"Pearl's second "Golden Operetta" CD can be welcomed and enjoyed on all counts. Firstly, the selection included several rarities which collectors are unlikely to own already. I wonder how many listeners have encountered the Hartman items sung by Aksel Schiotz, or would expect to hear Lauri-Volpi singing "The Legend of Kleinsack" (incidentally is "The Tales of Hoffmann" an operetta?). Secondly, the singers to be heard include some who excelled outside the golden operetta repertoire in both opera and lieder. This is a generous selection, too: 18 items totalling 74 minutes in all."
