Gluck – Orfeo Ed Euridice (2CDs) – Fasano – Verrett – Moffo

Covers + lossless, Not my Rip


“Shirley Verrett makes a deeply impressive Orfeo, firm and pure in sound, classically restrained in expression; and her “Che farO”, at a moderate, beautifully judged speed, is very finely sung, poised and quietly moving. The set is conducted by Renato Fasano, whose pacing of the score shows a very sure touch. The dance music has a grace and lightness, and a stylistic command, that one might not have expected from an orchestra which in those days seemed to be fed chiefly on a diet of Vivaldi.”(Gramophone)

Wagner Siegfried – Der Friedensengel – Living Stage

Covers + lossless, Not my Rip


The opera provides a superb vehicle for Hanne-Lore Kuhse, one of the great singers of her day, and can be recommended on that point alone. But, what of Siegfried Wagner’s music? His debt to Humperdinck is apparent in all his operas, as is the occasional nod to Meyerbeer (e.g. the oath-taking in “Der Schmied von Marienburg” might recall for some the “benediction of the swords” from “Les Huguenots” in dramatic intent, if not musical substance.) He shows a complete mastery of his father’s technique, in terms of orchestral sound and motivic transformation (particularly in the remarkable preludes and overtures.) He lacks not his father’s talent, but his intensity. While his oeuvre boasts no such dramatic icons as Brunnhilde or Isolde, Siegfried nonetheless crafts scenes of extraordinary power and sensitivity for his heroines – (notably, Friedelind in “Der Schmied von Marienburg” and Mita in “Der Friedensengel”), though here, as elsewhere in Siegfried’s music, it’s a gentle passion which generally resolves itself in a soft, preternatural glow (see also, the finales of act 2(“Bruder Lustig”) and acts 1 & 3 of “Sonnenflammen.” I’d go so far as to say, the two scenes for Mita and Friedelind, both approximately 20 minutes in length, offer the lead soprano (paging Renee Fleming, or Helen Donath!) music of more beauty and complexity than any comparable pages in “Meistersinger” or “Parsifal” – and less strenuous and more heartfelt than most Strauss, post-Ariadne. (I’ll make an exception for the final scene from “Capriccio”)
This recording of “Der Friedensengel” (from 1975) is a historic document – the first performance of an opera by Siegfried Wagner in over 30 years; also included is a recital of Siegfried’s songs, superlatively done by Ms. Kuhse – best of all, the delightful “Ballad of Johnny Cake.”
Other operas by Siegfried Wagner, recommended if you can find them: “Der Kobold” (London – Hanne-Lore Kuhse; Monica Sinclair); “Herzog Wildfang” (Munich-Anton De Ridder)- both available from private sources; from Marco Polo recordings – “Der Schmied von Marienburg” and “Bruder Lustig;”
also, an excellent orchestral disc from Dmitri Kitajenko and the Frankfurt Symphony, featuring selections from “Sonnenflammen,” “Bruder Lustig” and the symphonic poem “Gluck.”

Wolf – Italienisches Liederbuch – Bonney – Hagegard – Parsons – Teldec

Covers + lossless, Not my Rip


“Wolf’s settings of Paul Heyse’s mid-19th-century translations of Italian folk verses offer an intricate and colourful tapestry of reflections on life and love. The craftsmanship of these songs is truly amazing. The piano writing has a definite life of its own. Wolf has the vocal lines and piano accompaniments in almost constant dialogue, totally independent but each one subtly complementing and being complemented by the other. In this respect, Parsons’s musical interplay with the singers is masterly. Bonney’s delivery and interpretation range through meltingly beautiful pianissimo phrasing to feisty playfulness. Her voice now has an almost iridescent quality. Hagegård provides several haunting and poignant cameos with his distinctive warm baritone, but he is occasionally prone to roughness, sounding strained rather than passionate. This is a vivid and characterful recording with some magical moments, particularly from Bonney.”
