Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The unexpected name of Tito Gobbi was enough to attract me to an even more unexpected thing: Wozzeck in Italian. German is a very different language, so it's forgivable that Berg's spoken singsong (Sprechstimme) doesn't survive for the most part; some of the singers simply sing. That's not true of Gobbi, who attempts the special delivery with considerable success. On the whole, the opera becomes a piece of updated verismo, however. Which works well enough. This is a 1954 radio broadcast in presentable mono sound and no stage noises since it was done in concert. Gobbi turned 41 that year and was at the height of his powers.

He doesn't express the psychotic or Expressionistic side of the tormented hero; there's an inescapable touch of Pagliacci about the portrayal, which sounds pleading and anxious more than psychologically warped. Because it's Gobbi, there's masterful vocal acting, to the point that seeing him is hardly necessary. Another vocal standout is Hughes Cuenod, but the French tenor entirely skips the Captain's sadistic and psychopathic side entirely. Cuenod's Captain is creepy rther than demented. What impresses is how accurately he sings this demanding role with its very high register. As Marie, Dorothy Dow continues the theme of multi-nationalism; the Houston-born soprano doesn't rise to the level of Eileen Farrell, in another live performance from the same time, led by Dimitri Mitropoulos, but she's full-voiced and involved. One has to remember that Wozzeck was considered fiendishly difficult at the time, and just to attempt the main roles was considered a tremendous challenge. Dow sings the role as grand opera, with no attempt to meet Berg's vocal instructions.

The orchestra sounds well-prepared by Nino Sanzogno, a ocnductor unknown to me.
