Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Miriways met with enthusiasm when rediscovered after 284 years in 2012. 'That the score of Miriways...is such a...delight to hear owes...to the Austrian conductor Michi Gaigg and her L'Orfeo Baroque Orchestra...' (J. Gahre in Das Opernglas). Mir Wais was an Afghan tribal prince who led several revolts to liberate Kandahar from Persian rule, a very current political subject when staged in Hamburg in 1728, and now. Telemann's music is colorful, lavishly instrumented, and richly Oriental in color.

International Record Review, May 2014
The score is a delight, revealing the composer at his most colourfully inventive...The performance pulsates with energy from start to finish...The cast, by and large, is strong...Prince Sophi is a soprano role sung with agility and tonal clarity by Ulrike Hofbauer. She provides a consistently rewarding presence...Miriways is, in a word, entertaining.

MusicWeb International, 2nd May 2014
An immensely enjoyable version of what is often described as the composer's best work...The only name familiar to me was that of Heinz Zednik...All the rest, including the two main characters, also sing with obvious understanding of the nature of the work and I never found myself regretting the lack of voices with more obvious star quality.
