Product Description

CD83914 Elektra ROH CG 1997 Polaski/Mattila/Palmer

In 1997 there was a series of performances of "Elektra", and various cast changes. On the 13th May the title role was sung by Deborah Polaski and Chrysothemis by Karita Mattila. John Allison in "Opera" ( now the editor) thought that "the notoriously `unsingable` role cannot have had all that many better interpreters ` than Polaski and that "karita Mattila's Chrysothemis matched her both musically and dramatically'.

This cast was not broadcast, and this in-house recording by the kindness of a friend is raw and harsh ( appropriately ?)…well it's no lullaby after all….so if you listen to it, be prepared for a very moderate level of audio pleasure. If a better recording is lurking on someone's shelf, please show it the light of day.

Best wishes Roger D Bell Lancashire England
