Live Recording

The theme of the folly, as a distorted mirror and distorting daily life, is very old. From the rough territory of the mystical, to the great literature, up to the world of figurative arts, madness faithfully accompanies every day life as a disturbing shadow. For its nature, this theme naturally lends to be treated also in a comic way. Right in this format it became very popular in the late eighteenth century. After all, the chosen attraction of the composer from Bergamo with the Neapolitan city is too well known. So much so that, in Naples the opera remained on the playbill for 15 years. Herein a great melodic inspiration, the sense of exquisite humour, which often borders with a great sense of the theatre; all elements which make of this opera a small pearl. Besides the unusual distribution of voices (two sopranos and five bassos) which creates interesting contrasts.
The plot: Norina suspects that her husband Blinval, the Dragoons colonel from whom she has been separated for three years due to his military commitments, is not faithful. Counselled by her uncle Darlemont, who directs a mental hospital, she feigns to be crazy in order to understand if her husband still loves her or not. When Blinval understood the game, he himself feigns to be also crazy..until the two give up every pretence and make up.

Lohengrin is considered one of most remarkable of Sciarrino's works, which despite sharing a name with that other Lohengrin the only common characteristics are an inspiration from a particular medieval German fable and the fact that each is a product of a composer with a gift for highlighting emotional states through canny orchestration. Otherwise, Sciarrino's music is a logical continuation of Webern, a landscape of flinty utterances, alarming squeals and langorous sighs rendered all the more alien by Sciarrino's reliance upon unorthodox methods of sound production. Dramatically, the work continues the line of Peter Maxwell Davies's Eight Songs for a Mad King and Miss Donnithorne's Maggot, in both of which mental disorder is depicted through fragmented lines and extreme vocal techniques.

S. SCIARRINO - Luci mie traditrici - Algoritmo
ID: STR33900
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opéra

By Sciarrino’s own admission, this is the best and reference version of his well-known 2-act-opera Luci mie traditrici in a stunning performance by Ensemble Algoritmo conducted by Marco Angius.
Luci mie traditrici was presented on 19th May 1998 in the Schwetzinger Festpiele under the German title Die tödliche Blume (The Deadly Flower). The libretto by Sciarrino is based freely on "Il tradimento per l’onore", a prose tragedy published for the first time in 1659 under the name of G.A. Cicognini (Florence 1606-Venice 1649) and followed by various reprintings. The libretto centres on lovers’ basic conflicts but Luci reaches beyond the ordinary by showing how familiar impulses can spiral into the pathological and cause disaster. A timid person turns into a perfidious murderer when he loses the certainty of his relationship. Tender feelings mutate into obsession; boundless love becomes immeasurable suffering, and the dream of lovers’ paradise turns into a vision of eternal damnation.

Galina Pisarenko (Nastenka) & Anatoly Mishchevsky (The Dreamer)

“The best traditions of domestic music culture live on in Yuri Butsko’s deeply national music,” wrote Music in the USSR magazine.

When a student of the Moscow Conservatory, Butsko composed the opera Diary of a Mad Man after Nikolai Gogol (1963) which subsequently became generally recognized. Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Yuri Butsko’s opera White Nights based on a novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Giving his opera a subtitle “sentimental”, the composer emphasized its lyric and intimate orientation as if continuing the line of Tchaikovsky’s “lyric scenes”. Moreover, White Nights is a chamber opera where the events are given through a lyric narration and the monologues of its two characters Nastenka and Dreamer who is in love with her create a basis of the dramatic concept. Following Mussorgsky’s and Prokofiev’s traditions, the composer preserved Dostoyevsky’s original prosaic text revealing a peculiar poetic musicality of the great writer’s early romantic novel.

White Nights was premiered in Dresden in 1968 to a great success, however it has never been staged in this country.

The recording was made by Gennady Rozhdestvensky, a recognized interpreter of 20th century music, and the All-Union Radio Big Symphony Orchestra in 1973 with the participation of Galina Pisarenko and Anatoly Mishchevsky, People’s Artists of the RSFSR and soloists of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre.

Firma Melodiya presents an album with two rare operas of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - The Noblewoman Vera Sheloga and Mozart and Salieri.
Both of the one-act operas were written in the second half of the 1890s, in the period of the great Russian composer’s new heyday. Mozart and Salieri continued a peculiar tradition that was begun by Alexander Dargomyzhsky in The Stone Guest, a musical incarnation of Alexander Pushkin’s Little Tragedies. Similar to its predecessor, Rimsky-Korsakov did not change anything in Pushkin’s text turning the opera into a continuous dialogue of two characters. The citation from Mozart’s Requiem wonderfully fits into the musical development of the opera that is based on a striking contrast between the descriptions of the symbolically generalized figures - the Genius and the Envious One.
The Noblewoman Vera Sheloga emerged as an addition (prologue) to Rimsky Korsakov’s opera The Maid of Pskov that he worked on in those years. The scale and certain independence of this musical and dramatic picture that tells a story of secret love between the young Ivan the Terrible and a young boyarynia, as well as the difference in the author’s musical style that evolved over twenty years of his artistic career, induced him publish The Noblewoman Vera Sheloga as an individual work.
Rimsky-Korsakov’s operas were recorded in 1986 by the company of the USSR Bolshoi Theatre led by the prominent conductor Mark Ermler starring Tamara Milashkina, Nina Grigorieva, Evgeny Nesterenko, Alexander Fedin and other leading soloists of the theatre.
