Caviar, champagne, a poor lover and a rich husband – simply put: nothing but the bare essentials.
In the Jugendstil, art and luxury went hand in hand. These were the times when painter Gustav Klimt was still applying layers of gold leaf to his portraits of wealthy industrialists’ wives. If there were a musical Klimt, Alban Berg and Maurice Ravel would share the honors: both created sounds that sparkle like diamonds – for deluxe voices instead of deluxe wives. Which brings us to Elīna Garanča, whose expressive mezzo voice seems tailor-made for delicate explorations of human feeling: we need only recall the sensitive souls of the Viennese and Parisian ladies who were stricken with migraines the moment a sack of rice fell over (“Asie! Asie!” Ravel’s Schéhérazade sighs).
