3.0 out of 5 stars The young Alagna struts his stuff September 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In 1996 Roberto Alagna was at the height of the hype machine, far from his current state -- he was booed off the stage at La Scala last year. To capitalize on its young, handsome tenor, EMI thrust him into -- what else? -- the evergreen La Boheme. The Penguin Guide gave the recording a rosette, their highest rating, which is strange for a release that other critics totally panned (the Fanfare review called it a Boheme without either a Rodolfo or Mimi). I tend toward the latter view, but as a positive the set is beautifully recorded, and Pappano shapes the score with obvious affection.

It's not that Alagna flops here, but he never had a beautiful voice per se, which puts him at a huge disadvantage in a role famously sung by Pavarotti and Bjorling. His voice also lacks color, but he emotes with the best, and even if his native temperament feels a little crude, eh works hard to sound tender. The rather timid Leontina Vaduva was miscast, not because she lacks talent but because EMI should have used Angela Gheorghiu, the more glamorous and far more musical half of a starry pair. It was left to Decca to correct the mistake in their more accomplished remake under Chailly, who is less warm and 'straighter' than the young Pappano, however.

The supporting cast is secondary to Alagna -- this is all his project -- but they are quite good, given that Swenson's Musetta could be more coquettish and Hampson's Marcello sounds more like a suave, mature uncle to Rodolfo than his impetuous friend. In all, this version will appeal mostly to fans of the tenor and/or conductor.
