This series presents for the first time the complete Opern-Revue, a collection of 38 fantasies for solo guitar that include some of the world's most beloved operatic themes. Expertly arranged by the virtuoso guitarist and composer J. K. Mertz, Opern-Revue represents one of the most expansive collections of its kind from the nineteenth century. The present edition provides facsimile reproductions of the original Haslinger first editions, allowing the guitarist direct access to the scores published in Mertz's time. Opern-Revue provides the modern guitarist with a vast repertoire of concert works based on the music of Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Weber, Meyerbeer, Rossini, and many others. Wagner and Offenbach, two composers less common in nineteenth-century guitar music, are represented in arrangements by several of Mertz's successors. The DGA Editions Opern-Revue series commemorates the bicentennial birthday anniversary of J. K. Mertz with these volumes.
