Arlington Heights Daily Herald (Newspaper) - May 2, 1980, Arlington Heights, Illinois 6�?section 3 Friday May 2, 1980 the daily Herald Solti 4 fidelio Subtle Majestic for sir Georg Solti the temptation must have been great to make his recording of Beethoven so Fidel Ion a sonic blockbuster of olympian Porpor tons. Why because Solti had the new digital recording process of Decca Lon Don records at his disposal at Medinah Temple last May and this was to be the first digitally recorded opera. Thankfully Solti resisted the temptation and has conducted a a Fidel Ion of stately majesty but Well within the framework of the classical period Beethoven a final revisions of the score premiered in 1814. The new recording London digital 3ldr i of 17 succeeds much More for what it does no to try4o be. This is Solti at his artistic Heights no a storm and stress Here and for that we can be thankful. Solti has expressed an intent to re record Wagner so tristan und Isolde in Chicago. It will be interesting to compare that interpretation with his Vienna recording of the mid-1950s. Solti has benefited by waiting until his mid to late 60s to record a fidelio a As he also waited until recent years to record the Beethoven and Brahms symphonies. This is a fully mature Conception of the score in every respect. The total dramatic line that underlies the classic Story of love and Freedom from Many a inhumanity to Man is sustained from the opening overture through the climactic chorus a Heil Heil Seil Sei dem tag a Soltis extensive career in the opera houses of the world which ironically was launched by a performance of a Fidel Ion in Stuttgart in 1946, is Bill Gowen classical music Well documented in this recording. The drama and sweep of events Are All in place but the conductor never intrudes on Beethoven a score in the idiosyncratic Way demonstrated by Leonard Bernstein in his 1979 Vienna philharmonic recording. Of course Solti has help an excellent cast and the magnificent resources of the Chicago symphony orchestra and chorus. He has created a masterpiece a living Monument to his decade As so music director. A Fidel Ion is a part of the repertory like the Beethoven and Brahms symphonies where a Large number of impressive recordings already exist. But As in those symphony cycles Solti has succeeded admirably in direct comparison. The Best a Fidel Ion to Date is the Otto Klemperer version on Angel probably the mount Everest of the famous Klemperer philharmonic orchestra Era a collaboration and an orchestra itself created after world War ii expressly for the late Klemperer by Emi producer Walter Legge. Klemperer also has an excellent cast for his recording including a Youthful Tenor Jon Vickers As Flores Tan and Christa Ludwig in the role of Leonora disguised As fidelio. Ludwig by the Way will record the Mahler Short settles in for the Long run new York a two decades ago Bobby Short the Debonair Singer pianist was offered a Job at a smart set bite Here called the Blue Angel.

Solti has chosen a Brilliant Young dramatic Soprano Hildegard Behrens As his Leonora and she gives a magnificent performance in All respects. It is easy to envision her future As a wagnerian Soprano in the Nilsson tradition. My one reservation about the cast is Peter Hofmannn a florestan. Although his great aria a Gott Welch Dunkel Hier a is supposed to reflect the Travail of an unjustly imprisoned Man the pureness of tone is weak at the climactic moments such As him Lische Reich a Hofmannn a concert performances Here were much More impressive indicating possible illness at the time of the recording sessions. Vickers is much More impressive in the Klemperer recording and the great Canadian Tenor restated his Mastery of the role in his later recording with Herbert von Karajan. The other major roles in the Solti set Are Sung superbly Theo Adams Don Pizarro Sona ghazarians Marcelline or Renton nil Oyster Lover every monday is your night at David Kuebler a Aquino and the Rocco of Hans so tin. Margaret Hillist Chicago symphony chorus is impeccable As usual in the prisoners chorus and the concluding Peoples chorus of liberation. In be left the recordings engineering to last because the performance transcends All else in this Case. The Decca engineers have wisely used the digital process As a Means of improving Quality from existing recording philosophies rather than using it As a Means to bum out the fuses in the listeners amplifier or speakers. They must be applauded for resisting such temptation.
