Notes and Editorial Reviews

Celebratory album sets are nothing new. And those looking for smuggled novelties in this 5 CD album will look in vain. There are no unpublished Busch-directed performances; no unearthed Gui. The box is devoted, perfectly reasonably, to the established record.

The box cover sets the scene. A contented sheep grazes in the foreground; toffs graze in the background. There are hampers. The men all look very tall and lean. The women are all elegantly decked out. It’s the archetypical Glyndebourne afternoon.

Inside we have, in the main, the standard EMI transfers of old friends. The exceptions include the 2009 transfers of the first three
Read more selections from the Busch Marriage of Figaro, five tracks from the The Beggar’s Opera, The Soldier’s Tale, and all the post-War Gui Figaro extracts. The transfers are in any case non-problematic.

A sampler such as this will inevitably hit on highlights. The first CD takes pre-War Mozart. Figaro’s extracts last about a quarter of an hour and allow one to sample Audrey Mildmay, Domgraf-Fassbaender and Aulikki Rautawaara. Così lasts a little longer and we can hear all the principal singers, which is a satisfactory solution, given that Heddle Nash didn’t make the earlier Figaro selection. Don Giovanni was the last of the three Mozart operas conducted by Busch to be recorded. This has the longest run of excerpts; seven minutes from Act I including (inevitably) Leporello’s Madamina - the Leporello was Salvatore Baccaloni. There are about 22 minutes from Act II and these extracts allow us to hear John Brownlee’s Don, David Franklin (the Commendatore) and Mildmay’s Zerlina, as well as the Act II epilogue. The 1940 recording of Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera is something of a classic. Mildmay and Roy Henderson, often too wooden a singer, are here. Michael Redgrave is Macheath. In all there are about ten minutes included.

The second disc begins in the immediate post-War period with Reginald Goodall’s recording of The Rape of Lucretia. Unlike the Busch recordings, but like the Gay, these extracts were recorded at Abbey Road in London. These extracts last nine minutes. Other highlights of this second disc include Busch’s all-too-brief return with Così and Idomeneo - Sena Jurinac in both - and Gui’s La Cenerentola. Rather more uncommon is Pritchard’s 1954 Busoni Arlecchino extract, from the same year these forces gave the British stage premiere. The following year the conductor was in the studio with Glyndebourne forces to record The Soldier’s Tale with Helpmann, Terence Longdon and Anthony Nicholls, alongside the elite RPO chamber ensemble (Leavins, Brymer, Brooke, Walton).

More rejuvenatory Mozart starts disc three. It’s Gui’s Figaro represented by about nineteen minutes of the performance which featured Jurinac, Sciutti, Bruscantini, Calabrese and other equally persuasive front-liners. Gui was, after Busch’s death, effectively the house’s music director from 1952 to 1964. The second Idomeneo, directed by Pritchard, features different extracts from the Busch, thankfully. Gui’s eminence as a Rossini conductor is clearly not overlooked; though the Comte Ory examples are brief it’s inevitable perhaps that the Barber of Seville should take up the lion’s share. De Los Angeles’s appearance is a coup. But I wouldn’t overlook the final scene from Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea where Richard Lewis and Magda László perform Raymond Leppard’s edition with exquisite romanticism under Pritchard’s direction. Glyndebourne was the first British professional company to stage a work from the early baroque, as George Hall’s notes remind us.

Mozart is a constant in the Glyndebourne story and the fourth disc is given over entirely to him. Pritchard is on hand once again, in 1972, for Die Entführung with Margaret Price, Ryland Davies and Noel Mangin in an abridged LP. In the 1980s Haitink was a regular visitor and his Don Giovanni and Così are documented. These traversals are well known, naturally enough, though it’s still pleasurable to sample the sets. For Figaro in 1987 he had in his cast Rolandi, Desderi, and Lott. The last incarnation of the famous 1988 Rattle-directed Porgy and Bess was in a big box of Americana collated from Rattle’s many recordings. There it was in toto; here clearly we only have room and time for about twenty minutes’ worth, though most of the stand-out numbers. Felicity Lott and Thomas Hampson are on hand for Lehár. A signpost towards the house’s interest in and propagation of new music comes in the shape of Jonathan Dove’s Figures in the Garden. The composer conducts members of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. And finally we have a slice of probably justified auto back-slapping. This comes via the EMI Centenary Gala at Glyndebourne in 1987 with Welser-Möst and Andrew Davis presiding, and some superior vocal talent running through favourites.

It ends a box that necessarily charts the decades adeptly but selectively. The booklet has full running details, cast lists and recorded information.
