In spite of being the lover of classical music of my days like the chorister done several generations have tried hard to enjoy work but with an exception of alive perfromances and one or two Mozart, Puccini, Green & Wagner works when they are in a right way there is resolutely has failed. This in spite of, on Navidad there be enjoyed to look the documentary roughly Freddie Mercury and experience Barcellona - Special Edition' of Amazon afterwards.

A wide row of Montserrat vocal Talent of the known works smaller. In an integer of good value. It is not postponed, some of some disks have so only four pieces in the each one.

A collection is absolutely glorious. Has the majority of some albums on vinyl but obviously is far easier that touch the cd more than the disk.
A packaging could have been better. It has arrived slightly it has broken.

Sadly, On October 6, 2018 a world of work has lost one of the his greats. Montserrat Caballe, one of a towering the voices of a 20th century is partorisca go, but felizmente will maintain the base of in his legacy has registered glorious, duquel this together extraordinary is the wonderful, and example quite comprehensible. It is true that a serious of 'Rarity' is (felizmente!) No longer quite like this scarce, and perhaps these registers have contributed to a recovery of this repertoire. Yes, many some register is quite old, but for one the majority to separate a voice is has taken well. This neighbour is the property .

The one who the pleasure is to have some wonderful reproductions of some coverages of elepé original in this together. Really it helps to create the sense of nostalgia and emotion. That the difference of an indifferent packaging of like this set of recent box.

That will surprise calm in this neighbour is a compatible beauty and art of some actions, like those thrilling has to that it has been to see on phase. His capacity to exert such one enormous voice to create such the plenary, his powerful and beautiful and then takes well behind without appealing to your half or disconnected the sound was the marvel .

Some of some registers have dated the little. A Rossini the aims of disk that has evolved it a practice of action of his works (pocolos a material is escarce' these days)and a comparison is fascinating. In a Donizetti disk a register sometimes distorts a voice in big remarks which is the terrible shame . If be any one the low actions are one the fault of some indifferent in leader and look low Spanish orchestras. A Granados the arrangements are to dull and one touching bland. Some winds in some of a harm lean of the his of early recitals, but this strangely somehow adds to a sense of discovery. It has been better to comprise his RCA Traviata or Lucrezia Borgia instead? Tongue.

If you are unfamiliar with a Salome and Norma Register will be pleasantly surprised by a subtlety and efficiency of his dramatic interpretation. All some disks of recital are enormous and sufficiently varied in a material has covered... And of course agreement in an on reviewers' opinion of Strauss Lieder disk.

So much to enjoy, and the one who the lovely present to buy for any one likes you more than calm.

Ossia The neighbour adds , and the subject of good anniversary to coincide with one 75th anniversary of a Spanish adds soprano, the one of glorious truth diva and only voice, perhaps a last example of the race of the directly has connected singers with a Glorious Tradition and the vocal art -of purity of the yours, control to breathe, combination to be able to and agility, musicianship and refined art, any to mention breathtaking pianissimi- this looks to be quite forgotten for today of stars of work of half comunicacionales big. Sony Has issued in his original jackets, like this beautiful mini elepé, the majority of his RCA registers and some of his Spaniards Columbia the registers have released among 1965, year of his prime minister elepé for an American company (presenting Montserrat Caballé), and 1972. Comprising Montserrat Caballé Sings Zarzuela, Songs of Enrique Granados, Strauss Lieder Recital, Green rarities, Rossini rarities, Zarzuelas Duets of Amur (with husband Bernabé Martí), Donizetti rarity, the Operatic heroes Are, Caballé & Verret Duets, and two complete works, Norma and Salome. Disappeared is, among another, some complete register of Lucrezia Borgia and Traviata. In all the chance, the wonderful box-dipped in the prize of @@subject and, although I have had already all these registers in of the incarnations of LEADING CD, has ensured my copy has known grieves about he. And to the equal that owes calm, before it is too late, when being the edition has limited. Now, if Sony has given a same treatment to some 8 elepé has registered for a Spanish Vergara and Columbia Seal any one has comprised here (start with the glorious 1963 Toldrå recital, his a lot of first elepé), would be eternally thankful. Almost everything of them have been released in of the compilations for RCA France to celebrate Caballé 70th anniversary. Sony Possesses now some legislations and he would be the wonderful sequela to this together.

