LEHAR: Das Land des Lächelns (The Land of Smiles) Berlin Symphony Orchestra - 27 181 XDE

£12.99

Product description

FRANZ LEHAR: Das Land des Lächelns (The Land of Smiles)

The Land of Smiles (German: Das Land des Lächelns) is a romantic operetta in three acts by Franz Lehár. The German language libretto was by Ludwig Herzer [de] and Fritz Löhner-Beda. This was one of Lehár's later works, and has a bittersweet ending which the Viennese loved. The title refers to the supposed Chinese custom of smiling, whatever happens in life. The leading character, Prince Sou-Chong has a song early in the show, "Immer nur lächeln" ("Always smiling") which describes this.

The show was built largely around the performance of the tenor Richard Tauber, a close friend of Lehár, for whom he customarily wrote a Tauberlied – a signature tune exploiting the exceptional qualities of his voice – in each of his later operettas. On this occasion it was "Dein ist mein ganzes Herz" ("You are my heart's delight"), probably the most famous of all the Tauberlieder.

The sleeve is GOOD, consistent with age; old sticker on front.
Records graded visually to RRPG grade VERY GOOD.
We recommend that the records are cleaned by a professional to maximise the sound quality.
