 Joan Rodgers Soloist

As with the previous Il Salotto issue, Pauline Viardot’s delightful chamber operetta, Cendrillon, this latest release focuses on a single work designed for intimate performance: J B Wekerlin’s ‘opérette de salon’, La Laitière de Trianon (The Milkmaid of Trianon).

Just two singers take part in the work, set at Versailles in 1775. The Comtesse de Lucienne (Joan Rodgers) and Marquis de Brunoy (Yann Beuron) have been betrothed by their families, though they have never met. As a colonel in the army, the Marquis is summoned to Versailles, though he confuses the military headquarters, Le Grand Trianon, with Le Petit Trianon, where Marie-Antoinette has established her model dairy. Here he meets a milkmaid (the Comtesse de Lucienne, in disguise) who takes his fancy. All possible misunderstandings ensue, which are, of course, finally and happily resolved.

The composer, Jean-Baptiste Wekerlin (1821–1910), was a pupil of Halévy who spent much of his career as a distinguished librarian and editor of early French operas. However, his own stage compositions won much success in their day, with L’organiste dans l’embarras clocking up more than 100 performances. None of them had a more auspicious launch, however, than La Laitière de Trianon, which made its debut at one of Rossini’s soirées musicales on 18 December 1858.

The recording includes three appendices: Hommage à Rossini, the original epilogue performed when the opera was first given at the home of Rossini on 18 December 1858; Madame de Lucienne’s Romance, originally sung in the 1858 version but not featured in the 1868 version and an Epilogue written when the opera was performed in a revised form at the home of Ambroise Thomas and his wife in 1868.
