Verdi - Falstaff

Verdi - Falstaff
ID: GFO01260
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Opera

Recorded live at Glyndebourne in June 1960.
Includes 2 discs in a 153 page hard-bound book.


Glyndebourne’s association with Falstaff commenced in 1955 for a production staged at the Edinburgh Festival, directed by Carl Ebert, designed by Osbert Lancaster and conducted by the great Carlo Maria Giulini.
Falstaff quickly proved to be a favourite and enjoyed 5 revivals in quick succession. This recording comes from Glyndebourne Festivals’ 1960 season, conducted by Vittorio Gui, in what was Geraint Evan’s third outing as Falstaff.
Evans sung in the 1957 and 1958 Glyndebourne restagings, in a role that was to go on and have a role in defining him as a singer, performing Falstaff in numerous productions including Covent Garden and the Metropolitan Opera, and on record under Georg Solti.
On this recording, Geraint Evans is joined by Sesto Bruscantini as Ford, Juan Oncina as Fenton, Ilva Ligabue as Alice Ford, a role she is most remembered for having recorded it twice: under George Solti and Leonard Bernstein, this (new/archive) recording predating both these.
The remaining classic cast member is the Swiss tenor Hugues Cuénod as Dr Caius, his glorious sense of the role's comedy beautifully portrayed here. Hugues Cuénod passed away in December 2010 at the age of 108, having a career that spanned 66 years. He was something of an institution at Glyndebourne, walking the Glyndebourne stage for over 30 years and involved in some 470 performances. At the age of 82 he appeared in Glyndebourne’s production of Le nozze di Figaro and in 1990, at the age of 87, was offered the role of Monsieur Taupe in Capriccio, a role he had sung previously at Glyndebourne, but declined.

Geraint Evans (Sir John Falstaff), Ilva Ligabue (Alice), Anna Maria Rota (Meg), Oralia Dominguez (Mistress Quickly), Sesto Bruscantini (Ford), Mariella Adani (Nannetta), Juan Oncina (Fenton) & Hugues Cuénod (Dr Caius)

From 1955 through 1964, Judy Garland was one of the most celebrated, acclaimed, and best-selling album artists on the EMI/Capitol roster. On several occasions during those years, she had the opportunity of recording at Abbey Road Studios. This 2CD set assembles her work done there between October 1957 and August 1964. Not only are 12 previously unreleased alternate takes included but, more significantly, a completely unknown/undocumented recording of a song called Please Say 'Ah'! The Mort Lindsey orchestration of this song is complicated and marvellous, the band on top form; Garland and her vocal partner, Saul Chaplin, are having a wonderful time and this great piece of fun, liberally sprinkled with Garland's infectious laugh, demands to be heard! This historic issue is the very first composite compact disc celebration of its kind and a guaranteed collector's item for anyone who appreciates the Great Popular Songbook - and "the World's greatest entertainer."

The world premiere recording of the opera Alfred, by central Czech musical figure and composer of the New World Symphony, Antonín Dvořák, is a monumental event of great scholarly interest for experts and the general public alike.

This Wagnerian-style opera originated in 1870, and was performed and recorded for the first time as written (i.e. in the German language) in Prague's premiere acoustical venue: the Dvořák Hall at the Rudolfínum. The critical edition of the score and materials were prepared by a team of leading Dvořák scholars.

The recording features premiere Wagnerian singers, as well as the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic Choir, and conductor Heiko Mathias Förster.

Recorded live at Glyndebourne Opera Hause, Lewes, England in 2010
Includes 2 discs in a 85 page hard-bound book.

First conducted in Weimar in 1893 by Richard Strauss, Hänsel und Gretel had immediate worldwide success, the Hamburg premiere in 1894 conducted by Gustav Mahler. In its first year, over 50 German theatres staged a production and it has been translated into over 20 languages. In the UK it was the first complete opera to ever be broadcast from Covent Garden back in 1923, and was a staple in the opera repertory until the 1950s where it fell into a black hole. Here Hänsel und Gretel remained until Glyndebourne’s new production in 2008. This recording comes from the re-staging in 2010.
This recording boasts a fine cast, with Alice Coote a seasoned Hänsel having also performed in the role at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Lydia Teuscher making a notable UK debut as Gretel with Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke’s beautiful portrayal of the Witch stealing the show. Robin Ticciati, Glyndebourne’s new Artistic Director from 2013, clearly loves the piece: his conducting is nothing short of wonderful, with the performance from the London Philharmonic Orchestra a real highlight on this recording.

