Product description

Product Description

Based on a true incident which occurred during the French Revolution, Fidelio is Beethoven's only opera. Depicting the rescue of a political prisoner by his wife, who has disguised herself as a man, its themes of courage, marital loyalty and freedom make it one of the most uplifting and inspirational masterpieces of musical theatre.

Review

Best of 2007 Classical CDs
'...Sir Colin excelled himself in the power and nobility of his interpretation, with the LSO in terrific form...Christine Brewer sang with gleaming white-hot tone as Leonore. The final paean of joy at liberation is overwhelming. First-class recording quality.' -- Sunday Telegraph (UK), 9 December 2007

'... playing of real bite and character that is caught with startling presence by the recording ... Brewer's Leonore is exceptional ... Mac Master's performance is immensely impressive' -- The Guardian (UK), 19 January 2007

'...Tenor John Mac Master's Florestan is every stave a match for [Christine]Brewer's powerful Leonore, with the LSO chorus in fine voice as Davis mines the visionary depths of Beethoven's wondrous score' -- The Observer (UK), 28 January 2007

'Davis seems to view the work as an heroic love story instead of a grand pronouncement on freedom and oppression as so many others do. Hence the incredible lyricism of Davis's account...Fresh and compelling...fully worthy to mount the steps to the temple of the few greats we have' -- Audiophile Audition (UK), 13 March 2007

'first class modern sound and cast to a standard I would of thought unachievable ... unmissable' -- International Record Review (UK), January 2007
