Stephanie Blythe (Cornelia) and David Daniels (her son Sesto) give memorable performances as the grieving family of the murdered Pompey. Brian Asawa sings Cleopatra's conniving brother Tolomeo

Bravura diva by Jennifer Larmore( )

7 editions published in 2005 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jennifer Larmore's exceptional affinity with the bel canto repertoire, supported by her formidable technical armoury, has allowed Opera Rara the luxury of recording for this disc some of the most difficult vocal music of the 19th century. Virtuosity, then, is the theme of this album. It features music written for several of the greatest singers of the early 19th century, including Carolina Bassi, Rosmonda Pisaroni, Isabella Colbran and Maria Malibran. A lot has been written about the vocal abilities of these legendary singers. The music they sang is often very florid, the drama reinforced by pyrotechnical vocal hurdles, which on paper look just this side of impossible. It's only when you hear a singer of the calibre of Jennifer Larmore actually leaping those hurdles that you begin to understand what the fuss was all about. Works by Costa, Rossini, Pacini, Mercadante and Lauro Rossi are all featured on this CD which is accompanied by a fully coloured 100 page booklet with notes on each contribution written by the eminent specialist in 19th century opera Jeremy Commons
