Andres Moreno Garcia
Chor und Orchester der Berliner Operngruppe
It was Illica who gave birth to the idea of an opera about Japan. Exotic subjects set in distant lands were in vogue throughout Europe at the time, particularly those set in the Far East. It was Mascagni’s express wish to write ‘original’ music for this specific material, something that was previously unheard-of.
This performance featuring the choir and orchestra of the Berliner Operngruppe under Felix Krieger is a live recording of the Berlin premiere of the original version of the opera. The venue was the Konzerthaus Berlin. The Berliner Operngruppe was celebrating its 10th anniversary.
“The impression made by the orchestra of the Berliner Operngruppe under Felix Krieger was overwhelming, who brilliantly conveyed Mascagni's multi-layered music with its shimmering strings, the impressionistic-melancholy mood and the luxuriant melody.” – Bernd Hoppe, Opera Lounge
