Chor de Oper Frankfurt & Frankfurter Museum, Sebastian Weigle

CD - 2 discs

Normally: $31.25

Special: $25.00

(also available to download from $20.00)

Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days. (Available now to download.)

The uncompromising course of Shakespeare’s play is mirrored in this contemporary opera in two parts (sung in German), music whose almost tangible energy catapults the listener into a realm of irresistible fantasies. Sebastian Weigle, new conductor-in-chief at the Oper Frankfurt, is the director of music.

The Guardian

5th June 2009


“Though not a subtle piece, it is a mightily effective one, and this new recording, taken from four performances at the Frankfurt Opera last autumn, shows its power has not dated. With Wolfgang Koch as Lear and Jeanne-Michèle Charbonnet, Caroline Whisnant and Britta Stallmeister as his three daughters, the performances are very competent.”
