DEL MONACO, SIMIONATO - NORMA - imperdível

From the RAI Radio 3 program called "La Barcaccia", conducted by Enrico Stinchelli and Michele Suozzo, here you are an excerpt of the so discussed 1958 Decca recording sessions of Bellini's "Norma" with Cerquetti, Simionato and del Monaco. It is said that the entire first act was recorded, however it was NEVER published in any format. Now, the Italian Decca, to remember the 25th anniversary of del Monaco's death, has released a 3 CD-set called "Il favoloso Mario del Monaco". In the third CD you may find Pollione's big entrance scene and the Act I duet by Adalgisa/Pollione from "Eccola, va mi lascia!". Unfortunately, no excerpt with Cerquetti was included.

Classical music, supposedly the purest of the arts, has always been a bit of a floozy. It intones Hallelujah choruses of praise to God, but is just as happy to supply Falstaff with a belchy drinking song. Throughout its history, it has been busily working as a pandar, facilitating seduction and extolling the delights of carnal gratification. Wagner composed an orgasm at the end of Tristan und Isolde (a climax complicated by the fact that one of the partners has just died). Strauss energetically orchestrated coitus in Der Rosenkavalier and Arabella

Wily and skeptical, she demands hard proof of her husband's identity before welcoming him back to their home and bed.
