Poul Schierbeck: Fête Galante

01 December 2013  Gramophone
Andrew Mellor

Holiday Critic’s Choice

It's good finally to be able to hear this lyric-comic opera by Poul Schierbeck. It's a strong score, masterfully orchestrated, with many shades of Nielsen's Maskerade and a few of Figaro and Rosenkavalier. True, the plot lacks tension; but at its best there's an effervescence and warmth here that are immensely likeable. A superb cast and recording from the Danish National Symphony Choir and Orchestra under Michael Schønwandt.
