First recording of this prominent Latvian composer's fascinating opera.

Along with his brother, the symphonist Adolfs Skulte (1909-2000), Bruno Skulte represented a bridge between the Romantic era and the blooming of modern Latvian music. After arriving in the U.S. in 1949 he devoted his energies to Latvian music festivals and choir directing. This nationalistic opera was one of his crowning achievements, and we are proud to present this first recording.

Review:
"...the opera and the recording are a most welcome delight." (American Record Guide)

"The soloists of the Latvian Opera do great justice to this melodious work. ...[Andrejs] Jansons inspires a most confident and musical performance from the singers and orchestra. This work and this recording are each a delightful listening treat." (Opera News)
