HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Supraphon) Antonin Dvorak – Rusalka (Neumann)

front-small-boxset Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this stunning beauty
I gather that this work is revered in Czeck republic. Dvorak’s early attempts at opera were poor, as he felt constrained to produce rather Wagnerian works, which ultimately came to be silly. When he returned to his folky inclinations, and Symphonic sensibilities, this was the result. Gabriela Benackova as Rusalka is in splendid voice here and Vera Soukupova sounds delightfully Slavonic as Jezibaba, the Witch. The music is amazing, even the libretto is moving…and the “Moon” aria by Rusalka (track A5) is among the most beautiful arias in operatics.
