Dynamic: Italian Record Label New to Me
Email a week or so ago called my attention to the Italian record label Dynamic. Their web site is here (available in Italian and English). The catalog is an interesting mix of live and studio, current and historical recordings. Some might be familiar to you, but live recordings of unusual operas from less-known houses, maybe not. (Are these legal or bootleg? I do not know.) Also, they have recordings by many Italian instrumentalists completely unknown to me. I expect there are a few gems in there; goodness knows, plenty of outstanding instrumentalists don't get performances outside their region or country and don't have contracts with internationally distributed labels.
