The Specialist’s Guide To…Fantastic, flamboyant Falstaffs: #7

Otto Nicolai’s most successful work was premiered in Berlin in 1849, with an undistinguished libretto by hermann Salomon Mosenthal. Nicolai tests the lower register of his likeable bass Falstaff, Franz hawlata, who makes the most of his opportunities in this charming recording, which also features an enthusiastic Frau Ford in Juliane Banse. it’s light-hearted fun and melodious as you like for an easy listen. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
