Domenico Cimarosa - Il Matrimonio Segreto (libretto by Giovanni Bertati)
EAC RIP | FLAC + CUE + LOG | HQ Scans + PDF libretto
ARTS | Recorded: 1991 | Released: 1994
Orchestra of Eastern Netherlands - Gabriele Bellini

Another major release for the budget series ARTS. This is the first complete recording of the Cimarosa masterpiece, the first studio recording in DDD, the most accurate recording following the original manuscript. The only competitor in fact is an old DGG recording with a non-italian cast, only offered in certain countries and at mid to high price.
Il Matrimonio Segreto is one of the most important operas of the late XVIIIth Century, written only a couple of years after Mozart's Cos fan tutte and about twenty years before the first Rossini masterpieces. Altogether it is one of the most difficult comic operas of this period and one of the longest: the first complete edition runs for about 3 hours and 15 minutes. For this edition, recitativi have been released utilizing a Fortepiano. The cast includes some of the most accomplished italian singers for this repertoire together with some of the most renowned young soloists from the U.S.A. (Susan Patterson), U.K.
(Janet Williams) and Finnland (Petteri Salomaa), all of them having already recorded for the majors. Gabriele Bellini, a highly experienced italian conductor, conducts the orchestra of the Netherlands Opera.

Full tracklisting, cast, audio samples and reviews can be found at ARTS official website

- First complete recording
- First studio recording in DDD

I was really surprised when I didn't find this on avax (or other sites). Il Matrimonio Segreto is undoubtly one of the greatest operas ever composed, and as far as I know the only one to be completely "bis'ed" in the music history, from the beginning to the end. You might be thinking "what? 7 hours of opera?! I'm gonna die for sure!!!" but this is Cimarosa, not Mozart :D
I listened to it twice in a row with so much ease, the music flows so naturally you don't even notice the time passing with it. I was ready for a 3rd da capo but, since i listened it at night, it was already 7am lol.
Unfortunately I've only found an italian libretto, without any english/french/whatever translation, so enjoy it this way, in the end the plot is rather simple and you can find so much infos online about this opera that you don't need it at all. Also the booklet is in italian, english, french and german.
(lucky me I'm italian <3)

No more talking now, LISTEN to it. Another (less famous) Matrimonio will follow soon.
