Composed in but a few weeks by a youth in his early twenties, this masterpiece
which premiered at the Zurich Opera House will no doubt come down in the hall of fame
alongside such gems as Johann Strauss' Die Fledermaus!
Featuring a wealth of compositional styles ranging from gorgeous � la Brahms melodies
to effervescently rhythmical pieces, including jazzy and Klezmer tunes,
set to idiosyncratic, intricate, lush harmonies,
the work was performed to high acclaim throughout Europe during the 11 months
between its premiere in 1937 and its banishment at the Anschluss,
with such celebrities as Superstar Tenor Richard Tauber slated to star in it... 
Thanks to 
Joseph Beer's publisher, Doblinger Musikverlag in Vienna
for orchestrating this important movement forward
in the long-awaited major revival of a Masterpiece!!

The famed Viennese Publishing House
Musikverlag DOBLINGER
