Notes & Reviews:
The product of almost 20 years' work, a true fusion of many types of opera, thanks to the buffa elements of Till's trickster personality, the drama of Klaas' death, and the opera engage nature that introduces the characters of Charles V, Philip II and the Count of Egmont. This is the only recording of this significant work. In the title role is Boris Koudriavstev, and Ékatérina Mazo plays Till's fiancée alongside a native cast that contributes to this 'fascinating, important and inspiring issue' (Gramophone).
American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The music and scenes move quickly; never is there a dull moment. The vocal lines vary among recitative, short songs, many like folk songs, and dialog or song-speech. The cast of this recording as well as the orchestra adjust to the varying styles very well. I believe this work could have great success in a modern production.
Personnel: Alexei Martynov , Boris Kudriavtsev, Ekaterina Mazo, Arkady Prumansky, Alexei Motchalov, Pyotr Gluboky, Lina Mkrtchyan (vocals).
Recording information: Moscow (1988).
