Notes & Reviews:

Quite a few complaints have been lodged against Franz Lehar's 'Friederike', from its premiere in 1928 until the present day. How could anyone seriously consider (and serious it was) presenting a historical figure like the German poet and statesman Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in the guise of operetta characters? Despite the controversial subject, there is never a banal melody, always the most elegant instrumentation, and wonderfully constructed scenes and finales.

Gramophone Magazine
The glorious voice of the soprano Kristiane Kaiser in the title-role is matched by the powerful tenor of Klaus Florian Vogt as Goethe. The secondary leads are equally convincing. Sylvia Schwartz's bright soprano offers a happy contrast to Kaiser's Friederike with Daniel Behle as Lenz bringing a darker tenor timbre that sets him off against Vogt's Goethe. The Munich Radio Orchestra revels in the pastoral colourings of Lehár's music, inspired by the Alsace-Lorraine setting, with the flute and horns deserving a special mention. It's a strong... idiomatic reading from Schirmer who never fails to convey his love for Lehár's elegant and infectious score.
