Opera: Restoring Nazi-suppressed ‘Recovered Voices’

When James Conlon premiered the "Recovered Voices" program at Los Angeles Opera last year, the Los Angeles Times noted the "evangelical zeal" with which he conducted works that had been suppressed by the Nazis -- Conlon's musical mission since discovering the vast (and largely forgotten) repertoire in the 1990s. "We presented the work of seven composers to offer a glimpse of the immensity and the variety of the music -- and we had a standing ovation even at intermission," Conlon said between rehearsals for the next "Voices" concerts, which will be performed Feb. 17 through March 8.
