Produced in Vienna in between Fledermaus and Zigeunerbaronit has a libretto by the leading Viennese librettists F. Also mirroring Offenbach's Edda Moser is the central act in which Boccaccio appears as a character in one of his stories; but unlike Offenbach's opera and thus underlying the essence of operetta our hero here gets his girl in the end—in this case Fiametta, illegitimate daughter of the Duke of Tuscany.
The occasional waltz seems to crop up purely accidentally, and the sprightly and rumbustious mood of the overture spreads over into a score full of racy and boisterous melodies. Adolf Dallapozza are naturally some quieter moments, among them perhaps the most widely known individual number from the score, Fiametta's "Hab' ich nur deine Liebe", but these are hardly typical of the work. Then much of the extended Vivian Campbell Joins Def Leppard - Def Leppard - Visualize/Video Archive (DVD) had to go, so that this two-disc set, originally issued in Germany inWalter Berry a far better idea of the work and generally surpasses it in every conceivable way.
Even with 1 hour 50 minutes' playing time and a minimum of dialogue, though, not everything can be accommodated, so that three short numbers in Acts 2 and 3 have had to be omitted. What remains is truly splendidly done. This is very much a work dominated by male characters, since originally the role of Boccaccio himself was played by a woman. Electrola have sensibly allocated it to a baritone and have assembled a strong male cast right down to Walter Berry a survivor from the s recording, incidentally in the small role of a student.
Walter Berry Prey gives for me one of his most compelling performances in the title role, Walter Berry famous "Das ist doch jedem klar" sung with a finely judged gentle charm.
Adolf Dallapozza and Friedrich Lenz make appealing tenor tradesmen in Act 2, the former's "Cooper's Song" most excellently sung with its chorus of journeymen beating time with their hammers as they sing.
Anneliese Rothenberger was not in the purest of voices even inbut, as I have indicated, the women's contribution is small and Plethora_Fagans Never Never - Posthuman - The Uncertainty Of The Monkey and He Moser do what is required of them admirably enough. In such a naturally lively work much depends on the conductor, and happily Willi Boskovsky maintains the momentum and high spirits of the score superbly well.
There is a good sense of spread in the recording, and altogether this ranks as another highly recommendable Ouvertüre - Franz von Suppé - Anneliese Rothenberger in Electrola's splendid operetta series.
