Dvořák - Rusalka, opera, B. 203 (Op. 114)

Dvořák - Rusalka, opera, B. 203 (Op. 114)
ID: GFO00709
CDs: 3
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

Recorded live at Glyndebourne August 2009.
Includes 3 discs in a 76 page hard-bound book.

Lyric fairy tale in three acts: Libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil after Friedrich Heinrich Carl de la Motte Fouque's tale Undine. Dvorak's opera Rusalka reaches extraordinary heights of melodic eloquence. Rusalka is also the most consciously 'through-composed' of Dvorak's operas but this does not prevent Czech opera's most famous aria the ineffably beautiful 'Song to the Moon', being frequently extracted from the score and sung as a stand alone aria. Sometimes
thought of as a 'one aria opera', this is just one of many glorious arias for Rusalka, among them the moving first act plea, 'Your ancient wisdom everyone knows' ('Staleta moudrost tva vsechno vi'), made to the witch Jezibaba asking her to make her human, and her desolate lament 'Robbed of my youth' ('Mladosti sve pozbavena') at the start of Act 3. Rusalka is by no means a mainstay in the operatic oeuvre but this new 2009 production and recording from Glyndebourne is destined to put this much overlooked masterpiece to the forefront of romantic repertory.

The recording is aided by a stellar cast. Ana María Martínez's astonishing humanity shines through in her heart rending portrayal of Rusalka, burly tenor Brandon Jovanovich is
a handsome Prince, with real Slavic flavour added with Mischa Schelomianski as Rusalka's wise old father Vodnik, and Larissa Diadkova as the evil witch Jezíbaba, both
giving exemplary performances, with Czech conductor Jirí Belohlávek and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, giving the music a wonderful emotional intensity at all the right moments.

Debussy - Pelléas et Mélisande

Debussy - Pelléas et Mélisande
ID: GFO00363
CDs: 3
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

Michel Roux (Golaud), Denise Duval (Mélisande), Anna Reynolds (Geneviève), Guus Hoekman (Arkel), Hans Wilbrink (Pelléas), Rosine Brédy (Yniold) & John Shirley-Quirk (A Doctor)

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & The Glyndebourne Chorus, Vittorio Gui

3 discs in 200-page hard-bound book.

Pelléas et Mélisande was Claude Debussy’s only completed opera and the fantastical, imaginary world in which it is set, shimmers with Impressionist colour brought alive by his orchestral sound-world. The opera was first produced at Glyndebourne in 1962 as a tribute to Debussy’s centenary.
The highly acclaimed cast is led by Denise Duval, the pre-eminent French soprano of the day and artistic muse of Poulenc. The renowned conductor, Vittorio Gui, had known Debussy well - indeed Debussy’s stepdaughter attended the first night - and his performances attracted glowing reviews.
This recording is taken from the 1963 revival of the production and was to be the last time Artistic Director, Carl Ebert directed at Glyndebourne. Ebert worked at Glyndebourne for 30 years and of the vast body of his work, this production of Pelléas et Mélisande was considered, by many, to be his best ever.
Previously unreleased recording of Pelléas et Mélisande from the 1963 Glyndebourne Festival conducted by Vittorio Gui with Denise Duval.
This production was the last that Carl Ebert directed at Glyndebourne.
Recorded live at Glyndebourne in the summer of 1963.
Reviews and publicity expected in national newspapers, radio and specialist music magazines.
The first two Glyndebourne releases, Prokofiev’s Betrothal in a Monastery and Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, were greeted with critical acclaim.
The 3 CDs are packaged as a hard bound book containing a full libretto translated from the original language in English, Italian and German along with a commissioned article about the opera, and a synopsis in English, French and German.
