"Edgar", Puccini's second opera is very rarely performed in the theatre and, unfortunately, I have never seen it.

However, I am a big fan of Puccini's music and, having previously enormously enjoyed the recent EMI Pappano/Gheorghiu/Alagna recording of "La Rondine" (another rarely performed work that I have not seen), this recording featuring Placido Domingo as Edgar was too tempting to resist.

I would say that anyone who enjoys Puccini's later operas would enjoy listening to this CD. The opera itself is very short, under 90 minutes. The music is very Puccinian and although the great "killer" arias are absent it didn't detract from the enjoyment of the opera's music. Having heard it, I cannot really understand why it doesn't get performed more often - the dynamicism of the music hints at the possibility of a good theatrical experience too - is the duration too short perhaps? The accompanying booklet puts it down to the fact that the plot is "preposterous" but I'm sure opera lovers will have seen and enjoyed operas that fall into that category.

Lovers of Puccini's music will recognise some passages and phrases that he has borrowed and used in his later operas: again, this doesn't detract from the enjoyment. It's very interesting to hear the opera in full and as a result be able to understand something about his musical development.

The performances are excellent all round, as you'd expect from Deutsche Grammophon, so I can recommend this CD without reservation to anyone who has ever enjoyed Puccini's music.

Domingo is on top form, and he is generally well supported in this overall enjoyable rarity 15 Dec 2011
By G.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Puccini's early opera is perhaps an immature work, but does indeed contain plenty of exciting and hugely enjoyable material - as well as a good deal of characteristic touches. There are many good melodies and several rousing scenes that only occasionally verge on the banal or overly pompous. It's title role is certainly a challenging one, not the least for the stamina it requires - Edgar is present on the scene for much of the time, and much of his music is pretty loud and dramatic. But Placido Domingo is unfazed by the challenge and sings superbly throughout. Not only is his voice still in superb shape; he also imbues the role with plenty of passion as well as a nuanced characterization.

In short, Domingo steals the show. The rest of the cast is generally good, but certainly not in the same class. Adriana Damato is fine but a little hard-toned; she is best in the dramatic scenes, where she admittedly impresses. Marianne Cornetti is similarly good (in a difficult role), and Juan Pons does overall acquit himself well, even if his Frank is not as sharply characterized as one could perhaps have wished - he is also a little approximate in certain entrances as well as with regard to his pitch. But fair enough, this set is still a must for Domingo, and the Coro e Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia under Alberto Veronesi are effectively dramatic and fiery throughout. A must for Domingo fans, then, but a rewarding acquisition for any opera fan, one that contains a fine if not magnificent work. The sound and presentation are very good.
