International Record Review
Nedbal's idiom is fairly close to that of Lehar, whose tunefulness he can at times approach if perhaps not equal; but his music has verve and colour, and he has a good dramatic instinct for keeping a plot moving...None of the soloists here is outstanding, in the positive sense that they are a true company and work together as a group with a full and unselfish feeling for one another's qualities.
Like many later operetta masters, Oskar Nedbal received a classical education, in his case from Antonín Dvorák. His 2nd operetta, Polenblut (Polish Blood) became an international success, and continues to be his best-known work even today. Nedbal's next work, Die Winzerbraut (The Vineyard Bride), displays the national color of Croatia. The operetta opens with a tone setting overture featuring the kolo - a Croatian folk dance.Notes & Reviews:
