Catalogue Number: 04I059

Label: Profil

Reference: PH07007

Format: CD

Price: $33.98

Description: Standing alongside Nicolai's lustigen Weiber and Cornelius' Barbier von Bagdad at the peak of 19th century German comic opera, Goetz's Shakespeare setting has been practically forgotten on record. This live 1955 radio recording gives as good an account as we're likely to get of Goetz's mixture of Classical form and Romantic idiom with his tonal language deriving from Weber, Spohr, Marschner and Lortzing but with structural influences from Wagner's Der Meistersinger. 2 CDs. No libretto. As this is an official release, professionally remastered, the sound is as good as possible. Annelies Kupper, Elisabeth Lindermeier (soprano), Waldemar Kmentt (tenor), Marcel Cordes (baritone), Gottlob Frick (bass), Bavarian Radio Chorus and Orchestra; Joseph Keilberth (rec. 1955