And now that they are in him, that in his Green Requiems with Plåcido Sunday, directed for Metha? Or alive Gem has given Vergy in Carnegie Room? Both albums have been released for Columbia in a Masterworks serious in elepé and has not looked on CD has taken still. Ossia The real crime . That is Sony while to?

There is like this partorisca enjoy in this wonderful register, some of his available partorisca a first time on CD, which show Montserrat Caballe extraordinary versatility. Strauss, Granados, scarce works arias, zarzuelas, duets with his husband Bernabe Marti and with Shirley utmost Verrett: it is everything here. It would take too long partorisca comment fully in some contents of these 15 CDs, but partorisca me some signals underlined is some Green Rarities that still has in elepé, and a delicious Zarzuela Duets of Amur. I will go back again and again to some registers in this a lot of welcome emission!
4 / 5
This neighbour contains some of Montserrat CaballĂ© better register: presenting Montserrat CaballĂ©, some Greens, Rossini and Donizetti Rarities and an album of duets with Shirley Verrett. To those also would add Richard Strauss' “Salome”.
Included Although has these registers in leading iterations, has wanted to listen Strauss songs and some songs of Enique Granados.
Although has the wonderful voice for Strauss and his diction in Salome is a lot well, Strauss songs is the disappointment ; his diction is lazy (and sometimes so only simple wrong) and sing – maddeningly - low yours consistently. A Grandaos the songs are characterised down and a Zarazuela arias and the duets are, frankly, boring. Strauss recitals for Schwarzkopf, Of the House, You Kanawa, Janowitz and Fleming is more in satisfactory. You will appreciate the Spanish songs sung for Pilar Lorengar, Victoria of the Angeles and Teresa Berganza more than those in this box. And Zarazuela arias and duets for Sunday and Lorengar will aim like you these needs of music to go to be effective.
Especially that – has 64 pages of notes and clue timings, but any text.
These am also a lot of remastered , but so only “mastered” for this box (anything concealed really half). My joint is to take a previously issued Rarites album ( 3 elepĂ© on 2 CDs), an album to start with, some duets with Verrett and perhaps a Salome, everything individually. Everything will come with texts.
4 / 5
Has some hard to find pieces in this complete collection. Any all some CDs is to my flavour - but objective Caballe full repetoire.
5 / 5
There was not very listened a Caballe the registers like this the collection is the gem of classical work arias and unusual Spanish music with quell'I am not familiarised. A must has for any defender of work.
5 / 5
A voice for some ages! This neighbour is wonderful. They are luckier that more the one who buys this dips so that has an original Lps with some texts etc. The lack of texts is a backside of only draw but thus calm prize can not expect everything.

I have it that there is enjoyed always listen the people those who in fact can sing (like any so only comprises singers of work, incidentally), as when originally I have found this together in version of cassette in the sale of yard the snapped up. It contains a disk for singer, and a music is exceptional and comprises the mix of both operatic and popular songs. It was very pleased partorisca find a version of CD on Amazon, and is so only another example adds of the reader is Digests music. If you enjoy to listen the music and the singers add add, highly recommends this together.

Formed: CD of Audio Well, thinks this is not a work has expected partorisca like this long. I can imagine other works duquel wants to have the version has registered. A presentation is until Decca is (Londra) the big levels but a register is so only 'a lot of'. A flange, alas, in some chances is a lot, very ugly. Crown Henschel is yelling around - when it is this lady that goes still to take? - And Ladies Sunday his flange I better adds Spenglish.
With which I while I bored me reason a history and a text were that 'old fashioned'. And, Alvarez and Sunday have listened to sing English is likes to listen Japanese in Dutch speaker. Has calm has listened (Sunday) bordos Wagner? No, well it does not try because calm tire you.
In general has found this company learns the stray occasion.
1 star partorisca Adventurism and 1 star for presentation.

