Die Nummer eins unter den Operetten schildert Lug und Trug um das Familienleben des Rentiers Gabriel von Eisenstein und seiner Frau Rosalinde. Eine fein gesponnene Intrige - von Eisensteins "Freund" Dr. Falke erdacht - lässt den untreuen Ehemann Eisenstein bei einem pompösen Fest des superreichen Prinzen Orlofsky auf seine Kosten kommen. Nach einer rauschenden Ballnacht, bei der alle handelnden Personen in falschen Identitäten auftreten, gibt es aber ein böses Erwachen, denn Rosalinde lässt sich nicht ungestraft düpieren

Schwanengesang D 957 by Franz Schubert( )

7 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in German and Undetermined and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Matthias Goerne hat seinen Schubert-Zyklus fortgesetzt und legt mit "Schwanengesang" seine sechste Schubert-CD vor. "Einen durchgängigen roten Faden besitzt Schuberts "Schwanengesang" nicht. Es sind sieben Lieder nach Gedichten von Ludwig Rellstab, sechs Lieder nach Gedichten von Heinrich Heine und eines nach der Textvorlage von Johann Gabriel Seidl. Und doch ist es eine stimmige Aneinanderreihung von musikalischen Preziosen der Romantik. Jedes einzelne Lied bietet ein packendes Stimmungsbild, ob es nun von Schönheit, Träumen, Sehnsüchten, Wirrnissen, Enttäuschung, Verzweiflung, von der Liebe oder vom Tod erzählt. Und eigentlich ist in jedem Lied von alldem etwas enthalten. Und genau das macht aus einem Schubert-Lied, mag es auch noch so kurz sein, eine Kostbarkeit. Beim empfindsamen Hörer geht da eine Türe auf - oft nur einen Spaltbreit - und er hat doch das Gefühl, die ganze Welt passte hindurch. Matthias Goerne und seinem Begleiter Christoph Eschenbach gelingt es in ihrer Neueinspielung des "Schwanengesangs" auf atemberaubende Weise, genau dies zum Ausdruck zu bringen. Sie finden stets den richtigen Ausdruck, die richtigen Farben, das richtige Tempo, um Schuberts romantische Seelendramatik auf packende Weise darzustellen" (br.de)