Alice Coote (Hänsel), Lydia Teuscher (Gretel), Irmgard Vilsmaier (Mother), William Dazeley (Father), Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke (Witch), Tara Erraught (Sandman) & Ida Falk Winland (Dew Fairy)

Recorded live at Glyndebourne in July and August 2006.
Includes 2 discs in a 65 page hard-bound book.

Glyndebourne staged the premiere of The Rape of Lucretia with Kathleen Ferrier cast as Lucretia and the following year premiered Albert Herring. Thirty four years then elapsed before another of Britten’s operas was staged. In 1981, Glyndebourne presented A Midsummer Night’s Dream. An acclaimed staging by director Peter Hall which has enjoyed 4 revivals since, it has frequently been described by critics, and the press alike, as the ‘perfect realisation of a fairy tale’.
Britten employed disparate musical styles and devices to depict the interaction of the fairy kingdom; the quartet of lovers, the Mechanicals and town tradesmen determined to make it in showbiz. He juxtaposes a wide variety of styles to create the various worlds in the play. Brash trombones clash with Elizabethan flourishes, tormented string sounds and tuned percussion evoke the mood of the dark forests. With the challenging vocal writing a combination of singing, sprechstimme and spoken word cleverly intertwine.
This recording from Glyndebourne’s 2006 Festival, and the most recent revival, is a remarkable production cleverly capturing both the callousness of Oberon’s trickery on Tytania, as well as beautifully conveying the sense of sexual freedom that Bottom experiences when encountering Tytania. The stars in this recording are numerous but without doubt Bejun Mehta’s Oberon is one of the greatest on record. Iride Martinez makes a notable UK debut as Tytania. The lovers’ quartet sing almost all of their scenes as an ensemble, and beautifully at that, with Kate Royal (as Helena) and Jared Holt (as Demetrius) making the most harmonious of couples. Matthew Rose is both a wonderful and beguiling Bottom and is at the very heart of this recording whilst not forgetting the perfect performance from the well drilled Trinity Boys Choir, and show stealer, the 11 year-old Jack Morlen as Puck.


Bejun Mehta (Oberon), Íride Martínez (Tytania), Jack Morlen (Puck), Timothy Robinson (Lysander), Jared Holt (Demetrius), Tove Dahlberg (Hermia), Kate Royal (Helena) & Matthew Rose (Bottom)

Recorded live at Glyndebourne in August 2007.
Includes 2 discs in a 60 page hard-bound book.

Britten’s operas have an interesting history at Glyndebourne beginning with the premiere of The Rape of Lucretia at Glyndebourne (1946) with Kathleen Ferrier as Lucretia.
Glyndebourne also premiered Albert Herring (1947) then 34 years of the Glyndebourne Festival elapsed until another of Britten’s operas, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was staged in 1981. It took over 50 years to stage The Turn of the Screw, which after a touring production in 2006 transferred to the Festival in 2007, from where this recording is captured.
Every role is beautifully cast through tenor William Burden, as both Prologue and Peter Quint, and Camilla Tilling as the convincing troubled Governess. Anne-Marie Owens is an extremely affable Mrs Grose, her voice endearing and warm.
Joanna Songi is a feisty and resentful Flora; Christopher Sladdin’s boy treble voice is hauntingly beautiful, and Emma Bell is a sure-footed Miss Jessel.
This recording is aided in no small part by conductor Edward Gardner whose intense understanding of the score is made all the more satisfying by the faultless playing of the ensemble from the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
This recording is certain to leave listeners troubled. It would not be the recording it is if it did not do so; the mood dark and chilling while maintaining an element of thrill.
