Notes & Reviews:

These titles were conferred by the conductor Hands von Bulow, who said that after Wagner there could be no Richard the Second. There is no doubt that, one way or the other, they dominated German music for a hundred years. Here they are represented by works slighter than their major operatic masterpieces, but masterly nonetheless. This popular disc, masterfully conducted by Richard Hickox, is now available at mid-price.
