Notes and Editorial Reviews

Seven discs well-filled with ‘The Voice of an Angel’ may seem a daunting prospect. However with beauty of tone, charming delivery and the singer’s communicative personality there isn’t a dull moment. There is anyway no need to play it through from beginning to end. This box is a treasure-trove to pick and choose from and as such it should last a lifetime.

This set and the Björling box - recently reviewed by me - in EMI’s Icon series offer a lot that is well-known – and deservedly so. Many of these recordings are among the best available. This is just as it should be for the wider musical public. Specialist collectors need to look further afield.

Many of these recordings I have known for ages.
Read more Beecham’s La bohème was one of my earliest complete sets. I also acquired a Faust highlights record. The first half of CD 4 has been a favourite of mine since the mid-1960s, originally under the LP title ‘A World of Song’. The zarzuela arias, Chants d’Auvergne and early operatic arias on CD 1 as well as many of the Spanish songs have also frequently been on my turntables or in my CD players in various disguises.

Longstanding familiarity with works of art also has a reverse side: one tends to take the interpretations for granted and overlook faults that fresh ears may detect. There is also another angle: perfectionism in a performance is not always a guarantee of the deepest experience from the listeners’ point of view. On the contrary certain idiosyncrasies can often heighten the enjoyment and technical blemishes are easy to overlook if the feeling and insight are right.

From this preamble readers may conclude that Victoria de los Angeles is not always free from defects. Up high she could at times be shrill. With advancing years the delivery was not always free from strain and occasionally her tone could become pinched when she tried to scale down and sing intimately. Against this the defence could line up evidence en masse to contradict the prosecution: the warmth, the feeling, the style, the nobility and – yes, also the humour and the frivolous charm – but paired with innocence and mildness. On the operatic stage she was no tigress. Though she was a natural choice for weak, vulnerable characters like Mimi and Butterfly she was also a superb scheming Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia and she also took on Carmen. I don’t know what she was like on stage in that role but hearing the generous excerpts from the Beecham recording (CD 3 tr. 9-13) she is no bloodless creature. There is however a certain aristocracy about her, and in that respect she has a deal in common with her compatriot Teresa Berganza.

For once the subheading of the box, ‘The Voice of an Angel’, is no mere hype. There are few other singers that so readily match that soubriquet. On the first disc, where the first nine titles come from a 1954 recital recorded in Rome, she is at her loveliest. Her Desdemona is so deeply felt. Porgi, amor from Le nozze di Figaro reminds us that she was a highly successful Mozart singer at the outset of her career and, even, a fine Wagnerian. There were hardly any other Wagner roles that were within her scope, but Elisabeth as well as Elsa are very convincingly interpreted. I am especially fond of her dreamy Elsa, a reading to set beside Régine Crespin’s recording, also on EMI, from the mid-1960s. In the Spanish items, from La vida breve and the two songs by Turina she is truly on home ground. These are among her very earliest recordings – from the late 1940s. The Vida breve arias were in fact her debut recording for EMI, the company for which she recorded exclusively during most of her career. Bachianas brasileiras No. 5 with the composer conducting is also a valuable inclusion.

On CD 2 there are excerpts from several of her complete opera recordings in Italian. Her Mimi is the loveliest anywhere, challenged – possibly – only by Mirella Freni. The third act of the Beecham recording is arguably the best of all; here we get only her touching aria Donde lieta usci, but on the aforementioned Björling set we get the full last fifteen minutes. It is always preferable to have the complete recordings but for those satisfied with the plums, this is more than acceptable. Her only two recording ventures into Verdi are also represented with a vulnerable Maria Boccanegra and three excerpts from La traviata – frailer than most – where she is ably partnered by Carlo del Monte in the Brindisi. Her contribution to Puccini’s Il trittico is also legendary and just weeks ago I praised her when the whole trio was issued in EMI’s GROC series (review). She recorded Il barbiere di Siviglia twice and is represented here with a riveting Una voce poco fa from the Glyndebourne-based stereo remake with Vittorio Gui conducting and Sesto Bruscantini an unforgettable Figaro. She also recorded Madama Butterfly twice. The first set, conducted by Gavazzeni and with an ardent Giuseppe Di Stefano as Pinkerton, was reviewed on MusicWeb International last year (2008). It is, to my mind, preferable to the later one, from which the excerpts here are culled. There are two reasons for that: Santini’s conducting is rather bland and Jussi Björling, for all his excellence, had a voice already marked by heart problems, which were to cut his life short less than a year after the recording was made. De los Angeles herself was also in marginally fresher voice on the earlier set – but this does not imply that her singing here is anything less than ravishing.

