Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This 2012 performance was recorded at the Erkel Theater in Budapest and has excellent sound. The singing is generally very good, with Bretz's Gara a standout (he would make a vibrant Rigoletto), and Miklosa's Maria has a pleasant voice. The booklet mentions that recordings were made of the 1927 version. Brilliant's booklet offers a good synopsis of the complicated plot; read it before listening to the score. It offers a lot of background information.

From the world-famous Budapest National Opera comes the first in a series of new recordings for Brilliant Classics, Hungarian operas in Hungarian. Ferenc Erkel (1810-93) was among the foremost Hungarian romantic composers, a "Hungarian Verdi". His operas, based on the rich, long and troublesome history of Hungary, were the first to be written in Hungarian. The booklet contains notes on the music and a plot synopsis. The complete Hungarian libretto is available at the Brilliant Classics website.
