It's a sad state of affairs that Englebert Humperdinck is best known for having his name appropriated by a "crooner" from Leicester, and for having his most played compositions being the concert endings he wrote at Wagner's behest for the orchestral chunks from the Ring and the Act 3 Prelude of Lohengrin!
Fortunately, his one true masterpiece, Hansel und Gretel, is wonderfully well represented on recordings, and receives ever more performances in the Opera House.
It is not a work written for children- some recent stage productions have been very dark indeed-any more than the Grimm "Folk Tale" from which it came, and it is best approached by the listener by "buying in " to the innocent sentimentality which this endlessly tuneful work offers. I was prompted to this review by the release of the new Glyndebourne live recording, more of which anon, but I also belatedly purchased this, the Davis set at mid-price taking my tally of versions to 11, and it is with the Davis I propose to start.
Though now on Decca, this was a Philips recording and evinces the problems experienced by their recording team in the Lukaskirche Dresden venue so often in 80's and 90's, resulting in dry poorly balanced orchestral sound, which varies in quality throughout the set in a disconcerting manner.
At times there appear to be a single horn and rather tinny trumpet, and few first violins that are rather scratchy, and at other times the sound is fuller and better-though always dry. This is strange, as so many superb recordings have been made there, well before and after.

this is a very bad recording! Ann Murray and Edita Gruberova have a very shrill voice. You can not understand the words, you can not differentiate when Hansel sings or Gretel sings. It also misses the best known song of the whole Opera which is the Evening Prayer. It only plays the music, not the words. I am so disappointed with this!
