Overture: Kaiser Adolph von Nassau, Op. 130 (1845)
An operatic overture by German composer Heinrich Marschner (1795-1861). The Romantic opera "Kaiser Adolph von Nassau", with a libretto by Heribert Rau, was premiered in Dresden in 1845 with the help of Richard Wagner, although it was not financially successful. The plot concerns the historical King Adolf of Nassau, who ruled Germany from 1292 to 1298. Adolf of Nassau was elected "Rex romanorum" (King of the Romans), but he was never crowned Holy Roman Emperor by the Pope.
Conductor: Alfred Walter Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra, Košice
