News about Rolando's new Händel album


This is the cover of Rolando's new album called "Arias". Like it is announced at his Deutsche Grammophon site, a limited deluxe edition of the CD including a DVD will be available, too.
Well, what do you think about the cover, do you like it ? ; )


Thanks to dvedas for the information

Yes, I don't understand why he holds his hand so strange in front of his face ^^ but the background suits very well and I like it very much that the focus is on his face and especially on his unbelievable beautiful eyes ; )

Anonym hat gesagt…

no, horrible cd, he probably knows and doesn't dare to look straight to the public...

he's just trying to sell whatever before he looses his voice.
händel is for serious singers, not clowns.

If you don't like Anna and Rolando you have no reason to be here, so please go away an don't post such stupid comments anymore !

Anyone can listen to and like who and whatever he wants, but don't critise the other persons and things you don't like ! Spend your time better to the one's you like...

I suppose the question about this gesture will be asked in many interviews to come. If we're lucky, Rolando will reveal the point. I am sure it has some deep meaning for Rolando and is not simply the photographer's mad idea to grab attention. And you're right - the eyes are beautiful as well as the background. I like his hairdo, too;-)

Yes, I agree with ! I think that he will be asked about this gesture in the interviews about Arias and that it has sure a special meaning ! Yeess, his hairdo looks very good ; )

I am a great fan of Rolando (and Anna) but I think this cover is awful - it looks like an obscene gesture. Whoever designed/agreed it should be sacked.

The cover is GREAT. It means Rolando's Handel will srtike with full confidence dispite those ugly commentators who burst out their dirtiness without even listening what this Fantastic Musician offers. About "obscene gesture" (previous comment) I talked to MANY people, that idea never came to anyone, so this, probably, something about you.

ChristinaLuise hat gesagt…

"Obscene gesture" ?! Well I think the cover of cielo e mar is already more beautiful, but this one is very nice, too. Something different, very special. I'm looking forward to the photos in the booklet of the CD ! =)

Anonym hat gesagt…

"Obscene gesture" ? Please explain what you mean.


Three fingers.....hmmm....let me think........

Brian Smith hat gesagt…

I did not say it WAS an obscene gesture - but that it looked like one, and is thus unappealing to me personally. No disrespect was intended - as I said before I am one of Rolando's greatest fans. However the mere fact that this thread was started asking for comments about this cover design shows that it is potentially contentious - and as always opinions will differ.The most important thing however is the content of the CD which, as ever with this great artist, I shall look forward to listening to.

ChristinaLuise hat gesagt…

Yes, you're right ! People always have different opinions and I think this is a very positiv thing =) From my side it was no critic at all on your comment, I was only I little bit confused because I cannot see anything obsence in this photo ; ) I agree that the CD itself is really a little bit more important then the cover ; )

Brian Smith hat gesagt…

Thank you Christina - like you, I think Anna and Rolando are the greatest couple in opera today. I fully share your enthusiasm for them, and enjoy your site. Thank you, and keep up the good work!

ChristinaLuise hat gesagt…

Thanks a lot ! Nice to hear ; )

This is an enigmatic man making an enigmatic gesture - so fine by me!! I shall of course buy the new CD - Rolando can sing the telephone directory and I would love it - Maureen from Horndean

ChristinaLuise hat gesagt…

Yes ! He really could sing the telephone directory and I would love it, too ! xD xD

I think it's a very striking image - which is what you want from a CD cover.

It's far more interesting than the usual covers most artists go for and judging by the response to this blog post it certainly has got people thinking about it.

ChristinaLuise hat gesagt…

Yes, I agree it's an unusual cover, something special, very impressive... ; )
