Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohns immortal Midsummer Nights Dream Overture was written at the age of 17, but this long-lost operatic masterpiece was created three years earlier! Written when Mendelssohn was 14, Der Onkel aus Boston, oder Die beiden Neffen (The Uncle from Boston, or The Two Nephews) is a full-length, three-act comic opera displaying staggering skill and talent. This is a World Premiere Recording!

BBC Music Magazine
Among the singers, Kate Royal stands out for the warmth of her characterisation in the central soprano role; but the entire cast seems to have thrown itself into the project with enthusiasm.

Opera Today
Helmut Rilling's fine sense of style makes this recording immediately accessible, with tempos that suit the music quite well. At the same time, his deft handling of the orchestra contributes another dimension to this score.
