Carl Nielsen's vivid comedy opera 'Maskarade' has enjoyed a natural status as Denmark's national opera since its first performance at the Royal Danish Opera in 1906. On this recording, Nielsen expert Michael Schonwandt leads a sparkling cast of today's finest Nielsen singers and the Danish National Symphony through the opera's delightful yet stirring comedy plot. Recorded in the ideal acoustic of DR Koncerthuset, this is the first studio recording of Nielsen's much-loved opera in the 21st c., appropriately released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Danish composer's birth. Of Mr. Schonwandt's 2007 live DVD performance: 'This performance featuring the finest Danish soloists, musicians, and conductor is unbeatable.' (ClassicsToday) and 'Michael Schonwandt is bursting with vitality and in total command of his forces' (Int'l Record Review).
