More Info:

Gioachino Rossini's opera "L'Italiana in Algeri" is one of the composer's best-known operas and has lost none of it's rousing freshness and energy since it's premiere in 1813. At the end of 2022, the young conductor Jakob Lehmann and his Eroica Berlin orchestra presented at the Delphi Theatre (Berlin) Rossini's music according to the latest knowledge of historical performance practice. "This creates a fresh, detailed, cooler, brilliant but also airy sound in comparison to conventional performances... The agogics and the pleasurable ritardandi, the portamenti and the short, dry staccati also show that the musicians have studied earlier practices in depth. The music is played here as we learn it from early 19th century sources." (Merkeronline) Mezzo-soprano Hannah Ludwig stands out from the international ensemble of young singers in the leading role. "As Isabella, she dazzles with a luminous tone that is also well blended in the lower register, has agility, but also the necessary dramatic impetus. A singer who is a pleasure." (Merkeronline)
