Viva, La Morte! Insiem! Was there ever a more dramatic and touching opera ending? This 2 CD set from Capriccio, an excellent German company, is a digital recording from 1989 with very good sound that clearly surpasses other Chenier CDs I have heard and, although it purports to be "Live from the Old Opera in Frankfurt" there is absolutely NO audience noise or applause so, coupled with several singers taking duplicate roles, I am certain it was a radio performance with the audience admonished to be quiet as was the case with recorded German radio broadcasts. The thick booklet has cast bios and an extended and detailed essay on Giordano's composition of the opera as well as background information about the French Revolution and Chenier himself. Finally, there are complete Italian and German texts in the booklet and a separate booklet with an English translation of the libretto.

I bought this because Franco Bonisolli was singing the title role and, as always, he does not disappoint, having his usual consistent, moving, thrilling and extraordinarily powerful voice and with this part which I feel cannot be too dramatic or exaggerated, I always want the tenor to fly into unbridled excited, wild passion - sempre infuriarsi per piacere! Gerard is sung by the excellent Renato Bruson with a warm, beautiful, full-bodied and brown baritone that is the absolute class of all the other recorded Gerards. The young soprano, Maria Gulegina (whose name is consistently spelled that way on the CD and in the booklet but I believe she is Maria GulegHina), whom I had never heard before, was a wonderful surprise possessing a full, rich voice, even throughout but without much subtlety and, accordingly, quite reminiscent of a young Eva Marton.
