Holzbauer: The Death of Dido (Bernius)

Ignaz Holzbauer

The Death of Dido

Singspiel in one act

Description

In his penultimate opera Tod der Dido [The Death of Dido] (1779), Ignaz Holzbauer (1711-1783) presented himself not only as a master of fine musical word interpretation, but also as an imaginative music dramatist. While the original Italian version underlined his position as one of the leading opera composers of the time, the German version which he wrote a year later additionally emphasizes his position as a pioneer of the German National Opera. Frieder Bernius therefore chose this version for a production performed at the Schwetzingen Festival in 1997, which is now being released on CD for the first time.

Reviews

Frieder Berniusconduit l’action avec un mélangede feu et de finesse très réactif aux enjeux de l’écriture.
Jean-Philippe Grosperrin, Diapason, November 2018

 

Am Pult des Barockorchesters Stuttgart lässt es Frieder Bernius mit viel hörbarer Leidenschaft und Stilkenntnis funkeln.
Benjamin Künzel, klassik.com, 30.10.2018

 

Orkesteret spelar flott, og den franske sopranen Sandrine Piau er god som Dido.
Dag og Tid, 28.09.2018

 

Mit dem Barockorchester sorgt Frieder Bernius ... für Klarheit und packende dramatische Akzente ... mit so feiner, sicherer Hand, dass ein konzentriertes Zuhören unbedingt lohnt.
