Description: For those of you who want to study the performance history of this 1912 experiment in verismo in post-Romantic German opera. Yes, history, since we offered a brand-new recording of it on cpo just over three years ago (see 06M012 of June 2011 for more details). By the way, not only is the 58-year-old Patzak in it but also the young Kurt Equiluz, in a smaller role, just 27 at the time. 2 CDs. No libretto. Julius Patzak (tenor), Gertraud Hopf (soprano), Otto Wiener (baritone), Lower Austrian Tonkünstler Orchestra; F. Charles Adler (rec. March 14, 1956).
