Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Mariinsky label s opera recordings have garnered acclaim and awards from around the world, most recently for Valery Gergiev s recording of Parsifal released in 2010. For the label s fifth opera, Gergiev conducts Donizetti s masterpiece Lucia di Lammermoor with a magnificent cast led by Natalie Dessay. Donizetti s tragic opera depicts a family feud set in the Lammermuir hills of Scotland. Inspired by Sir Walter Scott s novel The Bride of Lammermoor, the central character of Lucia Ashton is torn between her family and true love and eventually descends into madness. Dessay is one of the world s most sought-after sopranos and an admired interpreter of lyric heroines. She is particularly renowned for her interpretation of the role of Lucia, which she has performed at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House and the Mariinsky Theatre.

Review

Editor's Choice: ''The new recording from the Mariinsky brings us into another world... Dessay's delicately thought-out heroine [is] well captured in this new Russian set.'' --Gramophone

**** Performance ***** Recording: ''The main attraction is Natalie Dessay as Lucia, a part she can despatch without strain... as post-Maria Callas Lucias go, she is one of the best.'' --BBC Music Magazine

''Easily worth the price of admission for Natalie Dessay's rendering of the title role. [Dessay] owns a flexible, controlled soprano that seems to have limitless expressive possibilities. Her high notes are thrilling... Gergiev leads stylishly and energetically.The reproduction of the exotic glass harmonica during Lucia's famous 'mad scene' is exquisite.'' --The Absolute Sound

I really wanted to like this performance as I've enjoyed so many of Natalie Dessay's performances in the past. I'm afraid "past" has to be the operative word here as she sounds very uncomfortable indeed. Within a narrow dynamic range, Dessay can still be impressive, her tone well-supported, her phrasing clear and specific. However whenever she puts pressure on her voice, an unpleasant vibrato, almost a wobble, intrudes diminishing her intentions. She sounds like she is walking on vocal eggshells, wanting to make bold choices, but unable to because of her fragile vocal estate. Furthermore, the highest notes are achieved with desperate lunges and are not at all pretty or exciting. She just manages an E-flat at the end of the Mad Scene. Some opera lovers insist one has to see her on stage to understand why people love her so much. Maybe, but this is a CD. Perhaps the Met will release a DVD of her performances from last March (seen in HD in movie theaters), but there her voice was in even more parlous condition.

The other singers are satisfactory, if unmemorable. Beczala has a handsome sound and certainly can sing this role well (he's excellent on the DVD with Netrebko), but here he sounds like he's just phoning it in. There's little passion and even less involvement. The other singers have excellent voices, but sound like they have no idea what they're singing about. Gergiev's leadership is limp and uninspired as is the fuzzy, diffuse sound.

If you love Dessay, you may still want this as some kind of souvenir. But try to get hold of one of her Met broadcasts from 2007 or one of her performances from even earlier. This simply came too late and in a crowded field it's an also-ran.

Incidentally, Dessay recorded the French version of Lucia (now reissued on EMI). That one finds her in far better voice with a superior supporting cast.

This set looks very appealing, however, this is a performance that lacks excitement and stars a soprano who shold not be singing this role. Ms. Dessay's sound can be shrill and unpleasant and there is a great tendency for the voice to spread under pressure. At times sounding downright ugly. I thought the saving grace of the performance would be the tenor Piotr Beczala as Edgardo but he offers nothing special. At best his voice is servicble. As for the conducting, Gergiev is just marking time. The one good thing about this set is that the opera is performed virtually complete. If you want a Lucia look back to the Sutherland, Callas era.....!

Please don't take this as a review, but after listening online to the first act of this new 'Lucia," I gave up. Dessay's slow wide vibrato is not appealing. After hearing Dessay'sher 'Quando, rapito in estasi,' I listened to Calls, Scotto, and Gheorghiu. I know Dessay is beloved, but she isn't even in the ballpark. There's an appealing vulnerability, but the rest is deficient on several grounds, starting with vocal production, phrasing, attack, and dramatic shaping of the aria. She's droopy in the same way that Sutherland used to be criticized for. I realize that Dessay is beloved, and I've admired her in concert, but not here.

Gergiev's conducting is polished but rather glib and oddly without punch. Gifted with an innately beautiful lyric tone, Piotr Beczala sounds monochromatic and uninvolved here. I suppose we can't ask for Italianate style anymore. It's certainly nowhere to be heard in this performance. On their own terms, the Russian cast is robust and strong. So take this as a note of caution, since I have no basis for criticizing the entire performance.
