Olga Neuwirth: Lost Highway

Olga Neuwirth: Lost Highway
ID: KAI0012542
CDs: 2
Type: SACD
Collection: Opera Collection
Subcollection: Opera

Lost Highway is a composition that decidedly lives from the transformation of physical spaces, diverse inner and outer spaces, into sound spaces. In performance, this is achieved through various, three-dimensional sound projections, which surround the audience with playing, live-electronics, and virtual acoustics, resulting in different experiential relationships from within and without, close by, and from a distance. The illustrations of these sound spaces and notes naturally are only an attempt to approach the experience in the theater. Fortunately, the possibilities of surround-techniques have come to our aid, which envelop the listener with alternating, overlaying sound-strata. Thus, the present production was intended to be mixed for 5.1 surround. (Olga Neuwirth)

Includes booklet with texts by Stefan Drees, Robert Höldrich, David Lynch, Olga Neuwirth and Slavoj Zizek

Beat Furrer - Begehren, (Yearning), opera

Beat Furrer - Begehren, (Yearning), opera
ID: KAI0012432
CDs: 2
Type: SACD
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

World premiere recording

Begehren is a “dramaturgical” and compositional spur for music theatre in the 21st century: a parable on the dialectic of isolation, a man and a woman in a no man’s land of placeless-ness and a play on the potential possibilities behind reality. With a libretto after texts by Ovid, Virgil, Hermann Broch, Cesare Pavese and Günter Eich, this production was selected by a panel of 55 critics as the best worldwide premiere of the 2002/03 season

All-Union Radio Choir, All-Union Symphony Orchestra, Mikhail Zhukov


Firma Melodiya presents a recording of one of Sergey Prokofiev’s least frequently performed operas, Semyon Kotko. It was the first opera Prokofiev composed after he returned to the Soviet Union. It took him a long time to find a source for the plot. “I wanted to have living people with their passions, love, hate, joy and sorrow naturally ensuing from the new conditions”, the composer remembered. Prokofiev eventually chose a novel titled “I, Son of Working People” by Valentin Katayev who agreed to rework it into an opera libretto. Vsevolod Meyerhold, a director, old friend and companion, was supposed to stage the new opera but he fell victim to the Stalinist terror.

The opera was premiered in 1940 in Moscow and, as was the case with other outstanding works of that time, was a great success with the public and severely criticized ‘from above’. Even today, bright and figurative music of Semyon Kotko, with its genuinely Gogol-esque humour and genre scenes from everyday life of a Ukrainian village, neat descriptions of the characters, passionate dramatism and monumental chorus scenes, cannot leave a keen listener indifferent.

The opera Semyon Kotko was recorded in 1960 by soloists of the Moscow opera theatres and the All-Union Radio Choir and Orchestra conducted by Mikhail Zhukov. This remarkable musician was taught by Nikolai Golovanov and Konstantin Stanislavsky. The latter acknowledged Zhukov as an “exemplary music director who was able to decrypt the life of human spirit hidden in the score and explain it to an actor”. Zhukov conducted at the premiere of Semyon Kotko at the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre, and its recording became the conductor’s last work.

Gwyneth Jones, Leonie Rysanek, Anne Evans, Jeffrey Tate, and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande: all of the actors who participated in the making of Elektra at the Grand Théâtre in Geneva in 1990 remember this dream recording very well.
Following the disc featuring Pelléas (1969) with Eric Tappy, Gérard Souzay, Jean-Marie Auberson and the OSR released last year (CD 50-2415/16), Claves is pleased to continue its lyric adventure by bringing this extraordinary performance (which is said to have had the longest standing ovation in the history of the establishment) back to life on compact disc with the original recording made by Radio Suisse Romande. The double CD is accompanied by extensive documentation taken from the archives and with an introduction by Alain Perroux, who passionately remembers this event.

Grand Theatre, Geneva - 20 March 1969

Eric Tappy, tenor (Pelléas)
Erna Spoorenberg, soprano (Mélisande)
Gérard Souzay, baritone (Golaud)
Victor de Narké, bass (Arkel, King of Allemonde)
Anne-Marie Blanzat, soprano (Yniold, the young son of Golaud)
Derrik Olsen, bass baritone (A Physician)
Arlette Chédel, alto (Geneviève, mother of Golaud and Pelléas)
Gregor Koubrak baritone (Voice of a Shepherd)



Gérard Souzay (Golaud) and Eric Tappy (Pelléas) side by side in a production of Claude Debussy’s opera Pelléas et Mélisande under the direction of Jean-Marie Auberson at the Grand Théâtre in Geneva on 20 March 1969 - Claves offers the opportunity to relive this exceptional moment in a recording from its new series CHRONOS dedicated to particularly remarkable archive recordings. Under Radio Suisse Romande’s microphones the singers excelled and sparked a dialogue with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (which had just lost its founder and director Ernest Ansermet, who was to have lead the production) marked by a phenomenal naturalness. The clarity of their diction in combination with profound musicality makes this recording a veritable singing lesson. The recent decease of three main figures from this production in 2004 (Erna Spoorenberg on 18 March, Jean-Marie Auberson on 4 July, and Gérard Souzay on 17 August) lends this recording particular poignancy; it is dedicated to their memory.
