Notes & Reviews:

There is more to Otto Nicolai than 'The Merry Wives of Windsor'. When this German composer died at the early age of thirty-nine in the middle years of the nineteenth century, he bequeathed a richly varied oeuvre to posterity. The 'Variations Brillantes' op. 26 for clarinet and orchestra, the featured work of Vol. 2, is framed by two secular and two sacred overtures. The Southern Westphalian Philharmonic under its former principal conductor David Stern is an outstanding cultural ambassador of this German region. The Orchestra of the German Land of North Rhine-Westphalia since 1992, the ensemble regularly guests at the German Opera of the Rhine in Dusseldorf and in the opera houses in Cologne and Essen.
