Product Description

CD87789 Julien by Charpentier - Dortmund 2001

Here is the sequel of Louise. A recording of this work has already been uploaded on OS in 2009, but the links are no longer active. I wish to make clear that this upload is not a copy of the previous one. This is my own recording, taped from a satellite source that I propose today. The first performance of Julien took place at the Opera-Comique of Paris, in 1913, a very bad time for theater. The Met performed it one year later with Caruso. No doubt that World War I has stopped the career of that work, never performed since these first years, until the revival of Dortmund. I'd like to provide a synopsis, but unfortunatelly, I don't have any one. If someone has one it'll be appreciated. The only thing I can say is that on the contrary of Louise the subject has nothing to do with naturalism. Charpentier has totally changed his style steered this time towards symbolism and poetry, as the titles he gave to each act prove it : act 1 : in the known country dream act 2 : Doubt act 3 : Powerlessness act 4 : Drunkeness Theorically, the opera is sung in original French, but don't bother if you don't understand. Natives don't understand any more. Just listen to the music, that's the main interest of this recording. Very good sound, bitrate 256 Kbps.

USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
