Product Notes

Hermann Prey's performance of Papageno was historic, and turned him into the most popular opera singer in Germany. This CD includes a collection of previously unpublished recordings made during the legendary Sunday Concerts with the Menchner Rundfunk Orchester from 1966 to 1992. In a representative series of roles ranging from Bach to musicals, the great baritone shows US all his facets: From the sensitivity of the comic actor to the intense, inmost sincerity of the Lieder performer. At a time when the opera was still an integral part of Germany's media landscape, Hermann Prey made it impressively clear that a broad repertoire and depth of interpretation are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
