Lunan, Lyndsay. Lyndsay Lunan, Kirsty A. Reads Scott and Burns as complicit in the authoring of a national mythology, albeit in different ways. They should not, however, be understood as static opposing monoliths but as symbolic representations of a dynamic process of cultural negotiation in Scottish literature. Lurz, John. Calls attention to the ways in which the reader is invited to think about seeing in The Heart of Mid-Lothian. In Belgrade Nabucco was presented for the first time on June 1, It was in the repertoire for years, being always the most attended performance.
The same state of euphoria about Nabucco caught all the theatres in Yugoslavia except Zagreb, where it was not staged after the Second World War. Music from Nabucco attracts us with its power, vivid, almost wild rhythm, exceptionally successful chorus parts, grandiose ensembles and beautiful arias. But the great mastership expressed in Othello or Falstaff could not be expected from young Verdi.
Trio brings certain appeasing of passions, but chorus turns everything back to the beginning. Appearance of the huge ensemble, followed by solos of Nabucco and Abigaille, presents novelty in the development of opera. Chorus powerful final part in the first act attracts us with its rhythm, movement, and determination. Her aria is very demanding for soprano, and her interaction with chorus wins over the audience. A chorus of Levites interacted with Ismaille is again rhythmical. The second act finale, with the use of imitation surpasses everything previously written for opera stage.
Scene with Nabucco and Abigaille in the third act has to be listened from a bel canto perspective.
Final scene of Abigaille is made after Bellini Norma , to the extent of absolute resemblance. Finale comes with festive chorus and famous solo scenes. In a word, Nabucco is a very demanding opera for both soloists and chorus and it can be staged only in the opera houses with real vocal capacities. Konstantin Vinaver. He studied at the Academy of Music and Theatre in Hamburg. He has received numerous composition commissions from the famous institutions such as: Hamburg State Opera, the Frankfurt Alte Oper and the Ensemble Scharoun comprised of musicians of The Berliner Philkarmoniker and invitations to Zurich, Basel and Berlin.
Producers such as Herbert Wernicke, Christoph Marthaler and Anna Viebrock collaborated with Harneit in the border-area of new music theatre. Moreover, Johannes Harneit has been music director of the Leipzig Sinfonietta consisting of musicians of the Gewandhausorchester since autumn From he is a General manager of the Balkan Opera Network-association. His professional credits include: R. Fun acting, because he made me do really terrible things on stage, we had fun rehearsing it. Everybody was afraid of me! It was pretty nice. Also, it was high and low, I had a combination there between opera and musical technique.
His music is lyrical but acid, if you want to describe it. He creates wonderful atmosphere. There is a lot of power and a lot of responsibility for the singer. And he writes for the voice, for a singer with classical technique. Moll Hackabout is the harlot of the title. You are also a noted Mozartean stylist. Some noted opera stars, such as Birgit Nilsson and Siegfried Jerusalem, said they found singing Mozart to be healthy for their voices. What are your thoughts on this? You have to be aware of every note and how you sing it, and you have to have good and clean technique.
Singing Mozart is good for the brain, first.
A Delightful "Carmen" in the Suburbs
When one looks at your repertoire, one sees as many roles in Italian or French as in German. As recently as a decade ago, there was a much more rigid stereotyping of singers. Italian singers were supposed to sing the music of Italian composers, and German singers were supposed to sing operas by German or Austrian composers. But that no longer seems to be the case.
Did you ever experience problems with opera houses outside the German-speaking countries casting you in Italian or French roles? I was very young then, when we had this conversation. They will throw boos and tomatoes at you. So, we thought that a German singing that role over there, would never happen. Germany, specially, is such a complex language. In English you have one adjective expressing a feeling, but in German for the same feeling you have five different ones, and each treat a different aspect of it, and you have to really understand it to be able to render these nuances.
But nowadays, all singers are very much in touch with the importance of language. When they sing, they transport a lot of information through the language, so everybody is very keen on having proper pronunciation and knowing what is going on behind each word. You need to know every single word.
It is not necessary to speak the language but you must know every word, not only in direct translation, but also in what lies behind the word with its layers of meaning. When I prepare Russian songs -- I have Rachmaninoff in my Lieder recitals at the moment -- I take Russian coaches and I want to know everything that is behind each word. I need to actually feel the country and its people, in the writing. I mean, you have to have some talent for that, and the time to learn. But some people have complained that this internationalization has come at the expense of stylistic authenticity.
Do you think that there is a risk that this will maybe homogenize too much the way people sing opera, so that singers will lose a bit of the Italianate style, or of the German style? It depends on which level you are thinking. If you are thinking The Metropolitan Opera, and Wiener Staatsoper, and Paris, and London, and Munich, really in these top houses, the top should happen and will happen. It all depends on us singers, how seriously we take everything, to keep that style well characterized and pure, and we should honor our coaches and our conductors who give us this knowledge. The teachers should keep and transmit this knowledge to the new generations of singers, so that it is not lost.
Almost any city or town of any size has a theater where operas and operettas are performed, and the smaller houses have been valuable training grounds for new singers. But the global economic troubles of the past several years have really hurt some houses. One thinks of the current situation at the Cologne Opera. What impact do you think the reduction in public funding to opera houses will have on the future of opera in Germany? At the Salzburg Festival, Alexander Pereira is actively pursuing public-private partnerships. Do you think more theaters in the German-speaking countries will move in this direction?
But it is undeniable that with the crisis, everybody should consider contacting private sponsors to keep this going. Art is food for the soul. How do you create empathy for such a character with the younger audience? But even if he did, her love is just so big that she sticks with this idea and wants to prove to her father that he will change. Probably he has told her, when she was alone with him in his palace and she finally realized that he was the Duke, some sort of idea that made her give in. In his earlier aria he says she is the girl that could have touched his heart.
He has some feelings for her. But yes, she has to turn and explain it to her father, and she is all tormented in that moment. I think even modern young women can relate to this moment that Gilda is going through. OL - You and French harpist Mr. Xavier de Maistre recorded a selection of Debussy songs for Sony, and your joint recital at the Baden Baden Festival was televised. How has your concert program developed since then in terms of the selection of material you perform? I try to do them as often as possible in recitals. But especially the melodies, and the French music with its elegance and purity, appeal to me.
It is like being a knight. You must be very popular there. You know, the opera world is small. How did you become involved with these organizations? Would you please tell us a little about the person Diana Damrau, how your personality is, and what you love to do besides opera and your family? I am very curious, I want to learn things. I want to get deeper into things.
I love movement.
