Notes & Reviews:
The verve of a fast-paced Parisian salon comedy, Slav vivacity, and a dose of political satire were the ingredients that made Lehar's Merry Widow such a success: a cosmopolitan mix of styles that owes as much of its effect to the shimmering instrumental color as to the catchy melodies. The 1980 Electrola recording was awarded the German Record Critics' Prize: "An operetta that, with its star cast, provides a new recording of evergreen tunes that is successful in every respect."
The Electrola Collection is a series from EMI Classics that celebrates the historic record label, Electrola. Electrola was part of the EMI Classics unit in Germany best known for their rich catalog, masterful artists and the iconic gramophone trademark. This second edition features eleven captivating titles including Otto Nicolai's The Merry Wives of Windsor, Joseph Haydn's The Creation and Rene Kollo sings Wagner and Strauss.
