Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Emmerich Kalman's 'The Duchess of Chicago' is guaranteed to give the most sweet-toothed operetta-junky a sugar rush. It's like a souped up version of Lehar's Merry Widow spiced with paprika and Twenties jazz...Riedel as Mary Lloyd suggests just the right amount of vulgarity with her hilarious American-German accent and Groop's sibilantly impaired Princess Rosemarie is absolutely charming. This sumptuous new release will deservedly further Kalman's cause." ***** -BBC Music
