Notes & Reviews:

Live production from the Semperoper, Dresden, in 2012, conducted by Constantin Trinks. S'vanda the Bagpiper (Czech: S'vanda dudak) had its premiere in Prague in 1927. It was followed by productions all over the world, with the work translated into 17 languages. In 1931 it was performed at the New York Metropolitan Opera. The Nazis drove Weinberger into exile and the opera disappeared from the repertory everywhere until it was again performed in Dresden in 1950.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Pohl is an amiable Schwanda. Owens's Dorota is clear and straightforward. The voice has some shine and thrust. Elgr's Babinsky is fluent and properly cunning, and Eder brings a sonorous bass voice to the Devil. The orchestra plays enthusiastically, and the conductor seems to revel in all the wild music from hell. The sound is good. The glossy booklet has lots of photos and information about the history of Schwanda in Dresden.
