Product description

Amazon.ca

Monteverdi's Orfeo grew out of early 17th-century experiments in the recreation of Greek drama. Academics at the time believed that the Greeks had a way of reciting their plays on different notes--and these learned men (and a few women) hoped to discover exactly how it had been done. The beginnings of opera, then, are to be found in speech and it is the glory of this recording that it understands that proposition perfectly. The drama of Orfeo is carried along in long stretches of recitative which have to convey all the nuances of the action: and while Jacobs never loses sight of the emotional drive, he still manages to create moments of reflection within the larger framework. Laurence Dale is a likeable Orfeo, but it is the supporting cast who shine--particularly Andreas Scholl, who fashions a moment of pure musical magic out of his recitative. Jennifer Larmore and Bernarda Fink are also in fine voice, and the orchestra plays with discipline and energy. --Warwick Thompson
