Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI
Under Albrecht's direction, the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI gave a sympathetic account of an iridescent score that ranges from exotic reminiscences of Japan to the impressions of a large city and from the atmospheric portrait of a doomed love story to a drama about juvenile violence, all strands of which are tightly interwoven right up to the moment of the final fatal confrontation in the closing scene of the opera.
The cast includes three outstanding singing actors, the soprano Mari Midorikawa, the tenor Jun Takahashi and the baritone Tsuyoshi Mihara, all of whom create gripping portraits of the widow Fusako Kuroda, her 13-year-old son and the boy's stepfather.
The recording affords further proof of the Salzburg Festival's ongoing commitment to broadening its repertory and to its desire to juxtapose the old and the new in thrilling ways that never compromise on quality.
