Introduction/abstract

Tonkünstler Orchestra Niederösterreich • Peter Sonn • Czech Philharmonic Choir Brno • Claus Peter Flor
Nicolai • Lortzing • Wagner • Flotow • Weber

The Tonkünstler, the Czech Philharmonic Choir Brno and conductor Claus Peter Flor invite you to a concert dedicated entirely to German Romantic opera.

From the founder of the Vienna Philharmonic Otto Nicolai to Albert Lortzing, Friedrich von Flotow, Carl Maria von Weber and Richard Wagner – the result of this winning selection of arias, choral pieces and instrumental works from the most delightful of operas is a harmonious whole. The arias are sung by Peter Sonn, a native of Salzburg  who, as a much sought-after tenor, carries opera and concert audiences away on a tide of enthusiasm.
