Essential: A masterpiece of Progressive-Rock music
Anyone’s Daughter bursts into the scene of German Symphonic-Progressive in the late 70s, with this powerful pressing.
There’s no denying the influence of Genesis, they manage to print their own stamp thanks to their effective vocalist. I’m a fan of the Anyone’s Daughter, there I read an acid criticism towards them for the bad pronunciation of English in this LP … hmm … a matter of taste. In any case, I also defend the mother tongues, but, in the subject of music, it is common knowledge that it is easier to reach everyone with the language of Wilde… hmm, I believe.

Johann Christoph Pepusch’s English-language masque Venus and Adonis premiered at London’s Theatre Royal on 12 March 1715. Inspired by the operas of composers like Giovanni Battista Bononcini and Alessandro Scarlatti, it was the most substantial effort of the period to ‘reconcile Musick to the English Tongue.’

Keiser dominated the Hamburg opera scene between 1697, when Adonis was first performed, and 1717, resuming activities there some six years later. Christian Postel’s plot centres around Ovid’s celebrated account of the love affair between Adonis and Venus, who, in this version of the story is jealously watched over by Mars. Postel’s libretto is very long-winded and not well-sustained; but it offered Keiser the opportunity to provide over three-and-a-half hours of music, much of which, especially in Act III, is of enormous charm and variety. The score is a stylistic melting pot containing French and Italian ingredients as well as those of the German Lied. Some of the most beguiling music belongs to the minor roles – ‘Klagt, ihr Nymphen’ (Act III, Scene 9) brings to mind Purcell, and is among the most memorable of the arias. If the entire piece seems a daunting prospect, fear not, since arias from four of Keiser’s operas, including Adonis – though the booklet wrongly attributes one of these arias to a non-existent fourth act – appear on a single disc, sung with accomplishment and charm by Elisabeth Scholl with La Ricordanza. But the other offers a much more satisfying picture of Keiser’s ability as a dramatic composer.

This disc presents three vocal pieces for soprano with oboe and basso continuo, interspersed between four trio sonatas for 2 oboes & basso continuo.The first cantata "Mi palpita il cor" was written in England - there are four existing variants, but this presented here is probably the earliest, the date given here as 1717. The theme is typically pastoral, with the singer's amorous affliction, the sorrow and hope of being in love with Chloris. The second vocal piece "Meine Seele hort im Sehen" is one of Handel's nine German da capo arias written around 1724/25 which were never published; they were songs of spiritual devotion rejoicing in God's creation as manifested in the beauty of nature, and not intended for concert performance.

Nous connaissons tous la folie de certains dirigeants arabes, adeptes des massacres de leurs peuples, et leur haine des libertés publiques. Mais aujourd'hui, l'Etat islamique, prônant la charia, affiche une barbarie qui dépasse l'imagination. Sa vocation consisterait à nettoyer la terre d'islam de tout ce qui nuirait à sa pureté. Et au nom de cette pureté, les pires crimes sont commis : assassinats, viols, massacres des masses, pillages, ventes des femmes aux enchères, destructions des sites archéologiques et historiques…

John Blow described Venus and Adonis as a masque, but for all intents and purposes, it's an opera, as fully as Dido and Aeneas is, and it should make anyone who considers the Purcell the first English opera think again. The two works have much in common in their dramatic structure, subject matter, length, and level of musical expressiveness. Based on the quality of Blow's work, it's surprising that the piece isn't frequently programmed on a double bill with Dido and Aeneas…
