Leopold Kozeluch's Gustav Vasa

Post by lennygoran » Sun May 05, 2019 6:16 am

A friend I know from England messaged me that BBC Radio 3 would be playing the opera gustav vasa by one Leopold Kozeluch on their Thursday afternoon opera slot. I had never heard of this composer before and the opera was done in Finland for the first time since the composers death-a contemporay of Mozart. Regards, Len

Kozeluch, 1747-1818, was a prolific composer, and like you, I have not heard of this opera. He wrote piano concertos, songs, chamber works, symphonies, cantatas, many piano sonatas, clarinet, oboe and English horn concertos, and on and on. I have some 14 or 15 CDs of these works. Most of his works are not found on major labels, but on second tier labels such as CPO, Chandos, Grand Piano, Orfeo, MD&G, etc. Very interesting composer. But I don't know of any opera committed to disc.

Lance thanks-I'd go see it if it came to NYC-we saw 2 operas that are not done too often in the US recently at the Koch Theater at Lincoln Center-Bánk Bán and Queen of Sheba--"The Hungarian State Opera (HSO), one of the world's busiest opera companies." Regards, Len
