About

Yes, there is such a thing: an opera, not an operetta, by Franz von Suppé, through-composed and Italian in its dramatic character – which is hardly surprising from a man who was Donizetti’s distant nephew! Des Matrosen Heimkehr was a commissioned work for the Hamburg Opera, but this recording of this romantic work does not draw on the textual circumstances of the Hamburg premiere, during which Anton Langer’s original text was performed. The Italian version, whose translator remains unknown, is found in the piano reduction published by August Cranz of Hamburg and in part in Suppé’s manuscript score, housed today in Vienna’s City and State Library. The Italian version is also the better medium for the Italian character of the music. The Suppé biographer Roser then was also justified in terming it ‘magnificent music’, and the Vienna magazine Die Lyra praised the ‘fine attractive appeal, charmingly enthralling melodies’. This recording represents a successful pioneering effort that once again showcases a forgotten work from a neglected genre – the opera oeuvre of Franz von Suppé.
