5.0 out of 5 stars Life Affirming, 20 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Janacek: The Cunning Little Vixen (DECCA The Originals) (Audio CD)
For anyone who thinks opera is just too morbid 'Vixen' should change your mind. Janacek's interpretation of what started as a newspaper cartoon is magnificently life affirming and human (despite having mainly animal characters and what could be seen as a 'sad' ending). The Act 1 Pantomime has one of the most sublime melodies in all music and the whole work is triumphently optimistic. Mackerras is perhaps the greatest interpreter of Janacek's work and you get the orchestral suite as well!
