge to Bellini's I Puritani, premiered the previous year. more info

Missa Solemnis - London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Georg Solti Recorded live at the BBC Proms in 1982, this concert was one of the highlights of Solti's final season as LPO Principal Conductor. This memorable performance was described by mezzo soprano Doris Soffel as the conductor's 'love-declaration to Beethoven'. The Missa Solemnis is one of Beethoven's great works from the height of his composing career - nothing he composed surpasses it for scale, sincerity or sheer vision. more info
