Notes & Reviews:

The Frankfurt Opera and Museum Orchestra is one of the most important orchestras in the Germans-peaking world. In 2001 it was selected Orchestra of the Year for the third time in succession in the critics' survey of the specialist journal Opernwelt. Currently they perform as a concert orchestra at the Museum Concerts organized by the Museum Society.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Whatever the inspiration, the music is always interesting and often exciting. The overture, with its Carnival-inspired theme, is a joy, and much of the music is both appropriate to the action and just plain beautiful. The recording, from a performance in Frankfurt, makes a good case for the opera. The conductor, Sebastian Weigle, shows firm control of the fine chorus and orchestra. The ladies are consistently good. the most important role is taken by the best singer. As Friedrich, Michael Nagy has a strong baritone of fine quality. His Act II aria is particularly fine. I would expect to hear more of him in the future. In the other major male role, Luzio, Peter Bronder creates a believable character. The entire recording is very enjoyable, as is the opera. With its normal length and Italianinspired music, it might surprise some anti- Wagnerians to hear what the Bayreuth master could do as a young man. The package contains an attractive booklet with synopsis, essay, and cast biographies.
