Pol Plançon - The Best of His First Victor Recordings, Vol. 1 (1903 - 1908) album download
The Best of His First Victor Recordings, Vol. 1 (1903 - 1908).
Plançon was described by noted critic W. J. Henderson as 'one of the greatest masters of vocal technique that ever trod the stage'. Renowned for the drama and power of his voice, Plançon has an ease and fluidity of delivery which remains unrivalled. His interpretation of Méphistophélès in Gounod's Faust was legendary; he sang over 100 times during his 10 seasons at the Paris Opéra. Plançon was also a member of New York's Metropolitan Opera where he remained until his retirement in 1908.
This 2-CD set marks the first volume of her complete recordings. Other records from 1903 by Louise Homer and Pol Plançon were similarly withdrawn. There is also a possible musical explanation for the sudden demise of Gadski's first take of the Aïda solo. During the introduction, the pianist makes two rather jolting mistakes, and toward the end of the aria, Gadski seems unsure of the words following her climactic high C. Perhaps, Gadski herself may have requested that the recording be withdrawn. He makes no attempt to find his place during subsequent bars, and remains ahead of the rest until, near the end of the performance, they all somehow find each other. To me, it is amazing that this take didn't just come to a grinding halt. What is even more amazing is that this take was chosen for publication over take two, which is perfectly adequate.
Pol Henri Plançon (12 June 1851 – 11 August 1914) was a distinguished French operatic bass (basse chantante). He was one of the most acclaimed singers active during the 1880s, 1890s and early 20th century-a period often referred to as the "Golden Age of Opera".