Formed: Audio CD Valley, a libretto is poor (taking far too many liberties in a legend is based on although ossia in no way an only reason) and yes a Spanish mould goes the little too many R is when singing in English (which is an original tongue was written in); but with this said, found quell'quite enjoyable. Some hearts are stirring, a music is exciting and some orchestrations are quite involving. While those with Verdian and Puccini the preferences will find this work that frustrates, enjoys to one likes him Richard Straus, Bartok, Mahler and Wagner (which has influenced strongly this work) will be pleasantly suprised.
While ossia an available only version , one everywhere the quality of a register is very good.

Formed: CD of Audio That is one to do of a work, virtually unperformed his first years of hundred (this reconstruction was premiered in 1998, marking a centenary of his composition), this dips was to be the class of Arthurian 'Cycle of Coverage' ( soyerlin'was a prime minister of the planned trilogy) ossia the collaboration among the scion of the majority of excluyente of banking house of Big Bretagna (Francis Burdett Money Coutts - the bank of a Royal Family) and the Spanish composer? Odd! Anything more this @@subject , is the radically change some perception of Albeniz, the one who, with an exception of an a lot of cycle of piano Iberia', is known really for the handful of generic Spanish-flavoured encores this looks to seat like this easily in the to piano likes him the electrical guitar. Well, this error is shattered here.
A predominant influence in this music is Wagner; one opening of a prelude spends in the dark world a lot afterwards to one opening of iegfried', but like progress of work, Wagner is filtered by means of the French sensibility, so that has strong echoes to composers likes him Shoe, Of Indy, and occasionally (probably coincidentally) English composers, Elgar, or collected included Delius. Then it has the triumphant choral number in an end of Law 1, with which Arthur there is pulled a sword out of a bone, ossia the rousing precursor of a class of Korngold-the epic flavoured of Hollywood - irresistible. One valuing is coloreado and resourceful, but very weighed in of the places - I can not imagine some singers that is audible in the alive action. Of Spanish flavour, as you would expect of this composer, there is less, although it surfaces in a last law, in the buoyant serious of Saracen dances - tugged to an action some suspects to leave a composer his boss.
A libretto - ooch! Ossia A question . Almost each one another line is quotable - alas, for some wrong reasons. It is couched in one the majority of fake-fustian archaic tongue, which gives increase to some real howlers: sad, can not resist: "Or fate uncouth! Or Prohibition and bale! Or dolorous Leaf" - "In Maytime, in Maytime/ a lusty lover playtime - is prankt with green and yellows;/ and bird with bird enfellows" - and a prize: "Nay, nay/Morgan-he-Fay". Worse, is written throughout in the diagram of rigid rhyme, which Albeniz miraculously heads to subvert the plot of a time, but occasionally done a vowel writing very square. A narrative is opened-finished - two more the works were to follow, which is the little unsatisfying.
How is a masterpiece ossia, date of the his reconstructor the one who is also a manager of this action, Jose Of Eusebio, "allocated to result part of an international operatic repertoire of entity"? Well, any enough. Albeniz Uses Wagner system of by means of composing for motives: A question of first order is that these motives am not really memorable enough, fault of melodic profile that it is in abundance when Albeniz leaves his hair down and writes dances or of the pieces that is numbers of neighbours. It was certainly the promising operatic composer and has a lot of vivid moments, but he crucially carece of the sense of proportion in climax. For example, in a first law when several knights look for to pull a sword of a bone, a music a lot really differentiates among one has failed tentativas and Arthur has achieved one. When Arthur finally he, a music there is at all has left to reserve to give the real feeling of culmination. A lot a vocal writing is quite general, any melodically memorable, but does not think you can blame a composer for that, when some words owe that dipped is like this terrible. But try a ravishing final of Law 2 (CD 2 clues 1-2), some dances, and in fact the majority of Law 3, and a conclusion to a first law (CD 1 clues 24) and will listen something very special, with his own indefinable flavour.
Am not sure an action a work of the utmost favours. An orchestral touching is a lot intrepid and on-front - a writing of trumpet is really exhilarating, this in spite of there is ragged moments - the majority of annoyingly in some enormous gung-have heart in an end of Law 1. A heart is mite recessed in time. A mould is the mix : Spanish, French and English that pause, and some emphases vary, which is more than distracts in time. Any that one wants to listen this libretto too clearly - I request yes does better he sung in Spanish, - or in any tongue any one an own audience. A swipe of entity is a fusion of Placido now venerable Sunday like youthful Rey Arthur: it is in wonderfully fresh, ringing voice, is the shame that a lot his music is not a plus memorable or vocally thankful. Carlos Alvarez sings with full and fat emphasis yours that Merlin, gives gravitas the the majority of Wotan-like music in a bookmark. Some native English speakers in a mould, Ana-Maria Martinez, Christopher Maltman and Jane Henschel inevitably aim a rest up with an identification added with a text. Jane Henschel, sings Morgan he Fay with any aplomb, although his results of voice a lot tight in a cup of a stave, with to quaver to distract - give it, as has some the dramatic explosions are: they would owe that be funny Bumbry was retreat for east a. Ana-Maria Martinez is the mine new voice, and has the fantastically fresh bell and copy individually in a cast of mussel is 8 counter -gnomes of tenor, which has taken my wins up for the only octet - in a chance his all sing neighbouring for roughly 40 as - the majority of disappointing!
This certainly is that it interests enough to cost possessing, and your opinion of Albeniz will change. Calm also will listen some extremely good-looking music. Incidentally, they are not to clear of a booklet to program 'Launcelot', a second of some three works exists or no, looks inconclusive in this point.

