Chor der Staatsoper Hamburg

The first new opera production under the baton of Simone Young, director of the Hamburg State Opera and GMD of the Philharmonic State Orchestra was a triumph. Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler requires even a large opera house to use all of its resources; this is why it is very seldomly staged.
This significant Hindemith opera is a rarity in CD catalogs as well – in contrast to the many available recordings of the “Mathis” symphony. OehmsClassics now releases a new complete recording, a live recording of the highly celebrated Hamburg premiere from September 25, 2005 with Falk Struckmann as Mathis.
