The first release in a new partnership between Classical Opera and Signum Records begins with Mozart’s remarkable sacred singspiel Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots, composed when he was just eleven. The music is full of tender beauty, dynamism and descriptive flair, and the young composer’s innate sense of understanding and sympathy for the human condition already shines through.

The story follows the efforts of The Spirit of Christianity (Andrew Kennedy) - aided by Divine Justice (Cora Burggraaf ) and Divine Mercy (Sarah Fox) - to win back the heart of a Lapsed Christian (Allan Clayton) as he lies fast asleep. In opposition to this however stands The Spirit of Worldliness (Sophie Bevan), who urges the Christian to forget what The Spirit shows him and to follow her pleasure-seeking philosophies. As Justice and Mercy withdraw to observe, The Spirit of Christianity seeks to win back the lapsed Christian, but will this lost soul be able to resist the temptations of indulgence and short-term satisfaction that Worldliness offers?

The second disc in this 2CD Set is an Enhanced CD, with an exclusive 10-minute feature on the making of the recording additional libretto and programme note translations. Full German to English translations included in the booklet.

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

CDs: 2

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.
