Notes & Reviews:
Albert Lortzing's operas did not always enjoy a positive audience reception during his lifetime. But Der Wildschutz, which premiered in 1842, was an immediate hit, and has remained a popular repertoire piece in German theaters to this day. The Hermes Opernleikon comments on the 1964 Electrola recording: "The mood of the piece, as well as the music inspiration of the ensemble in particular, are perfectly captured. It's worth buying this recording just to hear Fritz Wunderlich as Krontahl!"
