Some Voices That Might Carry for a While


By ANNE MIDGETTE
Published: December 23, 2007
OPERA lovers, myself included, are fond of wringing their hands about the failings of the present generation of singers compared with the great voices of the past. But in 2007, even as we furrow our brows about opera’s increased focus on the visual at the expense of the vocal, a number of artists offered evidence that the pendulum may be swinging back far enough that more singers understand the part about artistry, and are developing it.

CECILIA BARTOLI

Orchestra la scintilla zurich/bartoli, Barbican, London
By Edward Seckerson
Published: 24 December 2007
Welcome to the Cecilia Bartoli/Maria Malibran roadshow – the exhibition, the album, the concerts. It's no surprise that Bartoli identifies so closely with Malibran, the 19th-century Spanish operatic superstar whose memorabilia she has been collecting so avidly for many years now. Bartoli is a kind of Malibran.

MAHLER POR LAURO MACHADO COELHO

Bruno Walter, Otto Klemperer, Wilhelm Furtwängler; mais tarde Herbert von Karajan e sir Georg Solti – esses são os nomes que ocorrem, entre os grandes maestros que, desde a virada dos anos 50-60, se empenharam na missão de fazer descobrir e assimilar o legado sinfônico de Gustav Mahler.Porém, para o processo de revelação desse compositor – fundamental para o desenvolvimento da sinfonia pós-romântica; elo essencial entre o século XIX e a modernidade – uma das contribuições mais significativas é a de Leonard Bernstein, figura singular de maestro, compositor, ensaísta, pedagogo, animador cultural. Testemunho do gênio desse grande artista americano, e de sua afinidade instintiva com o universo sinfônico mahleriano, é a monumental Bernstein/Mahler: The Symphonies and Das Lied von der Erde, caixa com nove DVDs, lançada pela Deutsche Grammophon, que acaba de chegar às nossas lojas. A coleção reúne as gravações ao vivo das nove sinfonias e do Canto da Terra, feitas, entre 1972-76, para a Unit…

A few years after the 1844 premiere of “I Due Foscari,” one of his early (and now seldom heard) operas, Verdi disparaged it as a deadly bore. This gloomy three-act work is certainly dark but not dull, especially given the emotive performances by the soloists when Eve Queler conducted the Opera Orchestra of New York and the New York Choral Ensemble in a concert performance at Carnegie Hall on Thursday night.

'Queen of Spades': Kirov Plays Almost All the Right Cards
By Joe BannoSpecial to The Washington Post Saturday, December 8, 2007; Page C08
There was a moment early on at Thursday's performance of Tchaikovsky's "The Queen of Spades," in the Kirov Opera's production at the Kennedy Center Opera House, that established the company's unmatchable command of this work. It's the point at the end of the first scene when the soldier Gherman vows to wrest a betting secret from the formidable old Countess so he can make his fortune at the gaming tables. By story's end, his gambling addiction will trump his love for the Countess's granddaughter, Lisa, and destroy all three of them. As Gherman makes his vow, Tchaikovsky stirs up a sudden and violent electrical storm, onstage and in the orchestra. Nature has heard his words -- and isn't happy.

BILLY BUDD

Billy Budd
Barbican, London
Tim Ashley
Monday December 10, 2007
The Guardian
The Barbican's concert performances of Billy Budd form the opening of Homeward Bound, a two-season showcase for tenor Ian Bostridge's talents. They allow him to add Captain Vere to his growing, if controversial, list of Britten portraits. Some might question whether the role suits him. As always, Bostridge's intelligence is admirable. He is entirely credible when conveying the intellectualism of a man who ruminates over Plutarch in the middle of a war and subjects his own actions to analytical scrutiny. Yet neither his voice nor his presence are commanding enough to delineate the rule-bound man of action, and his characterisation is as yet incomplete.

The magnificent 07 Classical: Tom Service Friday December 7, 2007 The Guardian

One concert above all stood out in 2007: Claudio Abbado's performances of Mahler's Third Symphony at the Lucerne festival and the Proms. From where I was sitting in the Albert Hall that night in August, I could watch Abbado's eyes and hands coax the music from the matchless players of his Lucerne Festival Orchestra. The whole experience, from the Promethean opening movement to the outpouring of love and song in the finale, was etched on his features, and every nuance was communicated to the audience by the players. Music-making like this is life-changing, revelatory; it's something you're lucky ever to experience.

'I see a lot of sad stories''I see a lot of sad stories' Virtuoso she may be, but for Magdalena Kožená, singing is more about intensity and expression than perfect technique. Tom Service meets her Friday December 7, 2007 The Guardian
Magdalena Kožená wants to set the record straight. She's in London to make her belated debut at the Royal Opera House in Rossini's Cinderella, one of the most scintillating bel canto roles in the mezzo-soprano repertoire. She's gone on record recently suggesting that Rossini isn't high on her list of favourite composers, and even that his writing is dramatically one-dimensional and uninteresting. She tells me instead - just after she's finished rehearsals for the day and put her two-and-a-half-year-old, Jonas, to bed - that "it's true that I don't find in Rossini deep emotions, like for example, in Handel, but there is a different kind of joy of making music in it. It's extremely happy music, music which …
