WORLD OPERA STARS



Those Magnifi cent Men On The High Cs

Just like “soprano”, “alto”, or “bass”, the word “tenor” comes from Latin (from the verb “tenere” – to hold) and refers neither to the voice’s compass nor potential, but to its position in the four-part harmony system. The tenor is the central voice which “holds” the leading theme of a piece, while other voices draw their arabesques around it. As a matter of fact, we still talk about the “tenor” of somebody’s statement (its contents and meaning)… Thus, there are no extremities, no display; on the contrary, “tenor” is the golden mean, it is peace and temperance.

Giuseppe Verdi

GIOVANNA D’ARCO


 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

there is no such thing as a “bad” opera by Verdi. Even the worst of them (and each of us has his or her candidate…) will captivate the listener with the energy of musical narration, inspire with melodious invention, charm with instrumental detail. Each will also contain a gem, an aria, a duet, or a whole sequence to surpass everything written by the Master of Busseto’s rivals at the time.

Does it mean that we rate Giovanna d’Arco (première: Milan, La Scala, 15 Feb. 1845) among the composer’s “weakest” operas? By no means, and there are more reasons for this than just our conviction that the very question lacks sense. Like Haydn with his symphonies and string quartets, Verdi wrote operas all his life. Each of them constitutes not only an indispensable phase in his development, but also a step forward (1844: The Two Foscari), and a door open to the next stage of his career (1845: Alzira; 1846: Attila). With the brilliant title role tailored for one of the greatest opera singers of the time, Erminia Frezzolini, her two wonderful duets (with her beloved, king Charles, in act I, and with her father, Giacomo, in act III), spectacular crowd scenes, and brisk rhythms, the opera’s première proved a great success. It was played sixteen more times, and Milan organ grinders quickly added “hits” from the new piece to their repertoire. For the next quarter of the century, Giovanna d’Arco enjoyed a certain degree of popularity on European stages. Soon, however, it was to share the fate of other early operas by the author of Rigoletto, i.e. to fall into oblivion.

I believe it was caused not so much by its shortcomings, but… by our sullenness, for at the end of the 19th century we began to judge historical operas using criteria typical of the world of science rather than this of entertainment. Based upon a very simplifi ed tragedy by Schiller, the story of Saint Joan of Arc who falls in love with the beautiful king, gets betrayed by her father, and does not end at the stake, but dies a hero’s death on the battlefi eld, stood no chance. Unaware of great loss, we welcomed such works with ridicule or indignation.

Our production is the fi rst Polish staging of the opera with Polish cast (albeit with an Italian tenor cast in the role of king Charles VII). The audience of the Poznań Philharmonic has heard the concert version of Giovanna d’Arco, which grants the listeners’ imagination unadulterated freedom. In an era when directors’ infl ated egos mixed with stale prejudices towards the genre have them mock the libretto and show disdain for the music (as a result of which they often miss the meaning and style of a piece, i.e. its deepest identity), the concert performance lends it a new freshness. It is like a live recording: music resounds here and now; we can, however, close our eyes and in the privacy of our imagination, for our own purpose, create the theatrical ideal…

Franz Xaver Scharwenka

PIANO CONCERTO NO. 4
POLISH NATIONAL DANCES


He was born in the middle of the XIXth century in Szamotuły. His father was German, and his mother – Polish. He completed his primary and secondary education in Szamotuły and Poznan, but he studied music in Berlin, where the Scharwenkas moved when Franz Xaver was a teenager. It is also there, where he began his career as a pianist and a composer and soon conquered Europe and South America (his opera Mataswintha was performed at the Metropolitan Opera). His works are well-know across the world, however, in Poland they are only being rediscovered.

Even though Franz Xaver Scharwenka always stressed his German descent, in his music one can hear the rhythms of mazurkas, obereks, krakowiaks and polonaises which points to Polish traditions and the passion for Frederic Chopin’s music as the sources of his inspiration. It will suffice to buy his latest album published by Naxos to find out about it on one’s own. Scharwenk’s compositions performed by the pianist and the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra under the conduction of Łukasz Borowicz were recorded at the University Hall at Adam Mickiewicz University – the concert hall of the Poznan Philharmonic.

FOLLOWING THE CHOPIN’S FOOSTEPS IN GREATER POLAND PROVINCE


Frederic Chopin spent the first half of his life in his homeland, while the other one in Paris. Therefore, Warsaw and Paris share this unique existence, even though those two milieus, in which Chopin led his life, bear hardly any resemblance. Chopin – as an artist and a person – matured in the first half of his life – this is when his sensitivity and personality were shaped. We possess vast knowledge of Chopin´s relations with Warsaw and Mazovia Province. Little do we know, however, of his contacts with Greater Poland Province, even though they played a significant role in his life and works. Thanks to this DVD one may follow Chopin´s footsteps in Greater Poland Province and discover places he or she has never reached before.
