Program Notes

Franz von Suppé composed about 30 operettas and 180 farces, ballets, and other stage works. Although the bulk of Suppé's operas have sunk into relative obscurity, the overtures have survived and some of them have been used in all sorts of soundtracks for movies, cartoons, advertisements and so on.

In his comic opera Banditenstreiche, Suppé uses all the qualities that have made him so well loved by a wide audience. The appealing music is brimming with unexpected ideas and written in a light and fluent style. There’s much to enjoy with elegant arias and ensembles, pure Viennese waltzes and attractive ballet music. The arrangement of the overture contains many highlights from this operetta.
