Michael Jarrell - Cassandre - a spoken opera for ensemble and actress

Michael Jarrell - Cassandre - a spoken opera for ensemble and actress
ID: KAI0012912
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera Collection

It's stretching the conventional, technical definition of the term to call Swiss composer Michael Jarrell's spoken monodrama "Cassandre" an opera, but that's the composer's description of it, and as such, it ought to be respected. It does consist of a musical narrative accompanying a verbal narrative, so even though it doesn't involve singing, it comes closer to standard opera than some pieces that are so designated. Also, the fact that it is so compelling as a unified musical and dramatic entity makes its definition seem less consequential; it's fully successful in using music and story to draw the listener into the protagonist's world. "Cassandre" has received numerous international performances since its 1994 premiere and has been translated into a variety of languages. In its form, popularity, subject matter (the protagonist's reflection on the trauma of war), emotional impact, and to some extent its musical style, it strongly resembles Marc Neikrug's haunting 1980 "music-drama" "Through Roses."

"Cassandre" is based on a text by Christa Wolf that actress Astrid Bas delivers with urgency and poignant dramatic restraint. Jarrell's score for chamber ensemble is notable for the evocative subtlety of its depiction of the Trojan prophet's state of mind as she recounts the horrors of the war. Jarrell avoids the obvious -- the big rhetorical gestures -- that would seem to be appropriate for such a dramatic and grim story, and instead creates a soundworld of gossamer, dream-like ethereality to underscore "Cassandre"'s intimate musings. His orchestration is incandescent, and the music is simply beautiful in its prismatically evolving textures. For a piece that rarely rises above a whisper, it makes a surprisingly visceral impact. IRCAM's Ensemble InterContemporain, led by Susanna Mälkki, plays the challenging score with exceptional grace and delicacy. Kairos' sound is immaculate, as is typical for its releases. Highly recommended for fans of new music.

This is a piece about reality and fiction, about the strength of the imagination and the power of the past, and about love...
Mexican author Carlos Fuentes wrote his short story Aura in Paris in 1961. It belongs to the traditions of magic realism and Latin American ghost stories, even if it actually goes far beyond these. In an essay which is almost as long as the actual story, Fuentes not only explained the autobiographical impetus for the tale, but also described the culture-historical and motivic framework within which this story lives. It ranges from ancient Chinese literature to a Japanese story from the 17th century and on to Luis Buñuel’s Exterminating Angel, Alexandre Dumas’ Lady of the Camellias and Verdi’s La Traviata. For Fuentes, Aura is above all a story of eroticism and necrophilia, taking up the time-honoured tradition of stories about eternal fidelity and couples who are reunited in death. (Rainer Pöllmann)

Emily Pailthorpe (the youngest winner of the Gillet International oboe competition) joins Elaine Douvas (Principle Oboe of the Met Opera Orch.) to give an oboist’s-eye-view of opera.


Introduction by Emily Pailthorpe:

This is a CD for lovers of opera and lovers of the oboe alike. Indeed it is often the vocal quality of the oboe to which listeners and players are drawn. Whether reaching out from the pit orchestra in accompaniment, or taking centre stage for a chamber work, playing the oboe does feel like singing. Portrayed here are some of the great oboe moments in opera (Fidelio, Meistersinger) as well as many that we always wanted to stand up and sing ourselves! (For example the 'Queen of the Night' aria from Mozart's Magic Flute, the Duo from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor.) Both the Diva and the gracious accompanist appear here - often swapping seamlessly from one role to the other.

My own love affair with opera grew when I was a student at The Juilliard School in New York, and my teacher Elaine Douvas gave me standing passes to come and hear the productions at the New York Metropolitan Opera, where she was principal oboe. It is a great pleasure to collaborate on this CD with her and her colleagues from the Met, and also to highlight the opera connection of players from the London CONCHORD Ensemble. Daniel Pailthorpe was principal flute at English National Opera for ten years and Andrea de Flammineis is principal bassoon at the Royal Opera House. I think that in this recording the operatic experience of all these players shines through.
