Roberto Gerhard - La Duena
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 2 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 809 Mb
Date: 1997

Schoenberg's Spanish pupil Roberto Gerhard, pulled off a substantive comedic success with his setting of Sheridan's THE DUENNA. The music, often gossamer light, perfectly suits the text, although it too has some very dark edges. At key points Gerhard inserts Spanish rhythms, and creates fascinating pseudo tonalities. This is a remarkably inventive score.
The performance is first rate. Veteran Richard Van Allen as Don Jerome is wonderful. (Is there anything that he doesn't sing well ?), Eric Roberts is really funny as Don Isaac, a role tinged with an anti-semitic slant in Sheridan's play, but almost totally missing in the opera. Susannah Glanville's dark voice really illuminates Donna Luisa's beautiful aria in the second act. Neill Archer is excellent as Don Antonio, a role once sung by Peter Pears.
Antoni Ros-Marba is the superb conductor. He really brings this tricky score to life.
The sound recording is excellent. There are excellent notes and a full libretto.
