Such was the success of Adelson e Salvini composed for his fellow students in Naples, the young Bellini was asked to write a work for the great San Carlo theatre. He was just twenty-four at the time, and responded to such an opportunity with a highly charged and dramatic two act opera, Bianca e Fernando. The booklet, that comes with this new release, then rather confuses me, as I have always understood that its original name was only temporarily changed to Bianca e Gernando out of respect for the recent death of King Ferdinand. So what we have here is, I believe, Bellini’s original score of that 1826 opera, Bianca e Fernando, based on Carlo Roti’s drama Bianca e Fernando alla tomba di Carlo IV, Duca di Agrigento. It is a basic opera plot used in so many different guises where the ageing ruler was deposed by a usurper while his son is abroad, the pretender intending to marry the daughter of the former ruler to make his rule complete. Here it comes to a happy ending with the return of his disguised son with his many soldiers, thus saving both his incarcerated father and his sister. In this performance, the son, Fernando, is given the name Gernando. There was also a later revision premiered in 1828, but in this release of a concert performance at the 2016 ‘Rossini in Wildbad Festival’, we do return to the actual score used in 1826. Truth to tell, the opera’s neglect has probably done Bellini a favour, for it is couched in the operatic conventions of the previous era, and does not fit into his place as the begetter of the Italian Romantic era in opera. As is usual with this annual festival, the cast is largely a mix of Italian and East European singers, the imposing tenor, Maxim Mironov, taking the highly taxing role of Gernando, singing a massive and challenging aria not long after the opera begins. I am also taken by the baritone, Vittorio Prato, who sounds too pleasing for the nasty usurper, Filippo, and he too has a long aria when his voiced has hardly warmed. In the role of Bianca, the young coloratura, Silvia Dalla Benetta, does not make her first entry until the finale to the first act, and then she does not have a particularly rewarding aria. Heard to much better effect in the second act where she realises Gernando has come to save her from marrying Filippo. In the role of Clemente, the aid to Gernando, Zong Shi is a lightweight bass, while the other bass, Luca Dall’Amico, in the cameo role of the father, has problems with intonation in his recitative and brief aria. The chorus sing with suitable vigour, though I have heard the Virtuosi Brunensis in better form for the conductor, Antonino Fogliani. Pity they didn’t ask the audience not to applaud during acts, but let us be very grateful to Southwest German Radio for this recording of a rarity—whatever its name. --- David Denton, naxos.com
