Sciarrino: Luci Mie Traditrici


by Andrew Clements [Guardian, 21 July 2011]
Sciarrino's opera may be only a little over a decade old, yet this is already the third version of Luci Mie Traditrici, and the second on the Stradivarius label, to appear on disc. Unlike its predecessors, though, this recording comes from stage performances - at last year's Montepulciano festival - and has a dimension of vivid theatricality that makes the others seem strait-laced in comparison.
