The men who were recklessly curious

Huguet, Così fan tutte © Matthias Baus
Between a superb ensemble cast and Daniel Barenboim’s perfectly-judged musical direction, it was a thrilling opening to the Staatsoper’s new season

A Misremembered Past

Huguet, Le nozze di Figaro © 2021 by Matthias Baus
For its first run of live performances, the production benefitted from both the buzz of a real audience and a generally superior cast to that of the première.Vincent Huguet’s staging, however, remained aggressively bland and perplexingly uninspired, a triumph of sets and costumes over ideas and characters.

Kurt Weill y los Estados Unidos

Kurt Weill's America © 2021 by Oxford University Press
Estoy convencido de que el gran arte de todas las épocas era actual, en el sentido de que estaba destinado no a la eternidad, sino al tiempo en que se originó, o al menos al futuro próximo, a cuya formación debía contribuir.

The full extent of Granados’s genius will remain elusive for some time to come

Enrique Granados en contexto © 2020 by FIMTE
While hardly a ‘Spanish Craze’ there was nevertheless a marked increase in performances of music by Spanish composers in England in the wake of Granados’s death, a movement that undoubtedly paved the way for the spectacular success of El sombrero de tres picos in London in 1919.

Cold Passions

Francesconi, Quartett © Monika Rittershaus, 2020
Although Luca Francesconi’s Quartett production had undoubtedly been scheduled long before the first wave of the COVID pandemic, the opera, a claustrophobic and occasionally harrowing adaptation of Heiner Müller’s stage play of the same name, had an edge of lockdown madness that made it especially timely.

'Requiem für einen jungen Dichter', de B. A. Zimmermann (3/6)

Ludwig Wittgenstein © 2020 by CC
Se ha discutido mucho acerca del motivo por el que Zimmermann inserta, al comienzo del 'Requiem', la cita de las 'Investigaciones lógicas' de Wittgenstein, probablemente, la mayor en extensión, si exceptuamos las citas litúrgicas, de la Misa de Difuntos y de la Misa Ordinaria.

El fin justifica los medios

Al igual que ya hiciera con Serse, Maxim Emelyanychev revela un olfato dramático certero, una dirección musical contrastada, matizada y, sobre todo, teatral.Cuando Händel encuentra una batuta que secunda sus intenciones el resultado es imbatible, algo posible gracias a Il Pomo d’Oro, una orquesta brillante y homogénea, espléndida en las casi cuatro horas del registro de principio a fin.

Además de márketing y musicología, música

Alicia Amo © Michal Novak / Maestranza
Nereydas ofreció una lectura clara, fluida, extremadamente musical en aspectos dinámicos y tímbricos.Quedó de manifiesto que Illán es capaz de analizar y "re-crear" toda la música que cae en sus manos y que, además, conecta con cariño y naturalidad con su público.

Genre Exercises

Szifron, Samson et Dalila © 2019 by Matthias Baus
The production that emerged was a vast, big-budget throwback, an opera done up in a style of filmmaking that had reached its zenith some six decades ago.If the evening was entertaining, it was due more to its dream cast of principals and the monumental musical direction of Daniel Barenboim than the staging’s slavish celebration of spectacle

Descriptions of a Struggle

Kosky: The Bassarids © Monika Ritterhaus, 2019
Approaches to tragedy have varied considerably in the time since Euripides, but the fundamental goal has remained largely consistent: one emerged from 'The Bassarids' slightly dazed, dismayed perhaps by the immutability of fate, but strangely elated from the experience of having watched it unfold.
