The Rattle Fidelio is outstanding from an overall and an orchestral standpoint.
Based on a new Barenreiter performing edition although I'm not sure I could tell what differences are notational and what are performance-basedSir Simon presents Beethoven's musical structure in an incredibly moving and dramatic way, and the Berlin Philharmonic shines. I find no fault with Sir Simon here. His grand pauses and tempi are unusual The vocal leads, however, disappoint.
Florestan Villars is clean but boring, unidiomatic, non-pathos-laden, and completely inadequate for the essential dramatic requirements of the role Jon Vickers where are you? Leonore Denoke is also less than optimal, especially in the "Abscheulicher! With a better Florestan and a better Leonore this would have been a great recording.
As it is, it is worth hearing. Whether you want to own it or not depends on how many Fidelios you want on your shelf. It's definitely not the one and only, and no recording of Fidelio that Des Besten Konigs Wink Und Wille - Ludwig van Beethoven - Fidelio (CD know of even comes close to being that, but to the extent that singing matters after all, this is an opera there are better.
Leonora, tu desta sei The absence of this overture is already a big minus, as it deprives a listener from more musical pleasure. And here he was a great Don Pizarro, although sounding lighter than some deeper, more basso voices. Overall, it is a good, but not a particularly outstanding recording; I'd give it four stars if it had the Leonore Overture, but still it is not as Des Besten Konigs Wink Und Wille - Ludwig van Beethoven - Fidelio (CD as Bernstein's or a timeless classic as Furtwangler's Fidelio.
But except on rare occasoins, Rattle has never been a strong advocate of Beethoven--he went 20 years of prolific recording activity without making any Beethoven CDs, just as he recorded no Mozart or Brahms symphonies and precious little Haydn.
Now he finds himself in the wrong territory fot that kind of holdout. Playing catch-up hasn't been easy. This live Fidelio is a case in point.

But surely, Opera Diva, the thing is that a Fidelio without a fine -even exceptional- Leonore is like the proverbial Hamlet without a prince?
This opera revolves around this character, both musically and dramatically. I am a great admirer of Benackova in Janacek and other music She swoops, she jumps up to high notes, her tone is frequently acidic, she is VERY overparted throughout 'Abscheulischer' Doesn't anyone notice that she sings off key and harshly half the time? So, a mixed bag: Domingo and Barenboim fans will need this, but it's like getting only a part of Fidelio Barenboim, by the way, begins the opera with the Leonore Overture No.
Why not go for the recent Halasz reading on Naxos? It's good, it's cheap, and there's just enough dialogue to keep the plot intelligible. Ludwig Van Beethoven. Add to Cart. How to Order. International Shipping. Return Policy.
