Hi-Res Booklet
The subject of Gottfried von Einem's opera Der Besuch der alten Dame [The Visit], after Dürrenmatt's work of the same name, is no less sinister and cynical. A small, economically and socially ruined town which has been forgotten by the world receives a visit from the titular Dame, a millionaire who had grown up there, and who was left poor and pregnant. She wants to restore the town to its former glory, but she has one rather tricky condition: that a local agrees to kill her former lover, who had produced two false witnesses – who, now blinded and castrated, have become servants to the Dame. At first, the town proudly refuses, and then hesitates, vacillates, prevaricates, doesn't know what to do... Finally, the former lover dies "on his own", from a heart attack. The Vienna Opera didn't hold back for this fantastic and enjoyable 1971 opera (the recording is of the world première). Christa Ludwig played the Dame – although she was still young, barely 40! –, Eberhard Waechter played the accused former lover, and Hans Hotter, Kurt Equiluz and many more feature in the cast, under the direction of the old(then young) pro, Horst Stein. Gottfried von Einem's music, following in the footsteps of Strauss but with a certain mischievous modernist je-ne-sais-quoi, offers a first-class frame for this lyrical pearl, which ought to be played more often in France, where directors seem set on drowning us in an incessant cocktail of Puccini, Verdi, Mozart, Donizetti and Bizet… © SM/Qobuz
