Om Wirt und Gast oder aus Scherz Ernst

The subject-matter of Meyerbeer's second opera Wirt und Gast, or Aus Scherz Ernst (also called Alimelek), written in Munich in 1812, was taken from a tale in The Arabian Nights. The story of the man who would be sovereign, if only for one day, so frequently treated in the literature of all nations. The opera is an example of the Oriental or "Turkish" operas which were so popular in Germany during the second third of the eighteenth century. . The orchestra includes, besides the strings, doubled wood- wind, and threefold percussion, only two horns, two trumA-pets, and one trombone. While Meyerbeer's contemporaries were puzzled by the far-A-fetched singularity of the Alimelik music, and the work had no success in Stuttgart and Vienna (6 January 1813; 20 October 1814), Weber had the insight to recognize its true significance. He produced it Prague on 20 October 1815, and praised the "active, alert imagination, the well-nigh voluptuous melody, the correct declamation, the entire musical attitude." He was also impressed by the instrumentation: "It is surprisingly combined, interwoven with great delicacy, and consequently demands almost the care of a quartet performance." Weber's enduring admiration meant that he again produced the work in Dresden years later (1820), when he pointed out how this early opera "bears witness to the composer's singular emotional capacity." This edition reproduces the original Stuttgart MS, reflecting cuts made in the first performance.
