Reference: WLCD 0378
Description: This may be one of the most obscure slices of repertoire we've ever offered. A Singspiel composed in 1823, it's only 41 minutes long and is heard here in what must be a radio studio recording in absolutely crystalline mono sound. No libretto. Sanders Schier (baritone), Erika Ahsbahs (mezzo), Antonia Fahberg (soprano), Johannes Hoefflin (tenor), Chorus members of the Städtischen Bühnen Freiburg, Small Orchestra of the Southwest Radio; Hans Gierster (rec. 1962).
