ICMA – International Classical Music Awards announces:
This recording of Bellini’s Il Pirata, comes from where the opera is set: Sicily. With his light, supple and still very youthful voice, Javier Camarena is an ideal interpreter of the title role. Marina Rebeka interprets Imogene expressively and with dramatic impetus. With his rich baritone, Franco Vassallo is a very impressive Ernesto. All the other roles are well cast, and there are also good performances from the orchestra and chorus of the Teatro Massimo Bellini that all add up to make this recording a real treat.
