Notes and Editorial Reviews

An earlier CD by Konrad Jarnot impressed me (September/October 2005), despite his tackling what we have long come to regard as one of the pillars of women’s repertoire: Ravel’s Shéhérazade. A later recording offers him singing Strauss’s Vier letzte Lieder, but that I have not yet heard. Unfortunately, Oehms Classics, while providing notes in three languages, has not thought it important to let us have the Lieder texts, and those of us not particularly well versed in the byways of German poetry will find it difficult to follow several of the items. That is the only quibble to be found with this otherwise enterprising undertaking, allowing us to hear what “the” Mozart’s father and son could accomplish. As my review (Fanfare Read more 30:2) of the pendant to Graham Johnson’s Schubert Lieder set made clear, much more music was composed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries than we are customarily allowed to hear unless we have the time, not to mention Johnson’s flair. Franz Xaver would easily have been at home in that compilation; the music has charm, if not always especially individual. For the curious, the final track is devoted to Julie von Baroni-Cavalcabò, a student of Franz Xaver.

Jarnot once again allows us to hear a pleasing baritone, always at the service of the music, capable of a lyric line but with enunciation so clear that one could almost take dictation. Pianist Alexander Schmalz may not have the most subtle of touches, but he is nonetheless a convincing interpreter. The curious will easily find satisfaction here.
