Product Description

Product Description

Leo Falls early career mirrored that of his famous contemporary Franz Lehár. Both were born in provinces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and soon moved to the Imperial capital, Vienna. There they both wrote a series of glorious operettas. Falls The Rose of Stambul, set in Ottoman Turkey, is a sparkling masterpiece that ran for fifteen months, the most successful such work since Lehárs The Merry Widow, composed eleven years earlier. The plot offers comedy, mistaken identity, cultural misunderstandings, exoticism, and, of course, a romance that must overcome various obstacles, while Falls melodies are exquisitely beautiful, with numerous hit songs.

Leo Fall was Lehárs natural successor and wrote sparkling songs and ensemble numbers in operettas that, in the case of this one The Rose of Stambul was through-composed almost to an operatic extent. This recording is a perfect fit for lovers of Viennese operetta.

2.0 out of 5 stars An opportunity missed! 27 Feb 2013
By Rimsky
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a great shame that more money was not spent on this! It is clearly a 'good amateur' production, but the two tenor soloists especially are painful to listen to! and the orchestra has too few strings and lacks competence(listen to the first 60 second to see what I mean!).
BUT, we are unlikely to get another recording and this one gives a fair idea of the operetta, American dialogue and all. However, if you really want to know how effective this operetta can be, search out the 1950 Colgne Radio recording conducted by Franz Marszalek with Rudolf Schock etc. Not only is it stylish in the way that operetta should be, it is far better in every respect, including recording!!

I repeat, what a shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Historic recording 23 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is a very worthy and historic recording. Fall's music is beautiful and the new English translation is fun and very close to the original intent in German. You can hear the energy and drama expressed through this recording from the small but growing company. The orchestra sounds great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recording 21 Sep 2013
By Peter Dunner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The only negative is that it isn't in the original German. Otherwise, it's the only complete recording and well worth having. It's up there with all the other classic operettas and hopefully more will appear.
