Notes & Reviews:

Something demonic and ghostly fills the air: we find ourselves in the age of Dark Romanticism, which cast its shadow on the opera. The fateful drama is of Scottish origin, whose essence consists of inherited curses, dark, guilty entanglements and bloody props, in order to wake fatalistic shivers. Among the audience at the premiere performance of the 'Vampire' in 1828 at the Sachsisches Hoftheater in Leipzig was 15-year-old Richard Wagner. Marschner's opera crosses the path of the theatre novice many times. In 1833 the fledgling repetiteur Wagner in Wurzburg got involved in: 'However, soon the Marschner score interested me sufficiently to make it worth while to have my bitter work published. I contributed a new allegro movement to Aubry's tenor aria in Marschner's 'Vampire', which I also wrote the text to. My resulting work was demonic and effective, registering the acclaim of the audience and encouraging recognition from my brother'. Wagner could still get worked up about the 'loathsomeness of the thematic'; even Hans Pfitzner had to placatingly defend and emphasize the 'gruesomeness' of the text, the 'shivering' was the 'best part of Marschner's music'. Edgar Istel also captured his theatrical impression in creepy gothic words: 'Whoever saw how the once-bitten vampire returns to life rises up by moonlight to the sounds of Marschner's ghostly music, they will never forget this impression.'

BBC Music Magazine, April 2014
Kaufmann sings the hero to Hawlata's villain in this enjoyable account of Marschner's 1828 Gothic thriller, a work that influenced Wagner and which can still send a shiver down the spine.
