Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"A new recording of Nielsen's second opera, 'Maskarade', and one of the great operatic comedies of all time? No, this is a reissue of the 1977 Dansk Musik Antologi production that appeared in the US on Unicorn LPs. It was widely hailed on both sides of the Atlantic, winning a number of prizes, and reasonably so. For it was well recorded and performed, without the various cuts over the years that, sanctioned or otherwise, eliminated as much as half-an-hour of music. The cast was almost uniformly excellent... If you haven't heard 'Maskarade' before, this is an excellent chance to become familiar with a witty, wonderfully sane, and vivacious work that deserves far greater celebrity than it has ever received." -Fanfare
