4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic with one reservation 2 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
Fabulous opera, beautifully sung and played. You'll be unlikely to see/hear it on stage, so this is your only opportunity. Don't hesitate.
The negative? No libretto. This is pathetic - the original box set issue came with a multi-language libretto, so why re-issue it without one? The cover is hideous, but then that applies to everything in this SONY re-issue series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome CD of Korngold masterpiece 23 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent performance of Violanta well cast and superbly played. Given the lack of available versions of this work its a must have. As a work this displays much of the talent of Die Tote Stadt without the length or perhaps the drama of the Stadt. To be honest I haven't yet read the story of the opera but as its only one CD long it is perhaps not performed due to its length and requirement for signers of the quality and style provided here. So...if you like Korngold (or Richard Strauss as in Die Frau Ohne Schatten) especially Stadt you should have this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Opera Violanta 8 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic buy. I found Korngold by Die Tote Stadt. A most underrated composer maybe the last of the old school. I took a chance on Violanta not knowing anything about it. Well recommended, not too long and good listening. Will find a dvd one day. Says it all!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but a little confusing... 17 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was my first dip into Korngold. Having loved Richard Strauss for years, I was expecting to love this too and in almost every way, I did! The orchestration is lush, the style is almost 'Strauss meets Puccini' and there is some fantastic singing from the three leads, particularly Eva Marton in ravishing voice and Siegfried Jerusalem, strong and secure with amazing high notes. There's not much subtlety here - its quite a loud assault on the senses from beginning to end with very few quiet moments; this is probably why one of my favourite moments is when Violanta hesitantly suggests the murder to her husband - its very effective.

I deduce a star for lack of a libretto. The synopsis is all very well but for such a wordy piece, it would have been good to know exactly what they were saying. I appreciate that this Sony series is pretty cheap and this is one reason why but, honestly, I'd have happily paid a couple of pounds more for a complete experience. I think it will take another couple of listens to fully appreciate 'Violanta' but I enjoyed it enough to move on to more Korngold!