Formed: Audio CD As the classical music and lover of work, and like the enthusiast of Spanish music, am looked forward to to listen this world-wide-premiere emission of a Albeniz the work has thought once stray--especially one in a subject of King Arthur. This in spite of, after listening his entirely, chair to say that ossia a Spanish work I probably never really propiciado, and say that like the auditor the one who included is beginning to like Green "Falstaff", no his the majority of accessible work.
There is absolutely at all bad with any flange, one touching or one in leader, except a fact that hardly the word can be comprised reason one all-the Spanish mould is singing in English! Some choral and the orchestral passages are quite impressive and is (mine) easily some better attributes of a music. A arias, this in spite of, his like this the cross among Debussy and Wagner, a class of music that any really melodies of looks, so only endlessly flowing the note sung. This, to good sure, will impress Wagner lovers as well as defenders of Debussy glorious but extremely difficult work "Pelleas and Melisande". "Merlin" It is clearly any for lovers of Mozart, Beethoven, Green, Puccini, Handel,Gershwin, or included Berlioz. It is the demanding work that is not "catchy", "melodic", or included moving. It is a class of musical composition that one can admire, but never really like or amour, and although it love to the work likes them Stravinsky "A Rite to Jump", you can have the hard time with east a.
This in spite of, Placido Sunday, the one who was a force of behaviour for behind that taken this work has registered, and the one who, Manager like this Artistic of a Work of the Angels, is fulfilling wonderful feats in re-discovering a lot the time forgotten and/or the Spanish work has neglected, is to be fill. It sings a function of King Arthur here--excellently, and manager Jose of Eusebio deserves enormous credit to fulfil a reconstruction of this work. I sincerely hope Sunday will follow up with other Spanish works.

Formed: Audio CD I will not squander the time of a reader with the long description, so only will say that ossia stunning music accompanying poetry quite take, but says the good history when all is said and fact. It does not find a difficult work at all, and the compare to to one likes of Massenet and Wagner admirers the one who also found a lot to enjoy in Glorious Work, way of Parigi.
According to that an action, is the upper notch , with folks likes Placido Sunday that sings his guts was so that all the world wins. An orchestra like this to to the sounds like to them is having the time adds, reason this music is, well, serious in a way of the episode of the hike of Estrella adds: Campy and that satisfies so reason and in spite of a camp, with a lot of dresses and of the big gestures.

