Album Summary

>Weinberger, Jaromir : Schwanda the Bagpiper
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Winfried Zillig arranged this recording in 1948 with a unique cast. The young Christa Ludwig, in one of her first recording sessions, gives an excellent interpretation of this opera.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This one, recorded by Frankfurt Radio in 1948, has its moments, mostly when the personable, warm-hearted Schwanda of Karl Schmitt-Walter is on stage. As his wife Dorota, Betina Brucker displays clear diction and a thrusting voice. Zillig is a spirited conductor.
