Product description

Product Description

Piotr Becza a has enjoyed success at all the great opera houses of the world. He also excels in the Slavic repertoire, which may be less than familiar to the box office but worthy of recognition, especially with such a voice possessed by this Polish tenor. Notable successes have been Becza a s sell-out performances as the Prince in Dvo ák s Rusalka at the Salzburg Festival and as Lenski in Tchaikovsky s Eugene Onegin at the Met, Covent Garden and elsewhere. Becza a s recital here includes highlights from the aforementioned works, but he also offers proof of the rich possibilities that this repertoire offers for a tenor to display both vocal grace and melancholy. It was in Warsaw that many of the operas were premièred, such as The Haunted Manor, The Raftsman and Halka by Stanis aw Moniuszko. He was one of the driving forces behind the patriotic opera aesthetic of the newly founded national states in 19th century Europe, an aesthetic not just restricted to Poland. These three operas offer intense scenes of reminiscence and contemplation for their tenor protagonists, and they are joined here by the later, almost verismo operas Janek and The Baltic legend. Prince Igor is more familiar in the west, so it is fitting that Becza a here reminds us once more of the qualities of Vladimir s romance from it. The musical spectrum is completed by examples of exoticism and local colour with excerpts from Sadko (in two different orchestrations), May Night, Aleko and Arensky s Raphael. This is a solo programme from one of the great tenors of our time, as varied as it is rich in discoveries.
