Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...[Konigskinder] is a long opera. It does not come out to greet you with memorable tunes like 'Hansel und Gretel.' It requires some attention and dedication to appreciate its merits. For the most part, it is musically reminiscent of Wagner's 'Die Meistersinger'... I would recommend this Profil recording primarily to the adventurous who like exploring operas that live on the musical side streets. It is an opera that deserves to be recorded, and fortunate are we that Fabio Luisi and company have given us such a good accounting of the score..." -Fanfare