The French excerpts on CD 3 are, if possible, even more attractive. Her Manon with Monteux has been the benchmark version ever since it was released. The stereo remake of Faust with the same forces as on the five year older mono version also has claims to be the most recommendable – in spite of some discrepancies in the sound. Gedda is a supreme Faust - the only one to surpass him among vintage sets is his compatriot Björling on the live broadcast from the Met 1950 (now on Naxos, see review). The Werther excerpts, recorded ten years after Faust, reveal a slight deterioration in tone quality – the years hadn’t passed unnoticed. Such is her charm that one doesn’t mind. EMI’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann from the mid-1960s was, I believe, intended to be the recording that out-did all the competition. With Gedda in the title role and de los Angeles, Schwarzkopf and Callas as the three heroines, this might well have happened. But Callas dropped out and the rest of the cast didn’t quite live up to expectations. Still Victoria de los Angeles’ Antonia is stylish and sensitive. Almost half an hour from Beecham’s classic Carmen is included on this disc. Her less than animal approach contrasts with Maria Callas’ larger-than-life reading. De los Angeles offers an alluring interpretation – understated perhaps but human – and proves that there is more than one way of making Carmen come alive. Gedda is again superb and de los Angeles has tiger claws hidden behind the noble façade.

The popular songs on CD 4 are, as I have already implied, indelibly etched into my memory in these versions. Hearing them again was a true trip of nostalgia. Several of them are art songs, though with discreet orchestral backing to suit a wider audience. Listen, for example, to her phrasing of the old schlager La paloma. Has it ever been sung with such lovely inflexions?

I believe that one has to be more or less born into the zarzuela tradition. In recorded history only Spanish singers have really made their mark in this sometimes elusive repertoire. Conchita Supervia before the war and then de los Angeles, Berganza and Caballé are certainly the finest exponents. I love all three of them and can’t really prefer one above the others but de los Angeles certainly pulls a certain string in my nervous system. Of present day singers Ana Maria Sánchez is a worthy successor, more overtly dramatic.

Canteloube’s Chants d’Auvergne have been successfully recorded a number of times during the last fifty years or so. I have for many years now had a special liking for Frederica von Stade and feel a healthy respect towards Kiri Te Kanawa, maybe the most beautiful of all. I haven’t heard Véronique Gens, but her Naxos recordings of the songs have received almost unanimous praise. Being French she is also linguistically closer to the idiom. On the other hand the Auvergne dialects are at least as close to Spanish as to French – readers with a closer knowledge may like to contradict me. I have always felt that Victoria de los Angeles’s recordings – originally issued on two LPs – had a stamp of authenticity. The drawback with them is that they were made rather late in her career. The majority were set down as late as September 1974, when she was past fifty. Is there a sharper edge to her voice? It is hard to tell if it is the acoustic or the voice, but it is easy to be lenient with this when there is so much feeling, humour and sense of style – her hallmarks as always.

All of this is material that I am familiar with. On the last two discs there are things I haven’t come across before. CD 6, devoted to art songs, opens with a dozen French songs. She was always a masterly interpreter of that repertoire. La Flûte enchantée is enchanting and Georges Prêtre makes the most of the luminous and transparent orchestration. Duparc with orchestra is less common but the intimate atmosphere of L’invitation au voyage is retained even so. The Debussy and Fauré songs are precious miniatures. It is good to have two more Hahn songs – she sings his L’Enamourée in the popular programme on CD 4. The Schubert and Brahms songs are old friends from a Seraphim anthology of German Lieder, bought in the 1970s. Vergebliches Ständchen, lively and engaged, is especially communicative.

The duets with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau are also little gems, sung with the utmost simplicity. Dvo?ák’s Möglichkeit has haunted me for days since I first played it. The concluding two songs are from the famous Royal Festival Hall concert that paid homage to Gerald Moore. The recording is more distant but fully acceptable and it’s a pity there wasn’t room for Rossini’s Cat Duet with Schwarzkopf.

On the final disc we get some highlights from her native Spanish repertoire – and not only the best known works. Manuel de Falla’s two colourful ballets are splendid openers with the introduction to El sombrero de tres picos dramatic and uplifting with chorus and rolling timpani and lovely singing in the excerpts from El amor brujo. I grew up with the roughly contemporaneous RCA recording with Leontyne Price, Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony. De los Angeles lacks those raw, primitive chest-notes relished by Price but darkens the timbre in that direction in a more refined reading. Giulini draws playing from the Philharmonia Orchestra to challenge even the Chicago sound.

Victoria de los Angeles recorded Siete canciones populares españolas as early as 1951 with Gerald Moore at the piano (recently issued by Nimbus, see review). There is little to choose between that version and the one on this disc, recorded ten years later with Gonzalo Soriano. Among competing recordings Teresa Berganza’s is a favourite, but since she is accompanied by guitar it is not strictly a competitor, rather an alternative. Montsalvatge’s Cinco canciones negras was also recorded by Berganza, with piano accompaniment, while de los Angeles prefers the more colourful orchestral version. Both readings are highly attractive. The Canciones sefardies are enormously beautiful, sung with simple naturalness and the arrangements add further beauty, the flute blending exquisitely with the voice. In Lorca’s Canciones populares españolas her voice is at its creamiest. They are sung lightly and are rhythmically alive.

Of the remaining items the long aria from Goyescas is a masterpiece. Valverde’s Clavelitos! is full of joy. In Adiós, Granada she accompanies herself on the guitar in her own arrangement.

Seven discs well-filled with ‘The Voice of an Angel’ may seem a daunting prospect. However with beauty of tone, charming delivery and the singer’s communicative personality there isn’t a dull moment. There is anyway no need to play it through from beginning to end. This box is a treasure-trove to pick and choose from and as such it should last a lifetime.
