JAN BLOCKX - LIEFDELIED (Love Song) (integral audio recording)

Be the first to review this product

Liefdelied (Love Song) is the third part of the Blockx opera trilogy on city-life (Herbergprinses), sea-life (Bruid der Zee) and farm-life (Liefdelied). After the failed premiere in 191 it was only once revives, in the 1960. it is of this revival that we discovered a unique private recording. For those interested in Flemish opera, listening to this recordings (libretti and 150+ page Dutch/English pdf-booklets loaded with photographs included) in line with the other two parts that we have likewise published, will be a moving experience. These are not just rarities, these are fascinating masterpieces with great value in my anthology in progress of 401Dutch and Flemish operas. The star of this Liefdelied production, Erika Pauwels (see our video interview with her) considered Berthilde one of her favourite Flemish opera roles. With conductor Frits Celis we discussed the merits of the work, in the pdf-booklet as well as on the video interview on our website. As a bonus we have added a unique 1960s interview with Frits Celis on the production, where he guides us through the performance.

Jan Blockx: Liefdelied (integral 1960s recordings + bonus)

Jan Joris (Stavie Dantie), Sylvain Deruwe (Theo), Robert van Helvert (Boer Theunis), Erika Pauwels (Berthilde), Georgette Cooleman (Dina), Jan Stroobants (Rikus), Gerda Tilman (Rika), Kamiel Lampaert (Hansje-de-zot; Jonge boer), Frans De Swert (Oude boer; Guido), Rita Lafaut (Oude boerin), Antwerp, 1960s, conductor Frits Celis.

As a teenager I discovered opera through Leo Riemens ‘Great Operas Book’. One by one I collected anything from Aida to Tannhäuser and ultimately even the rarest works, except two: De herbergprinses (Princess of the Inn) and De bruid der zee (Bride of the Sea) by Jan Blockx. It took a full 30 years of research to finally discover that the last performances of these works ever were, unexpectedly, privately recorded. Apart from Herbergprinses and Bruid der Zee even Liefdelied (Love Song), the third part of the Blockx opera trilogy on city life, sea life and land life proved to have been recorded at the Royal Flemish Opera Antwerp (KVO) in the 1960s.

For those interested in Flemish opera, listening to these recordings (libretti and 150+ page Dutch/English pdf-booklets loaded with photographs included) will be a moving experience. These are not just rarities, these are fascinating masterpieces with great value in my anthology in progress of 401Dutch and Flemish operas. The star of this production, Erika Pauwels (see our video interview with her) considered Berthilde one of her favourite Flemish opera roles. With conductor Frits Celis we discussed the merits of the work, in the pdf-booklet as well as on the video interview on our website. As a bonus we have added a unique 1960s interview with Fits Celis on the production, where he guides us through the performance. RS.
