Delight in arias sung by celebrated mezzo-soprano Jennifer Larmore and the symphony Schubert wrote under the direct influence of Italian opera. The achingly beautiful lament by Latvian Peteris Vasks provides a moving contrast.

  • Rossini Aria “Amici, in ogni evento…Pensa alla patria” from L’italiana in Algeri
  • Mozart Aria “Parto, ma tu ben mio” from La clemenza di Tito
  • Mozart Aria “Deh, per questo istante solo” from La clemenza di Tito
  • Rossini Aria “Una voce poco fa” from Il barbiere di Siviglia
  • Vasks Musica Dolorosa
  • Schubert Symphony No. 3 in D major
