Menotti’s powerful romantic opera Maria Golovin explores the issues of love and jealousy. It premièred in Brussels in 1958, transferring to Broadway toward the end of the year, but closed after only five performances. The composer himself described it as ‘his unlucky work’. Between these two dates RCA recorded the work in Rome with an outstanding cast of Menotti regulars, such as Patricia Neway, and brilliant newcomers like Richard Cross. The LP is rare and this is its first reissue in 50 years. Another rarity is Tossy Spivakovsky’s still-unequalled 1954 performance of the Violin Concerto, which is filled with memorable themes and is a superb vehicle for the solo violin.

"Golovin is witty and romantic. It’s on pretty much the same latitude as Puccini on the one hand and Barber’s Vanessa on the other. The cut and thrust of the conversation is witty and intelligent rather like Barber’s A Hand of Bridge. Listen to the Act III repartee about modern composers as against the greats of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries between Zuckertanz and the Mother. The Golovin recording sounds a little enclosed but it is clear enough and certainly not a trial. As with the other Naxos Menotti discs there is no libretto included. Instead the synopsis written by David Patmore is exceedingly well detailed on a track-by-track basis. This makes it an unalloyed joy to follow the music and keep in touch with the narrative. The Menotti transfers were accomplished by Mark Obert-Thorn who by now should be able to write the definitive work on transferring analogue commercial sources to digital format. It would be no surprise if one of the universities had created a faculty for music transfer science and offered Dean of Faculty to Mark.Go for this wonderful set if your favourites include Barber’s Vanessa and the Walton Violin Concerto..."
