Everybody knows Jacques Offenbach's fantastic melodies: the snappy Can-Can from his first international triumph "Orphée aux enfers," which had been danced in numerous film classics, or the Barcarole from "Les contes d'Hoffmann." His music sparkles with charming wit, ingenuity, and slapstick comedy. With his famous operettas, Offenbach established a new genre – political cabaret with enchanting musical ideas. Like no other, he hit the nerve of the time of Parisian life in the 1860 and 70s in his over 100 dramatic works. He composed as if on an assembly line. Pieces that flopped landed irretrievably in the bin. This recording by the Leipzig Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Nicolas Krüger is now dedicated to the little-known works that reflect the richness of this unique composer's multifaceted repertoire. In the caustic satires of the times, he turns dogs and carrots into rulers or abducts them to the worlds of knights and the moon: Offenbach Fantastique!

Fono Forum
"Eine originelle Offenbachiade! (...) Das Spiel der Leipziger verrät Augenzwinkern, Esprit und Humor"
Rezension im Magazin Fono Forum von Christoph Vratz, Juli 2020

The Arts Fuse
"Krüger and his band have an impressive handle on Offenbach’s style and, ultimately, that quality shines throughout the disc. On it, all of the right melodic gestures sing and dance; nothing is underlined too heavily; and in those moments when textures get blurred by the sheer excitement of the moment (like in the coda to La voyage dans la lune)… well, let’s just say they’re musical demonstrations of the spirit triumphing over the letter of the law."
