Just returned from “Wozzeck”–a tremendous event. Simon Keenlyside is most gracious when giving autographs.
More comments later.

It was a wonderful evening. Simon sang with such depth of feeling and such intensity, drawing the audience into the intimate world that he created with each song, his voice so flexible and so resonant. I have been fortunate enough to hear him sing several times recently: in London and Munich in March, at Cambridge in April and twice this month. He is such a versatile singer, able to adapt his voice to suit a very wide range of styles – something that not all opera singers can do and of course, as we all know, he is a born entertainer. It has been amazing hearing him this year, well more than amazing really….. I am saving up for next year now and will find the next few months very dull and dreary by comparison with the last few.

Grande concerto. Simon piega la sua voce ambrata ad ogni esigenza del testo e della musica, i suoi piani e i suoi pianissimi hanno il candore e la delicatezza dell’ eterna giovinezza e sanno rendere alla perfezione i sospiri,i timori ,le ansie ,gli amori dell’uomo. Martineau lo sostiene con intelligenza e sensibilità.

English Translation: Great concert. Simon bends his amber voice to every demand of the text and music, his piano and his pianissimo have the candor and delicacy of eternal youth and know how to make perfectly sighs, fears, anxieties, love of man . Martineau supports him with intelligence and sensitivity.

What a fantastic program! Finally he got to sing the Wolf “Feurreiter” that he was supposed to perform in June 2011 at Wigmore. I hope there is a review or at least some personal impressions given by anybody fortunate enough to be there for this recital.

The concert was sung and played to a full house and tumultous applause in the beautiful Prinzregenten Theater. SK sang three additional songs. Hearing him in person is even more wonderful than listening to his recordings. His voice has a great range–note the song in which he imitates a young girl’s voice–and incredible control, from barely audible tones to the noise of fierce wind and desperate fire rider.

I am looking forward his next appearance in Munich, in Alban Berg’s “Wozzeck” on Sunday.

This is sad news, Petra! Will I see you for Wozzeck on Sunday?

Petra July 17, 2012 at 12:12 pm

No, Antonio, sadly NONE of the recitals (of the Festivals) are, were and will be broadcast – only the opening nights of operas.

Antonio July 17, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Thank you!!!! Has it been broadcast?

I hope somebody (Petra?) will give a detailed desecription of this recital and complete the program that is only sketched out above.
Thanks. Bill
