Der Ring des Polykrates (The Ring of Polykrates), Op. 7 is a one-act opera by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. The libretto, written by Leo Feld and reworked (unattributed) by the composer’s father Julius Korngold, is based on a drama by Heinrich Teweles.Korngold composed the opera (his first) in 1914, when he was only seventeen years old.The one-act domestic comedy was contrasted by his second opera Violanta, a one-act tragedy.Both were premiered together on 28 March 1916 at the National Theatre Munich. Bruno Walter conducted and the cast included Karl Erb and Maria Ivogün.Both operas were repeated in Vienna, with Selma Kurz and Alfred Piccaver in Polykrates and Maria Jeritza as Violanta.


Ernst Krenek (Viena, 23 de agosto de 1900 – Palm Springs (California), 22 de diciembre de 1991) fue un compositor austriaco nacionalizado en 1945 estadounidense. Procedía de una familia checa, pero Krenek insistió siempre que su apellido debía escribirse Krenek y no Křenek, y que debía pronunciarse como una palabra alemana. Krenek experimentó con la atonalidad y otros estilos contemporáneos, incluidos el dodecafonismo y el jazz. También redactó numerosos libros sobre música, entre otros un estudio sobre Johannes Ockeghem (1953). Otros títulos son: Música aquí y ahora (1939) y Horizontes circulares: reflexiones sobre mi música (1974).

Shortly after he completed his tragic opera Der Diktator, Ernst Krenek started work on another one-act opera whose subtitle (Märchenoper – fairy tale opera) already suggests that it is set in an entirely different world, with regard to both the message and the music. Today, Das geheime Königreich would probably be described as a “green” work: it proclaims the advantages of life away from power, away from towns, away from civilisation – amidst nature, the secret kingdom where the tortured ruler in Krenek’s libretto finally finds peace.

Rabagliati was born in Milan.In 1927 he moved to Hollywood as the winner of a Rudolph Valentino look-alike contest. He later recalled: “For someone like me, who had seen no more than Lake Como or Monza cathedral so far, finding myself on board a luxury steamer with three cases full of clothes, a few rolls of dollars, gran-duchesses and countesses flirting with me was something extraordinary”.

Back in Europe he became a singer. After a brief experience with Pippo Barzizza‘s orchestra, he joined the Lecuona Cuban Boys, a Cuban band. He performed with his face painted black and made a hit with the song “Maria la O”.

While with the Lecuona Cuban Boys he met Giovanni D’Anzi who proposed him an audition with Italian state radio station EIAR. Rabagliati soon became a radio star, and in 1941 had his own radio show. Every Monday night EIAR aired Canta Rabagliati (“Rabagliati sings”), with the singer presenting his most famous songs such as “Ma l’amore no”, “Mattinata fiorentina”, “Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina”, “Silenzioso slow”, “Bambina innamorata”.

He was so popular that his name was sung in the lyrics of La famiglia canterinaQuando canta RabagliatiQuando la radio. At a time when anything foreign was banned, the idol Rabagliati was allowed to maintain his American-influenced style. Indeed, the Fascist government decided to make use of his popularity by choosing his song “Sposi (c’è una casetta piccina)” (“Wed (there’s a little home)”) as their demographic campaign anthem

His fame as a singer helped his acting career restart. From 1940 to 1965 he starred in some twenty movies, including The Barefoot ContessaMontecarlo and Il vedovo. In 1966, he starred in The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t.

Rabagliati was active also on the stage until the mid 1950s. He performed in musical revues and comedies by Garinei and Giovannini.His last public appearance was in 1974.

Maria Riccara Wesseling

Charles Simon Catel étudia à Paris à l’École royale de chant. Il fut chef assistant de François-Joseph Gossec auprès de l’orchestre de la Garde Nationale en 1790. Membre de l’Institut, il composa avec ce maître de beaux morceaux de musique militaire pour les cérémonies de la République, entre autres l’Hymne à la Victoire (paroles de Ponce-Denis Écouchard-Lebrun). Il fut nommé professeur d’harmonie au Conservatoire dès la création, mais il fut destitué en 1814. Il eut entre autres comme élève au conservatoire le célèbre et excentrique harpiste Nicolas Bochsa qui, grâce à son enseignement, obtint un premier prix d’harmonie en 1808.

On a de lui un Traité d’harmonie (1802) ; plusieurs compositions dramatiques (au Grand-Opéra : Sémiramis, les Bayadères ; à l’Opéra-Comique : les Artistes par occasionl’Auberge de Bagnères, 1807 ; Wallace, 1817) ; des symphonies, des quatuors, etc.

Sans être un compositeur de tout premier plan, Catel est un brillant coloriste utilisant des effets instrumentaux nouveaux. Dans l’ouverture de son opéra Sémiramis, le passage où les trois trombones dialoguent avec les cordes seules étaient particulièrement apprécie.

Parte 1:
Parte 2:

Of aristocratic background, Déodat de Séverac was profoundly influenced by the musical tradition of his native Languedoc. He is noted for his vocal and choral music, which include settings of verse in Provençal (the historic language of Languedoc) and Catalan (the historic language of Roussillon) as well as French poems by Verlaine and Baudelaire. His compositions for solo piano have also won critical acclaim, and many of them were titled as pictorial evocations and published in the collections En Languedoc and Baigneuses au soleil. A popular example of his work is The Old Musical Box in B-flat major, but his masterpiece is the suite Cerdaña (written 1904—1911), filled with the local color of Languedoc. His motet Tantum ergo is also still sung on occasion.

He left his native Toulouse to study in Paris, under Vincent d’Indy and Albéric Magnard at the Schola Cantorum, an alternative to the training offered by the Paris Conservatoire. He worked as an assistant to Isaac Albéniz and returned to the south of France, where he spent the rest of his rather short life. His opera Héliogabale was produced at Béziers in 1910.

Texte : Jean Anouilh (1951). Coupé pour l’adaptation lyrique, avec l’autorisation de l’auteur. Musique : Jean-Michel Damase (1961)

Stylistiquement, on se situe quelque part entre les raffinements du Strauss des conversations de musique (Intermezzo et Capriccio, mais pas sans rapport avec le lyrisme de Der Rosenkavalier et surtout Arabella) et le ton plus français (badin et bigarré) de Poulenc, mais sans la grandiloquence de l’un ni la grisaille de l’autre – une forme de quadrature du cercle.

En somme, du vaudeville assez grinçant de Jean Anouilh, où personne n’est épargné (Julien vertueux mais égoïste, Colombe superficielle au fil de sa nécessaire émancipation), Damase produit quelque chose de plus touchant, avec des profils très imparfaits évidemment, mais terriblement attachants. Et la séduction mélodique de son récitatif, la couleur de son orchestre léger, la poussée constamment allante de sa musique n’y sont pas pour rien.

Il est réellement triste que cette oeuvre, parmi d’autres bijoux, ne soit pas accessible autrement que par les réseaux de passionnés, alors qu’on enregistre tant de fois les mêmes scies. Il existe réellement des répertoires à la fois de première qualité et séduisants pour un vaste public qui demandent légitimement à être sauvés de l’oubli. En l’occurrence, c’est en plus en français, donc facile d’accès pour le public concerné. Peut-être aussi les conservatoires, dans leurs spectacles de fin d’année, plutôt que de jouer maladroitement des scies, pourraient se pencher sur ces oeuvres pas trop difficiles et assez efficaces. Il est sûr en revanche que ça ne prépare pas les interprètes à des rôles qui seraient amenés à soutenir leur carrière pendant des années…