Will not squander the time of a reader with the long description, so only will say that ossia stunning music accompanying poetry quite take, but says the good history when all is said and fact. It does not find a difficult work at all, and the compare to to one likes of Massenet and Wagner admirers the one who also found a lot to enjoy in Glorious Work, way of Parigi.
According to that an action, is the upper notch , with folks likes Placido Sunday that sings his guts was so that all the world wins. An orchestra like this to to the sounds like to them is having the time adds, reason this music is, well, serious in a way of the episode of the hike of Estrella adds: Campy and that satisfies so reason and in spite of a camp, with a lot of dresses and of the big gestures.
Ossia The register adds when you are has spent is gone in Wagner, no in a way to auditorily toils enough for Italians or French, this in spite of not feeling folksy enough for Vaughan Williams.

Well, a libretto is poor (taking far too many liberties in a legend is based on although ossia in no way an only reason) and yes a Spanish mould goes the little too many R is when singing in English (which is an original tongue was written in); but with this said, found quell'quite enjoyable. Some hearts are stirring, a music is exciting and some orchestrations are quite involving. While those with Verdian and Puccini the preferences will find this work that frustrates, enjoys to one likes him Richard Straus, Bartok, Mahler and Wagner (which has influenced strongly this work) will be pleasantly suprised.
While ossia an available only version , one everywhere the quality of a register is very good.

Formed: CD of Audio Ossia the must has if you are not familiarised with zarzuela (the response of Madrid to the operetta of Vienna). It is the good combination of arias sung for Caballe in good-looking voice and joined for his tenor of husband Bernabe Marti partorisca some duets. A CD comes with translations partorisca any Spaniards that pause that a lot will improve your satisfaction.
Caballe Is in like this beautful voice like this never and feels house with this no very registering repertoire. She no overindulge in his another frequent time "floatiness" and it is a lot expressive throughout. Thogh Sometimes when some coloratura is required tends partorisca fall some consonants that blurs his enunciation of some words. Has the habit of of the east of his registers of work although it is not like this bad likes Sutherland.
Marti Is the good tenor but is not in one joins same like Caballe. It is for this that launches taken never recognition although he the little register whith his woman, likes Bellini " it Pirates". His is the lyrical tenor, the little throaty but with good projection of a sound. It touches the little pulled in a "passagio" but the paste all some notes. More importantly, compensates partorisca his lack of polish of vowel with in of the llamas impersonations of his characters. Ardent and that burns in some, offered and caressing in another. To the respect is better that his woman the one who is the little more wrist like hidding for behind his vocal resources. As have enjoyed especially some a lot of and varied duets in this register.
Strongly recommended.

A renaissance of Isaac Albeniz the works constitutes an admirable task, and this subject of Henry Clifford is the addition of entity to a catalogue. I can be in a minority, this in spite of, when I find this work even more that satisfies in general that Decca is register very achieved of Merlin (this in spite of that that registers sported a same mould stronger). Henry Clifford is dipped during a War of some Roses and is, so that Merlin, in English - in fact, like this in Merlin, a music is surprisingly devoid of a Spanish folk element of music that characterises Albeniz music of piano partorisca chance. But a music is any less ravishing partorisca that.

Henry Clifford, which has been composed in 1893-95, has not directed partorisca retain it toehold in a repertoire. It concealed it is not really the surprise - Albeniz the collaborator was once again a millionaire banker Francis Burdett Money-Coutts (good, as this was one first tentativa - Merlin is 11 years later), and a quality of a libretto is, says, a bit variable (but no really like this consistently horrible likes a bit the commentators have alleged, especially is able to take something of an ironic distance). In any case, a work, composed in the fashionable drawing in Glorious work and Wagner, is full of beautiful, soaring arias, rousing conjoint and stirringly evocative, superbly the orchestral passages marked (in fact, a gorgeous the orchestral passages so only can be the majority of glorious parts of a work). A third law is musically that pause a tautest, but some premiers two is this in spite of more immediately enjoyable.

