OK - so everyone knows the Barcarolle from LES CONTES D'HOFFMANN - but I guess the uninitiated have no idea that the Barcarolle along with much of the rest of CONTES was not written for that opera at all and that either Offenbach himself, or others after he had died, pillaged many of his other works for music for this last great work. The uninitiated also often do not realise that CONTES was not Offenbach's only serious work. ROBINSON CRUSOE for example is a Romantic Opera and there are other works such as FANTASIO which are far from comic. Once you know this, it is perhaps less of a surprise to find that the famous Barcarolle actually started life as a chorus of elves in DIE RHEINIXXEN (the German title and this recording is sung in German), and if fact, it runs like a leitmotiv through the entire work. And what a work - not for the faint-hearted - especially if you are expecting another ORPHEE or HELENE. This is a work which, even in such a splendid performance and recording as this, needs you to sit down and concentrate for a full three and a half hours. Another notable borrowing is the Valse de Rayons from PAPILLON (Offenbach's only full length ballet), present here in a quarter hour ballet sequence. The music is glorious, if with more than a nod to Wagner. Well worth investigation, but, as I say, not for the faint hearted and certainly not for frequent repeated listening.
