With some relief, I finish with Ziehrer’s Die Landstreicher (The Vagabonds), a Viennese operetta from 1899. One disc of music, no dialogue, and delicious it is too, conducted by Helmuth Froschauer with a deft cast headed by Daniel Behle’s sunny tenor. Catchy melodies, toe-tapping rhythms, 19 numbers and almost each a winner. It really is a tonic, or more appropriately, a glass of champagne.
