5.0 out of 5 stars SUBLIME STRAUSS FROM MARGARET PRICE 15 Jun 2011
By Jim Brooks VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Admirers of Margaret Price know exactly what to expect from the Welsh soprano who died earlier this year; one of the loveliest soprano voices of our time supported, literally, by flawless technique, innate musicality, taste and intelligence. Well, it's all here in these recordings, splendidly accompanied by Wolfgang Sawallisch (Strauss) and James Lockhart (Liszt). Those wishing to get to know the soprano's work could scarcely do better than this mid-price reissue.

The Strauss recital was recorded in 1987 when Price was 46, in her vocal prime and sounding much younger. In later years there was a touch more grandeur in Price's approach, but here she is eagerly responsive to the text and the contrasting emotions of the songs while avoiding the sentimentality that can so easily diminish Strauss's writing.

The Liszt songs date from a 1974 Classics for Pleasure album and show that, in addition to her vocal prowess she was already a compelling storyteller, responsive to text and nuance. In short, the complete Lieder singer. Price sounds even younger than her 33 years. The rising phrase at the end of "Die Lorelei" is perfection.

Considering the very reasonable price of this marvellous collection it's a pity that EMI,
having included texts, provide only a French translation, but don't let anything put you Margaret Price's sublime performances.

Price was born in Blackwood,Wales with deformed legs, after an operation she suffered from pain in her legs all her life. She studied at the Trinity college of music and trained as a mezzo soprano.After graduation she joined the Ambrosian singers,performing with them in the film El Cid. She made her opera debut in 1962, singing Cherubino in Mozarts Marriage of Figaro at the Welsh National opera. Again in the same role in 1963 as understudy to Teresa Berganza who cancelled, she took over and became an overnight success. James Lockhart the composer, convinced Price to take further singing lessions to improve her technique and develop the luminous high notes, that made her one of the most popular lyric soprano's of the 1970's and 1980's.

As Price did not enjoy travelling,she always kept a home stage, where she stayed and performed for the majority of each year. Initially this was Covent Garden, but in 1971 she moved to Germany. Her base was the Cologne opera and latterly the Bavarian State opera in Munich, where she lived until retirement in 1999. She was a Kammersangerin of the Bavarian state opera. Price was a Mozart specialist, but was very active as a Lieder singer, equally at home in the Romantic idiom of Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann or Richard Strauss. One of her most famous readings is as Isolde in Carlos Kleiber's DGG Wagner's Tristan und Isolde.

There are no English translations, only French and German in this CD, However,the book of Lieder,the original texts of over 1,000 German songs,has been chosen and translated by Richard Stokes.will help. Price was 33 when she recorded the Lizst Lieder with James Lockhart at the piano, who had encouraged her to change from a Mezzo into a lyrical soprano. She was 46 when she sung the Richard Strauss with Wolfgang Sawallisch.
