New Otello Album to be released in November

Melody Moore’s latest CD will feature her Desdemona from Verdi’s Otello. In her first recording of an Italian opera for Pentatone, she demonstrates that her truly youthful dramatic soprano voice is able to flawlessly continue the pure Italian tradition of a Renata Tebaldi.

The Austrian tenor Nikolai Schukoff once again widens his professional range, singing the demanding title role of Otello with ardent intensity. As his abysmally evil opponent, the American baritone Lester Lynch matches him in vocal intensity. Leading the prestigious Gulbenkian Orchestra in this ambitious studio recording is the dynamic and experienced conductor Lawrence Foster.

This CD is available for pre-order and download and will be released on November 1. To purchase your copy, visit Pentatone’s website.
