Info


But James McCracken as Jean is not in the same league, and the 1970s studio sound has a hollow quality that may make you think you're hearing theater sound. Really, the reason this recording has lasted so long is that nothing has come along to supplant it, and the opera is underrated. Meyerbeer: Le Prophète, Horne, Scotto, Lewis. LP 12 album, 33 rpm, Box Set. Le Prophete is the Meyerbeer work par excellence that Wagner saw as the most egregious example of all that was bad in Meyerbeer , ie empty calculated showy effects without real drama or thought through musical development. nevertheless it is fun and has some real show stoppers eg Coronation March , skaters ballet, stirring choruses and Fides' aria.

Whenever Marilyn Horne's Fides holds the stage, it matches the energy of the piece itself. The role calls for a Brünnhilde range with an Amneris-type voice: the vocal flexibility and dramatic punch needed are extraordinary. The Royal Philharmonic under Henry Lewis play well, colourful orchestration being among the score's most attractive features. Gramophone Read less. Horne made her debut at the Royal Opera House in October 1964 as Marie in Wozzeck. Her La Scala debut was as Jocasta in Stravinsky's opéra-oratorio Œdipus rex on March 13, 1969. Horne has also established the Marilyn Horne Foundation to help preserve the art of vocal recitals. She teaches a series of annual Master Classes at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music the University of Maryland, College Park the Manhattan School of Music and the University of Oklahoma.

Meyerbeer's grandiose Le Prophète was recorded by CBS in London in 1976 under conductor Henry Lewis. The stellar cast, including Renata Scotto and James McCracken, is headed by the incomparable Marilyn Horne as Fides. As Gramophone wrote: The role calls for a Brünnhilde range with an Amneris-type voice: the vocal flexibility and dramatic punch needed are extraordinary. Miss Horne has them all, and she brings out the pathos of the part without sentimentalizing it. The RPO pay much attention to Meyerbeer's highly piquant, often quirky orchestration.
