Quote from: DaveF on December 08, 2021, 10:44:50 PMThe overture to Drottningen av Golconda is so good that I would love to hear the whole opera, but as you say, no way of doing so. (Of course, the rest of it could be not so good - there's usually some valid reason why a composer's operas don't gain a place in the repertoire.)
Quote from: DaveF on December 09, 2021, 10:00:20 AMAlthough the general opinion seems to be that even Schubert couldn't do opera, although the overtures are similarly delightful.Just found this, which may be worth investigating: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8021848--berwald-estrella-di-soria(There's no indication that this isn't the complete opera, although at 70 minutes it seems very short.)
Quote from: classicalgeek on December 09, 2021, 01:48:51 PMI see a couple of the opera overtures have had recordings too - either I haven't heard them, or I have, but they didn't 'stick with me'. I'll need to give them a listen!I don't think that's the entire opera - there's a complete vocal score on IMSLP...
Quote from: Brian on May 28, 2023, 08:48:40 AMHerbert Blomstedt has recorded a new cycle of Berwald symphonies - at age 95! - with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. The recordings are derived from live performances. Although I haven't found record label information yet, the orchestra suggests it may be Dacapo?
