The ‘fresh, beautiful and critically underpraised’ voice (Gramophone) of Pilar Lorengar is celebrated here on an album of operatic arias, originally issued in 1980 by Decca as a portrait of the Spanish soprano who had entranced audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for three decades. ‘Our Pilar’, she was known affectionately at the Deutsche Oper, Berlin, where she had been a member of the company, and then a jewel in its crown, since her debut at the house in 1958. There she settled for life and sang her signature roles, several of them immortalized on this recital which exhibits her facility in four languages and the special light and warmth of a voice ‘not soon forgotten, especially in an era so heavily populated by cookie-cutter singers’ (Peter G. Davis, New York magazine, 1987). There is Elsa’s principal aria from Lohengrin, sung in Lorengar’s ‘exotically accented but potently expressive’ German (Opera magazine) and one of the Mozart roles (Zerlina in Don Giovanni) that originally made her name. She had a natural gift for portraying Puccini heroines (Tosca, Manon Lescaut, Angelica), and a native’s delight and fresh, eager delivery of Falla (La vida breve) and Granados (Goyescas).
