We are thrilled to announce that world-class lyric soprano Lisette Oropesa has signed a 5-year exclusive contract with our company. Topping the list of projects to be released exclusively under the PENTATONE label, is her solo album debut: a recording of Mozart concert arias with the orchestral ensemble “il pomo d’oro”, conducted by Antonello Manacorda and recorded at the Himmelfahrtskirche in Munich, Germany.
In commemoration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday, SFCRC had planned to capture two live performances of the composer’s only opera Fidelio at the Kulturpalast Dresden this past April 2020. Due to the devastating complications of the COVID-19 pandemic, these performances had to be cancelled, and SFCRC was tasked with finding a more innovative way to realize the recording.
Just in time for Easter, SFCRC’s recording of Pietro Mascagni’s short opera Cavalleria rusticana was released on PENTATONE. Marek Janowski conducts the Dresdner Philharmonie, with soloists including Melody Moore, Lester Lynch, Brian Jagde, and Roxana Constantinescu.
