    I rather like it. It's early Romantic (composed in 1805, I think), and while no one would mistake it for Beethoven, it sounds stylistically closer to him than to, for example, Paer or Mayr, both of whom were active around the same time.

    It's in the Presto cart.

    I see it is a single disk. Is it an operetta or is it a highlights disk?

    I rather like it, but am putting in on the wish list for now as it is a bit pricey and I have been buying a lot of CDs lately (like for the past 2-3 years).

    It's a single-disc dramatic cantata. For what it's worth, Beethoven himself liked the piece and tried to interest his patrons in it. That didn't go anywhere, but I figured if Beethoven liked it, that was a good enough recommendation for me! (And Nylund singing the heroine didn't hurt.)

    Oh Duh. Now I see this is not posted in the Opera thread but the vocal music thread. Now I get it.

    Meanwhile, I am listening to this wonderful piece:

    This is such a gorgeous collection, sung with supreme artistry and beauty by Sergei Larin. Highly recommended. Pity the cover art is so ugly and dated; I bet it puts people off!

    Russian Arias, Vol. 1
    Sergei Larin (tenor); Philharmonia Orchestra, Ambrosian Opera Chorus, Gennady Rozhdestvensky
