 Feuersnot Makes the Majors July 16, 2015 By Donald J O'Connor (Kreamer, PA) See All My Reviews "Having heard this great performance, I'm no longer inclined to regard Feuersnot as minor Strauss, but as a first-string offering. The conducting especially makes the music integrated and coherent, not merely just ingenious. The final love-scene - some of the greatest music Strauss ever wrote - is now preceded by 80 minutes of intriguing drama and sometimes humor. In a gallery of strengths, Markus Eiche's Kunrad is a majestic reading and the childrens' chorus, which has a vital and difficult part in the drama, is just excellent. My favorite city, Munich, gets the tribute it deserves." Report Abuse
