Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Meistersinger is Vol.2 of the complete Wagner Edition. This edition is unique in that it is the first time a label has recorded all Wagner Opera's with the same orchestra, choir and conductor. Recorded in surround sound and includes a star soloist line-up.

"[A good Meistersinger] should show teamwork among the soloists and a good balance between the conversational style of much of the singing and the grandeur of the orchestral accompaniment. On that basis, this recording...is the most successful ever made. It is a phenomenal achievement of Marek Janowski to have welded his immense forces into such a virtually flawless unity, and to imbue it with incessant vitality and energy." -BBC Music Magazine

Gramophone Magazine, March 2012
A swift, light, comic reading of the score, more Lortzing than Tristan...Albert Dohmen sounded at home across the whole spectrum of Sachs's poetry, wistfulness and wit....Henschel essays a Beckmesser who can be all of pompous, weird, a credible vocalist in both serenade and prize song to Eva - and funny....Janowski's achievement is to have recreated a genuine comic feel for the piece.

Graham Rogers, bbc.co.uk, 13th February 2012
[Janowski] never imposes any superfluous heaviness on the score; his Meistersinger breathes naturally, brimming with compelling drama and homogenous humour...Dohmen exudes commanding authority tempered with avuncular softness, his gloriously rich and mellifluous voice never strained. Edith Haller's relatively light, creamy Eva is delightful...a winning Meistersinger that more than holds its own with any in the catalogue.

International Record Review, February 2012
Die Meistersinger is essentially an ensemble piece, and Janowski never lets you forget this...Occasionally, in Sachs's big phrases, Dohmen has to push his voice, but, overall, his Sachs is one of the successes of the set...Another big success is Peter Sonn's youthful and verbally agile David...As Pogner, Georg Zeppenfeld sports one of the finest German basses of his generation and the most beautiful male voice on the set.

Reviews

Sheer delight
I bought this on the basis of the rave review in Opera News by William Braun and I haven't been disappointed. It's my fourth complete Meistersinger--the others are Karajan, Solti, and Kubelik--but it's up there with the best of them, with great sound and the freshness of a live concert performance. Dohmen is a great Sachs. What stands out most, though, is the orchestral playing. There is a wonderful lightness and transparency to the score that I've not heard in any other recording.
