By John Austin HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Feb. 2002
Format: Audio CD
Tchaikovsky's letters reveal that he had many misgivings about this opera. He preferred to call it a set of lyric scenes rather than an opera. Ultimately, he hoped that "a few chosen listeners might be able to discover the work for themselves at home". Well, modern technology has certainly fulfilled his hopes. Internet browsers can select from a number of complete recordings of the opera and enjoy it endlessly in their own homes. This one derives from a production at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 1974 conducted by Solti.

All music lovers will be familiar with the most popular extracts from this opera. The Act 2 Waltz gains immeasurably when heard in context, however. It includes lines for almost all the principal singers, and there is a large contribution by the chorus. The Polonaise that opens Act 3 has no vocal parts. It is especially effective however in actual performance. When the curtain rises and the dancers are seen in the chandeliered ballroom, the spectacle never fails to bring loud applause.

Which is the star part in this opera? Some might say, Onegin, some Tatyana. Lenski's aria probably gets the most applause. The team of singers here is entirely strong and convincing. As Onegin, Bernd Weikl skillfully suggests a range of feeling: scorn, vindictiveness, regret and desolation. Teresa Kubiak is an endearing Tatyana, especially strong in the last scene. Stuart Burrows is unexcelled as Lenski. Almost stealing the show, is the Gremin of Nicolai Ghiaurov, whose solitary appearance in Act 3 is well worth the wait.

Solti has left us many opera sets of great merit, and this is one of them. As was usual in opera sets for this label which he directed, great care is taken with balance, off stage effects, and clarity.

By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Jan. 2008
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To start by summarising: this is a very good Onegin indeed, and probably a very safe recommendation. It is not absolutely perfect even in aspects where there is reasonable hope of a common understanding of the term. For instance the singing is of a very high standard throughout, but here and there an occasional note might have been more secure. The recording is very easy on the ear without being in any way startling, but just now and again there is a hint of roughness. The orchestral work is very sensitive but arguably lacking a touch of lustre. The liner booklet is very thorough and professional, but it may be worth a little discussion of some statements that are made in the course of David Brown's essay. As regards Solti's direction, he may raise some eyebrows (he raised mine) by the uncharacteristically gentle touch he brings to this work.

To me, any minimal technical lapses that I even noticed were utterly unimportant. However nothing could be more important than the general concept of what this opera is about, and how that is expressed in performance. I recalled an interesting throwaway remark in Beecham's autobiography, something to the effect that Tchaikovsky and Beethoven wrote highly dramatic instrumental music, but had little sense of drama in the theatre. I can relate this view to Fidelio - the libretto is not much of a libretto, Beethoven is not much of a dramatist, and the work's greatness lies in its symbolic and purely musical respects. However I can make no sense of what Beecham says when it comes to Onegin. The libretto is Tchaikovsky's own adaptation of Pushkin, and I, knowing no Russian and no Pushkin, find it an excellent libretto. To any other listeners in the same boat I'd say this is probably a bonus.

Opera doesn't need the words all the time and this piece proves that amply, with some simply spellbinding music and voice. Of course the whole shebang is more effective, but I can never be bothered to read the libretto, except at the concert hall with the surtitles. brilliant cd
