Notes and Editorial Reviews

Oehms Classics reissued this 2008 recording of this controversial production of Busoni's Doktor Faust by Nicolas Brieger in time for the 2013 Munich Opera Festival, because title role is sung by Wolfang Koch, who sang Wotan at Bayreuth in the Jubilee Ring Cycle. This outstanding singer can be assured of an appropriate portion of attention, and this album of Busoni's rarely heard, yet startling music could hardly have appeared at a more favourable time.
