Format: Audio CD
Now, contrary to what some readers might think, writing a bad review on a new Wagner opera set is not something that this writer particularly enjoys doing. On the contrary, I was very excited when the Janowski-RSB cycle was announced - and really looking forward to every issue through 2011, 2012 and 2013 - it felt a little bit like watching a Flash Gordon serial in the 1930s and being impressed by the nail-biting cliffhanger at the end of every episode. Alas....
After a good "Fliegende Holländer", a truly magic "Parsifal" but a completely unnecessary "Meistersinger", this Lohengrin confirms the current limitations of recording "soundtrack-only" Wagner operas. Because the voices are in short supply and because a lot of careers now seem to be built on short term celebrity (one cryingly obvious example here), directors have to be even more imaginative (in the best or worst sense of the word) to draw attention to a performance that would have have otherwise lost the audience's interest after twenty minutes.

Let's stop beating around the bush: the Act I of this Lohengrin is disastrous. The way the strings emerge from the orchestra in the first bars is truly magical but after that I didn't particularly find the orchestra extremely focused or extremely involved for that matter. Janowski, much more inspired by father than by son, goes through the motions without a lot of belief. Markus Brück is an indifferent Herald, Günther Groissböck a nice-to-hear King Heinrich but with some top notes problems. As for Annette Dasch, she is the one cast member who made me very angry.

Musical, but underpowered dramatically. No special winners among the cast either
