Format: Audio CD
In 1816, the great German writer and music critic E.T.A. Hoffmann wrote of Mehul's operas: "Serious, dignified, harmonically rich and thoughtfully fashioned, they should not be allowed to disappear from the stage". Sadly however, Hoffmann's advice was not followed in the twentieth century and nowadays they have vanished almost completely, despite being admired by (and influencing) Beethoven, Wagner, Berlioz and Weber. French opera in general has been rather neglected on disc compared to its German and Italian counterparts, and whole areas have been left to gather dust on the shelves. The era between the retirement of Gluck and the emergence of Berlioz (roughly 1780 - 1825) has been particularly badly ignored, really only represented in the mainstream repertoire by Cherubini's "Medee" in a mangled Italian version which attempts to turn it into a bel canto opera. Now, with the appearance of "Stratonice", Francophiles at last have the chance to hear a real rarity.
Etienne Nicolas Mehul, along with his friend Luigi Cherubini, was the most important French composer of the Revolutionary era. "Stratonice", a one-act work from 1792, is a short example of the most popular genre of the time, 'opera comique' (though this work is not in the least bit comic - the phrase simply means it has spoken dialogue, and rather a lot of it, between the arias). The story, set in ancient Syria, concerns Prince Antiochus, who is secretly in love with his father the king's, fiancee, Stratonice. The king can't understand why his son is pining away but the canny doctor, Erasistratus, finds out the truth and everything is resolved happily. Mehul was a pupil of Gluck and the older composer's influence clearly shows in the cool, classical chorus which opens the work.

Can anyone help and tell me where the libretto of this opera could be found? The web page the CD indicates does not seem to work anymore. Thanks.

Great music! 26 Dec. 2011
By Gabriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This a fantastic work, great conducting from William Christie on the period instrument orchestra and the cast is top notch. My only complain about this specific edition is that as happens in most reissued editions the words, and translations, won't come along within the booklet. Rather there's a web link included on the booklet where you can get the words... but it's not from the official recording company webpage nor does it have a translation into english. You'll get only the french text. This is a major issue about many reissued recordings... is it really necessary to save on paper to lower the price only a little bit? I'd rather pay some more and have the full libretto with the original text and english translation printed on the booklet. That's not an intelligent tactic to fight the illegal digital music distribution. I'm giving four stars only because of that. For the music and performance it's an easy five stars.