Among a consistently very launched of soloists, Achilles Ascia underlines with him ravishingly sung, splendidly has characterised action. Among some other functions, a sometimes remarks that some singers are the little attractive (the vocal parts are in no way easy). If of the males to find like this better in general, is this in spite of probably mostly because of a fact that his functions are some pocolos more convincingly written (some of a text, especially the text sung for some women, is in fact appallingly beast) and a music slightly more skillfully writing for some voices. A register is live it a, but there is no intruding noises, and a sound is warm and clear although some soloists are not always perfectly balanced relative to the each one like this another. In general, this in spite of, and in spite of some caveats, ossia that records that ought to be listened and treasured for any lover of late romantic work.

Ossia The World-wide Premiere register of the complete rendition of Isaac Albeniz the music is sung in English how has been feigned. Directed for Jose of Eusebio,that directs an Orchestra Sinfonica of Madrid, has found all That look for in work; a lyricism is Verdinesque,leaving rich,lush and romantic orchestration to sustain a text and finally has strong Wagnerian-like this of the passages to reinforce some elements plus very dramatic data this work the only musical depth. This the wonderful work that contains the melodies have accompanied for solids and rich orchestral flourishes troughout. I have listened this work for a first time and compared of a principle. Regarding a flange is solid and expressive. It is always reason to celebrate when the stray work is presented. In this chance Isaac Albeniz 'Henry Clifford' is definitelly the value that possesses. I listen his thickness for his emotional melodic bookmark and strongly recommend this work to all the lovers of work.

A complete rcording of Albeniz the seed of work Jimenez was a chance partorisca be enthusiastically given the reception to, especially to this familiar so only with a registered excerpts of orchestral music of a work. This in spite of, any plaudits partorisca Deutsche Grammophon partorisca his undertaken quickly evaporated when listening to a register. Left me in the first place say that Albeniz the lovely bookmark is sweet and melancholy but to the equal that could describe Seed like the 'lyric comedy' escaped me. I have struggled partorisca find anything particularly comedic in a piece, at least in this register. It is the quite sad, wistful the history based in the famous Spanish novel. This notwithstanding Albeniz plumped for the libretto in resupplied English for a rich banker Francis Burdett Money-Coutts. Money-Coutts was certainly any poet and his libretto is excruciatingly execrable; quite impossible to read is such terrible distracts it doggerel and in an end has given up trying and so only concentrated on listening to a music. Regarding a fusion in a 2004/2005 register is odd to say a less with the variety of emphasis that can be more than dips era. The Sunday is in good voice and transmits a function of a -be seminarian Gentleman Luis effectively in spite of his 64 years. But those who in the earth has thought to launch an American soprano Carol Vaness in a function of title? It was the disastrous election . In 53 years of has aged was vocally touch very displaced sells for date. It transmits at all of a coquettishness of Seeds and in of the sounds to time to the equal that could be Mother of Sunday . Ella shrieks was and his wobbly vibrated is like this width like Glorious Canyon. It does for a lot of that annoying listen. A register has been done to Madrid and he so that has a lot of Spanish very sopranos those who could have done an excellent work reason has done DG not selecting an of them for a function? A rest of a mould is acceptable, especially some Spanish members those who look to have a measure of Albeniz music. An Orchestra of the Communidad of Madrid - a resident orchestra in a Theatre of the Zarzuela - games superbly and one the majority of a bookmark. My three stars are given for a music, an orchestra and Sunday. Any praise that DG deserved to register a work is sadly outweighed for his inexplicable fusion of Vaness which frankly ruins an endeavour.

