Notes and Editorial Reviews

Albert Lortzing was, as John Warrack has noted, "the most inventive composer of opera with spoken dialogue in mid-19th-century Germany" and his skills are evident in this wonderful performance. This recording of Der Waffenschied is the last gem in the highly acclaimed Electrola Collection series of comic operas by Albert Lortzing on Electrola, following Undine, Zar und Zimmermann und Der Wildschütz. The cast is led by Hermann Prey, Lotte Schädle, Kurt Böhme and Fritz Ollendorff under conductor Fritz Lehan.
