Sibelius (1865-1957)

Description:

Sibelius (1865-1957) began composing "Scaramouche" in 1912 and completed it in December of the following year, but it was not actually performed until 1922, nine years later. Knudsen's script is a pantomime with dialogue, and the tragedy is that "Scaramouche," a hunchbacked viola player, seduces the wife of a man named Leiron, who is then killed by the angry Leiron. Erno von Dohnányi set the music to music). Knudsen, of course, claimed to have planned the story before Schnitzler, but Sibelius himself was so exhausted that he wrote in his diary, "My nerves are in tatters because I have taken on this work.The music, however, is superb, with the solo viola playing an active role against a string-centered orchestra, and the cello intertwining with it to create lucid scenes. The dances that appear frequently are impressive, and sometimes the music is transformed into Spanish-style bolero rhythms, other times into fantastical, slow music. And the sound is always Sibelius'. It is a magnificent work that blends story and music as if it were an opera. Naxos Japan
