Description: An extended, half-hour long suite of excerpts from Weinberger’s big hit are followed by two works from 1929: a 27-minute set of half a dozen generally tender and nostalgic dances from his homeland (there are 12 of these - 6 pairs of Song and Dance) and another tasty opera overture from a work commissioned by Hans Knappertsbusch after the Munich success of Schwanda. Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz; Karl-Heinz Steffens.
