Info for Donizetti: Maria di Rohan

According to the late Donizetti expert William Ashbrook, Maria di Rohan is the composer s, tautest, most melodramatic opera and shows him, in complete control of his musico-dramatic goals. The work was first performed in Vienna, but Donizetti revised it for its Paris premiere. Working from the new critical edition of the score, with the period-instrument Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under Sir Mark Elder, Opera Rara has recorded the original Vienna version as well as some of the appendices from the Paris revision. Recorded in the studio this set comes with a lavishly illustrated book including a complete libretto with an English translation, comprehensive article and synopsis by the eminent 19th-century musical scholar, Jeremy Commons.

"Opera Rara's latest Donizerri issue is a finely studied, lovingly executed and in every way a welcome account of Maria di Rohan." (BBC Music Magazine)

"Krassimira Stoyanova is glorious: she captures the despair of this troubled character... Mark Elder conducts with his usual fire..." (Gramophone)

"Krassimira Stoyanova is a wonderful Maria, the voice a rich, agile instrument... Where this release wins the day is with the playing of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under Mark Elder: he leads as if this were early/mid Verdi, and the instrumentalists play with real fervor." (Classics Today)

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Ok, it’s a not very snappy name, so we tend to call ourselves the OAE. The OAE is probably one of the top ‘period instrument’ Orchestras in the world. What does this mean? Well, over the years instruments and techniques have changed. We try to be authentic, by using instruments and playing styles similar to those the composer would have been familiar with. You get to hear what Vivaldi actually wrote, not a modern version of it.

You might be wondering what difference this makes to the actual sound. Well, it tends to be a more edgy sound than polished modern orchestras. It’s a gutsy and definitely a less ‘polite’ sound. Plus the OAE is well known for its sheer enthusiasm for music, which comes across at every performance.

Now more than 30 years old, the OAE has become one of the UK’s top orchestras. We’ve released over 50 albums and have toured the world, from the USA to South East Asia, working with some of the biggest names in classical music. We've chosen not to have a permanent musical director, which gives us the flexibility to work with a range of soloists and conductors across a wide range of music.

We are a resident orchestra at London's Southbank Centre, and give around 12 concerts a year there, but that’s only part of what we do. Our regular Sunday morning series Bach, the Universe & Everything combines cantatas with invigorating talks from leading scientists at Kings Place, while our Night Shift series takes our musicians from 400-year old pubs in Whitechapel to clubs in Peckham. We’re an associate orchestra at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and regularly tour our programmes nationally and internationally. On top of that, our education department reaches around 20,000 participants per year around England.

In November 2011 he co-presented BBCTV’s four part series ‘Symphony’ and in 2012 was chair of the judging panel on BBCTV 2’s Maestro at the Opera.
