EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

*** Résumé en anglais seulement ***

Hans Pfitzners musical legend Palestrina was first performed during the height of the First World War, a period when sensitive minds such as Pfitzners felt uneasy about the cultural scene of bourgeois society. Even then, when the headlong descent into Nazi tyranny was still a long way off, the composer saw himself as an artist representing an era that was rapidly drawing to its close. He therefore projected his own situation onto the historical personality of the 16th-century composer Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, who was credited with saving the art of contrapuntal church music during the Council of Trent. Like all artists, the composer treated the facts rather freely to suit his own artistic intentions. He recycles thematic material from Palestrinas Missa Papae Marcelli, the work that allegedly settled the argument back in the uncertain days of the 16th century, after the upset of Martin Luther. As the librettist as well as composer, Pfitzner certainly moulds the truth to suit his own situation, and he backs up his artistic licence with some solemn, powerful and audaciously pastiche music, imbued with archaisms borrowed from Palestrina and his contemporaries. He adds to these Wagnerian motifs, such as the bells that symbolise the Catholic Church. Pfitzner portrays a composer who refuses to allow his music to be abused for bolstering the power of the Church. Palestrinas crisis, brought on by the loss of his office, his faith and his wife, as well as by the new style emanating from Florence, reflects the crisis of Pfitzners own world in which art is needed only to preserve the existing order, not to seek out new horizons. This dramatic opera was recorded live in the Schauspielhaus, Berlin, giving it a powerful sense of space and atmosphere. Otmar Suitner is a conductor of great experience and sympathy with the work, and the title role is played by Peter Schreier who sings with great intelligence, deep expression and care for words, and with the slightly piercing, fundamentally German tenor sound for which the role was surely conceived (Gramophone). First performed in 1917 in Munich (conducted by Bruno Walter), Pfitzners opera on the great 16th-century composer Palestrina became popular with those in German musical society who had become hostile to the direction which Schoenberg and Busoni had taken. Composed in traditional late romantic style it has a particularly Wagnerian flavour, a kind of catholic Meistersinger with hints of Palestrinian counterpoint and plainchant. A superb cast in this exciting live recording from Berlin: Peter Schreier, Siegfried Lorenz, Rosemarie Lang and the Staatskapelle Berlin conducted by the great Otmar Suitner, a specialist in late romantic repertoire.
