Program Notes

The elegant theme from Engelbert’s Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is a musical treat for aspiring musicians. It adapts beautifully for a five- (or more) –piece ensemble and is an excellent work to reinforce good phrasing, ensemble texture and expressive performance.

- Program Note from publisher

Hansel and Gretel (German: Hänsel und Gretel) is an opera by nineteenth-century composer Engelbert Humperdinck, who described it as a Märchenoper (fairy-tale opera). The libretto was written by Humperdinck's sister, Adelheid Wette, based on the Grimm brothers' fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. It is much admired for its folk music-inspired themes, one of the most famous being the Abendsegen (Evening Benediction) from act 2.
