Notes & Reviews:

In the framework of Capriccio's Kurt Weill edition the present CD-Box now offers a collection of the prestigious recordings of well-known and also mostly unknown stage works of the composer. Beside the famous "Threepenny Opera" and "The Seven Deadly Sins" this first of two five-disc sets also includes some rarities like the radio cantata "Lindbergh's Flight", the School Opera "He Who Says Yes" and the romantic Winter Tale "The Silver Lake". Among the vocal artists featured herein are Doris Bierett, Trudiliese Schmidt, Ulrike Steinsky, Wolfgang Schmidt and Walter Raffeiner. Conductor Jan-Latham König leads the König Ensemble and the WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln.
