'Edgar' is Puccini's second opera and, as in his first opera 'Le Villi,' it is hampered primarily by its clumsy and outlandish plot. Nonetheless it represents a major advance in Puccini's ability to write music that is apt for the situations depicted by the words and there are ample evidences of what later came to be considered Puccini's musical fingerprints--brilliantly illustrative orchestration, frequent pentatonic melodic outlines and harmonies, underlining of melodies by lush string writing, memorable arioso-like recitatives, soaring melodies. One hears the influence not of Verdi so much as Ponchielli here, although there is one instrumental passage that sounds for all the world like it was cribbed from 'Falstaff'; one wonders if it was added in Puccini's 1892 revision of the score. Possibly the best course of action in listening to this opera--listening, since one is unlikely ever to see a staged production--is to let the music wash over you without paying too much attention to the drama unfolding. There are simply too many flaws in the story to give it much credence. For instance, why does Edgar burn down his own house? Why all the sudden and unmotivated changes in the nature of Edgar's and Frank's characters? They make the Queen of the Night look like a Steady Eddie. Why does Edgar stage his own fake funeral, while appearing on the scene as a mysterious monk who makes false accusations about the 'dead' Edgar? We'll never know, but then we probably won't much care, either.
I'd never heard Edgar before. But it's been playing repeatedly since I got this recording; it's that engaging.
