  • Among the first of the Romantic composers, Franz Shubert's prolific output was under-appreciated during his lifetime, due to his harmonically untraditional and thoroughly innovative sound. ALFONSO UND ESTRELLA was no exception; finished in 1922, it was not performed until 1854, upon the insistence of Franz Liszt. The opera is a story about the love of Alfonso and Estrella, which is threatened by advances, both military and amorous, of Alfonso's rival Adolfo. Soprano Eva Mei's pure, clean interpretation of the multiple beautiful arias of the opera is stunning and affecting. This exceptionally creative opera is representative of the work of one of the most adept composers of the lied, as well as the characteristic sound of the Romantic period.
