4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 17, 2005
Format: Audio CD
'Eva' is based on a play by Gabriela Preissová whose title can be roughly translated as 'The Farmer's Woman.' Preissová was the forward-thinking writer who provided the text for Janácek's 'Jenufa,' and the action takes place in the same area of Moravia as that better-known opera. There are plot similarities, however, with Janácek's 'Katya Kabanova,' in that, among other things, the heroine drowns herself in the final act. It's that familiar theme of a woman kicking over the traces to go with her lover, even though she is married, and finding out ultimately that society won't tolerate it. One would expect, then, that the musical setting of 'Eva' would be rather like those of Janácek's, but in fact it is rather more a nineteenth-century setting that is closer to 'The Bartered Bride' than to anything Janácek ever wrote. Josef Bohuslav Foerster (1859-1951) was slightly younger than Janácek but his musical style seems much older even though 'Jenufa' premièred a mere four years after 'Eva.'

Be that as it may, though, this opera is a red-blooded, nationalistic, tuneful, eventful and glorious work. It was popular throughout Europe for a period after its première, and for longer in what eventually became Czechoslovakia, but it has been out of favor for a very long time now. We are grateful, then, to the Wexford Festival, a yearly event devoted to reviving worthy but long-unheard operas. I've not been terribly enthusiastic about some of the recordings that have come out of Wexford, for various reasons including poor recording and poor musical values, but this issue is a real winner. Not only is the opera worthy of revival (and even entering the repertory), it is given a beautiful performance here.
