Schubert: Operatic Overtures (BIS: BISCD1862) (Haydn Sinfonietta Wien/ Manfred Huss)
Usually ships within 1-3 days
BIS present a re-release of Schubert Operatic Overtures from Haydn Sinfonietta Wien - performing on period instruments - under Manfred Huss.
The recordings were made in 1997 for release on the Koch/Schwann label, and soon became a collectors' item after its deletion. This re-release has been remastered by BIS Records.
Schubert's music for the stage is much less well known than his lieder and symphonies. Although he had one of his first public successes with the Singspiel Die Zwillingsbruder, most of his works for theatre would remain unperformed for a long time after his death, and are still rarities in the repertoire.
