Info for Bellini: Il Pirata

The new recording features an uncut edition including all the repetitions, original cadenzas and variations written by the singers, as well as the rarely performed finaletto.

In a statement Prima Classic, noted, “This relatively rarely performed opera stands out in the bel canto repertoire for its original musical resources applied by a young but undeniably genius Bellini, who was pushing the limits of the musical traditions of his time. Particularly original is the chorus of the Pirates with the echo effect: this genial page drew a clamorous success and was defined by a critic at La Scala ‘…a masterpiece of musical science.'”

"[Rebeka] displays a nimble coloratura from a voice that sits happily in the middle register but with a nice ripe top...A word of praise, too, for the villainous baritone Ernesto. Franco Vassallo eschews eyerolling melodrama in search of a character who is genuinely divided against himself." (BBC Music Magazine)

Fabrizio Maria Carminati, conductor

Fabrizio Maria Carminati
Having graduated in piano under the guidance of Carlo Pestalozza, Fabrizio Maria Carminati continued his composition studies in Milan with Vittorio Fellegara, and subsequently graduated with top marks as orchestra conductor.

In 1993, he debuted as conductor with La Boheme, at the Teatro Regio of Turin, where he continued to collaborate until the year 2000, conducting 11 different operas and various symphonic concerts.

In 2001, Fabrizio Maria Carminati became Member of the Board of the Fondazione Torinese Teatro Regio of Turin. Through the following years, he served as the Artistic Director of the Teatro Donizetti of Bergamo, Artistic Director of the Fondazione Arena of Verona, and the Principal Guest Conductor of the Opera de Marseille conducting many different operas (Cavalleria Rusticana, Pagliacci, Andrea Chenier, Il Pirata, Tosca, Aida, La Gioconda, I Capuleti e I Montecchi) and innumerable symphonic concerts (of particular success the monographic project dedicated to Ottorini Respighi with performances of his celebrated symphonic repertoire).

In 2018 he was appointed Principal Guest Conductor at the Fondazione Teatro Verdi of Trieste where he still holds that position. This last appointment has seen him conduct the inaugurations of four different opera seasons: Norma in 2017 (with primadonna Marina Rebeka), Eugene Onegin, I Puritani and Aida. He also conducted Madame Butterfly, Maria Stuarda, Francesca da Rimini, Amico Fritz, Rigoletto, Pagliacci and Macbeth. Of particular success was an opera tour of Japan in 2019, with the Teatro Verdi of Trieste orchestra, chorus, and technicians, to perform La Traviata (main roles by Marina Rebeka and Ramon Vargas) with 15 performances staged in the most important Japanese cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and others.

In January 2020 he was appointed Artistic Director of the Teatro Massimo Vincenzo Bellini of Catania.

Fabrizio Maria Carminati has been repeatedly invited as a guest conductor to a large number of theatres in Italy and around the world.
