Leo Fall (1873-1925): Paroli, comic opera / Anke Krabbe, Andrea Bonig, Jorg Durmuller, Michael Roider, Ralf Lukas. WDR Rundfunkorchester Koln, Alex Kober

Notes & Reviews:

With Paroli (originally entitled Frau Denise), a variation on the Figaro theme of the amorous misadventures of a duped, married nobleman set near Paris during the late 18th c., Leo Fall (1873-1925) succeeded in producing a captivating one-act chamber play that was neither operetta nor opera – even though it does have its share of reminiscences of fairy-tale operas, stylistic quotations of the rococo, discreet leitmotivic technique, and polished ensemble pieces. A prodigious operetta composer, Leo Fall was considered a true rival to Franz Lehár at the turn of the 20th c.
