Thanks for 'Der Singende Teufel'. It is shortend, but at least we can hear the essence and find out if the critics from the interbellum were right.
It must be for sure that they didn't find enough modernisms in the opera, and so decided to let it fall.
Or maybe I am I trhinking to good of Franz Schreker's music.
From what I heard sofar, it doesn't reach the quality of 'Der Ferne Klang' or 'Der Schatgräber, but it is not a disaster. When I finish listening I will see what I think than.
It is a pity that they have so less (or not at all) info about what was changed. In the past many works were sometimes even heavily cut and I can not find one that was made better.
