Die Politik | Euphonium & Baritone Duet | Richard Genee arr. Dario Salvi
Richard Genee, a highly skilled librettist, playwright and composer is one of the lesser known names in the Viennese repertoire, yet his work is justifiably famous. He is best known for his libretto of Die Fledermaus, Johann Strauss II’s most famous operetta, but also wrote many pieces of music in his own right, including the 1876 operetta ‘Der Seerkadet’. Die Politik, subtitled: ‘Politics requires Wisdom and Skill’ was originally a comic duet for two male voices, discovered by Dario Salvi in the US Library of Congress, and arranged here for Euphonium and Baritone Duet with Brass Band.
