This performance of Mozart's opera "Die Entführung aus dem Serail, K. 384," is led by the conductor and countertenor René Jacobs, an artist associated with the historical performance movement, and is accompanied by the Akademie für alte Musik Berlin, an ensemble of which the same is true. It is, however, anything but a historical performance; rather it is one featuring radical innovation. This is the last of a cycle of major Mozart operas by Jacobs, and it offers the fast tempi, tough, vigorous spirit, and dramatic insight that have generally characterized the others. The treatment of Mozart's semi-serious opera about the rescue of a woman held in the compound of a Turkish nobleman, however, is entirely novel. "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" is a Singspiel, a German-language opera in which the vocal numbers are interspersed with spoken dialogue, not recitatives. Jacobs has personally rewritten this dialogue into straightforward contemporary German, and if that weren't enough, accompanies it with fortepiano improvisations that comment on the action. This has a very curious effect akin to the texture of a silent film, and it's going to rub listeners in necessarily individual ways. Jacobs' aim is to get rid of the stop-start quality endemic to the Singspiel, and it must be said that whatever you think of the method, he accomplishes his goal. The best way to look at this performance is that if you take it on its own terms, it succeeds. Cutting the pauses between the dialogue sections and the arias down to a fraction of a second, Jacobs creates natural transitions between the dialogue and the set pieces. This quality is set against the spectacular vocal virtuosity of the music, and the effect is of a basic flow that from time to time explodes into technical fireworks like Konstanze's "Martern aller Arten" (CD one, track 22). Sample soprano Robin Johannsen here; to these ears, she's remarkable. In general, without performers who were as persuasive as actors as they were as singers, this interpretation would have been disastrous. But Jacobs shapes the whole thing into what he wants. It may still be too strange for you, but it's bold in the best way

Jpc: Das Ensemble Concerto" Melante"(der Name ist ein Anagramm von" Telemann"), hat bereits für seine erste CD" Spirituosa"herausragende Besprechungen bekommen:" Wer denkt Telemann zu kennen, sollte sich diese CD zulegen, damit seine Kenntnisse gehörig erweitert werden". (Toccata) Zum Telemann- Jubiläum in diesem Jahr hat sich das Ensemble, welches aus Mitgliedern der Berliner Philharmoniker, der Akademie für Alte Musik und anderer renommierter Ensemble besteht, erneut auf die Suche nach verlorenen Schätzen Telemanns gemacht und ist fündig geworden. Concerto Melante entdeckte die beiden Kantaten" Sey tausendmahl willkommen"( TVWV 13: 9a) und" Du bleibest dennoch unser Gott"(TVWV 13: 9b) sowie drei sehr interessante Kammermusiksonaten (TWV 42: e7 und e: 8 , TWV 43: G13), die sie auf diesem Album als Weltersteinspielungen präsentieren. Eine weitere Besonderheit ist der Choral" Ein feste Burg", der auf dem Album sowohl in vier verschiedenen Versionen des Originals von Johann Walter auf der Textgrundlage von Martin Luther wie auch als Motette von Telemann zu hören ist. Eine Art musikalischer" Gottesdienst"nicht nur im Zeichen des Telemann-Jubiläums, sondern auch des Reformationsjahrs
