There is some available register of Shostakovich' Stepan Razin and some of them am very well in fact. Gerard Schwarz reading in Naxos comes partorisca import. This one of Ondine is special because present the Chinese bass-baritone, appointed Shenyang, those who has won recently the competition or two. I can not give any idea if his Russian is Russian, but a flange is a lot good. They are always state impressed for Ashkenazy registers of Russian repertoire this in spite of likes to think behind in timing when directed Rachmaninov here in a Concertgebouw. It directs this quite unknown and underrated Stepan a lot well and takes the brisk time that has dressed a good work. A register is a lot well, a rattle of percussion a lot very executed and a timps really his like this timps. Zoya Is all realism of patriotism more socialist. A hero, the part, the tear jerker and that concludes on timing rousing subject. So only the way to win of the money was that Dmitri has thought, thinks. A Continuazione in the Finnish subjects is all folkloristic nostalgia and same like the Dutch has recognised a Finn folk tunes. Probably they are quite casserole-European? Fact a lot very Ondine!

Has found An Execution of Stepan Razin really thrilling and stimulating and to good sure would recommend it. I do not know any one a lot in Shostakovich music or a writing of Yevtushenko but has thought a music and a poetry have done really I powerfully near. It have not listened to any of a music in a CD before and are so only a lover of the music interested but think that this would be the good introduction to Shostakovich music. I will not comment in some other pieces that there is enjoyed also. A main reason has bought this CD was to listen the Shenyang that sings a part of Stepan in an Execution of Stepan Razin. This in spite of, feels like the collaboration really add all some together artists that has finalised in this wonderful dramatic work. There is work adds in Shenyang interpretation. It transmits some emotions of a history with such beauty in some passages some calm and plus fill-throated sound in some more strident sections. More admire his capacity to sing in Russian which have to that be very defiant. They are the defender consecrated and find his extraordinary voice and the sound that sings like this significant. A work is augmented for a flange of a heart among some passages of solos and one in leader of Vladimir Ashkenazy door a poem the life. An orchestral touching is really thrilling, with contrast a lot of in way and dynamic, varying the fashions woven together, sometimes touching more Russian, sometimes like wild Arab dance with tambourines and sections of wind really quickly, sometimes more meditative and more like Britten or music of 20th century.
A CD comprises the boooklet with a poem in Russian and an English translation at the side, essential unless it comprises Russian. A poem has described to to a scene likes Razin is propiciado of his place of execution, his thoughts and that is going in around lucido. It is thought-causing and realism of mixes with symbolism and myth. Razin Is not fearful, same defiant rest after dead person likes to last bars of a music triumphantly proclaims.

ラフマニノフ(Sergei Rachmaninovs 1873-1943)の作品を精力的に啓発してきたアシュケナージ(Vladimir Ashkenazy 1937-)による、ラフマニノフの未完のオペラ、「モナ・ヴァンナ」の、ゲンナジー・ベロフ(Gennadi Belov 1939-)による補筆版の録音。モスクワ音楽院の学生からなるオーケストラと合唱団を指揮しての録音。キャストは以下の通り。

Monna Vanna; エヴゲニア・ドゥーシナ (Evgeniya Dushina ソプラノ)
Drive Column; ウラディミール・アフトモノフ (Vladimir Avtomonov バリトン)
Mark Column; ドミートリー・イヴァンチェイ (Dmitry Ivanchey テノール)
Borso; エドヴァルド・アルチュニャン (Edward Arutyunyan テノール)
Torello; ミハイル・ゴロフシキン (Mikhail Golovushkin バス)

また、併せてアシュケナージのピアノ伴奏とフィンランドのソプラノ歌手、ソイレ・イソコスキ(Soile Isokoski 1957-)の歌唱により、ラフマニノフの以下7編の歌曲が収録されている。

・15の歌曲から第10曲「わたしの窓べに」
・15の歌曲から第12曲「夜は悲しい」
・12の歌曲から第5曲「リラの花」
・6つの歌曲から第4曲「ねずみ捕りの男」
・14の歌曲から第14曲「ヴォカリーズ」
・12の歌曲から第7曲「ここは美しいところ」
・6つの歌曲から第5曲「夢(Dream)」

歌劇「モナ・ヴァンナ」の録音は2009年、7篇の歌曲の録音は2013年。

この未完のオペラは、ベロフによるオーケストレーションを経て、序曲と、3場からなる第1幕のみ、演奏可能なものとなった。配役も書いたが、オペラ自体が未完であるため、ストーリーは途中で終わり、消化されない。当盤は、「ロシア語による」初めての記録だそうである。

このような作品にも録音の機会を作り上げたアシュケナージの熱意は素晴らしいの一語。ラフマニノフ作品の普及と啓発という目的に、強い使命感を持つ同郷の演奏家の存在。これほど、作曲家にとって心強いものはないであろう。例えそれが作曲者の死後であっても。

