Reinthaler: Das Käthchen von Heilbronn Libretto: Heinrich Bulthaupt after Heinrich von Kleist Richard Carlucci, Ilia Papandreou, Peter Schöne, Máté Sólyom-Nagy & Marisca Mulder Opernchor des Theaters Erfurt & Philharmonisches Orchester Erfurt, Samuel Bächli

Cpo are proud to present the rediscovery of the opera Das Käthchen von Heilbronn by Carl Reinthaler, a work based on the drama of the same name by Heinrich von Kleist. Samuel Baechli, the music director of the stage production and the CD recording, is convinced that this production will inspire the renaissance of the almost entirely forgotten Reinthaler. His musical style adheres to the example set by Mendelssohn in many respects – as can also be heard on the first ambitious cpo recording of his oratorio Jephta und seine Tochter (9999382).
