Schumann’s only opera, Genoveva, is set in medieval Germany - a world of sagas and myths. This is not the only resemblance to Wagner’s operas, as Schumann presents here some of his finest dramatic orchestral writing, clearly paving the way for Wagner’s Teutonic masterpieces.
A stellar cast graces this production from the archives of Berlin Classics, which is in fact the first recording of this forgotten masterwork: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Edda Moser, Peter Schreier, and the tremendous Gewandhausorchester Leipzig conducted by Kurt Masur.
A valuable addition to the substantial and much praised Brilliant Classics Opera Collection.
