Lehár: Die Juxheirat

Lehár: Die Juxheirat


Gerhard Ernst, Maya Boog, Jevgenij Taruntsov, Alexander Kaimbacher, Sieglinde Feldhofer, Ilia Staple, Rita Peterl

Chor des Lehar Festivals Bad Ischl Franz Lehar-Orcheste, Marius Burkert

Julius Bauer, a man known not only for his intelligent, original, and witty texts but also as Vienna’s most influential theater critic, wrote the libretto for Die Juxheirat in 1904. This wild, dizzying, surprising, and bold work was far ahead of its times as well as reminiscent of The Taming of the Shrew – only carried to the absolute extreme. The shrew is a frustrated widow and suffragette, and the male protagonist is just the opposite of a lady-tamer: overtaxed and irritated, he just wants to live out his love. Michael Lakner, then the director of the Lehár Festival, declared in an interview, ‘I am especially fond of this operetta with a story taking us to the United States around 1900. Franz Lehár’s name is above all associated with The Merry Widow, his great worldwide success; a year before he had already written Die Juxheirat. During his lifetime this work was performed only forty times. And we are presenting this conversation operetta in a semiscenic performance.’ The conductor Markus Burkert elaborated and reconstructed this work note by note; the musicians pieced their parts together note by note. ‘They also take this commitment with them into the performance – and play with verve the interesting waltzes, marches, and ensemble pieces. The fact that the Franz Lehár Orchestra also produces a wonderful, transparent, and lively sound makes it the perfect ensemble for the operetta genre.’ - BR-Klassik Operetta Review. A bold and daring Lehár without his otherwise typical sentimentalities – quite the discovery!

Magdeburg Sunday Concerts, Vol. 2 New chamber compositions by Telemann are now made available through intensive research. They are presented in modern score editions focusing on the Magdeburg Sunday Concerts (Sonntagsmusiken). klassik.com described cpo’s first CD with Advent and Christmas cantatas as ‘A treasure trove of brilliant sacred arias!’ The arias on the second disc involve pieces taken from complete sacred compositions and performed in Hamburg’s principal places of worship during the church year 1726-27. The two arias contained in a particular sacred composition were removed from their context for the purposes of publication. The Eisenach court secretary Johann Friedrich Helbig was the author of the texts for the church compositions and the arias included in them. Telemann packed a great deal into the concentrated aria space. It could be said that he balanced the minimum ensemble with compositional intensity and complexity in respect of melodic formation as well as with the thematic design of the basses, forceful declamation and rhythmic scheme, and the large spectrum of keys and harmony.

Silke Aichhorn (harp)

Harp Concerto in F

Silke Aichhorn (harp)

Symphony in B flat


Kurpfälzische Kammerorchester, Kevin Griffiths

Concertgoers and critics alike rave about Silke Aichhorn's entertainingly moderated concerts, and her goal is nothing less than the redefinition of the image of the harp! Active as a soloist and chamber musician, Aichhorn is one of the most sought-after and versatile harpists of her generation. Following her release featuring Eichners harp concertos, she now interprets three harp concertos by Johann Wilhelm Hertel, a composer regarded as one of the most important representatives of the empfindsamer Stil during the German pre-classical period. His concerto oeuvre comprises some fifty solo concertos, and seventeen harpsichord concertos by him are known today. Three works heard on this CD are assigned to the harp or harpsichord: Concerto per la Harpa o il Cembalo concertato. The harp's softer tone seems to make it the more suitable instrument for these charming works of brilliant virtuosity offering top-quality entertainment. Genuine enrichments of the quite compact harp repertoire are in store!

“these breezy, affable concertos, a man at ease with life. A very pleasurable…listen.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2017 ****

Flute Concerto in D major, Op. 283

Ballade, Op. 288

Sonata for flute & piano in E major 'Undine', Op. 167

Sonatinas (3) for flute & piano, Op. 108: No. 1


Tatjana Ruhland (flute) & Eckart Heiligers (piano)

Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR, Alexander Liebreich

Tatjana Ruhland has been described as the Paganini of the flute, and since her debut at New Yorks Carnegie Hall she has been revered as one of todays most prominent flautists. In this release she dedicates herself to Carl Reineckes chamber and concertante flute compositions, all of which he composed during the second half of his life. Along with the Undine Sonata op. 167 for flute and piano, today his most frequently performed work, the recording features the two concertante works written by him when he was over eighty years old. Here the initial dominance of stylistic elements associated with Mendelssohn has yielded to a tonal language that is both electrifying and highly individual. Reineckes music is diatonic in design but so strongly pervaded by semitones and suspensions that it also continues to flow.
