Eugen D'Albert
 
 
 
 
Eugen d’Albert, in full Eugen Francis Charles d’Albert, Eugen also spelled Eugène (born April 10, 1864, Glasgow, Scot.—died March 3, 1932, Riga, Latvia), naturalized German composer and piano virtuoso best remembered for his opera Tiefland (1903) and his arrangements and transcriptions of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

After receiving his basic musical training in London, where he enjoyed his first triumphs as a pianist, d’Albert went for further study to Vienna, where he became a friend of Franz Liszt. D’Albert toured widely and successfully and taught for many years in Berlin, but his chief interest lay in composition. He wrote 21 operas, 2 piano concerti, chamber music, lieder, piano pieces, and a few orchestral works.

Eugen d'Albert Die Abreise, Hermann Prey, Edda Moser, Peter Schreier
 
Musical Comedy in One Act

Janos Kulka Conductor

"Die Abreise" ("The Departure") by Eugen d'Albert (1864-1932) is a little one-act operatic comedy for soprano, tenor, and baritone. The story, about a husband who is suspicious (with some good reason) that his wife is being wooed by one of his best friends, ends happily and sweetly, with renewed love between husband and wife. As opera it certainly doesn't aim very high, and this is part of its charm. The music is quite melodic, with, in truth, little that is especially memorable. Edda Moser, Hermann Prey, and Peter Schreier obviously enjoy the good humor of this little drama and sing beautifully.

Eugen D'Albert: TIEFLAND
 
Hoch- und Tiefland stehen auch in der Oper, die in der Krassheit ihres Plots als seltenes Beispiel des deutschen Verismo gilt, symbolisch befrachtet einander gegenüber. „Unschuldig" erscheinen auf den ersten Blick, die nur schwer zugänglichen Höhen, die Welt des Hirten Pedro, der sich mit seinen Lämmern besser auskennt als mit den Menschen. Unangefochtener Herr des "sündhaften" Tieflands ist Sebastiano, der Macht über alles und jeden zu haben scheint - auch über verestreute Hirten des Hochlandes. Doch dieser Eindruck täuscht offensichtlich...
Dirigent: Yves Abel | Inszenierung: Roland Schwab | Mit Petra Maria Schnitzer, Peter Seiffert, Samuel Youn u.a.
