Description: The first brand-new recording in quite a while of this sparkling mixture of Italian buffo style, German Romanticism held together by spoken dialogue (all of which is included) in the manner of the singspiel or the opéra comique. Fairly detailed synopsis; pity there's no libretto. 2 CDs. Juliane Banse, Anna Korondi (sopranos), Ferdinand von Bothmer (tenor), Markus Eiche (baritone), Bavarian Radio Chorus, Munich Radio Orchestra; Ulf Schirmer.