Bis vor kurzem wusste ich nicht, dass AlbÚniz auch Opern komponiert Hat. Ich War zunÀchst skeptisch, aber ich habe give Kauf dieser Aufnahme nicht bereut. Die Musik hat typisch spanischen Charakter - wie the man is von give Klavier- und Orchesterwerken give Komponisten kennt. (Gleich im Vorspiel hört Man eine leidenschafliche Melodies, die dann spÀter wiederkehrt.)
Die Handlung give Oper ist etwas platitudinous und findet sich Ă€hnlich in unzĂ€hligen Barockopern: ein Ă€lterer Mann eine junge Frau heiraten, die jedoch von seinem Sohn geliebt wird. GroßzĂŒgig verzichtet er auf seinen Anspruch. Yesterday wird Give Ganze dadurch verschĂ€rft, dass give Sohn Priester werden und zwischen weltlicher und göttliche Liebe hin- und hergerissen ist. Die Schlussszene ist hochdramatisch, ob Seed Selbstmord begeht, bleibt offen. Recht ĂŒberzeugend ist Quotes Charakterisierung give sehr resoluten HaushĂ€lterin Antonona dipped ihrer stereotypen Wendung 'Or 'Tona, is the prophet '.

Quotes Originalsprache give Oper ist Englisch. Of the mag zunĂ€chst merkwĂŒrdig erscheinen, hĂ€ngt aber damit zusammen, dass AlbĂ©niz sich lĂ€ngere Zeit in Inghilterra aufhielt und einen englischen MĂ€zen hatte, gives to give the text gives Oper schrieb.

The data Interprets, allen voran PlĂĄcido Sunday, sind ausgezeichnet.

Give Beiheft enthĂ€lt give englische Libretto, aber keine deutsche Übersetzung.

Wer spanische Musik liebt, Gives erwartet yesterday ein großer Hörgenuß.

Seed Jiménose postdates Albeniz Wagnerian big work Henry Clifford and predates his Wagnerian big work Merlin. Like this opposed to some other two works, Seed Jiméthe nose in fact touches quite Spanish - with tunes and rhythms that Spanish of sound. It is therefore slightly that has surprised that has found he less than obliges that a two fully act any Spaniards mentioned (this in spite of in general included a fashion of Seeds is relatively cosmopolitan). Also it can attack some as curious that this work is dipped in English - once again Albeniz librettist was Francis Burdett Money-Coutts, and once one more libretto contains some separates concealed is, says, of questionable merit (although this time around Money-Coutts has had Juan was novel Side to use like the base). This register is billed likes first never complete register, which depends, I supposition, on like look in him - of Eusebio has produced the version that use the own early manuscripts of a composer (the others register has used the versions have prepared for Sorozábal and Josep Has the habit of, respectively).

A work takes place in a course of a day and concerns an amour of a youngster, rich widow Seed for a priest that aspires Gentleman Luis of Vargas. It is quite uninteresting and no better for Money-Coutts is sometimes quite helpless adaption. Musically, Some the Spanish influences are clearly present but filtered by means of Wagner (p. p.ej. leitmotifs) And verismo. A result is quite wordy - has passages and good tunes but rests seldom to jump to full-soufflé arias. So much in an end of a work an auditor easily can feel the little short-has changed. For all a romantic gesturing, some climaxes are missing. In spite of there is very memorables passages here also, but like this with some other works Albeniz is in his better in a fantastically marked, purely orchestral section.

And an orchestral touching is glorious; warm and lush and splendidly paced and shaped for of Eusebio. Some the contributi choral are in a same level; gorgeous, rich and appropriately dramatic. Considering some singers, well, the Sunday is like this youthful touching like this never - agree, is touching the young man that aspires to priesthood, and done his sound of young character. In fact, ossia the splendid action of the as it has to that it is one of some singers add of all the times - fantastically shaped and phrased, full of character, heat and sweetness. Carol Vaness Is well resupply a right character and variety, but unfortunately a voice does not bend to his intentions; it is too often wobbly and less than beautiful - but I desire to underline that a lot it is done on partorisca in of the terms of characterisation. Some the smallest functions are in general splendid, with the special praise that goes to Jane that convinces never Henschel. The presentation is excellent and a neighbour is recommended in any lover of work of this period - but Henry Clifford would owe that be one first priority .
