    Deems Taylor - The King's Henchman (New York, 1942) abridged



    The King's Henchman
    (abridged)
    Music: Deems Taylor
    Libretto: Edna St. Vincent Millay

    The Treasury Hour
    Station WOR, Mutual Broadcasting System
    New York City
    June 18, 1942

    Aelfrida - Vivian della Chiesa
    Aethelwold - Jan Peerce
    Eadgar - Kenneth Schon
    Maccus - Gordon Gifford

    Conductor: Alfred Wallenstein

    NB. Sourced from an incomplete tape recording of a transcription disc that is marred by variable speed and numerous skips. The beginning is missing and the recording ends abruptly at 42.45, before the death of Aethelwold.



    BONUS:

    After an almost imperceptible pause of 2 seconds, at 42.47 is heard the 1928 Victor recording of Lawrence Tibbett as Eadgar singing "Nay, Maccus, lay him down."

    Metropolitan Opera Chorus
    Metropolitan Opera House Orchestra
    Conductor: Giulio Setti
    Recorded April 5, 1928
    78 rpm Victor 8103
    Released October 26, 1928

    At 46.44, Tibbett is heard again in a November 20, 1934 radio broadcast of "The Packard Hour," singing the Finale of Act III. The presenter is Deems Taylor. Unfortunately, this excerpt concludes abruptly before the entrance of the chorus. A slightly longer copy of this same broadcast can be found on IRCC (International Record Collectors' Club) CD 818 (Souvenirs of American Opera) in which the running time is 12.18.

    Last, Tibbett's two 1928 excerpts from "The King's Henchman" (including a superior copy of the aforementioned "Nay, Maccus" are added as separate files.

    Libretto by FEDORA BARTOŠOVÁ
    English version by JEAN EISLER
    Music by JANÁČEK
    (first broadcast performance in this country)

    Apart from two early and unconvincing experiments, Osud is the only opera of Janáček's that remains unknown to the musical world at large. Written in 1904-1906, soon after Jenůfa, it was never performed in the composers lifetime. The story bears the imprint of a personal experience. It concerns Zhivny, a struggling composer, and his love affair with the society beauty Mila, which has been thwarted by an ambitious mother Many years later at a spa the lovers decide to elope; but their triumph turns the mother insane so that she causes her own and her daughters death. All this Zhivny recounts to students who are rehearsing his opera. reliving the experience through music of great vividness and intensity.

    Cast:

    Živný, a composer - Gregory Dempsey
    Míla Valková - Marie Collier [in her final recorded performance]
    Míla's mother - Ann Howard
    Verva - Neil Howlett
    Lensky/Suda - Roland Jones
    Konečný - Gordon Farrell
    Lhotský - William Elvin
    Kosinská/A school teacher - Wendy Baldwin
    An old Slovak woman - Yvonne Newman

    Libretto by FEDORA BARTOŠOVÁ
    English version by JEAN EISLER
    Music by JANÁČEK

    Osud was Janáček's fourth opera. Begun in 1904. it didn't receive its first stage performance until October 1958 - 30 years after the composer's death.
