LÉON JESSEL (1871-1942): Schwarzwaldmädel
Catalogue Number: 09Q090
Label: Warner Classics
Description: This highly successful 1917 operetta, conservative and traditional in style (which no doubt helped in those hard times), made Jessel a "one-hit wonder" as a stage composer and spawned an equally successful post-World War film. Yet this 38-year-old recording remains its only one. No libretto. Brigitte Lindner (soprano), Adolf Dallapozza (tenor), Benno Kusche (baritone), Members of the Stuttgart Liederkranz, Stuttgart Philharmonic; Willy Mattes. Original 1976 EMI LP and 1997 CD releases.
