Notes & Reviews:

After the premiere of Oedipus at Colonus in 1881, not much more was heard about Gouvy's opera. Joachim Fontaine examined the score under its layer of archival mold and spent many years reconstructing it and working toward its revival. This is the first recording of the opera since its reconstruction. 7619934211326

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Gouvy's dramatic oratorio Oedipus at Colonus is based loosely on the second play of the Theban trilogy of Sophocles using a libretto adapted from one by Nicolas-Francois Guillard for Antonio Sacchini's Oedipus at Colonus (1785) that falls far short of the stature and intent of Sophocles. The music sounds like Mendelssohn at first then sometimes like Gounod or Saint-Saens. The music is pretty and often has a reverential quality. The performance is decent, with Haab especially effective as the snarling Oedipus. Ratzenböck is effective as his loyal and strong willed daughter Antigone. Cornwall's bleating voice distracts from his performance of Polynices. The orchestral playing is clean and clear.
