Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Best known for his spectacular operas, Giacomo Meyerbeer also contributed to the more intimate world of French, German and Italian song. Often reflecting on the joys and pains of love or blooming with religious fervor, the 21 songs heard here are interpreted by Sivan Rotem, one of Israel's most outstanding singers, and Jonathan Zak, a graduate of the Juilliard School and full professor at the Buchman-Mehta Music School of Tel-Aviv University.

Sivan Rotem, born in Buenos Aires but trained in Haifa and Tel Aviv, is an accomplished singer - and beautiful! A couple of years ago, when I reviewed a mixed recital with her, a reader wrote to me: 'I could buy the record just for her eyes!' But that's not her only attribute. She has a beautiful voice as well, slightly worn today but skilfully and expressively used. She has an accompanist that is among the most experienced pianists now before the public. Jonathan Zak was one of the founders of the world famous Yuval Trio which has toured the world for decades and recorded for Deutsche Grammophon, CBS and other premium labels. The accompaniments are not always very sophisticated but with the sensitive playing Zak bestows upon them they stand out as nobler than they are. The songs themselves are hardly on the level of Schubert, Schumann or Mendelssohn but they are melodious and attractive on a more modest plane. There is very often a sense of the opera house about them.

MusicWeb International
Known best for his operas, with, perhaps, only Les Huguenots (1836) universally familiar, Giacomo Meyerbeer remains an important figure in nineteenth-century music. His legacy includes works in other genres, including songs. Meyerbeer's songs connect directly to his operas and this recent Naxos recording makes a generous and accessible selection composed songs throughout his career. They set texts in various languages, including, French, Italian, and German. This Naxos disc begins with Italian canzonas that offer a sense of the composer's approach to the idiom, with expansive vocal lines supported most often by a discreet accompaniment that neither overwhelms nor competes with the voice. This is as found in "Il nascere e il fiorire d'una rosa," a piece that stands apart from the set of Sei canzonette italiane (1810), also included in this recording. The latter set of six songs stands out as the product of the nineteen-year-old composer.
