Notes & Reviews:

OehmsClassics presents a live recording from the Frankfurt Opera made in September/October 2012 with outstanding performers. Konigskinder has been called 'the most valuable opera of the post-Wagnerian period.'

BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
Though none of the Frankfurt performers is a household name, they are obviously a team and Sebastian Weigle, steeped in Wagner, conducts superbly.

MusicWeb International, 7th November 2013
K÷nigskinder is very much an ensemble work, and it is indeed this aspect which is the main virtue of this recording...[Amanda Majeski] sings with great beauty of tone. Daniel Behle as the King's Son also sings with great conviction...The real heroes of this performance however are the orchestra who play with great control and sensitivity under Sebastian Weigle.

Opera Now
It's a beautiful work with some ravishing music...Weigle's conducting is sensitive to both pacing the piece and accommodating his performers...Majeski has the most gorgeous lyric instrument, truly affecting...the supporting cast shows Frankfurt's superb ensemble.
