Bavarian-born Johann Simon Mayr achieved renown as an Italianate opera composer, his earlier work taking the form of sacred oratorios. Gioas is a combination of both forms, being a parody-oratorio closely following Mayr’s opera I misteri eleusini, which was considered by Stendhal to be “among [the] most powerful musical works of the age”. This mythical drama of kings, priests and goddesses was ideally suited for its intended devotional use, and it joins other pioneering recordings from Franz Hauk which include David (8.570366–67) and Samuele (8.572721–22).


   




Review By David J. Baker,Opera News,May 2013

Franz Hauk has an especially congenial, forceful grasp of this music as leader of the capable Simon Mayr Chorus and Ensemble (despite a few glitches in the challenging horn writing). American soprano Andrea Lauren Brown is brilliant and expressive in the fiery role of Sebia, which is enhanced in the oratorio with arias originally intended for other roles in I Misteri. © 2013 Opera News Read complete review

Review By Daniel Muñoz,Ritmo,January 2013

La estrella de Mayr, que un día dominó la ópera en Italia, declinó con la avalancha rossiniana y la pujanza de quien fue su alumno más ilustre en Bérgamo, Donizetti. Hasta entonces, el extraordinariamente prolífico alemán (en su lista de trabajos se cuentan setenta óperas, que han salido por completo del repertorio actual), presentó exitosamente en Venecia, Roma, Nápoles, o Florencia unas obras en las que la influencia de lo italiano (muy especialmente en lo que atañe a la melodía y el tratamiento de voces, incluyendo crescendos netamente rossinianos) está tan presente como el último Mozart. Gioas, presentada en Florencia en 1823, está basada en la propia ópera

Review By HDr,PlatoMania,November 2012

In zijn eigen tijd was Simon Mayr (1763-1845) een zeer geliefde componist; hij werd alom beschouwd als de grote rivaal van Beethoven. Mayr was echter minder revolutionair, maar dat hij ten onrechte grotendeels is vergeten, lieten dirigent Franz Hank en het Mayr koor en ensemble al eerder horen. Nu verschijnen vrijwel gelijktijdig fraaie opnames van de cantate Arianna in Nasso (geschreven voor de beroemde sopraan Isabella Colbran, nog voordat zij de muze van Rossini werd) en het oratorium Gioas. Hoewel Mayr in Duitsland is geboren, bracht hij het grootste deel van zijn leven in Italië door en zijn invloed op latere componisten als Donizetti is duidelijk hoorbaar. © 2012 PlatoMania
