  • Where's Runnicles: Glyndebourne Festival 2011: Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg
    as a consequence When McVicar has him weeping in recognition of true artistry when Walther succeeds as it seemed to me it only made the tragedy more powerful All this is enough even to outweigh the one clear vocal weak link the Walther of Marco Jentzsch Jentzsch regrettably is the one performer who simply isn t up to the job and one wonders how on earth he came to be hired In the first act he fortunately has little to do in Act Two the voice was strained inadequate delivery of text made sadly conspicuous by the mastery of others particularly Finley whose diction is superb phrases snatched tone often unpleasant This continues to be the case in Act Three and I could see my brother s problem in suspending disbelief it is understandably difficult to see how Jentzsch could be admitted as Master But somehow in Act Three I was so swept away by the rest of it that I ceased to mind his inadequacies and in a way they reinforced the irrationality of Eva s love McVicar sustains the tension through to the very end where it can easily flag and for me did something quite extraordinary with the anthem to the glory of Germany which with all of Wagner s Hitlerian connotations is often very difficult to take Somehow I felt that McVicar contrived to subvert all that By keeping the atmosphere of the Wahn monologue the lurking insanity of humans as a part of Sachs s characterisation all the way through the third act when Finley came to deliver these words they seemed to me to be warning against that madness His attempts to reach out to Beckmesser to draw him back into the circle become deeply poignant for it is Beckmesser as much as anyone with his mistreatment of Walther in Act One and his willingness to commit a crime to secure victory in Act Three who has come to symbolise that madness Madness which Sachs knows is very much within himself and which requires efforts of will to suppress the sense that he is overwhelmed and troubled by the popular acclamation comes in here too I was held enveloped in orchestral sound hoping that Beckmesser would come round This show has garnered a rather mixed galaxy of reviews from superlatives down to one critic who referred to it as The Mastersingers of Snoozeville The latter seems to me deeply unfair how anyone could doze off while Finley is giving this performance of a lifetime I cannot imagine Yet I can see the problems a Walther who isn t up to it a staging that s a bit staid conducting that hasn t quite yet got the full measure of the score I can only come back to where I came in the tears in my eyes and my mind still much preoccupied with Finley s unforgettable Sachs and the total experience of Act Three Labels Finn Opera Reviews No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home

  • Where's Runnicles: Where's Runnicles' favourite recordings issued in 2010
    to harshly pounding the keyboard This may be a crowded marketplace but these performances still stand out One of the highlights of the 2009 Edinburgh Festival was the visit of Mark Elder and the Hallé Together with soloists and festival chorus they gave a fabulous performance of the The Dream of Gerontius an excellent recording by similar forces also exists They have been working their way through Elgar s complete works with Elder showing himself among the composer s finest interpreters As a result I ve been keenly waiting for them to get to The Kingdom which I am probably in a minority in preferring to Gerontius It does not disappoint There is the Hallé s rich playing coupled with Elder s authoritative interpretation the result a million miles from the leaden feeling that can arise in poor performances of Elgar Add to this some fine solo performances including Iain Paterson Clair Rutter and Susan Bickley It s a fine recording from a technical standpoint too witness the atmosphere created by the first soft choral entry with Seek first the Kingdom of God Perhaps owing to all the time he has spent in the opera pit Elder both finely balances his forces and also shows a superb understanding of the structure of what can in the wrong hands be a sprawling and even lifeless piece The LSO s second entry comes in the form of Bernard Haitink s Alpensinfonie The recording had an advantage going in in that it is my favourite piece of Strauss and indeed one of my favourite pieces generally though that list is pretty long True there has been tough competition here of late and it isn t quite as stunningly visual as Mariss Jansons recent effort with the Concertgebouw nor does it have the out and out intensity and drama of Semyon Bychkov s expedition with the WDR Sinfonieorchester Koln What it does have in addition to some very fine playing is a superb sense of narrative line as Haitink leads us on a clear and compelling journey And he gives us some pretty stunning vistas along the way Also I find this a more summery view of the Alps than most Last and not least the recording is fairly free of the Barbican s problematic dryness The penultimate recording is a reissue but what a reissue It is also one that really deserves a whole post to itself and one day I may get round to writing it I already own a set of Clemens Krauss s 1953 Bayreuth Ring Cycle but unfortunately a stunning performance is hobbled by poor sound quality This new issue from Orfeo is important because it is for the first time based on the original radio tapes rather than some bootleg As such the sound is the cleanest clearest and most crucially the least tinny of any I ve heard Of course as with any Ring it is still a compromise the sound is less good than say Solti or Bohm and certainly modern Rings such as Haitink but there you have to put up with Eva Marton With Krauss you get a consistent cast of the highest order the likes of Varnay Hotter and Windgassen just listen to how he imitates the Woodbird in Act III of Götterdämmerung You also get a superb conductor something that in my view cannot really be said of the patchy and much overrated Testament set with Keilberth Take for example the heartbreaking sensitivity Krauss brings to Act I of Walküre often my least favourite part of the cycle or the searing drama of the closing scene which he then transforms into a sublime ending Yes most of the time Keilberth has better sound though not in scene three of Rheingold which is ruined by an annoying hiss but it isn t that much better Suffice to say this is now my go to Ring Yes if you want pristine modern sound you will not find it here but to me this is now the best compromise between cast conductor and sound that there is Ending this survey close to where it began is the third and final Mackerras disc Dvořák s 7th and 8th symphonies with the Philharmonia This is at least the third time he has recorded them and one could argue he has saved the best until last certainly this is true in the case of the 7th there probably isn t a huge amount to chose between this 8th and his previous effort with the Prague Symphony Orchestra The interpretations have drama and energy by the bucket load superb playing but also as with the tone poems a wonderful sense of Dvořák s rhythms the music dances along much of time The 7th in particular will always occupy a special place in my heart had Mackerras not been reading it in a cafe in London more than 60 years ago his life might have been very different The orchestra recently played it again at his memorial concert it is as moving on disc as it was then As I said at the outset I think it s been a fine year I look forward to what 2011 may bring I hope Mackerras will still be there I know the Philharmonia have some fine unreleased material Tchaikovsky 6 in particular Labels CD Reviews Features LSO Scottish Chamber Orchestra Tam No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home
