 Weigle, Sebastian


In late January, the Frankfurt Opera completed its cycle of the “Ring des Nibelungen” with Götterdämmerung. OehmsClassics is proud to now be releasing Siegfried from October 2011; Götterdämmerung will follow in June. Both audience and press were thoroughly impressed by the outstanding musical performance of the orchestra and singers under conductor Sebastian Weigle.

   "......this “modern” set is a keeper. 

Robert Levine - ClassicsToday.com - September 2012


 "Sebastian Weigle’s sensitive grasp of the mammoth score’s multivalent moods ensures that the performance retains a powerful grip on the listener and the vividly characterised orchestral playing is well recorded in a restricted but not excessively dry acoustic. In addition, the tirelessly heroic Ryan is well complemented by the other singers, perhaps most strikingly Jochen Schmeckenbecher, whose Alberich initially sounds more like the soulful Wolfram in Tannhaüser than one of Wagner’s more malevolent villains. Schmeckenbecher proves far from lightweight in the role, however, and his vivid encounters with Wotan (Terje Stensvold) and Mime—the excellent Peter Marsh—show the Frankfurt ensemble working at its best." 

Arnold Whittall - Gramophone magazine - October 2012


"Production values for the product itself are ... of the first order, including full libretto and English translation, plus synopsis, interesting commentary…and the strangest, most wonderful genogram I have ever seen ... The set begins as it means to go on: purposefully. The opening is fast, but Weigle maintains tension, thanks to the orchestra’s tremendous rhythmic spring. That is not to imply he is relentless, though. He relaxes well into Siegfried’s “Vieles lehrtest du, Mime” ... for example, and he sets up the dark atmosphere at the outset of the second act well. The recording ensures there is much to delight the ear. The lower strings at Mime’s “Mein Kind das lehrt dich kennen” are truly gorgeous ... Weigle’s identification of the variety of textures available in Siegfried and his musical invocation of them is one of the set’s triumphs. Try his handling of the sparse scoring at the critical structural juncture of Mime’s recounting of Siegfried’s mother’s “death” (where Peter Marsh is himself excellent), or the way he delineates the different scorings for Mime and Wotan in their exchanges. He ensures proper dramatic thrust through the Wanderer/Siegfried scene of the final act. The result: gripping Wagner.
Peter Marsh has a typical Mime voice, and is blessed with great diction. When he opens out his voice, he reveals what a powerful singer he really is. Lance Ryan sounds like a proper Helden-Siegfried right from the start. The Alberich of Jochen Schmeckenbecher is superb ... The Brünnhilde is fresh and sounds young ... Kateryna Kasper is a superbly light Woodbird. There is so much to enjoy here ... Recommended."
 
Colin Clarke - Fanfare - November 2012

"This is a fascinating Siegrfied, which, while certainly not lacking in power, volume or intensity, manages to com across as an almost chamber-like performance... It’s very exciting storytelling. I suspect this bright tinta is due not only to Sebastian Weigle’s leadership and the surprisingly brilliant playing by the Frankfurt forces, whose brass is shiny and whose strings shimmer, but to two other factors: the spotless recording, in which the harps and triangle can be heard even when up againist the full complement of strings and winds, and to the casting. In Lance Ryan’s Siegfried we have a true tenor... his Forging Song is absolutely joyful, rather than the chore it all too often soundslike... He’s the finest Siegfried I’ve heard in years ... Weigle’s leadership is paramount. He has no fear of pulling out all the stops but he never drowns out the singers... this ’modern’ set is a keeper."

Robert Levine - International Record Review - November 2012
