Notes & Reviews:
The Morbisch Festival on the Lake has a new artistic director starting this year: Dagmar Schellenberger. And, as in every year, OehmsClassics is issuing the recording of the performance of this festival held in the Austrian province of Burgenland.
American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The Beggar-Student, first performed in 1886, was Carl Millocker's greatest and most enduring success. It is still staged in Europe from time to time, and it has had a number of very good recordings. The story takes place in Cracow and capitalizes on the spirit of Polish resistance to German aggression, and the plot is rather convoluted. The music is easy to listen to. The singers are decent.
