Works on This Recording: 1. Powder Her Face, Op. 14 by Thomas Adès Performer: Roger Bryson (Bass), Niall Morris (Tenor), Valdine Anderson (Soprano), Jill Gomez (Soprano) Conductor: Thomas Adès Orchestra/Ensemble: Almeida Ensemble Period: 20th Century Written: 1995; England Date of Recording: 12/1995 Venue: Rosslyn Hill Chapel, London, England Length: 115 Minutes 45 Secs. Language: English . Notes and Editorial Reviews: This witty and poignant chamber opera was commissioned by Almeida Opera and first performed by them - to both success and scandal - in 1995. The story tells the glamorous rise and seedy fall of Margaret, the Duchess of Argyll. According to Paul Griffiths, Adès's score, with its allusions to cabaret, to Kurt Weill and Alban Berg, is 'the music of the future', written by one who has 'the panache of a great opera composer'.
