Album Summary

>Straus, Oscar : Die lustigen Nibelungen, operetta
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Straus, renewed the most Viennese of all genres, Operetta, with a work aimed at parodying contemporary society. To his great success, every punch Iine was laughed at, and musical allusion understood. There was equal laughter at musical quotations from Wagner's solemnity, dragon's-blood sausage, dachshund dressed as a dragon, and parody of the Nibelung verse metre. Yet what lay, barely concealed, behind it all was also accepted: an attack on military display and Germanic arrogance.

Infodad.com
Die Lustigen Nibelungen is a silly delight, a parodistic journey to mythic lands whose bright music and overall sense of bubbling fun make it worth hearing even if its original reasons for being are no longer especially relevant or important.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Saal 1, Funkhaus, Köln (01/31/1995-02/17/1995).

Gantner, Evangelatos, Heidbuchel, Griffith, Siegfried Kohler/Cologne Radio Orchestra and Chorus

A robust performance of a withering satire, mostly of turn-of-the-century German culture, but also of Wagner and his approach to opera, filled with pleasant tunes for modern listeners. ~ Bruce Eder
