Marilyn Horne - Non Temer D'un Basso Affetto

Singer: Marilyn Horne

The legendary American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne singing Calbo's recitative and aria Non Temer D'un Basso Affetto from Gioachino Rossini's 1820 opera Maometto II. The composer later revised this work in French as Le Siège De Corinthe (L'Assedio Di Corinto, 1826) with this particular aria being sung by the character of Ismène. It was in this role that, during a 1969 performance at La Scala, Horne received a remarkable mid-act seven minute ovation. I guess it must have been for Non Temer. :) In 1982, the Rossini Foundation awarded her its first Golden Plaque, acclaiming her as "the greatest Rossini singer in the world". She also had a crucial role in bringing baroque opera to the modern American audience and influenced the crème de la crème of US countertenors from Jeffrey Gall and Derek Lee Rading to David Daniels and Bejun Mehta. This video is from a RAI broadcast of Horne's Rossini Opera Festival performance that took place on 30.07.1986. in Pesaro with the Nuova Orchestra Italiana conduced by Charles Mackerras.
