Boris Blacher was one of the most important and most widely performed composers in post-war Germany. In his 1969 opera 200 000 Taler he adapted a short story by famed and popular Jewish author Scholom Aleichem and created a sophisticated milieu study around tailor Schimele Soroker and his family who come to great fortune by winning the lottery. This 1970 recording of the world premiere production stars a stunning Martha Mödl as Soroker's wife and Günter Reich in the role of the shrewd tailor. Director Gustav Rudolf Sellner leads his fine cast meticulously through the comic and self-ironic material and supports the cliché-less score that Blacher conceived for Aleichem's characters. Heinrich Hollreiser conducts the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin with insight and musical mastery.
