#91 The Smell of Pischinger

This might be a small opera (no overture!) but it's a real gem. Strong, solid harmonies, unorthodox use of counterpoint, demanding voice parts.

Here's a Greek drama in wagnerian settings. The Manager rules unfailingly in his grocery store but he's also a lyrical bloke (3'21''). Minor problems are always quickly resolved but the real tragedy comes at 6'35'': pischinger was stolen and bonuses are in danger.

Composer: Jaromír Vomáčka
Work: Samoobsluha
Recording: Milan Karpíšek, Settleři, Kvartet Inkognito, Jiří Štuchal
