Notes & Reviews:

"Jaroslav Hasek's classic World War I comic novel The Good Soldier Schweik unleashed one of the great 20th century archetypal characters: a seemingly simple-minded, guileless protagonist blessed with an instinct for survival in spite of anything and everything. Shortly before his untimely death at age 38, Robert Kurka had completed an opera based on the Schweik storyAlthough Kurka's main teacher was Darius Milhaud, the latter's urbane polyphony is less evident than the Weill/Brecht modernist model with its declamatory rather than lyrical vocal linesThe present world premiere recording stems from the Chicago Opera Theater's April, 2001 production, and it's a knockout in every wayThanks to the folks at Cedille, at long last a glaring operatic catalog gap is triumphantly filled." - Classics Today (10/10)
