Notes & Reviews:
Although Mendelssohn had a high opinion of his early operetta, or liederspiel, 'Heimkehr aus der Fremde' is seldom heard today. Helmut Rilling and his expert singers and orchestra here follow up their successful revival of another neglected Mendelssohn stage work, 'The Uncle from Boston.'
BBC Music Magazine
There is some attractive and witty music in Mendelssohn's score, especially in the scenes involving a fake night watchman (very well sung here by Christian Gerhaher) desperately trying to interrupt the serenading of his rival. Iris Vermillion and Juliane Banse are outstanding as mother and daughter too.
