Notes & Reviews:
The subtitle of Friedrich Klose's opera 'Ilsebill', "The Tale of the Fisherman and His Wife", refers to its source, the well-known fairy tale transmitted by the Brothers Grimm. The neo-romanticist Klose was admired above all for his original orchestration and instrumentation. After its premiere in 1903 'Ilsebill' received much recognition and praise, with Klose even being welcomed as "the new man" of the German music theater. Wagner's influence is in evidence here and there, but the music has a dreamy character corresponding to the action, is never violent even during the most powerful demonstrations of the forces of nature, and offers independent and grippingly succinct developments and methods of intensification.
