AVID Entertainment is proud to present another in our occasional series of Gilbert & Sullivan releases; Princess Ida & Patter Songs
Opening at the Savoy Theatre in 1884, this work was produced between Iolanthe and the Mikado when G & S were at the height of their powers and was widely admired for its score and libretto. Revived in 1954 by the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company this recording, which has been expertly re-mastered, was recorded shortly after.
Alongside Princess Ida we also include Patter Songs featuring Mr Nelson Eddy with Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Robert Armbruster. Patter songs were so named after Mr Gilbert’s formula for lyric writing which included vocabulary full of polysyllables and satire and the ridiculous rhyming of pedantic words. Not particularly admired by his partner Mr Sullivan, it must be said! Our re-mastered recording features an expert in the art of the Patter song, Mr Nelson Eddy a huge star of stage, screen and record at the time.
