$12.95 (+ Free shipping in the U.S.)

O Bell’ Alma is a hauntingly lyrical addition to opera’s ‘instrumental’ repertoire, with ravishing arias and interludes by the masters of the golden age of opera: Bellini, Puccini, Verdi, Donizetti, and Massenet. Captured in these virtuoso performances are two newly commissioned works: Musetta Dreams by Daniel Sturm, a fantasy/reverie based on the familiar Musetta’s Waltz from Puccini’s La Boheme, and O Bell’ Alma, the title piece, by David Evan Thomas, a concert paraphrase on themes from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor.

The Gramophone declares O Bell’ Alma one of the “Best New Recordings from North America” noting the players’ “thoughtful artistry, solid technique, and…glowing tone”.

The Bell’ Alma Duo released it’s second CD, La Belle Vie, transporting you to France. Compelling arias and stunning vocal roulades capture the enduring legacy of the elegant age of French Romantic Opera, heard here in brilliant flute & harp renditions arranged especially for the Duo. In addition to two “grande fantaisies” by late nineteenth century flute virtuosos are glorious arias from Bizet, Debussy, Chopin, and Delibes, an original work by Daniel Sturm based on Ravel’s L’Heure Espagnol, and a plaintive interlude from The Elephant Man by Laurent Petitgirard, arranged by the composer for the Bell’ Alma Duo.
