Album Summary

>Humperdinck, Engelbert : Hänsel und Gretel
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording of Hänsel und Gretel boasts a fine cast, with Alice Coote a seasoned Hänsel having also performed in the role at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Lydia Teuscher making a notable UK debut as Gretel with Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke's beautiful portrayal of the Witch stealing the show. Robin Ticciati's Glyndebourne's new Artistic Director from 2013, clearly loves the piece, his conducting is nothing short of wonderful, with the performance from the London Philharmonic Orchestra being a real highlight on this recording.

Sunday Times
His Glyndebourne account is unusually spacious for such a youthful conductor, but the LPO and principal singers sustain his tempi admirably. Alice Coote's coltish HSnsel and Lydia Teuscher's diamantine Gretel are near-ideal siblings...Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke steals the limelight with his Mime-like Rosine Leckermaul.
