Highlights of the Russian opera

During the eighteenth century, especially at the time of Catherine the Great, Russia enjoyed a lively opera life; however, it was not until the nineteenth century that the national Russian opera was created. Musical life at the court of the Czar was predominantly oriented towards the West and attracted, for example, many Italian composers to St. Petersburg. The works they wrote there were also mostly based on Italian libretti, and if a Russian opera was ever performed, it followed on musically in the tradition of the operas that could be heard in Naples, Milan or Vienna.
A slow change came about in this situation during the first half of the nineteenth century, after Russia also began to be influenced by the sense of nationhood which was spreading through great parts of Europe in that period. Furthermore, this was the time during which the well-to-do middle class began to participate increasingly in the cultural life, and therefore, it is not just a coincidence that the birth of the national Russian opera more or less concurred with the opening of the ‘Great’ or ‘Bolshoi’ Theatre in Moscow in 1825.

This disc couples two major works composed in the 1970s, Melencolia I and Meridian, a setting of love poetry, with Ritual Fragment, written in 1989. The works display Birtwistle's distinctive and forceful voice and range in mood from austere introspective journeying to moments of unbearable intensity.

Hugh Wood - Symphony/ Scenes from Comus

Hugh Wood - Symphony/ Scenes from Comus
ID: NMCD070
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

Hugh Wood's Symphony is his most ambitious work to date: its four movements refer to musical sources as diverse as Mozart, Wagner and Janacek while never detracting from its coherence and power. It is coupled with Wood's dramatic setting of Milton's poem, the story of a wanderer lost in an enchanted wood.
