The problem for me with Lenya is that she sounds elderly, tired and feeble, and the downward transpositions do irreversible damage to the musical character of the pieces in which she sings. Of course, at one time she was seen as the guardian of the flame as far as her husband's work was concerned, but later performances using the original voice types have revealed that this is a fallacy.
Sorry to disagree with those who see Lenya as next to God in the Weill discography, but there it is.
At least this is not quite as bad as the contemporaneous 'Mahagonny', where Lenya's Jenny is simply grotesque with its octave down transpositions. Shame there, too, as like here, the rest of the cast is strong, and indeed the Jimmy is probably the finest interpreter of the role on disc.Read more ›
