I find the opera and semi-opera of Henry Purcell to be utterly delightful and diverting--a perfect upper when you are cheerless, the tonic for your gin, and as in this one a laugh when you need it most. They are, at times, deliberately bawdy and humorous here, think the Song of the Drunken Poetsometimes so sad that they will touch your soul think the end of Dido and Aeneasand often musically peculiar to the modern ear think the truly remarkable aria of the Cold Genius in King Arthur.
Strange marvels abound throughout these works. Harnoncourt's recording of the incidental music and aria designed to accompany a play closely based on A Midsummer Night's Dream is brilliantly clear Into The Pentagram (Samael Cover) - Omen Filth - Opus Sanguinarium often startling.
The voices of Bonney and McNair are so beautiful your teeth will hurt and your eyes will sting. I'm the first to admit that baroque opera aren't for everyone--not long ago, I never thought Purcell's endeavors would interest me.
I find Gluck--even though he is more early Classical than Baroque--to be a complete snore in comparison to Purcell. Give this recording a whirl if you have even a slight interest in Baroque or English music. This isn't the sonorous mathematics of Bach or the trilling brass of Corelli. There is something distinctly English and cheerful about this composer of the only meaningful opera in that language before Britten.
With such a super-star cast of singers, all you need is a conductor that gets the humour and to my surprise i admit Harnoncourt delivers it with style. To be honest, the style is a bit on the Germanic side, especially when it comes to the I.
K. Mathiesen* And A. H. Mathiesen* - Baroque Music For Reco conducting, but who cares? Mind you, this is not a recording you can put in the background, you get front-row seats and it does require your attention.
Format: Audio CD. This is by all accounts the best recorded version of "The Fairy Queen"; its energy and commitment invested is apparent even from Harnoncourt's sharp intake Walk In Shadows - Cakebuilder - Feeding The Worms EP (File) breath on the upbeat before the start of every number and the sheer attack of his orchestra. Furthermore, we hear an assembly I. K. Mathiesen* And A.
H. Mathiesen* - Baroque Music For Reco very fine voices, led by the ethereal Barbara Bonney and the almost equally delectable Sylvia McNair.
Elisabeth von Magnus has a pretty voice but her English is occluded and sometimes unintelligible, whereas Dutch bass Robert Holl is highly idiomatic, even if his two humorous scenes are rather heavy going, as the comedy is of the broad, rustic "ooh-arr" kind. Anthony Michaels-Moore is very accomplished in a role which does not over-stretch his mellifluous baritone Although he is credited as a bass and Laurence Dale and Michael Chance are as neat and musical as you could wish.
There is much I. K. Mathiesen* And A. H. Mathiesen* - Baroque Music For Reco and atmospheric music here and although the two hours of incidental music seems at times to be competing with, rather than complementing, Shakespeare's play, it is highly entertaining.
We need to remember that the Bard's text was hardly regarded as sacrosanct and the I. K. Mathiesen* And A. H. Mathiesen* - Baroque Music For Reco was upon spectacle and whimsy, hence the inclusion of a "Monkey's' Dance" and a "Chinese Pantomime" towards the end and many extended divertissements which would have held up and distracted from the play itself; the whole thing was an anonymous and very adaptation, devised and performed in the courtly masque tradition without much regard for artistic integrity.
Few of the words in the musical numbers owe much to Shakespeare; they are very much of their era and largely anodyne. Certainly for me the I. K. Mathiesen* And A. H. Mathiesen* - Baroque Music For Reco consist of Bonney's and McNair's singing; the former in particular has a voice of unearthly beauty enhanced by pellucid diction. There is a real period Hammer (Todo Por El Aire)(Chure Churele Remix) - Various - Techno Stomp 6 to Harnoncourt's account here and I cannot imagine the music being better performed.
The stage music of Henry Purcell is part of a colorful period in England's history. It is in five acts each consisting of songs, some sung by groups and some as solos. Purcell eschewed Shakespeare's words in favor of an anonymous libretto loosely based on the situations of Shakespeare's 'Midsummers Night's Dream'.
It would be difficult to deduce plot or Grave - Concentus Musicus Of Denmark from the libretto alone, and although the music is a continuous joy, it is an imaginative feat to think of this work as a convincing dramatic narrative today. The First Act shows us fairies pinching and tormenting a drunken poet, while the Second Act meditates on the misunderstandings of the lost pair of lovers in Shakepeare's play, and rhapsodises on night, sleep and mystery.
Most of the songs in this semi-opera have been recorded by singers on solo albums, many of them being countertenors. See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editions Price.
