Title - 'Contrabandista'
Artist - Javier Camarena

For those not in the know, Javier Camarena is a Mexican operatic tenor. Born in Xalapa, Veracruz, his father was a nuclear plant technician.

He made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in October 2011 in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, singing the role of Court Almaviva.

On April 25th, 2014, Camarena became only the third singer in the history of the Metropolitan Opera to perform an encore onstage, and on March 12th, 2016 became the second singer to perform multiple encores.

On Contrabandista (released via Decca Classics), a release that also marks the first album of the new 'Mentored by Bartoli' series, Javier Camarena delves deep into the life and music of legendary Spanish tenor Manuel García.

1. García Cara Gitana Del Alma Mia (8:30)
2. García Yo Que Soy Contrabandista (2:25)
3. Rossini Si, Ritrovarla Io Giuro (5:56)
4. García Vous Dont L'Image Toujours Chere (6:28)
5. Zingarelli La Dai Regni Dell'Ombre, E Di Morte (4:00)
6. Rossini Amor...(Possente Nome!) - Duet with Cecilia Bartoli (14:27)
7. García O Ciel! De Ma Juste Furie Comment Reprimer Le Transport? (4:26)
8. Rossini Cessa Di Piu Resistere (7:57)
9. García Formarae Mi Plan Con Cuidado (9:51)
10. Rossini S'Ella Mi E Ognor Fedele ... Qual Sara Mai La Gioia (7:15)

Combining an arsenal of supreme vocal attributes, including a gleaming instrument of rare tonal beauty, even throughout its compass, replete with ringing high notes, and a dazzlingly accomplished coloratura facility, Camarena’s presence now dominates the international circuit, as was evidenced a while back by the ultimate accolade of encoring his Act 1 aria from Don Pasquale on the stage of New York’s Metropolitan Opera.

With his sensational debut recital on Decca, Camarena crowns his professional collaboration with superstar mezzo, Cecilia Bartoli - which has included critically lauded DVD releases from the Zurich Opera of Rossini’s Le Comte Ory and Otello in recent seasons.

The high regard which the Italian diva accords the tenor is evident in virtually every aspect of this release, conceived as a celebration of the legendary Spanish tenor, composer and impresario, Manuel Garcia (1775 – 1832), the original Comte Almaviva in Il Barbiere di Siviglia.

The collection features five remarkable items by García himself, including three world premiere recordings, alongside items by Rossini and Zingarelli. For the program’s centerpiece, Camarena is joined by Bartoli herself in the ravishing duet, ‘Amor.. Possente nome!’ from Rossini’s Armida.

The heart-stopping beauty of their singing here makes one long for a complete recording. Another highpoint is the exhilarating ease and fearless élan with which Camarena dispatches the final item, the fiendishly taxing aria and cabaletta, ‘S’ella mi é ognor fedele – Qual sara mai la gioia’ from Rossini’s Ricciardo e Zoraide.

Released as part of the 30th anniversary of Bartoli’s relationship with Decca, Contrabandista makes a fine companion to Maria, Bartoli’s own tribute to Garcia’s iconic mezzo soprano daughter, Maria Malibran (1808 – 1836), issued a decade ago to mark her 20th anniversary with the label. [CP]
