ALLA BREVE

November 09, 1986

JAMES SCHWABACHER: A DISCOGRAPHY. James Schwabacher, tenor; assorted pianists and orchestras. Repertoire 10-OR (mono). While Bay Area-bred tenor Schwabacher currently serves as the director of the San Francisco Opera's Merola Training Program, earlier in his career he illuminated both opera stages and concert and recital halls with a bantam-weight, finely focused instrument of indelible artistry. Drawn from Schwabacher's private collection and adequately remastered, these 19 selections concentrate on the Gallic repertory (mostly Poulenc, Chausson, Debussy and Faure) in which the tenor's temperament and gifts found their natural outlet. If coloristic resources are limited, the singer's refined linguistic skills and his abiding passion for matching word to note often enthrall.
