Notes and Editorial Reviews

The General Music Director Marcus Bosch discovers "light Wagner" at his debut in Nuremberg in 2011. Under his direction and in David Mouchtar Samorai's production, Richard Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg almost becomes a high-spirited, light-hearted comedy. Wagner's music seems much less laden with symbolism and tragedy. This approach does not detract from the opera's substance which is ensured by the select ensemble of singers, the Nuremberg State Orchestra, and its conductor who thrills the audience and critics right from the start. "David Mouchtar-Samorai succeeds in displaying this opera which has been dogged by Fascism as a light-hearted and jovial comedy ... The conductor Marcus Bosch achieves a resounding Read more success. The Meistersinger has seldom been heard with such a high degree of transparency, gaiety and entertainment ... Albert Pesendorfer with his characteristic stage presence, excellent mimic and gestures and an impressively confident singing voice was the powerhouse of this Meistersinger. A Hans Sachs of this calibre has not even been experienced in Bayreuth for many years." (BR Klassik) Read less
