Album Summary

>Pfitzner, Hans : Palestrina
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A "forgotten composer" today to the general public, Hans Pfitzner (1869-1949) composed one opera considered a great work by many connoisseurs: Palestrina, based on the life of the Renaissance composer Pfitzner most admired. It has had few recordings, and this definitive performance with great singers of the era has never been available at budget price before. Live performance, 1951.