さて、オペラであるが、オーケストレーションが別人の手によるものであるためか、ラフマニノフらしい濃厚のセンチメンタリズムやロシア的郷愁を深く感じさせるものとは言い難い。むしろ、作曲者を知らされずに聴いて、この曲の作曲者を言い当てることができる人は、ほとんどいないと思う。旋律も、聴いてすぐ覚えるような通俗性を持つものではなく、むしろレチタティーヴォ的なものが連続する印象で、完成されたとしても、クライマックスはもっと後半にあったのだろう。中で印象に残るのは1分ちょっとの短くも力強い序曲を経てすぐに劇が開始されるところと、第3場の女声コーラスによって導かれる、幻想的な雰囲気であろう。特に後者は美しい雰囲気をよく放出している。

モスクワ音楽院による管弦楽と合唱は、十分な安定感があり、高い技術レベルを感じさせる。オーケストラに、時により踏み込んだ響きがほしいところもあるが、これはアシュケナージの意図なのかもしれない。いずれにしてもバランスに富んだ音づくりは奏功している。歌手陣も、問題なくこなしている。

7編の歌曲が収録されているのが嬉しい。アシュケナージは、スウェーデンのソプラノ歌手、エリザベート・ゼーダーシュトレーム(Elisabeth Anna Soderstrom 1927-2009)と1974年から79年にかけてラフマニノフの歌曲を全曲録音しているので、すべて再録音となるが、今回は有名曲を中心にピックアップしてくれているので、聴き易い。

やはりアシュケナージのピアノ伴奏が美しい。最近、ピアノの録音機会が少なくなってしまったが、このような機会にでも聴けるのは嬉しいものだ。特に「リラの花」の静謐かつ耽美な色彩は見事。イソコスキの歌唱は、力強さがあり、私には、ヴォカリーズなどちょっと芯が強すぎるような印象なのだが、いかがだろうか?

とはいえ、立派な歌唱であることは間違いなく、アシュケナージのピアノと併せて、私たちフアンへの素敵な贈り物だと思う。

Rachmaninoff the works are a flavour has purchased . This small torso, unfinished for a composer is no different. Those while lush the melodies can be disappointed partorisca find the plus chaste speaking way any too far take out of Debussy Pelleas. If he never blossoms advance the real arias, his true rest presents a work effectively. One an exception to ossia his earlier work Aleko, the endeavour the traditional plus.

Finds this more satisfactory orchestration and more stylistically interesting that an alternative a presented in a register sooner. Ossia Also far upper in registering quality. Soile Isokoski The contributo can be considered like this farce and little more. It is quite decent, but probably will turn few bosses in this direction.

チョン・ミュンフン(Myung-Whun Chung 1953-)指揮 バスティーユ歌劇場管弦楽団、合唱団 1992年録音

内容が多岐にわたっており、しかもいずれも一般的によく聴かれる曲とは言い難い。ショスタコーヴィチ特有の悲劇性やダークな雰囲気を好む人でなければ、聴いていてむしろ心が萎えるところが大きいかもしれない。

メインは、チョン・ミュンフン指揮による歌劇「ムツェンスク郡のマクベス夫人」である。この歌劇は、ショスタコーヴィチがソ連政府から批判される大きなきっかけとなったものだ。ストーリーは、主人公のエカテリーナを中心に描かれる。エカテリーナは、使用人セルゲイに性交を強いられたことから、逆にセルゲイを忘れられなくなり、その不義を咎める身内を毒殺していく。しかし、その罪がついに暴かれ、セルゲイともどもシベリアに流刑となる。シベリアでセルゲイに裏切られたエカテリーナは悲嘆に暮れて自ら命を絶つというもの。激しい性描写のある歌劇であったこともあり、その扱いに政治が介入したことになる。

このオペラは優れたショスタコーヴィチの管弦楽書法と、暗くも悲しい旋律の美しさにより、現代では作曲者の代表作の一つとされている。チョン・ミュンフンのバランスの良い音響設計が秀逸。

アシュケナージがピアノを担い、3つの歌曲集が収録されている。アレクサンドル・ブロークによる7つの詩は、独唱とピアノ三重奏からなる作品だが、1曲目はチェロのみ、2曲目はピアノのみ、3曲目はヴァイオリンのみ、4曲目はピアノとチェロ、5曲目はピアノとヴァイオリン、6曲目はヴァイオリンとチェロ、7曲目はピアノトリオが伴奏になるという順列組み合わせの構成となっている。ここでは抑圧と虚無といった感情が交錯し、「死者の歌」にも通ずる晩年の退廃的な音楽が聴かれる。ヴァイオリンのローランド、チェロのデイヴィスは、それぞれショスタコーヴィチを得意としたフィッツウィリアム弦楽四重奏団のメンバーで、ここでも確かな響きを聴かせる。アシュケナージのピアノはさすがに巧い。

管弦楽の伴奏付の歌曲は、これも録音があまり多くないので貴重だが、中でもレイフェルクスの存在感が圧倒的だ。ここでは、彼の歌唱を中心に聴きたい。
