Format: Audio CD
2012 was an incredible year for `Robert le Diable', with productions in Erfurt, Monte Carlo, Sofia, Salerno, London and Geneva. The concert performance in Salerno was recorded by the Brilliant Label, and comes as a special memento of this period of remarkable rediscovery for Meyerbeer's legendary opera (in both senses of that word). Congratulations go especially to Daniel Oren for his enterprise and faith in the score. In any case, the score is so very beautiful.
The outpouring of loathing and contempt on the part of many critics that greeted the Covent Garden revival was a bizarre spectacle, and quite incomprehensible. One wonders if we live in the same world, and are hearing the same sounds? It is almost as if some of these people were fighting a moral cause, and the outbursts are themselves almost a sociological phenomenon! It is interesting that there is no other composer who is capable of eliciting such strength of feeling. There is no other major figure in opera whose musical worth is questioned all the time, or whose achievements are constantly and inappropriately forced into comparison with Wagner and Verdi. It is astonishing actually, and says something about the innate nature of the music, and its ability to challenge and to unsettle. Some accuse Meyerbeer of being hackneyed and trivial, and are then puzzled when the music is sufficiently unusual and original to foil expectation. So he is next blamed for not being conventional enough in, say, his melodic inspiration, or handling of form. If you want more traditional ideas, look to the Italian operas. In his French operas Meyerbeer was, like Berlioz, using conventional means to create something new and unusual, something highly dramatic, full of new orchestral colours and a striking melodic fluency.
