Expertly arranged by the virtuoso guitarist and composer J. K. Mertz, Opern-Revue represents one of the most expansive collections of its kind from the nineteenth century. The present edition provides facsimile reproductions of the original Haslinger first editions, allowing the guitarist direct access to the scores published in Mertzs time.Opern-Revue provides the modern guitarist with a vast repertoire of concert works based on the music of Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Weber, Meyerbeer, Rossini, and many others. Wagner and Offenbach, two composers less common in nineteenth-century guitar music, are represented in arrangements by several of Mertzs successors. The DGA Editions Opern-Revue series commemorates the bicentennial birthday anniversary of J. K. Mertz with these volumes.
