    Default Simone Perugini (Conductor) - Passing Off Past Opera Recordings As His Own!

    Is anyone else familiar with Simone Perugini? A week or so ago I bought his newly released recording of Salieri's Falstaff. I hadn't yet had the opportunity to listen to it. I casually mentioned it in a Salieri Facebook group, and the owner of that group commented that this is a rip off of the 80s recording by Tamas Pal and Hungaraton, which I also have. I compared both, and it is indeed a rip off. Perugini, or whomever is behind his name, merely lowered the pitch and sped up the tempos. I guess some label has released dozens of recordings by this so-called conductor. When you Google the "singers," "orchestras" and "choirs" listed on his recordings, they are only associated with his recordings. This is crazy. How is it even possible to do this, legally?

    It isn't possible to do it legally. Which label is his recordings on? If it is indeed a copy of the Hungaraton, then they should take legal proceedings.

    He has a bunch of recordings online at iTunes and Amazon. Mostly Cimarosa. There's also a Le nozze di Figaro that was apparently ripped from Barenboim's recording with Fischer-Dieskau. I don't have that recording to compare.

    Then there's this:

    If you launch that in Google Chrome it should translate to English.

    On the Falstaff recording the singers on it sound identical to the Hungaraton recording. All of them.
