CARL MILLÖCKER (1842-1899): Der Bettelstudent.
Catalogue Number: 10P075
Label: Oehms Classics
Reference: OC 432
Description: Millöcker was one of the three top operetta composers of the late 19th century along with Johann Strauss II and Suppé and this is his most successful and most famous work. For a subject that has been filmed no fewer than four times, it's kind of amazing that there is currently no other available recording of it, leaving the field completely to this live recording from the Mörbisch Festival a mere couple of months ago. No libretto. Mirko Roschkowski, Erwin Belakowitsch (tenors), Cornelia Zink (soprano), Henryk Böhm (bass), Mörbisch Festival Choir and Orchestra; Uwe Theimer.
