HASH(0x9db2aabc) étoiles sur 5 The highest quality performance 13 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The music on this recording presents a typical example of a semi-opera, popular in Britain in Purcell's time. Semi-operas were based on a dramatic spoken play, and were accompanied by "incidental" music (dances and masques). It is this incidental music that usually finds its way onto a disc. This recording follows this convention. What distinguishes this recording is its high quality. Collegium Musicum 90 and Richard Hickox are experts in baroque music. The soloists include the biggest names in English vocals. Even the two additional tenors, brought in to merely double the voices in two places, are not just anybody, but Mark Padmore and Ian Bostridge (!). That tells you something. The biggest highlights include the Wood-god duet in Act V of Dioclesian, and the soprano song "Since from my dear Astrea's sight" which is placed in an appendix because musicologists don't seem to know where exactly it originally belonged. This song, which seems to speak of a man's, rather than woman's, anguish over the lost love, concludes with the most wrenching words: "alas, with weeping eyes, And bleeding heart I lie Thinking on her whose absence 'tis That makes me wish to die." Isn't that beautiful?

HASH(0x9db507a4) étoiles sur 5 World Class Performance 17 septembre 2008

There are few recordings of Henry Purcell's "operas" that come close to this caliber. A shame almost, because it spoils you, and the other cd's start to sound a bit sophomoric, as they are often lacking not only early music voices but period correct instruments. (hmmm, a snobby comment if ever there was one.) Just remember that few early music performing groups can compete with Collegium Musicum's vocal and instrumental arsenal. Incidentally, the Collegium records exclusively on Chandos. Recorded 1993-94 at St. Jude's Church, London.

HASH(0x9db5e93c) étoiles sur 5 Fine Recording Purcell's Semi-Opera 15 juillet 2015

Henry Purcell is generally viewed as the greatest British composer before Handel. He wrote a substantial amount of theater music, including one full opera (Dido and Aeneas), five semi-operas (Dioclesian, the Fairy Queen, the Indian Queen, King Arthur, and the Tempest), and a host of masques and incidental music for other plays. This recording includes all the music for Dioclesian, as well as the masque from Timon of Athens. Dioclesian (also called "The Prophetess") recounts the ascent of the Roman general to to the emperorship and his retirement twenty years later, but the songs are only loosely related to the story and can be enjoyed without reference to it.

There exist three recordings of Dioclesian--this one, conducted by Roger Hickox, and others led by John Eliot Gardiner and Trevor Pinnock. Although I have not heard the latter two, which are also directed by eminent baroque specialists, I have no doubt that this one is their equal or better. Hickox and his distinguished soloists provide a delightful listening experience in excellent 1995 sound.
