Album Summary

>Millocker, Carl : Gasparone, operetta
Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Despite the international triumph of his operetta Der Bettelstudent (1882), Carl Millöcker (1842-99), even in his lifetime, appeared fated to stand in the background. His conducting career everywhere that was not a part of the Austrian musical big time, despite his many stage successes, may be deemed one of the reasons why. Gasparone (1884), the last of his trilogy of masterpieces (Die Dubarry, 1879, being the first), tells the story of the feared Mafiosi bandit Gasparone (or, more precisely, the bandit masquerading as G.) attempting to save the heiress Carlotta from the town Mayor and his son.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Gasparone is most familiar from operetta recital collections. Millocker's original version was revised in the 1930s (not by Millocker), and that version was popular for many years. Any recorded selections from the operetta made in modern times relied on that revision. This new recording uses Millocker's original performance materials. All the performances and sound are good.
